When Oprah Winfrey puts her stamp of approval on something, it’s a pretty big deal.
It was no surprise when Oprah gave Beyonce’s new documentary, Life is But a Dream, a glowing review. Oprah attended the premiere of the HBO documentary in New York on Tuesday night, CNN reports.
“I only did this for you!,” Oprah told Beyonce. “I haven’t been on a red carpet in God knows when.”
OWN is airing a new Oprah’s Next Chapter this weekend featuring Beyonce. Oprah couldn’t get enough of the film, calling it “empowering” and a “game changer.”
Oprah says fans will get an inside look at Beyonce’s life, instead of the well-known “Crazy In Love” singer.
Beyonce said she was ready to make the documentary and hopes others will be inspired by her story.
“I’ve learned so much about myself…It was hard to relive some of those things but I felt like I had a story to tell and hopefully it will inspire a lot of people give them hope,” she said. “I’ve directed some of my concert films and videos and finally after I laid eyes on my daughter [Blue Ivy], I felt like I know who I am and I’m ready to tell my story. It gave me a lot of bravery.”
MTV News reports the documentary got its name from one of Blue Ivy’s favorite songs, “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.”
