Beyonce: “I Don’t Want to Lose My Curves

 Michael Thompson for Allure

Beyonce wants to stay bootylicious.

"I always say, 'I don't want to lose my curves.' I like firm curves," the singer, 28, tells the February issue of Allure. "You can never do enough squats, you can never do enough sit-ups.  I like for women to look feminine."

She also opens up about having babies with Jay-Z, 40, whom she wed in April 2008.

"I definitely want to have a child, but I know from my nephew it's a lot," she says, referring to little sis Solange's son, Daniel, 5.

"I hope that these things will just happen naturally. I still haven't had time to relax," continues Beyonce, who has been touring with her "I Am…Sasha Fierce" album.

Before starting a family, she's having fun — and getting into trouble, she says. When asked about her good girl reputation, Beyonce insists, "Trust me, I'm not at all." (Still, she admits a fave hobby is playing Spades online — "I love it… it's really fun because no one knows it's me.")

Adds Beyonce of being a role model, “It is hard living up to people thinking that about you.”
