While I was initially pretty “meh” about this documentary, I can’t lie, seeing Beyoncé showing off her bare belly with a growing child in it got my eyes a little wide and both my curiosity and attention (I stole that line from the Django Unchained trailer *smiles*). “Whaaaaaaaaat!? Now this should be interesting for real,” I said. Knowles dropped an almost 30-second teaser of her upcoming HBO documentary, which she directed and produced herself. In the teaser, the singer flashes a wealth of images that describe her life on camera, and talks about the battle she says she has gone through in her career when it comes to exposing her family and her love life to her fans: “I always battle with, how much do I reveal about myself?” We’ll also get to see more home videos of a young Beyoncé, as well as video of the singer rehearsing, on stage, moving about in the world as pan–make that, fandemonium ensues and more. But as I hinted to earlier, the most interesting part of this teaser is the glimpse we will get to see of Beyoncé during the early days of her pregnancy, and the baby bump as it grows and grows. I’m just trying to make sure we get to see a full shot of her and her belly, you know, so we know that it’s her. Kidding! But seriously, I’m excited to hear and see what she had to say about going through the ups and downs of pregnancy. I’m also wondering if she’ll respond to the many twisted theories and claims that her pregnancy wasn’t real. Either way, I’ll definitely be tuned in. The doc will premiere on February 16 and is sure to have people (especially the haters) talking. Check out the teaser below and let us know what you think. Should be good!
