Last night, Beyonce’s highly anticipated documentary, “Life Is But A Dream”, made it’s debut on HBO and it was definitely packed with fulfilling moments for those fans who have always wondered what life is like for Beyonce. Although from the outside looking in, her life looks perfect as she’s successfully been able to balance her career, motherhood, friendship and being a wife, the documentary proved that her world is full of challenges. Throughout the 90 minutes, we saw stressful moments and chaos as Beyonce tried to put together her Billboard Awards performance all while managing herself. Her team didn’t exactly know what they were doing and when things seemed to get too stressful, Beyonce would make comments like, “Sometimes I wonder if I should just retire…..I can’t do it by myself.”
It was during these times that you realized how important it is for an entertainer to have a solid support system. Beyonce has her mother (who she pegged as a therapist) and her husband, who Beyonce says taught her how to be a woman and how to handle her business.
Beyonce also made a very interesting but true statement on how she views music today:
People don’t make albums anymore. They just try to sell a bunch of quick singles. Artists put out an album, then they put out a new one. People don’t even listen to a body of work anymore. When I first started out, there was no internet, people taking pictures of you and putting your personal life or exploiting your personal life as entertainment. I think people are so brainwashed. You get up in the morning, you click on the computer and you see all these pictures and all you think of is the picture and the image that you see all day, every day. You don’t see the human form. When Nina Simone put out music, you loved her voice. That’s what she wanted you to love. That was her instrument. You didn’t get brainwashed by her day-to-day life, and what her child was wearing and who she was dating, all of these things that is not your business. It shouldn’t influence the way you listen to the voice and the art, but it does.
