Beyoncé to Direct and Star in New Documentary

Beyoncé

Beyoncé has always been a private person, but she plans to give the public a glimpse into her life in a new documentary.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the 30-year-old singer and her agents at ICM have been pitching a non-fiction film to Hollywood studios surrounding the new mom’s life and career.

The movie is said to be “a mix of music and personal study, blending concert footage with confessional interview.” Beyoncé stars, directs, and serves as producer. Around 20 minutes of footage has been previewed for distributors.

This would not be B’s first time dabbling in documentaries. She chronicled her return to the spotlight after a brief hiatus on MTV’s mini-documentary “Beyoncé: Year of 4,” which aired in June 2011.

Pop’s biggest stars are turning to the big screen as of late. Both Justin Bieber and Katy Perry have released 3-D documentaries, with Bieber’s Never Say Never becoming the third highest-grossing doc of all time with $73 million.

    Beyoncé always does behind the scenes documentaries for her concerts and albums. How would this be something new? Eye is just creating buzz for her new projects.

    @cindy, You are probably too young and stupid to know: “In Bed With Madonna ” was the first music documentary of its kind.
    Go back kids and do homeworks.
    The people she is selling to is YOU:
    The Undereducated, superficial and one track minded youth!
    She was caught more than once stealing other peoples work! Like her last 10 videos LMAO

    I love Beyonce, but there’s a chance this is unnecessary. She’s got a great new website up with tons of personal pics, has released many behind-the-scenes clips of tour rehearsals, studio sessions, along with snippets of her non-work life. I’d rather her invest the time in new music, but hey, we’ll see how it turns out.

    Whoever said Beyonce isn’t hot, cough @MinajRules2012 cough, is a flop. Beyonce is the hottest artist and has been for the past decade.

    This should be interesting. I was hooked when I watched “Beyonce: Year of 4.” I thought that gave a good glimpse of where she was in her life at that point. But now that she is a new mom and moving on with her career, I bet people will be really interested in this.

    What is there left to know about her that haven’t already been revealed …?

    I love her and all but she is just getting annoying. Why doesnt she do what Alicia Keys did and go away for like 2-3 years and do a comeback.

    LOL! This is what happens when your album flops.

    This woman can’t stand to be out of the spotlight. If Katy Perry’s move flopped, why do they feel Beyonce will be a bigger sales.

    @Static, Platinum plaques are flops ? Shyt , Thanx for the heads up .

    Well Im seeing a split crowd. Bee definitely needs to give us some new music. 4 was way too laid back for it hold everyone over for the long haul. This movie thing sound interesting but I hope its the accessory to a NEW ALBUM. …OR maybe even a tour with more than 4 dates. I love this woman! BUT GOD, we need to see more of you. And hear more from you. :( …and soon!

    Can’t wait!! But I need some new music as well. No pressure though…I would prefer it if she takes a little longer to perfect the new album.

    I think this would be cool, but I really want her to focus on what she has already. She has a new album to record, 2 new movies, and a soundtrack for A Star is Born. This movie would do really good being as though, every time she releases news about herself, it breaks records. So if she decided to do this, I wouldn’t be mad about it.
