In the HBO documentary Life is But a Dream set to air February 16, Beyoncé shows her vulnerable side as she reveals sonogram footage and the downsides of fame.
Beyoncé is constantly questioning how much of her personal life she should reveal to the public. She seeks the spotlight yet shies away from it at the same time. Since she is constantly scrutinized, when to open up about her pregnancy became an even more important decision.
"They keep putting me in these tight clothes and trying to hide it. It's very difficult," she said in the trailer for the upcoming HBO documentary she directed, Life is But a Dream. "I don't know how I'm going to do this."
She further admits to having her fair share of rough times, despite her world-famous status.
"People see celebrities and they have money and fame, but I'm a human being. I cry. I get scared. I get nervous just like everyone else.”
The documentary will showcase everything from home movies to professional glamour photos and concert footage. The trailer gives us a glimpse of how personal Beyoncé gets when she details the doctor appointment where she saw a sonogram of the future Blue Ivy Carter.
According to The Huffington Post, Beyonce chose to air her documentary on HBO because the channel is daring and isn’t afraid to take risks. "HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity," said Beyonce. "Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming. This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home."
Michael Lombardo, the president of HBO programming, believes audiences can look forward to seeing an entirely new view of the woman we have watched blossom as an artist. "Everybody knows Beyoncé’s music, but few know Beyoncé the person. Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman."
Beyoncé is going to be extremely busy in the coming months. People Magazine reports on January 21, she will be singing the National Anthem at President Barack Obama’s inauguration. She will also reunite with fellow Destiny's Child members for the first time since 2007 during a halftime performance at the Super Bowl. A Destiny’s Child greatest hits compilation album will be released on January 29.
