Tuesday night, Beyonce privately shared her new HBO documentary, “Life Is But a Dream” at New York’s Ziegfeld Theatre. If you’re a Beyonce fan, by now you’ve saw and read teasers about just what the documentary will unveil about the 31-year-old mother.
The quick and dirty is, it will show personal conversations, home movies of the Grammy-winning singer and her two sisters and personal matters like her miscarriage. What’s more? Reportedly, the documentary will also address rumors that she faked her pregnancy (and used a surrogate) and the scandal around firing her father (Matthew Knowles) as her manager. During the event, Beyonce unveiled what inspired her decision to produce such a revealing documentary:
“I hope that she will see all of the beautiful times (and) all the tough times that led up to her being here. I’m hoping that … it can comfort her and inspire her in her life when she needs it.”
She also called it therapeutic.
“I really grew so much. This movie has really been my therapy. I’ve healed from so many wounds and I’ve been able to understand why some of the things I’ve been through, why I went through, so feel really proud, and hopefully I can inspire other people. I felt that after 16 years of being a public singer, people didn’t know who I was. I will always keep certain things to myself because it’s only natural.”
Oprah Winfrey made a surprise visit to the premiere (she’s scheduled to be on her ‘Next Chapter’ show), and posed with Beyonce on the red carpet. “Life is But a Dream” airs Saturday on HBO.
