Not willing to sit around and wait for someone else to do it, Beyoncé has decided that the world needs a Beyoncé and that she’s the one most fit to make it. According to the Los Angeles Times, Bey and her agents have begun shopping a film — “a mix of music and personal study, blending concert footage with confessional interview,” to be directed by Beyoncé herself — to Hollywood studios. Pop star, mom and wife, actress, blogger extraordinaire — if anyone is fit to do it all, we would count the Queen B. This project should be fast tracked in no time.
Last summer, she starred in (but did not direct) a mini-documentary about the run up to and making of her album 4. Beyoncé: Year of 4 included footage of Bey floating in the Red Sea (“The coral was spectacular!”), making ROC diamond shadow puppets with her nephew Juelz, and whittling down a track-list with Jay in a label boardroom. Running just twenty minutes, it was an intimate and insightful look into one of today’s biggest stars, and we can only anticipate what a full-length feature, à la Katy Perry’s Part of Me or Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never, might show. More Blue Ivy, that best be for sure.
