Beyonce Talks About New Album, Empowering Women Through Music and Starring in a Clint Eastwood Film


Beyonce Like You Have Never Seen Her Before

Always seemingly very genuine, the superstar revealed a rare and raw inside look at herself last year with the release of "Beyonce: I Am ... World Tour," a new DVD documenting her one-year, 119-stop world tour, which she directed herself.

"I feel like the only way I can truly tell the story is if I am a part of it," she said in a November 2010 interview with "Nightline's" Cynthia McFadden. "There are a lot of things that I reveal about myself that I would have never given to a different director."

Among the more candid moments on the DVD: An exhausted Beyonce talks about having performed nine nights in a row and "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."

Also expressed on the DVD is when something doesn't meet Beyonce's standards, she doesn't hesitate to say, "This doesn't work."

"I'm not a person that wants to do everyone's job," she told McFadden in 2010. "I don't want to do anyone's job. I want to hire the right people that can bring something to the table. But if something's wrong, then I'm definitely going to try and make it right."
