Beyonce is usually quiet about her marriage to Jay-Z, but she recently opened up to GQ about how she and her rapper husband keep their relationship strong.

GQ published outtakes on Tuesday from the February cover story with Beyonce.

"I was independent before I met my husband, and we have such a natural chemistry and a genuine relationship. I've seen, growing up, when a woman or a man in a relationship -- it doesn't matter which one -- doesn't feel confident, they feel a bit trapped," she said. "Your self-worth is determined by you. You don't have to depend on someone telling you who you are."

Beyonce and Jay-Z began dating in 2002 and married in April 2008. Beyonce gave birth to the couple's daughter, Blue Ivy in January 2012. Jay-Z revealed that Beyonce had suffered a miscarriage before Blue Ivy's birth in his song "Glory," released the same month.
