Not to be outshone by today’s Golden Globes madness, Beyoncé has just released the first full-length trailer for her forthcoming self-directed HBO documentary Life Is But A Dream, which airs Saturday, February 16 at 9/8 c. In the clip, Beyoncé reveals behind-the-scenes footage of her life over the past year—including shooting her album cover in Paris around the time she conceived daughter Blue Ivy Carter—with a trademark dramatic voiceover: “I felt like I had been so commercially successful,” she says. “It just wasn’t enough. So I set a goal. And my goal was independence.” Perhaps she is referring to her 2011 split from father Matthew Knowles, her longtime manager? Guess we’ll all have to tune in on February 16 to find out! Watch the trailer above!
