R&B superstar Beyoncé attended the New York premiere of her HBO documentary “Life is But a Dream” Tuesday and said that she hopes the film will inspire her young daughter, Blue Ivy.
"I hope that she will see all of the beautiful times (and) all the tough times that led up to her being here," Beyoncé said, according to the Associated Press.
"I'm hoping that ... it can comfort her and inspire her in her life when she needs it."
The famous mom’s documentary debuted at the Ziegfeld Theater Tuesday.
Wearing a glittering champagne-colored gown, the singer posed for photos and spoke about the film, which captures Beyoncé documenting her life using the video camera on her computer over the course of several years, as well as features home movies from her childhood.
"I really grew so much," Beyoncé said of the film-making process. "This movie has really been my therapy. I've healed from so many wounds and I've been able to understand why some of the things I've been through, why I went through, so feel really proud, and hopefully I can inspire other people."
The film also delves into such personal matters as her miscarriage, reports of faking her pregnancy, and firing her father as her manager, the AP details.
"I felt that after 16 years of being a public singer, people didn't know who I was," she admitted. But then she added: "I will always keep certain things to myself because it's only natural."
Beyoncé has notably begun revealing more about her life than ever before, with several intimate magazine interviews, her “Oprah's Next Chapter” interview that will also air Saturday on the OWN network, as well as “Live is But a Dream,” in just the first two months of 2013.
"I always battle with how much I reveal about myself," Beyoncé said in a teaser trailer for the documentary. "If I'm scared, be scared. Allow it. Release it."
Having just interviewed Beyoncé earlier Tuesday, Oprah also attended the premiere, and said she felt the singer did a "much better job" of telling her own story.
"I wouldn't have been in the bedroom and in the closet and in the car and on vacation," Oprah said, according to the AP.
"Life is But a Dream" airs Feb. 16 on HBO.
