In case you missed it, Oprah is a big fan of Beyoncé! Not only did she sit down with the singer for a special one-on-one session for “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” she also hit the red carpet with the 31-year-old at her “Life is But a Dream” premiere in NYC.
When “Extra’s” AJ Calloway caught up with Beyonce on the red carpet, she explained, “It’s time for people to know who I am.”
Oprah praised “Life is But a Dream,” telling AJ, “I thought it was riveting. I thought it was emotional… There is this goddess Beyoncé, but at the end of this you see her as a real person.”
The docu is a rare peek into the life of the uber-private superstar, who has a 1-year-old daughter with husband Jay-Z Carter. She admitted, “It was hard to see my mistakes, relive my struggles.”
Becoming a mother to Blue Ivy, however, made her story “complete.”
Beyoncé revealed, “Once I gave birth I said… ‘Okay, now everything makes sense. And now I know who I am. Now I know my message and I'm ready.’”
Reflecting on Jay-Z’s reaction to the film, she said, “I think he was very proud. I can see the growth of our relationship in the film. It was like therapy for me.”
Oprah’s interview and the documentary will air back-to-back on Saturday, Feb. 16 with the interview starting at 8 PM on OWN and the movie at 9 PM on HBO.
“I had an extraordinary interview with Beyoncé… she was authentic. She was herself. She was forthcoming,” Winfrey said.
