Beyonce celebrates World Humanitarian Day with Kid President - see video
Beyonce took a break from her Mrs. Carter Show Tour to spend World Humanitarian Day with the Kid President of the United States.
The singer, who taped her interview with the Kid President of the United States prior to cutting her hair to a pixie 'do, sat down with the young YouTube star, whose real name is Robbie Novak, to discuss World Humanitarian Day, an event the United Nation holds every year to recognize individuals who face danger and adversity in order to help others.
To help kick off its "The world needs more ... " campaign, Beyonce told Kid President her mother was the one who encouraged her from a young age.
"My mother encouraged me and I think it's so important at that age to feel safe and to know that you have someone there supporting you and standing by you," Beyonce said in the interview (check out the video below.)
Beyonce, who lent her song "I Was Here" to World Humanitarian Day's 2012 campaign, also told Kid President, who appears shy and enamored by the singer in the interview, why helping others is such an important part of life, saying overall the world "needs more strong and empowered men and women."
"I know it's so admirable, people around the world who dedicate their lives to other people. I think it's so important for us to take some time and be unselfish and have compassion, because we really can impact the world."
Beyonce tweeted about World Humanitarian Day to her over 11 million followers, saying, "Today is World Humanitarian Day. Another Day to #Beygood #TheWorldNeedsMore."
