You don’t know me very well, so I am going to spare you the details of my Beyoncé obsession. Lets just say that I have all of her CDs (yes CDs) loaded in my car, and that for a brief moment in college I considered coming up with my own alter-ego, just like Sasha Fierce. So, when Deadline reported that my idol was directing her own documentary, I obviously got very excited.
Beyoncé’s untitled feature-length documentary will air on HBO on February 16, 2013 and will showcase the singer-actress’ life both onstage and off. HBO Programming president Michael Lombardo said, “Everybody know’s Beyoncé’s music, but few know Beyoncé the person. Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, and unforgettable woman.” Beyoncé will also exec produce the film.
So we get to see Sasha Fierce rock it out onstage and the real Beyoncé take care of business and her daughter Blue Ivy? I’m in. I cannot wait for this intimate look into the star’s real life.
