Beyoncé confirms documentary

The singer has announced plans to direct and star in a new autobiographical documentary for HBO

The 'Love On Top' singer will offer fans an insight into her personal life with behind-the-scenes footage as well as some of her most "electrifying" on stage performances.

President of HBO Michael Lombardo said the intention of the new documentary is to reveal "the person" behind the performer.

"Everybody knows Beyoncé's music, but few know Beyoncé the person," he said in a statement. "Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé on stage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman."

The film will premiere on US network cable HBO on 16th February, shortly after Bey makes her appearance at the halftime show of next year's NFL Super Bowl.
