Video: Beyoncé – ‘Self-Titled’ Documentary [Part 2]


Beyoncé strives for “Imperfection” in Part 2 of her “Self-Titled” mini-documentary. The superstar singer, who surprised her fans with her visual album, reflects on losing “Star Search” as a child.

“It was the best message for me,” said Bey, whose song “***Flawless” was inspired by that moment. “The reality is, sometimes you lose, and you’re never too big to lose, you’re never too smart to lose. It happens and it happens when it needs to happen.”

She reveals how she discovered Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche and the message behind her new music. “My message behind this album was finding the beauty in imperfection,” said Bey.

While she worked hard as a child, she realizes that she missed out on a lot. “The trophy represents all of the sacrifices I made as a kid, all of the time that I lost being on the road, in the studios as a child. And I just want to blow that shit up.”

She now knows what’s most important in life. “Nothing feels like my child saying, ‘Mommy.’ No nothing feels like when I look at my husband in the eyes. Nothing feels like when I’m respected, when I get on the stage and see that I’m changing people’s lives. Those are the things that matter.”

Her final advice? “Enjoy ya life. It’s short. That’s the message.”

Watch Parts 1 and 2 of her “Self-Titled” documentary below.

    So inspiring. Like @meme said, this is very revealing because for a long time people saw Beyonce as “the woman who has everything.” Gorgeous looks, talent, mega-success, an equally successful husband and now she has a child. She’s sacrificed a great deal as a child to be where she is today and as I fan I’m happy that she didn’t lose her mind like other young stars who were introduced to showbiz early. Many things can be said about Beyonce but one that rings clear is that she wants to be great and by all means sh is.

    That was so inspiring… No matter what people try to say about her she is really a smart woman… This was dope. THIS just made me buy her album.

    I was waiting for this. This is my favorite part of Beyonce, because I can identify with being so driven that you become obsessed, but you don’t give up until you accomplish what you want. She’s so successful, but she’s so normal too. She still gets so worried and excited about her work like a person starting out. She realizes how fortunate she is. Her videos like this ALWAYS remind me of what I’m striving towards and to not stop until I reach it.

    And I always laugh at “Skeleton Crew.”

    she makes me so emotional, she inspires me so much its more than the music and videos, shes fearless, she just loves what she does and is happy she gets the share that with her daughter, husband, family and friends, I love her so much!
