Is there such thing as Beyonce overload? Maybe, but she’s still continuing to reign supreme this year and last night she looked gorgeous as she attended the premiere of her HBO documentary “Life is but a Dream” at New York’s Zeigfeld Theatre.
Queen B looked stunning on the red carpet wearing a revealing, beaded gown and she was surrounded by her friends and family. Of course hubby Jay-Z was in attendance, along with sister Solange and mother Tina. Her friends The-Dream, Angela Bassett, Luke James, ?uestlove, Chris Rock, Russell Simmons, Victor Cruz, and more were also there to show their support.
Oprah was also in attendance doing what she does best. She sat down with Beyonce before the screening to interview the Grammy Award-winning singer. It was revealed that the title of her documentary was actually inspired by Blue Ivy’s favorite nursery rhyme “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.”
“What I thought [of the documentary] was, ’This is so empowering, so great!’ There’s a moment where [Beyoncé] said she did this because she wanted to learn how to trust herself and how to be more honest and how to grow — well that’s what everybody’s trying to do,” Oprah told MTV News.”It’s a definitely a nod to how great the documentary is given that even Oprah felt empowered watching this 90-minute look into the inner workings of Beyonce’s life.”
After the screening the A-list crowd headed to an after party where Solange DJ’ed and her and Bey rocked out together. Beyonce’s interview with Oprah will be aired on OWN on Saturday February 16 at 8pm followed by the premiere of her documentary “Life is but a Dream” at 9pm on HBO.
