the new issue of Harper's Bazaar, the 27-year-old singer and style star
opens up about the types of guys she dated in the past before
eventually finding love with video director Alan Ferguson.

while," Knowles said, before dishing on how those earlier relationship
missteps have influenced her music. "It's a f*cked-up thing -- without

lot of ways, emotionally and mentally, I feel far older than 27," she
told the magazine. "Just going through a marriage and a divorce -- which
I essentially did by 21 -- will give you an insane amount of
perspective on life."
Today, Knowles's relationship with Smith
remains as friendly as ever. "We co-parent really well," she said. "I'm
able to say, 'I need to finish this album, can you step up and take care
of the boy?"
