Beyonce to Drop ‘Intimate’ HBO Documentary in February
Beyonce has been protective of her privacy since the birth of her daughter Blue Ivy in January, but she’s about to invite fans into her home with the release of an intimate documentary premiering February 16, 2013 on HBO.
The still-untitled film will include home movies from Beyonce’s childhood in Houston, interviews in which she discusses celebrity and motherhood, and behind-the-scenes glimpses from the recording studio and her everyday family life. Some of the footage was even shot by Bey on her laptop.
In a statement, Beyonce said, “HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity. 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.”
Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming, added, “Everybody knows Beyonce’s music, but few know Beyonce the person. Along with electrifying footage of Beyonce onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman.”
It looks as though 2013 might be shaping up to be a big comeback year for Beyonce. The documentary will air two weeks after she performs at the Super Bowl halftime show, and she may also have a new album in the works.
