Get a new look at Beyonce's doc, 'Life Is But A Dream'

Beyonce and Justin Timberlake could be the queen and king of promotional maneuvers, as both artists have cleverly dropped breadcrumbs to remind fans of forthcoming projects.

While Timberlake is pointing toward a new album, Beyonce is reminding us about her HBO documentary, which will air February 16 on HBO.

In a new trailer, Beyonce shows her human side, which we don't often get to see.


"I always battle with how much do I reveal about myself," she says. "People see celebrities, and they have money and fame, but I'm a human being. I cry, and I get scared, and I get nervous, just like everyone else."

One example is when she learned she was pregnant with her daughter, Blue Ivy, whom she welcomed with husband Jay-Z in January 2012. The documentary includes a look at Blue when she was still just a barely-there baby bump, and follows Bey as she tries to conceal her pregnancy while still maintaining her powerful performances.

The feature-length project, titled "Life Is But A Dream," will also highlight footage from the entertainer's childhood as Beyonce recounts her rise to superstardom.

"Life Is But A Dream," which was directed by Beyonce, is just one of many projects the 31-year-old mom has scheduled for this year.

On top of performing during the Super Bowl Halftime show on February 3, as well as at President Obama's inauguration January 21, she's also releasing a new single with her former group, Destiny's Child, and working on her upcoming fifth album.

    "--–I have money and fame but I'm a human being. I cry and get scared and nervous like everyone else.---" Come on Beyonce, get creative like an artist instead of singing the same old same old as sung, written and/or spoken by all celebrities thru time....... This is a tell "some BUT NOT ALL things" week with Lance Armstrong and yourself. DON'T hide that Bump Bey post Blue to show you carried to be true.

    Happy to hear she's making money, but they can still screw off from taking an entire hospital floor. She is human, but she sure as hell still has to be queen in the process. Take this article with a grain of salt because she is still getting into that Bentley & only has to sign her name on a contract for millions from a perfume company. Put her on survivor man. I'd get HBO to watch that!

      First off, sir. What's wrong with making money? Are you so jealous and bitter that you don't that you automatically hate people that do? Survivor isn't even on HBO JERK!

      Uumm maybe it's the millions of people that purchase her music and sell out her shows. I have a sneaking suspension that they may have influenced her.

    She is beautiful, powerful, a role-model and the very vision of the American Dream. I hope to be just like her one day!

      Role model???? You want to be half-naked on a stage writhing around making satanic videos? Stop drinking the kool-aid. She is not a role model. She is a puppet of the devil that sold her soul to him. Wake up and do research. Emulate someone worthwhile, not someone that their god is money and will do anything to get it.
