Beyonce Inspired by Celine Dion to Sing to Blue Ivy in Special "Mommy Voice"

Frank Micelotta/Invision for Parkwood Entertainment/AP ImagesBlue Ivy Carter is one lucky girl, because she gets to hear her mom, Beyonce, sing to her all the time.  But Bey has revealed that when she serenades baby Blue, she doesn't exactly sound like she does when she's belting out "Crazy in Love."

Appearing on the British TV show Daybreak, Beyonce told interviewer Kate Garraway that she uses what she calls a "mommy voice" when she sings to her daughter.  "I keep my Beyonce voice for the stage and I have my simple mommy voice," she laughs.  "I remember hearing a story about Celine Dion and she's like, 'When I sing, my' -- I don't know if it was her son that cried -- and I'm like 'That is so interesting, she has the most beautiful voice in the world, and she's like, "He hates it!"'

"So I said, 'Well, maybe, I'll just, like, give a little simple nursery rhyme voice to my daughter!" Beyonce said, laughing.

During the same interview, Beyonce said her public persona wasn't the same as her private one.  "People take me a lot more seriously than I do," she revealed. "Definitely I’m a goofball."

The interview was to promote the upcoming animated film Epic for which Beyonce does one of the character voices.
