Beyoncé is crazy in love with her own movie
Saturday 08 December 2012
Warbling, it appears, just isn't enough for some singers. Beyoncé is the latest musician who has turned director with a documentary about (what else?) herself, for the US network HBO.
Slated for transmission in the US in February, it promises fans behind-the-scenes access, and a peek into how the 31-year-old balances motherhood, running a business... and booty-shaking.
And Kula Shaker's Crispian Mills cast poor Simon Pegg in one of the turkeys of the year, A Fantastic Fear of Everything. But Plan B did better with his well-received directorial debut, Ill Manors. Ice T directed the fascinating Something From Nothing: The Art of Rap, while the Wu-Tang Clan's RZA helmed Far Eastern fisticuffs flick The Man With the Iron Fists. Meanwhile Madonna directed the epic W.E.
Delve into the archives and you find more nuggets: former Beatle Ringo Starr directed a 1972 portrait of Marc Bolan called Born To Boogie. Pocket-sized popstrel Prince is the director of two obscure films – 1986's Under The Cherry Moon, and 1990's Graffiti Bridge.
