Beyoncé is getting personal.
HBO announced Monday that a documentary about the Grammy-winning singer will debut Feb. 16. Beyoncé is directing the film, which will include footage she shot herself with her laptop.
The network said the documentary will include video that provides raw, unprecedented access to the private entertainment icon and high-voltage performances. It will also feature home videos of her family and of the singer as a new mother and owner of her company.
Family blocks play
A play about Amy Winehouse that was to premiere in Denmark in January has been canceled after the late British singer’s family blocked its use of her music and photos.
Winehouse spokesman Chris Goodman said Monday the family had never granted the theater company permission to use the singer’s materials.
The play Amy was based on interviews, concerts, Winehouse’s letters and newspaper articles.
Justin Bieber faced a hostile homecoming during his halftime performance at Canada’s football Grey Cup, facing boos and jeers.
The Toronto crowd booed Sunday when the 18-year-old pop star’s face popped up on the JumboTron screen. They booed when a host spoke his name. And they booed as he took the stage and throughout his medley.
If Bieber was bothered, it didn’t show.
Thank you so much, Canada, Bieber said. I love you.
Earlier in the week, Bieber was presented with a Diamond Jubilee Medal by Prime Minister Stephen Harper and caused a scene by wearing overalls, unbuttoned on one shoulder, with a backward baseball cap.
