Beyonce Knowles never ceases to amaze her followers. If there's one megastar who can bring home the bacon and fry it up in a pan, it's our girl Bey. From being the lead singer of her girl group Destiny's Child, to raising her own little girl, Blue Ivy, Mrs. Carter is one to watch.
Although the singer and her husband Jay-Z are notoriously private, Bey has taken steps recently to share herself more with her fans. First Beyonce dramatically revealed her pregnancy at last year's MTV Awards. Then the singer gave a window into her home life in the music video "I Was Here." She even showed her secret wedding gown. Beyonce also unloaded a slew of personal photos onto a tumblr account giving "Bey Stans," as her supporters are affectionately known, an upfront view. Never one to rest on her laurels, she joined the UN's global humanitarian campaign.
Beyonce is now ready to direct a documentary about herself. At almost 31 years old, the singer has done it all and is ready for life's next chapter. The girl from Houston still apparently has big dreams. The memoir pic will delve into her life presumably a la Katy Perry's "Part of Me 3D" or Justin Bieber's "Never Say Never."
This won't be the singer's first big screen flick, of course, however it will be her first foray into directing. The star has an interesting resume of movies. Let's take a look at Bey's body of film work.
Beyonce used "Dreamgirls" to cement her triple threat status in Hollywood. When she belted out "Listen" there wasn't a dry eye in any movie theater. Luckily her fans are able to enjoy her work in this classic film for more than "One Night Only." She was the perfect person to play Deena Jones.
Fans enjoyed a fun side of the "Bootylicious" performer when she played Foxxy Cleopatra. The role was reminiscent of such legendary blaxploitation stars as Pam Grear and Tamara Dobson. Beyonce proudly rocked a big, beautiful afro wig and held her own against funnyman Mike Meyers. Bey is one reason "Austin Powers in Goldmember" rocked.
Ms. Knowles portrayed the legendary Etta James in the 2008 flick, "Cadillac Records." Her vocal chops on the project scored her an invitation to sing at President Barack Obama's inauguration. As Mr. President danced a lovely waltz with first lady Michelle Obama, Bey sang "At Last." It was a powerful moment.
We look forward to Beyonce's documentary. Will she tell the real story of Destiny's Child? Can fans hope to see more moments with baby Blue and Shawn Carter?
