Oprah could not contain her excitement about the interview as she shared every step of the process in photos on Twitter earlier Tuesday; from deciding what dress she'd wear, to views of the clouds from her plane window, and crossing the George Washington Bridge once in New York.
Finally, during the interview, Oprah shared a photo of herself and Beyoncé laughing together candidly, like old friends.
"Did we have fun or what?," Oprah tweeted.
Later, Beyoncé switched from the leather pants, T-shirt and blazer she wore for her interview to a glittering champagne-colored gown for the "Life is But a Dream" premiere.
The film was screened at the Ziegfeld Theater, Gossip Center reports, and Beyoncé shared a photo of herself posing on the red carpet on Instagram.
Oprah also attended the premiere.
The much-anticipated documentary was co-directed by Beyoncé and Ed Burke. Teaser trailers have revealed that the film will delve into Beyoncé's pregnancy and the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy, among many aspects of the singer's dream life.
In an interview for Vogue magazine's March issue, the singer talks about how her baby girl has changed her life.
“She’s my road dog. She’s my homey, my best friend,” Beyoncé said. "I feel like I have something that has grounded me so much more."
The R&B superstar has notably begun revealing more about her life than ever before, with several intimate magazine interviews, her "Next Chapter" interview, and her documentary 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."
"Life is But a Dream" premiers on HBO Feb. 16, while "Oprah's Next Chapter" with Beyoncé also airs Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. Eastern, 9 p.m. Central on the OWN network.
