Beyoncé Lets Down Her Guard in HBO Documentary [Trailer]

Beyoncé

Beyoncé gives viewers an intimate look inside her life in her feature-length documentary, premiering February 16 on HBO. Described as “raw, real, and revealed,” the special will feature never-before-seen footage of the pop superstar including home videos from her childhood and candid moments offstage with her family including Jay-Z.

“I always battle with how much do I reveal about myself,” says Bey. “If I’m scared, be scared. Allow it, release it.”

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.

Watch the first trailer below.

    @CHJ, Agreed. Can’t wait for February. She needs to come back real soon and relieve music from mediocrity. That’s the only thing reigning at the moment.

    @Jay-Me, THE STAN WARS ARE GETTING TIRED, NO? IN THE 80′S WE COULD HAVE MADONNA, GRACE JONES & CYNDI LAUPER DOMINATE THE CHARTS WITHOUT BEEF, THEN IN THE 90′S WITH WHITNEY, MARIAH & TONI BRAXTON EVERYTHING WAS COOL. WHY IS IT, IN THE LATE 2000′S WE CAN’T HAVE BEYONCE, RIHANNA & _____ DOMINATE TOGETHER?
    YA NEED TO STOP THE BULLSHIT & SUPPORT MUSIC IN GENERAL.

    Totally agree with you…but as long as ignorance and fear (to reach the outer limits of personal potential) abounds, you gon see “stan wars.” Wasted talent.

    @CHJ, Beyonce is soo overrated…
    Beyonce is a great role model for all of these celebrities, but she isn’t the best female singer in our era …
    People goes overboard …

    I must ask , who is the best female singer in our era or yours ? Because if it’s not Beyonce , I’m confused .

    Most stans merge celebrity into being a musician and that’s not what makes an artist an artist . An artist pushes the envelop and changes scenery with every move they make . That’s Beyonce .

    @parisluv, fraud? rihanna reign? bitch sit your ass down! your fave’s album sales doesn’t begin to touch b’s sales & b’s album was leaked 3 weeks prior. and i know what you’re going to say “ri has 12 #1 singles … she should after releasing 7 albums. fact is ri can’t touch b’s talent, beauty or class. ri is the epitome of mediocrity & so many of you are on that level that why she appeals to you. b strives for excellence & only a VERY few are on that level.

    @Bey Mad, I WILL NOT be tuned in to watch the same wig being blown by a fan. The only documentary i wanna see from BeYAWNce is the one where she’s on the delivery table giving birth to Blu Ivy. She can fake a growing belly but she can’t fake a baby coming out of her p*ssy.

    [Reply]

    Bey Mad Reply:

    @Get Money B!tch, lmao. pressed. 1) what would faking a pregnancy do for her career-wise? yall been wanting her to get pregnant for years & when she finally has a baby she faked it? you fail. & 2) why are you so concerned with her personal life? low self-esteem much? but you don’t have to tune in. she’ll still break records. ^_^

  15. Realistically

    … but why do I feel like this will be just another music documentary following her on tour? We probably won’t get to see what we really “want” to see: Beyonce’s real pregnant belly (to put the rumors to rest), her & Jay-Z arguing (to prove they’re not perfect), little baby Blue (to prove that she’s not a doll), etc.

    ya’ll need to hush with this Rihanna v. Bey madness. They are in the same “family” of artists, and both musical royalty. Queen Bey will naturally slay on this documentary, it looks great.

  18. LosersWillLOSE

    You’re not interested yet you’re among the first group of people to comment on her post? YES that makes all the sense in the world *rolls eyes* Nobody is going to force you to come to her post or watch this documentary and it’s not for you anyway. So why are you here and why are you commenting? ONLY beyonce can get people seething at a 26 SECOND clip of her. That’s power.

    Beyonce, THE PERFORMER, is FLAWLESS! Really in a category all her own. I feel like no one puts in as much hard work and effort into completely entertaining the crowd (live singing AND dancing) as she does. With that said, I feel like Beyonce, THE PERSON, is really rather bland with the personality of a paper bag and the vernacular of a 9th grader. I LOVE hearing her SING and seeing her perform, but when it comes to her just talking…she puts too much thought into what she wants to say and it seems like it always ends up coming out wrong. “If I’m scared, be scared…allow it, release it.” That cracked me up for some reason!

    I love Beyonce, she’s a great role model that uses her sexuality in a way that is tasteful. Beyonce has never had to be overtly sexual, her vocal octave range is excellent and her class speaks for itself. The reason people feel Beyonce is boring is because the way she opens up is candid and she never feels the need to be an open book, why would she need to be an open book when her discography and music speaks for itself. This woman’s accolades in this industry spans more then ten years and Beyonce fans are classy! We follow her because we have a great musical ear. Beyonce is definitely the harest working at her craft but it doesn’t mean that there aren’t other great female singers out there. Although many people diss Ciara I find her choreograpy to be innovative and at the top tier in the female business, Monica and Brandy are R&B heavyweights and several others. The only disgusting specimen to me is Rihanna with her overt sexuality and poor example of what being a woman means and not to mention with all her musical prestige and after seven album her vocals are still not on the level, Thank God for publicity an Jay-Z. Rihanna’s squad is just mad that everytime Rihanna sells a record Beyonce and her husband are still making bank of it, toodles xoxoxo!
