Beyoncé Documentary Coming to HBO in February

Beyoncé

Beyoncé is taking over your television set this February. Not only will the superstar singer headline the Super Bowl halftime show in New Orleans, she will star in an HBO documentary later in the month.

The “Single Ladies” singer will debut a feature-length documentary on HBO on February 16, 2013. Directed by Bey herself, the film will provide “raw, unprecedented access to the private entertainment icon and high-voltage performances.”

“HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity,” said Beyoncé. “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, president of HBO Programming, added, “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.”

The documentary will feature footage of her childhood in Houston through home videos and showcase her role as a mother and businesswoman as she builds her company, Parkwood Entertainment. Viewers will get to witness the physical and emotional demands as she records, rehearses for live performances, and balances family life, culminating with her return to the spotlight following the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.

    For Beyonce to get back on top next year she is literally going to have slay like she’s trying to snatch Michael Jackson’s wig. This means radio tours, EPIC videos, sickening fashions, beautiful photo shoots, interesting views and amazing songs. She can’t even afford to semi slay, it needs to be a full clean multiple wig snatch cause Rihanna set the bar so high she has no choice but the really slay this era.

    @The World, How have Rihanna set the high? She’s not the biggest female pop star in the world, that goes to Adele she slayed 2011 and still selling in 2012 and 2010 it was Katy Perry. So what bar has she set?

    @Mya, when you think ‘biggest female pop star in the world’ you don’t think Adele or Katy Perry… You think Beyonce or Rihanna. They are in their own lanes and they score too high for anyone else to even catch up

    @Realist, I was with you till you mentioned that talentless hoe. All Rihanna has done is bombarded the market with shallow, commercial garbage & slutty visuals that means that the real singers like Beyoncé who wanna push the bar in contemporary music have to work harder to work harder. I hope she does slay like never before because I miss her.

    @Realist, says you … b’s in her own lane of legend in the making. with NO major promotion, her album 4 easily outsold ri’s unapologetic. and ri did a mini world tour, a playboy spread in gq, etc. ri is a typical contrived pop star like britney. her expiration is approaching. but i love how a simple person such as yourself is giving b,an international star in both movies & music, career advice. why don’t you apply that theory to your shit shoveling job?

    Haaaaaa. These other C-list celebs settle for $2,000/episode VH1 reality shows. The Queen produces her own classic feature film on one of the most historical channels of all time. Eat dust.

    She’s trying to be more open to fans because rihanna change the game with social media. People can relate to rihanna she talks to her fans. Beyonce only send You an email when she have shit to sell.

    @xedos, Lady Gaga change Social Media, since Gaga started calling her fans lil monsters every pop star has followed. Let’s not. 100% sure Beyonce won’t be posting pctures of her smoking drugs, she has class. PLUS this is a television program a documentary, learn the difference from a documentary and a tweet.

    Beyoncé is not worried about out-doing anyone. 15 years deep, she has nothing to prove. She knows her business and she knows how to make money. I.E. Her net worth.

    I have to agree. At this point Bey doesn’t have to compete with anyone. She has her own lane. I don’t even see anyone else in it with her because the music and the “message” is just so different. All she has to do is be true to herself. That is what her fans want to see from her and I think she knows it. I also think that she knows that “social media” does not make talent or stardom. It may make celebrity but that is fleeting.
