Beyonce bares all about career and private life in new documentary

London, Feb. 18 (ANI): Beyonce's new tell-all documentary that reveals the most intimate details of her life will have her fans screaming in delight.

The HBO film, called 'Life Is But A Dream,' offers a kaleidoscopic view of the 31-year-old singer's life, composed of home movies from the singer's childhood, webcam confessionals, concert footage, behind-the-scenes snippets, and interview segments from a sit-down interview.

The 90-minute movie, that aired on Saturday night, includes footage of Beyonce and her one-year-old daughter Blue Ivy, touching moments of her and her hip hop artist husband Jay-Z, and a behind-the-scenes look at the preparations for her performances at various music awards, the Daily Mail reported.

The movie, produced and starring Beyonce, is peppered with emotion throughout, most notably when the singer opens up about her miscarriage prior to falling pregnant with Blue Ivy.

In the documentary, Beyonce touched on the topic briefly, saying that it was was the saddest thing that she has ever been through.

But Beyonce found joy again when she fell pregnant with Blue Ivy and part of the movie shows footage of a sonogram, the diva's growing bump and grainy video of the singer posing nude as she neared her due date.

The film even shows Beyonce in the hospital room as she prepares to give birth.

The singer and her husband look giddy with excitement as her mother Tina Knowles sets her daughter's hair in curlers.

Blue Ivy makes frequent appearances throughout the film as her famous mother holds her close and shows her off to the camera.

Although Jay-Z is hardly heard from in the film, there are moments that clearly depict the couple's love for each other.

At one point Beyonce is seen toasting him for his 37th birthday in 2006 at a dinner with his closest friends, telling him, "You've taught me so many things."

In the most touching moment, the couple coo to each other as they sing along to Coldplay hit 'Yellow' at a bar, written by their close friend Chris Martin.

The pair are also seen on a vaction together, enjoying a rare quiet interlude on a boat in an exotic locale.

The movie offered a candid inside look inside Beyonce's childhood in Texas, including home footage of her as a little girl playing with bees.

Beyonce's also shown singing and giggling with her younger sister Solange and Destiny's Child group mate Kelly Rowland.

In the film, the singer also opens up about her female friendships, and shows a slight feminist bent. (ANI)
