With the economy as jacked up as it is, you need to watch how you spend.  Even though she’s making a lot more than you and I, Beyoncé has revealed that she is not motivated by money, and says she is a “very frugal” spender.

Speaking to The Mirror, the singer and actress admitted that she prefers to invest her earnings rather than splash out on fancy items.

“Honestly, I’m very frugal. I haven’t bought a car since I was 16 or any diamonds since I was 17,” she said.

“I have a lot of property. I’ve invested my money and I don’t have to make any more, thank God, because I’m set. I’m now able really to be free and just do things that make me happy.”

Discussing her reasons for being careful with her cash, she said: “I want to have a long career, be respected and not go off track. It’s an effort to stay grounded.”

We love the fact that B is an independent woman and does not need to rely on Jay’s stacks.
