“I’ve Earned The Right To Be Me”: Beyoncé Talks Honesty In The Fifth Installment of Doc!

January 4, 2014  |  

In what appears to be the final installment of her documentary, Beyoncé talks honesty and reveals it was the key for this album.

These videos have probably been as raw as we’ve ever seen Bey and we love it. Surely we aren’t the only ones because in all of the comments sections for the videos, people want to see the next installation. But in this seemingly final one, Bey talks about how her image and her responsibility had been holding her back from releasing music that was more true to who she is, or was at the time, as a person.

On Why She Felt She Couldn’t Be More Honest In Her Music:

“I started out when I was 9 with the girls of Destiny’s Child and our first album came out when I was 15. I was a child.  But now I’m in my 30s, and those children that grew up listening to me have grown up and I always felt it was my responsibility to be aware of kids and their parents and all these generations. and I feel like it stifled me. I felt like, in a sense, I could not express everything. I’ve done so many things in my life, in my career, that at this point I feel like I’ve earned the right to be me and  to express any and every part of myself.”

Beyoncé goes on to talk about the making of “Rocket.” She explains that it’s a song about singing from the heart, harmonies, adlibs, and arrangements. There’s a clip of her singing in the studio while Justin Timberlake and Timabaland (two of of the three writers – Miguel was the third) are there and Timberlake pretty much loses it. He just repeats, “There’s something wrong with you.”

Bey says she would not have been able to record “Rocket” in the past because she wouldn’t have had as much confidence. But now, she feels she’s let her walls down. She goes on to say about the videos as a whole:

“I feel like I’m having to tap into a lot of my life experiences to pull inspiration. And I fee like I’m opening up a lot in these videos and showing a lot of sides to me that only a few people have ever seen.”

    And the promotion continues.. smh.. And the stans are acting like she’s doing something original and creative. She’s made videos to all her songs before, just not on iTunes. That’s hardly groundbreaking.

    I guess..*shrugs shoulders*

  • Nellz

    In order for her to be “honest with her music” she would need to be the one writing the songs smh.

    I like Beyonce, but you have to like/love those who contributed 😉

  • leowoman

    timbaland, miguel, justin….much props to those fellas as well!

  • yonce=witch

    We don’t need to know about your man skeeting on your gown..that’s t.m.I!!! That doesn’t make you “grown”.. that makes a sell-out.. that’s not classy..that’s trashy.. honesty is the last thing beyodel is giving…all the swagger hacking and stealing she does. .honesty and beyodel should never be placed in the same sentence!!

    Beyonce is at the age where she most certainly have earned the right to express herself as the grown woman she is today. I have really enjoyed this album, along with the videos and for th life of me, I don’t see how she can ever top this. But knowing Beyonce, that mind is already at work.

  • FeelsGood

    My goodness…how much longer will we be forced to hear about this album?! Damn!

    • BabyBlue

      You’re not forced. You clicked these stories.

      • FeelsGood

        Should have known you would be the one to go in. Smh.

        • BabyBlue

          Glad you know. Goodbye

      • leowoman

        lol true

  • Just saying!!

    I commend her for embracing who she is. I, like everyone else, was very tired of the act and I think she could see that. I wish they would’ve shown us why they were wow’ing in the studio. I’m sure it wasn’t just from that little snippet she sang. I love the visuals on the album but as far as the music itself i haven’t been as moved as a lot of other people and that makes me feel like something is wrong with me lol! Then again, it could also be that people like the music because of the cool videos, because that too is a great strategy used by many entertainers, including Beyonce, to get people to like their songs. Anyway, how many of these snippets are there? I know they’re used to keep up the hype of the album…but knowing that kind of annoys me hahaha

    • Just saying!!

      And although I appreciate how candid she is in this album, I must admit my favorite of hers is her first solo album. I listened to that often and enjoyed most of the songs on there, as opposed to this one where I only like a few. But who cares, the way she released it was awesome!

  • Monique Jackson

    I this is her best album and you can really fell her in this music

  • BabyBlue

    Well, it will take me a while to embrace this side of her. My instinct was that she wants to be relevant. But, I guess it’s her evolution. It isn’t bad. It should be applauded. I enjoy the album. I sometimes wish people would take the album for what it is instead of over analyzing on what it should be.

    • Angela

      She has always been relevant.
