A teaser trailer has been released for Beyonce’s HBO documentary
The 25 second trailer opens with Beyonce saying “I always battle with how much I should reveal of myself. If I’m scared. Be scared. Allow it. Release it.”
There are shots of a small baby bump, an embrace with Jay Z, concert footage and video clips.
Michael Lombardo, HBO president of programming, said in a statement about the documentary, “Everybody knows Beyoncé’s music, but few know Beyoncé the person. Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman.”
The reason Beyonce chose HBO to air her documentary, according to huffingtonpost.com is because “HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity,” said Beyonce in a statement. “Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming. This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home.”
Beyonce is usually a very private person, so no doubt this small insight into her world, which includes footage shot on her mobile phone will be a ratings hit for HBO! Apparently this will be “Raw. Real. Revealed.”
The documentary airs on HBO on 16 February 2013.
