Beyoncé Knowles wants to be a mom – but not just yet.

Asked in the June issue of France's Questions de femmes magazine if she wants kids, she says: "Yes, in 10 years! For the moment, there are still so many things I need to accomplish."

The singer, 25, and boyfriend Jay-Z have long shot down wedding rumors, and in January Beyoncé told InStyle: "You can't rush a man into anything – whether it's a relationship, marriage or having children. When he's ready, he'll let you know."

But the couple are still going strong: They were spotted on May 22 at the Naomi Campbell's de Grisogono-sponsored birthday party at the exclusive Hotel du Cap near Cannes (Beyoncé kicks off a British tour on Friday).

Questions de femmes also asks what she likes to do when she isn't working. "I used to do some painting but I don't have time anymore – I have to start again," she says. "I like to watch the Discovery Channel and from time to time DVDs. It depends on how I feel."

She also insists that, although she always looks immaculate when she goes out, she's really low-maintenance. "I actually don't like wearing make-up, I'd rather be natural," she says. "My hair is natural and when I go out I don't need to spend hours deciding what I will wear or which make-up to put on. I know exactly what I want."
