Does this mean Blue Ivy will actually show her precious lil face? With an upcoming album to promote, BeyBey is up to her yearly attention grabbing tricks. This time it’s a documentary she directed and produced.

Via Beyoncé.com:

Multiple Grammy®-winner, entrepreneur and actress Beyoncé will be the focus of an intimate feature-length HBO documentary film debuting Feb. 16, 2013, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. Directed by the superstar, the film is a fusion of video that provides raw, unprecedented access to the private entertainment icon and high-voltage performances.

“Everybody knows Beyoncé’s music, but few know Beyoncé the person,” said Lombardo. “Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman.”

“HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity,” said Beyoncé. “Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming. This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home.”

The film is a multi-faceted portrait of the 16-time Grammy Award-winning singer, businesswoman, songwriter, actress, entrepreneur, wife and mother, showing off the extraordinary gifts that have made her a global phenomenon, and stripping away the veneer of stardom. It includes extensive first-person footage, some of it shot by Beyoncé on her laptop, in which she reflects on the realities of celebrity, the refuge she finds onstage and the transcendent joy of becoming a mother last year.

The film sheds light on her childhood in Houston, with home movies revealing the close bond she built with her family and charts the challenges Beyoncé felt when she decided to manage her career and build her own company, Parkwood Entertainment. The film also captures the intense physical and emotional demands she goes through in the studio, preparing for live performances, running a business and her family life including her return to the spotlight after the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, in January 2012.

Beyoncé also serves as the film’s executive producer.

Can’t believe y’all are still falling for these same tricks. Does this chick not come out with a new DVD or film special every year that promises never-before-seen footage and access to her notoriously private life?

And every year is it not the same lame behind the same footage of frantic fans, frazzled staff members and tired home video from Houston?

Just sayin’.

Now, if she was gonna make a guest appearance on “Boardwalk Empire” to take Gyp Rosetti out … that might be worth talking about.

Wake us up when Blue Ivy is walking, talking and no longer hiding her face in her mom’s expensively clad shoulder.
