Beyonce hopes her new documentary will inspire her daughter.
The superstar decided to create her new tell-all HBO film Life is But a Dream to give her 13-month-old daughter Blue Ivy Carter - whom she has with husband Jay-Z - a source of strength and inspiration in the future and make her proud to see where she came from.
Speaking at the film's New York City premiere last night, she said, "I hope that she will see all of the beautiful times [and] all the tough times that led up to her being here. I'm hoping that... it can comfort her and inspire her in her life when she needs it."
While the 31-year-old singer believes it's important for every woman to retain an air of mystique, she felt the time was right to share her story with the world and celebrate the new stage in her life: "Mystique is very important... It doesn't matter if you're a celebrity - just as a woman - I think it's important. But, at the same time, I felt like it was time for me to share my story because I've been through so much and I have so much to celebrate, so much to share."
Beyonce Knowles is to star in a documentary about her life and career.
The "Crazy In Love" singer is to direct, produce and appear in the film which will include concert footage, backstage scenes and interviews with her and her loved ones about her life. The documentary will focus on the release of her 2011 album 4, as well as her marriage to Jay-Z and the birth of the couple's daughter Blue Ivy in January 2012.
The former Destiny's Child star has been presenting different Hollywood studios with 20 minutes of footage in a bid to find the right distributor. Beyonce has had experience of directing in the past thanks to her MTV mini-documentary Beyonce: Year of 4 which showed her in the studio working on new tracks.
The 30-year-old R&B superstar is now set to follow in the footsteps of Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus with the fly-on-the-wall concert movie. The star teased fans on her official website in July with a cryptic message, "Leave Your Footprint On 19 August 2012," which could be linked to the documentary.
