According to the Diva hitmaker, being 40 has given her a sense of freedom and criticised society for making it look like women are aged when they hit that age.

"Whoever tried to condition women to feel that we are supposed to be old or unhappy when we turn 40 got it all the way messed up. This has absolutely been the best I have felt in my life. I'm so grateful to be grown," she wrote.
The mother-of-three, who turned 40 on September 4, says she now feels liberated as she finally gets to enjoy the fruits of her labour.
"The more mature I become, the more I understand and the deeper my joy grows. There's a freedom and liberation knowing that I've made it to the other side of my sacrifice. I'm finally giving myself permission to enjoy the seeds I've worked so hard to plant my whole life," she added.
She also added that this year has taught her to live in the moment and how important it is to stop and smell the roses during the good times as life can get hard at times.
