At what point can we all agree that Beyoncé has successfully conquered the world? In the past month alone, the woman has sung (fine, lip synched) the national anthem at the presidential inauguration, covered the March “Power” Issue of Vogue, turned the Super Bowl into a Beyoncé concert, and announced her latest world tour, only to have the first shows sell out in seconds. Last night, the pop star hosted a premiere for her upcoming HBO documentary, “Beyoncé: Life Is But A Dream”, at New York’s Ziegfeld Theatre, and, naturally, Queen Bey was the toast of the town.
The crowd included hubby Jay-Z, Oprah Winfrey, Arianna Huffington, Doutzen Kroes, and Rubin Singer, the young designer behind Bey’s Super Bowl getup. And while the superstar confessed to reporters that she had the jitters before the screening, having only yet seen the film in the company of her husband and mother, she also said she was confident that the time was right:
“I felt like I had a story to tell, and hopefully some people to inspire. And I really grew so much; this movie has been my therapy. I’ve healed from so many wounds and I’ve been able to understand why some of the things I’ve been through, why I went through them soi I feel really proud and hopefully that can inspire other people.”
