If you missed Saturday night’s HBO documentary, ‘Life Is But A Dream’, about super star Beyonce Knowles, shame on you. After a revealing sit down with Oprah on ‘Next chapter’, the singer has managed to get people to fall in love with her all over again. While she’s adored for the fierce entertainer she is she is even more respected following her documentary. The singer showed so much depth and humility while allowing the cameras to come into the most personal part of her life as a wife, mother and every day human being. Could it be, Beyonce is just like you and me at the end of the day?
We see Beyonce document her journey as a performer, she speaks on the painful break up with her dad as her manager, her pregnancy and even a sweet moment between her and husband Jay Z as they sing to each other during a romantic dinner. She talks being blessed and reveal thirteen months old Blue Ivy to the world for the first time. During this time, she also shares an intimate moment with her daughter as she cradles her and spend quality time with family.
Check out her interview and video below.
Beyonce recently sat down with Oprah on ‘Next Chapter’ to talk about the next phase in her life, as a wife, mother and business woman. The singer first discusses her overwhelming Super Bowl performance and her ‘Life Is But A Dream’ documentary, which aired last night as well. Check out her noteworthy quotes and the full interview below.
On sharing her miscarriage with the world
There’s so many couples that go through that and it’s one of the hardest things I’ve been through. It’s one of the reasons I didn’t tell people I was pregnant the second time around. You just don’t know.
On Jay-Z as a dad
Incredible. He’s a different human being. And it’s really beautiful to see a young man, such a great father. I’m so lucky.
Beyonce will sit down with Oprah to reveal a lot more about who she is behind the cameras. It seems, Bey’s been revealing a lot lately, doesn’t it? On Saturday’s episode of ‘Next Chapter’ the new mom will talk about her daughter Blue Ivy, her previous miscarriage and being married to Hip Hop mogul Jay Z. The singer will also discuss, for the first time, the current state of her relationship with her father. She announced he would no longer manage her career back in 2011. She recently revealed firing her father has ‘tarnished her soul’ in her feature story with Vogue magazine.
And the ladies seemed to have fun while catching up. “Did we have fun or what? #nextchapter sat 8pm,” tweeted Oprah along with the above photo. The episode airs Saturday at 8pm on OWN.
In more Beyonce news, the singer’s documentary “Life Is But A Dream” will also air this Saturday on HBO. In honor of the film debut she would like for all of you to share her dreams with her. _______READMORE
On Tuesday night Beyonce held her ‘Life Is But A Dream’ HBO documentary premiere at the Ziegfield theatre in New York City. Stars flocked to the event including Oprah herself. She was also joined by her husband, Jay Z, her sister Solange and mother Tina Knowles.
In the 90 minute documentary, directed and co-produced by Knowles, we get to see the side of the star she’s gone to great lengths to hide. The “real” Beyonce perhaps? But many want to know, why now?
“I felt that after 16 years of being a public singer, people didn’t know who I was,” she admitted. She then add, “I will always keep certain things to myself because it’s only natural.”
Beyonce certainly does rule the world. Queen B appears on the cover of, the fashion bible that is, Vogue magazine and look stunning. Although Bey’s been more open about her pregnancy with daughter Blue Ivy, she opens up a bit more with the magazine as she discuss her labor and finally becoming a mom.
“I felt very maternal around eight months,” she remembers. “And I thought I couldn’t become any more until I saw the baby. . . . But it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain. . . . We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication.”
On giving birth, “My family and my closest people were there when I gave birth,” she says. “Everything that scared me just was not present in that room. So for me to really let go and really appreciate every contraction . . . it was the best day of my life.”
On her daughter she adds, “She’s my road dog,” Beyoncé says. “She’s my homey, my best friend.”
Beyonce surprised everyone when she wore a black and white pants suit to this year’s Grammy awards.
Although it’s not the sexy long flowing gown we though Bey would wear the fitted pants suit works for the singer.
