The superstar and mum of baby Blue will make her directorial debut next year
Beyonce has conquered the world of music and become mum to baby Blue Ivy - and now she's set to make her directorial debut.
The singer will take charge of an 'intimate' tell-all documentary about her life, which will air on American network HBO in February.
Announcing the upcoming film, the network revealed: 'Directed by the superstar, the film is a fusion of video that provides raw, unprecedented access to the private entertainment icon and high-voltage performances.'
Beyonce added she was delighted to be making the documentary. 'This film was so personal to me, she said. 'It had to have the right home.'
It's thought the footage, partly shot on her laptop, will show the superstar reflect on 'the realities of celebrity, the refuge she finds onstage and the transcendent joy of becoming a mother last year'.
Everybody knows Beyoncé's music, but few know Beyoncé the person,' Michael Lombardo, president HBO Programming, said.
'Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman.'
Since giving birth to baby Blue Ivy last year, the fiercely guarded singer has gradually begun letting fans in on her private life, starting instagram and Tumblr accounts and sharing personal snaps.
Over the weekend Beyonce posted several adorable photos of baby Blue Ivy at Thanksgiving, as well as a special message to fans.
