Beyoncé Reveals Herself in ‘Life Is But a Dream’ HBO Documentary [Trailer]

Beyoncé

Following her GQ cover, Destiny’s Child album announcement, and new song “Nuclear,” it’s been one exciting week for Beyoncé fans. The global megastar caps it off by releasing another trailer from her upcoming HBO documentary, Life Is But a Dream.

The typically-reserved singer gets candid, revealing her personal battles and sharing never-before-seen footage of her pregnancy including Blue Ivy’s ultrasound.

“I set a goal and my goal was independence,” says Bey as she balances her personal and professional life.

She is seen rehearsing for her shows and concealing her pregnancy with tight clothes. “I don’t know how I’m gonna get through this,” she says.

“People see celebrities, they have money and fame, but I’m a human being. I cry. I get scared. I get nervous just like everyone else.”

The film premieres Saturday, February 16, at 9 p.m. on HBO.

    I am ecstatic right now, I can’t wait to see the entire documentary, it’s a shame that she had to prove all of the haters wrong! I knew she was not lying, Beyonce doesn’t have time to walk around frontin with a fake belly on, in case the haters have not noticed she is the HARDEST working woman in show biz and she is not gonna stop! Haters stay mad!

    I like the song first off it’s very chill but the banging single will be for her OWN album. Why would she put a bunch of effort into a song for a Valentine day album with a bunch of old a$$ songs on it? LMAO get a clue.

  18. Seriously

    are people really that stupid to believe that beyonce was really pregnant. I guess every fat girl with a a big belly is pregnant too. Beyonce is lucky that she has a really stupid fan base that is clouded by marketing, make-up and wigs. This girl will do anything to stay relevant. A goal to be independent ? I am laughing my ass off at this girl. But I love it that Beyonce is desperate because we are now seeing exactly how far she will go for money and fame. exactly how much money do you need beyonce ? Oh i forgot, your plastic doll needs a 1 million dollar teething ring. Damn foolishness. Beyonce is damn fool and whoever thinks she is greatness is even more foolish.

    @Seriously, NO, whomever wastes their time commenting on a post of a person they don’t like is a fool … GTFOH! NO LIFE I SEE but while you’re playing the part of a keyboard gansta’, she’s still going to the bank. AND you dear looser will be one of the MANY that watch her hbo doc because you just can’t help it you secret fan you! p.s. just because she didn’t get fat & nasty (like you or your mom, or your sister) or because she’s not a baby’s mama (like you or your mom, or your sister) doesn’t mean she wasn’t pregnant. it just means, she cares enough about her body & brand to keep it together. thank you for coming by … GOODnight!

    Not to mention her walking around with Foxy’s left overs!

    And please! My fav has 3 successful album’s, made billions, and is sitting at home enjoying life, while your fav is out having fake babies… LET’S NOT!

    Should I read this heaux ? That was no question ..

    Just because Foxy was poor & didn’t know her father , doesn’t make her a better or more solidified “artist” than Bey . U can get on easily as a woman , especially w/ Hov WRITING ALL YOUR LYRICS . WOOO , Ric Flair issh .

    Bey stans know that BACK IN THE DAY , Hov was quick to be around a b*tch that would suck his dick w/out issh to it .. I would too .

    Jay-Z wrote her some successful songs , don’t know bout albums . Billions ? Foxy owes over $700000 in BACK TAXES .

    Quit .

    Foxy Got That Ill Na Na Reply:

    @RealIssh, *Looks around* who did you “read” tho? Because it sure as hell wasn’t me.

    You sound stupid! Foxy was never poor, and she knew her father, problem is: never once did she have to depend on HIM! (unlike somebody else). Let’s be real b*tch, if it wasn’t for Bey’s daddy, and those back up singers, SHE WOULDN’T BE SH*T!

    And you speak on “lyrics” but 99% of Bey’s music isn’t even written BY HER! Didn’t Keri have to get in that a*s once upon a time for claming sh*t she didn’t write? And you say “Jay was quick to be around a b*tch that would suck his d*ck w/out issh to it”? LMAO! I guess you would say that because didn’t he start dating Bey in 03?

    Foxy has 2 platinum albums, and 1 gold, and so what if she “owes” taxes, Beyonce OWES credit to the family she got “Blue Ivy” from, but do you see her doing that? LOL! B*tch have a seat and don’t get back up.

    Still don’t understand why people still think that a documentary can shed light on Beyonce’s pregnancy, don’t people know about body doubles, I mean they do it all the time in Hollywood and Lord knows Beyonce is rich enough she can afford one. I am curious thou as to why the pregnancy has become the selling point for this documentary.

    She Always Makes Documentries About The Same Shit… Her Music! As If People Don’t Already Know How She Got Famous And If People Don’t Already Know What It’s Like For Her Behind The Making Of Her Music, Performances And Videos. Come On Beyonce Give Your Fans Something New. Like Raw Footage Of You At Home With Your Daughter, Husband, Mom, Sister, Dad, Nephew Or You Chillin With Kelly And Michelle. You Going Shopping, To The Movies, To Another Celeb’s Concert.. SOMETHING!!!! See, This Is Why I Can’t Be No Beyonce Fan. She Does The Same Shit Over And Over And Over Again. Her Documentries, Music, Music Videos And Performances Are Always The Same. Smh!

    KaramelKisses Reply:

    @LOLA, “See, This Is Why I Can’t Be No Beyonce Fan.” first off, go back to school … where you have “no” there should be an “a”. secondly, i’m sure beyonce is crying because you’re NOT a fan however i believe secretly you are. why waste your time commenting if you’re not? oh, you’re a LOOSER w/ no LIFE! this is a doc about her journey, her testimony so why would she change it to entertain you? you’re either going to watch or not and i think your loosing ass WILL be watching!

    @KaramelKisses, I agree 100% with LOLA. Bey should still be hanging w/ Kelly & Michelle because DC was the group back in the day. But you can’t start just attacking everyone because they don’t see things the way you do… And gloating that you’re a UGA alumus is very bad especially with all the ignorant, profanity laced stanning and trolling you do. Is that what they teach you to do at UGA. Oooh girl, spill the tea and shame the devil…!
