Beyoncé is days away from kicking off one busy February. She’ll take the stage (and sing live) this Sunday during the Super Bowl halftime show , and just two weeks later, she’ll get candid in her HBO documentary , “Life Is But A Dream.”
The network will air the documentary, which Beyoncé helped direct, on February 16. During a press conference held Thursday (at which she also performed the National Anthem live), she opened up about the ups and the downs in the special.
“Editing myself and seeing all the mistakes that I’ve made and still putting in the film and seeing life as if it wasn’t me, and I feel like it’s time, it’s time for people to really get to know me and see a different side,” she explained to the room of reporters about the special. “And I’m really curious and scared and every night now [I go,] ’It’s too late. It’s coming out.’ But I’m happy with it.”
Bites from the special were released Thursday, giving some insight into just how real Bey will get in the special, including opening up about how she channeled the pain from her miscarriage into her music.
And, she hopes that this doc will give her baby, Blue Ivy, a look at what her life has been like. “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,” she said. “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.”
With a gap between the Super Bowl and the HBO special, some were wondering if Beyoncé will take the stage at the Grammy Awards on February 10. But, she didn’t think that was in the cards. “Well, who said I was performing at the Grammys?” she laughed. “No, I don’t know if I have that much going on. I don’t know if I’m performing at the Grammys.”
She did, however, tease that she will have more announcements post-Super Bowl, including tour plans. Before then, she’s expected to play something new off her 2013 album release during the show and rumor has it she’ll also be joined by her pals in Destiny’s Child during the high-profile gig.
