All About Beyoncé - THE Documentary and THE Interview

Beyoncé has remained firmly in the news of late. The birth of her and Jay-Z’s child, Blue Ivy; the lip synching scandal at President Obama’s inauguration; THAT Super Bowl performance and the return of Destiny’s Child have all kept the 31-year-old at in the headlines for one reason or another.

There are whispers, though, that her new HBO doc, Life Is But A Dream, is no more than a promotional video; a documentary designed to entice those begging for more on her private life, but designed for the indifferent and cynical goal of ticket sales for her upcoming tour, Mrs Carter. We’d suggest that Beyonce is a big enough star to sell tickets without the aid of a documentary, but there are those who argue otherwise.

Entertainment Weekly wrote of Life Is But A Dream, "Why don’t we ever see her — even in bed in the middle of the night — without beautiful, flowing, perfectly styled hair?" calling the film "a delicate mix of the calculated and confessional, designed to let us just far enough into Knowles’ world to keep us interested in her next tour, album, soda allegiance, etc." And that’s just one of a flurry of reviews questioning the motive of the documentary.

Beyonce’s also been speaking to Oprah Winfrey in one of the most anticipated interviews of the year, which aired last night (Feb 16) at the same time as the doc. In it, she revealed that she’s got the bug, and wants more kids. “I definitely want another child," she explained. "After this next tour, maybe I’ll have another baby.” And in a touching section of the interview, B opened up on a previously secret part of her life: her miscarriage. “I felt like there are so many couples that go through that and it was a big part of my story,” said Beyonce on including it in her documentary. “It was one of the hardest things I’ve been through. It was one of the reasons I did not reveal that I was pregnant the second time. You don’t know what’s going to happen. It was hard."
