Famous as she is, Beyoncé has managed to stay pretty quiet about her personal life but has now chosen to share some of it via this new documentary – “Life Is But a Dream.”
It airs at 9 tonight (Feb. 16), and her fans, including Oprah Winfrey, can’t rave enough.
In fact, Oprah Winfrey provides a lead in to Beyonce’s HBO special with an interview on her “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” which airs at 8 tonight (Feb. 16) on her OWN Network.
In an interview with “Extra” TV, Oprah told Kevin Frazier:
“People are going to be amazed … People are going to feel a connection to her that they didn’t feel before because she shows us how real she is.”
In the interview with Oprah, other topics such as her relationship with her father, and the newly revealed miscarriage she had before getting pregnant with baby Blue Ivy, are explored.
Oprah opened the interview by asking Beyoncé if she caused the power outage at the Super Bowl.
B acknowledged that she can’t remember too much about the performance because she was on auto pilot, but she does remember connecting with her fans while singing “Halo.” She and her family and friends went out for a big celebratory dinner after the show, and she even shared a drink with her mom, who doesn’t drink, writes Chicago Now.
The 31-year-old singer has achieved more that any average woman of her age. Beyonce confessed that she counts daughter Blue Ivy as her biggest success and battled to hold back tears as she opened up to Oprah.
America’s sweetest pop star mostly rhapsodized about motherhood in a lovefest interview with Oprah Winfrey.
“My daughter introduced me to myself,” said Beyoncé, whose self-produced documentary “Life Is But a Dream” premiered Saturday evening on HBO. “Motherhood made everything make sense.”
She described Blue Ivy as “hilarious and she is fire,” and considers her to be her best friend. That may not be the best bit of motherly advice–most moms will tell you to be a mother first and don’t try to be your child’s friend– it is an indicator of imperfection.
Beyoncé mentioned several times how close she is with her mom and how she hopes she has as close a relationship with her own daughter.
She told the media mogul about giving birth to her one-year-old: “It’s what I’m most proud of and it just made everything make sense to me. I couldn’t imagine my life if I did not have my daughter.”
She said that she has been working on documenting her life for years, but she didn’t put it out because her story did not feel complete (although she did not know why) until she became a mother and now she has her story to tell.
In her documentary, the star talks about having a miscarriage with her first pregnancy before Blue Ivy, reports the Daily Mail.
With her rapper spouse enjoying fatherhood so much, Beyonce is planning on adding to her brood.
She said about her partner, whose real name is Sean Carter: ‘He’s a different human being… he’s a great father I’m so lucky.
“I definitely want another child but it was also important for me to do what I love and I love to perform. I love to make music so I wanted to have my daughter. Maybe after the next tour I’ll have another baby.”
One thing is certain, despite how “boring” and “robotic” we think Bey can be, she loves her some Jay-Z!
“I would not be the person I am if it wasn’t for that man.”
And when Oprah asked her if they’ve helped elevate each other, like couples should, she proudly responded “Yes.”
Oprah closed the interview with a Maya Angelou quote and prompted a hug from Beyoncé.
