Beyoncé will direct and star in a documentary about her life, set to premiere on HBO February 16, 2013. The news came by way of HBO president Michael Lombardo, as well as Bey herself, on Monday, following last month’s announcement that she’ll be performing on the Super Bowl halftime show. Between these two gigs and that photo of her in the studio with Miguel, are we just to assume she’ll have new music by New Year’s Day? It certainly wouldn’t be a bad thing.
According to HBO, the film is “a fusion of video that provides raw, unprecedented access to the private entertainment icon,” which we hope means a detailed Blue Ivy growth chart. This summer reports surfaced that Beyoncé would soon be adding documentarian to her resume, after she served as director and executive producer of last year’s Live at Roseland concert DVD, so the latest news isn’t a huge surprise. But with television schedules getting more and more crowded by the day, we appreciate the advance notice and its help in crafting our upcoming DVR strategy.
