Lots of y’all are pretty jaded when it comes to Beyonce and her Perfect Life…and I tend to agree to an extent. But we’re all here for one thing and one thing ONLY. Blue Ivy’s FACE, which has never been seen until it’s time to pimp out the HBO “documentary” (eyeroll) Life Is But A Dream airing tomorrow night. If you don’t know what I’m referring to, this is how HBO is promoting the special:
Multiple Grammy®-winner, entrepreneur and actress Beyoncé will be the focus of an intimate feature-length HBO documentary film debuting Feb. 16, 2013, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. Directed by the superstar, the film is a fusion of video that provides raw, unprecedented access to the private entertainment icon and high-voltage performances.
“Everybody knows Beyoncé’s music, but few know Beyoncé the person,” said Lombardo. “Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the
“Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman.”
“HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity,” said Beyoncé. “Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming. This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home.”
The film is a multi-faceted portrait of the 16-time Grammy Award-winning singer, businesswoman, songwriter, actress, entrepreneur, wife and mother, showing off the extraordinary gifts that have made her a global phenomenon, and stripping away the veneer of stardom. It includes extensive first-person footage, some of it shot by Beyoncé on her laptop, in which she reflects on the realities of celebrity, the refuge she finds onstage and the transcendent joy of becoming a mother last year.
The film sheds light on her childhood in Houston, with home movies revealing the close bond she built with her family and charts the challenges Beyoncé felt when she decided to manage her career and build her own company, Parkwood Entertainment. The film also captures the intense physical and emotional demands she goes through in the studio, preparing for live performances, running a business and her family life including her return to the spotlight after the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, in January 2012.
I’m already grinding my teeth over the pretentiousness of it all. I don’t know if I’ll even watch it, because Lord knows, I’ll yell at the TV too much already. (You should’ve heard me last night during that “certain part” on Scandal last night. “Daaaaayuuummmmm!” was probably heard all the way across town.) Oh–you’re waiting to see The
Golden Platinum Child, aren’t you?
I’m pretty sure Beyonce had NOTHING to due with this child and she’s 100% Sean Carter’s baby. I don’t know how he did it, but it goes to show what Money + The Illuminati can do. Just kidding. (Not really.) Wait, yeah I am. Or not.
A show of hands if you’re gonna watch this hot mess?
