Check out some key quotes and moments of the documentary below:
How Beyonce felt emotionally about firing her father:
I’m feeling very empty because of my relationship w/ my dad and I’m so fragile at this point…and i feel like my soul has been tarnished. Life is unpredictable but I feel like I had to move on. And I don’t care if I sell one record. It’s bigger than a record. It’s bigger than my career.
What caused her to fire her father:
At some point, you need your support system and you need your family. When you’re tryna have an everyday conversation with your family….I needed boundaries and I think my dad needed boundaries. It’s really easy to get confused w/ this world, with your job and you don’t know when to turn it off. You need a break. I needed a break.
Not being too afraid to show vulnerability:
[I had to] Stop pretending I have it all together. If I’m scared, I’m scared. I think I need to go listen to ‘make love to me’ and make love to my husband.
What was her reaction when she found out that she was pregnant with Blue Ivy:
Wow? Really, this is crazy. We’ll see what happens in the next chapter of my life because I have so much going on. Being pregnant was very much like falling in love. You are so open, you are so overjoy(ed). There’s no words that can express having a baby growing inside. But you just want to tell everyone. So I had to hide, something that was the best thing in my life.
The importance of sisterhood and there nothing like being a woman:
It’s difficult being a woman, it’s so much pressure. We need that support. I grew up in a house w/ my mother, who was a hair stylist. Women would come in that salon w/ problems..We all have the same insecurities. I have been around the world, I love my husband, but it’s nothing like having a conversation w/ a woman. I need my sisters.
Being a business woman:
Business and being polite doesn’t match. Me being polite is not me being fair to myself. Now I’m learning how political things are. A lot of the crazy things he did (my father) were necessary.
Her relationship with Jay-Z:
I think me marrying a musician is a coincidence. We connected on a spiritual level and he just so happened to be a musician. He’s taught me so much about being an artist. And fighting for what I believe. I’m like most women; i’m very generous. I usta be so afraid that people thought I was too difficult. I don’t really care about that anymore. I just pray Jay and I stay a team, bc right now, we’re very connected, [we] completely understand each other. This baby has made me love him more…I love him so much. We almost feel like one.
