Beyonce releases a new DVD documenting her one-year non-stop world tour. Besides concert footages, there is also a personal side of her life as the singer speaks of how she feels when she’s traveling around the world.
Beyonce produced, directed, and edited the documentary. “I wanted the fans to be able to see what I see. It’s a lot of things I reveal about myself that I could never give to a director.”
In stating her reason for making the documentary, she says, “I feel like the only way I can truly tell the story is if I am a part of it. There are a lot of things that I reveal about myself that I would have never given to a different director.”
In the documentary, we can see Beyonce experiencing hard times as well during the tour, such as when she is exhausted after having performed nine nights in a row and she says “nobody cares.”
“When you work that hard, you just need someone to say stop. You know? Your voice is a muscle and it needs rest, and imagine nine days,” she said. “I was just delirious and feeling sorry and bad and I was like, you know, ‘I need rest.’ … And in the end, I cried because clearly I’m a human being and I bleed and I hurt and I cry and I fall just like anybody else.”
