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.”

Knowing the truth can help you get back on the path to healing.
An affair could happen to anyone, from the local politician who gets caught with his pants down to the next-door neighbor who sleeps with her kid’s karate teacher. When people find out about infidelity, they often make all kinds of assumptions about why people are having affairs. Even if someone cheated in your life, you may have thought you understood what affairs are all about.
We live in a hush-hush culture when it comes to infidelity and it’s not so easy to sort fact from fiction, and many of the common beliefs about affairs are wrong. Here are the 10 most common myths and the truth behind the scenes:
1. Most people who cheat are looking for an affair when it happens. In fact, the majority of time, an affair happens to people who aren’t looking for it. This is particularly true in cases in which a partner had had only cheated with one person. Affairs often begin as friendships, which are followed by intimacy, which can then shift into a full-blown tryst.
2. Most people drift from their spouses for someone younger or more attractive. Think of the Arnold Schwarzenegger affair with his housekeeper. While in some cases, the chronically philandering corporate CEO might seek out younger sex mates, typically paramours are no younger, richer or more attractive than spouses.
