Before you all get mad at me, let me point out that “Bey season” has officially begun and there will likely be a rise in talks about Beyonce. Just bare with us, okay? This is entertainment news and Bey is…an entertainer. Still mad at me? Well, I tried. Let’s move on!
We’re starting to hear more and more about Beyonce’s documentary Life Is But A Dream which will premiere in February on HBO. USA Today was able to get an advanced screening and apparently, Bey decided to be extremely candid when speaking about pregnancy. By now, most of us have seen the trailer for the doc and know that we get a quick glimpse of her belly in the very early stages of her pregnancy with now one year old Blue Ivy.
But it goes deeper than that. She speaks on her miscarriage and how one week there was a heartbeat and the next week, she heard nothing. If you recall, we first learned about the Carters’ miscarriage on Jay-Z’s song dedicated to Blue, “Glory.” Beyonce says the studio became an outlet for her to deal with the loss.
Oh and about that rumor that she didn’t actually have a baby? Here’s what Bey had to say:
“There’s a stupid rumor. The most ridiculous rumor I think I’ve ever had about me. It’s crazy. To think I would be that vain – I respect mothers and women so much and to be able to experience bringing a child into this world, if you’re lucky and fortunate enough to experience that, I would never, ever take that for granted. It’s the most powerful thing you can do. Especially after losing a child, the pain and trauma from that just makes it mean so much more to get an opportunity to bring life into the world. It seems like people should have boundaries.”
I’m sure this does nothing for those of you who believe she didn’t carry Blue but she’s finally addressed it directly.
It’ll be interesting to see what else she has to say or share because as we learned in the GQ interview, she is filmed 16 hours a day. As much as people may love her, the struggle in her fame is that people still don’t feel like they know her and I’m not exactly sure the filming schedule will make her seem more believable. Still, there’s got to be something in all that footage that makes her feel more relatable, right?
Life Is But A Dream premieres on HBO on February 16th at 9pm.
