"Extra's" AJ Calloway spent Sunday with superstar Beyoncé at a screening of her "I AM...World Tour" DVD -- and the singer opened up about why the film is so special to her.
"I'm so excited, this is my directorial debut," she told AJ. "I am just thrilled that my fans are going to be in the theater with me and I can't wait for everyone to see it."
Beyoncé's DVD offers rare, behind-the-scenes footage of her dramatic personal life, plus amazing performances of more than 20 hits transformed for the stage.
"It took me nine months to edit because I wanted to show a little bit of each show, each performance on tour, and it was 116 shows, so you can only imagine how much work it was, bit it was worth it," gushed Beyoncé.
The singer also talked about her good friend, Gwyneth Paltrow, who asked Beyoncé to help her get ready for her performance in "Country Strong."
What kind of tips did Beyoncé give Gwyneth? "I didn't have to give her any tips. She's incredible. I'm very proud of her. She did such a fantastic job!"
Footage from the DVD will air on Thanksgiving at 9:30 PM EST on ABC.
