Quotes from the FilmEdit
- On surrogate/fake pregnancy rumors:
“There’s a stupid rumor. The most ridiculous rumor I think I’ve ever had about me. It’s crazy. To think I would be that vain – I respect mothers and women so much and to be able to experience bringing a child into this world, if you’re lucky and fortunate enough to experience that, I would never, ever take that for granted. It’s the most powerful thing you can do. Especially after losing a child, the pain and trauma from that just makes it mean so much more to get an opportunity to bring life into the world. It seems like people should have boundaries." [Source]
- On artists who put quantity over quality:
"People don't make albums anymore .. They just try to sell a bunch of quick singles and they burn out, and they put out a new one, and they burn out, and they put out a new one..."
Approximately 1.8 million people tuned in to watch Beyoncé's Life is but a Dream premiere on HBO on Saturday, February 16, 2013 - the most-watched documentary in almost ten years. [Source]
