Beyonce will be taking fans behind-the-scenes of her latest album 4 with a new exclusive MTV special, “Beyonce: Year of 4″. The special is set to air on Thursday at 7:30pm on MTV, BET, VH1, and Palladia with encore presentations following.
The exclusive will show Beyonce’s life from her last I Am… Tour show, to taking her mother’s advice and taking some time away from the spotlight. “My life was award shows and tour buses and hotels and it kind of goes by so fast … I couldn’t even hear it anymore … I’m just thinking about the next shoot … the next video … the next tour.” She will be giving an in-depth look at her year off as she spends time with her husband, family, and friends. “I never even realized I needed a year off,” Beyonce says. “And I never realized I don’t know how to take a year off.”
Of course, we also get a look at the process of making the album, and how she took charge of her career: “It was very risky for me to set out on my own … Sometimes we don’t reach for the stars, sometimes we are satisfied with what people tell us we’re supposed to be satisfied with, and I’m just not going for it.”
