While on the red carpet, Bey explained why it was necessary for her to get more personal with her fans through this documentary:
I felt like it was time. I felt like after 16 years of being a singer, people didn’t know who I was which was conscious because I feel like mystique is very important and I will always keep certain things to myself because it’s only natural. I felt like I had a story to tell and hopefully some people to inspire. This movie has been like therapy and I’ve healed so many wounds and I now understand some of the things I went through and why I went through them.
I hope that Blue Ivy will see all of the beautiful times, all of the tough times that led up to her being here and I’m hoping that she will always have it and it will comfort her in her life when she needs it.
Other celebs spotted at the event included Oprah, Tyson Beckford, June Ambrose, Questlove, Solange, Cynthia Bailey, The-Dream, Selita Ebanks, Angela Simmons, Chris Rock and more.
