Report: Beyonce to direct doc of her life

Beyonce has given us glimpses into her personal life in the past, but the superstar singer is reportedly ready to craft a documentary-length feature about her on-and-off-stage world.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the 30-year-old and her representation have been taking a project about her life and chart-topping career to different studios as of late, revealing about 20 minutes of the film's footage.

The paper cites a source with knowledge of the project who says that the documentary is a blend of Beyonce's concerts and more personal interviews, as it combines her "music and personal study."

The mom of one would star, direct in and produce the project, which isn't exactly new territory for the Grammy winner. As "20/20" noted last year, Beyonce also served as director and producer of her concert DVD, "Live at Roseland: Elements of '4,'" which, as this new project reportedly will, included her intimate shows at New York's Roseland Ballroom with past footage from her private life.

"I learned how to edit ... I'm an editor as well," Beyonce told Katie Couric at the time. "It is a lot of work, especially when I'm trying to tell stories that are from so many different eras, moments of my life."

      I would bet anyone would look good if they had professional makeup artist's doing their face. Without makeup, you'd probably never look twice at her. I don't see the beauty, like you do. I think she looks kind of geeky. Just my opinion, though.

  11. ah...

    I've got to admit, I'm really sick of this girl. I think the media makes way too much of her & the hubby. The media acts like they are some kind of royalty. I say, stop the madness, and give us a break!

    What is with all of the negative comments? If you have forgotten, her journey to fame was a struggle, they lost their riches to help her get to where she is and her journey shows that if you sacrifice some things even greater things can come from them. I'm sorry but you people need to grow up, i am not a rihanna fan and i won't go around commenting on rihanna posts just to say i wish her dead, i would never do something like that and you shouldn't either...

    Her story is not a rags to riches story. Her father made a lot of money and she grew up in a huge house. She has had good luck at every turn in her life. Why make a movie about that? What will she call it? "I've always been rich and I always will be and in your face'!
