She gave the fans what we wanted
21 February 2013 | by dbrown72-539-968284See all my reviews

Showing true humility, softness, fierceness and beauty. Just enough of her life to not over expose her but enough to create lactation for the 1.8 million fans watching the debut & the millions that will continue to watch it for the first time.

It is relatively geared for a woman to watch. All the "we run the world, girls" and ups & downs of pregnancy (that sincerely make a woman want to have a child) I think is suited for a woman to watch.

A solid majority of the documentary is filmed with beyonce's computer. It almost inspires me to do some self recording...haha.

Keep on being the best in the business, Beyonce & Jay.
