Beyonce: New HBO Documentary Trailer (VIDEO)
The singer gives fans a glimpse of Blue Ivy’s ultrasound in “Life Is But a Dream.”
Beyonce Knowles gets candid and emotional in the new trailer for her upcoming HBO documentary, set to air in February.
On Saturday, the network released a preview of the special, titled Life is But a Dream. Directed by the 31-year-old singer herself, documentary includes personal footage from multiple rehearsal spaces, the recording studio, Bey’s bed and her adventures around the world.
Viewers will also get an intimate look at an ultrasound of baby Blue Ivy Carter, who just celebrated her first birthday last week.
“I always battle with how much do I reveal about myself. How do I stay current? How do I stay soulful? I felt like I had been so commercial success, it wasn’t enough,” Beyonce says in a voiceover in the trailer.
“You can’t express yourself. You can’t grow. It is the battle of my life. So I set a goal. And my goal was: independence.”
In the trailer, Beyonce can also be seen being frustrated with trying to hide her baby bump, possibly during a time just prior to her big announcement at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards.
The “Countdown” singer is gearing up for a busy next several weeks, starting with President Barack Obama’s inauguration in Washington, D.C., followed by her highly anticipated Destiny's Child reunion at the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show on Feb. 3, before celebrating the premiere of Life is But a Dream on Feb. 16.
