Beyoncé admitted that she’s a little scared about sharing her life in her upcoming HBO documentary.
From her documentary to Super Bowl XLVII and her reunion with Destiny’s Child, Beyonce has been making a lot of news in 2013 so far.
But lately the biggest thing she’s had to contend with is the fall out from her performance at the Inauguration. Mere hours after wrapping up the ceremony, Bey was accused of lip-synching the National Anthem. Though it’s been proven that she was singing over a pre-recorded track, people still question she was actually singing live.
Beyoncé silenced her detractors with a patriotic show of her undeniable talent to kick off Super Bowl weekend at press conference. "I am a perfectionist. And one thing about me, I practice until my feet bleed," said Bey, who added that she did not have time to rehearse with the orchestra performing at the Inauguration. "It was a live tv show and a very, very important, emotional show for me. One of my proudest moments."
Shifting the focus from herself, Bey reminded reporters that the occasion was not about her singing the National Anthem. She was there to honor President Barack Obama as he was sworn in for his second term.
"It was about the President and the Inauguration. And I wanted to make him and my country proud," said Bey. "I decided to sing along to a pre-recorded track, which is very common in the music industry. And I’m very proud of my performance."
To lay any questions about her performance to rest, the diva asked reporters to rise so that she could sing the song for them live acapella.
Don’t expect any similar controversy following Super Bowl XLVII because will be performing without any vocal support. "I will absolutely be singing live. I am well rehearsed. And this is what I was born to do," Beyoncé explained before brushing off a question about whether or not her fellow members from Destiny’s Child will be making an appearance during her set. "I can’t really give you any details. I’m sorry."
From there, Beyoncé went on to answer press questions about her documentary Life Is But A Dream, which airs February 16 on HBO. Bey admitted that she’s got some butterflies in her stomach about airing out the details of her life for the world to see, but she doesn’t plan on yanking the film before it makes it on air.
"I am so nervous about putting that out. It was really interesting directing and editing mysef and seeing all the mistakes I’ve made. But still putting it in the film," Beyoncé explained, adding that despite her nerves she wants to let everyone in on who she is as a person. "I feel like it’s time for people to really get to know me. And to see a different side. I’m really curious and scared…but now it’s too late. I’m happy with it.
Baddie Bey will also be sharing a lot more about her daughter Blue Ivy in the documentary, which included a sonogram of the baby. In the diva’s mind, there was no way that she could make a film about her life and barely show Blue.
"I feel like my daughter has changed my life and has given me so much purpose. I feel like this movie, it’s very necessary," said Beyoncé. "I think it shows a human side. We’re all human and I feel like at some point my job is to protect her and I’m happy that I could tell my story on my terms."
Being away from Blue is hard Beyoncé, who added that she’s hopping right on a plane shortly after the stage goes black. "I’m going to be with my daughter. I miss her so much. I keep telling her, ‘I’ll be right back at 9p on Sunday!’" Bey shared.
But before Beyoncé can get back to her baby, she’s got to put in some serious work at the Super Dome. While the half time show is always a big deal at the Super Bowl, the singer broke down why it’s such high intensity set.
"There’s 7.5 mins for the volunteers to put the stage together. I met the volunteers and they’re so incredible," Beyoncé said. "We’re all working together and I can’t give too much away. But every second matters and we’re WORKING. I had to condense my career into 12 minutes.