Earlier today Beyonce posted a few pics of herself and her “clique” on her Tumblr page. Using the hashtags #mylife #mygirls #DC3, Beyonce also posted a pic of the girls and her mother, Tina Knowles, Kelly and Michelle and cousin Angela Beyince. While Beyonce and the girls appear to be in good spirits and happy, her stans are going crazy. Tickets for “The Mrs. Carter Show” went on pre-sale today for several states and a majority are sold out. A few complaints about the website not being available at 10am when the tickets went on sale have fans everywhere a little nervous. Including me .
Beef, what beef! Former When Destiny’s Child members LaTavia Roberson and LaToya Luckett have moved on from their rift with singers Beyonce and Kelly Rowland. So much so, the two ladies praised their Super Bowl performance.
Latavia (photoed above) recently caught up with Celebuzz and gave her opinion on Beyonce and her Destiny’s Child reunion with Rowland and Michelle Williams.
“Obviously, seeing Beyonce perform was the highlight for me,” the 31-year-old told Celebuzz. “I got a real surprise when both Kelly] and Michelle both popped-up on the stage like that.”
“I thought they all looked great and did a good job with their dance moves, she added. “Beyonce was especially amazing. She looked fabulous and her voice was really strong. During the performance somebody texted me to say they could not hear Kelly and Michelle sing. It was so noisy in the house where we watched the performance that I did not really notice anything wrong. But who knows? They probably had some technical problems.”
It just isn’t enough to be one of the most beautiful and successful women in the world, with millions of adoring fans, twelve number one hits (or is it thirteen now?), travel around the world and be stinking rich! Not for Rihanna at least. Rih revealed recently who she’d change places with if she had the chance. When a fan asked her on Instagram, “Rihanna, If you could be someone else for one day… Who would you choose to be?”
Rihanna simply replied back _______READMORE
Stans get ready! Last night Beyonce announced, through a video released, that she will be going on a world tour. “The Mrs. Carter Show” will begin April 15th in Europe and end affectionately August 3rd in Brooklyn, NY. Last night several celebs gave Beyonce her props on her Superbowl halftime performance. Taking to Twitter,
Oprah tweeted: “BEYONCE!!!”
Solange: “Beyonce Bowl,” “No. One. Better.”, and “By the way…Black girls ROCK, and I couldn’t be more proud to be one tonight!!!”
Jay Z: “Lights out!!! Any questions??”
As projected, Mrs. Beyonce Carter definitely shut it down during the 2013 47th Super Bowl halftime show. Literally, the Super Bowl was put on hold because of a power outage shortly following the halftime show. Coming out in a super sexy leather and lace outfit, Beyonce showed off her singing and dancing skills. I hope you guys didn’t really think she had lost it. Bey proves that she is still the queen when it comes to performing. The songs that she performed included “Crazy in Love,” “End of Time,” and “Baby Boy.”
Following her solo performance, Beyonce then brought out her former Destiny’s Child band mates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams _______READMORE
Unless you’ll be tuning in to the half-time show to watch Beyonce grace the stage, we get how the Superbowl madness may drive you crazy! But you’ve been invited to a Superbowl party and would rather go than stay home alone. Here are 5 Superbowl survival tips that may turn your frown around.
1) Don’t overdress: I know it’s tempting to wear your cutest outfit and tallest heels to the party because for once you are guaranteed that men will outnumber women. Be that as it may, wearing six inch heels to the sports bar or house party will only make you look awkward and out of place. Men are attracted to women that know there is a time and place for the glam and a time and place to be casual – cute. Keep it simple and wear flats!
2) No questions during a play: Yes, you want to show that you might be interested in the game (even if you aren’t), but recognize that no one wants to answer your questions about “who is that?” or “what are they doing now” when a play is about to start. Wait until commercials! When everyone else is staring intently at the screen that’s your cue to do the same.
