“I’ve earned the right to be me”: Beyoncé
Beyoncé’s been in show business almost her entire life – starting out at nine and putting out her first album as a part of Destiny’s Child at age 15.
She always felt she could not quite venture out on a limb and express the full breadth of her soul – so mindful of her audiences.
‘Now I’m in my 30s, and those children that grew up listening to me have grown up, and I always felt like it was my responsibility to be aware of kids and their parents and all these generations,’ the 32-year-old singer says in the fifth installment of her documentary, entitled Self-Titled Part 5. Honesty.

‘And I felt like, in a sense, I could not express everything. I’ve done so many things in my life, in my career, that I feel like at this point I’ve earned the right to be me and to express any and every side of myself.’
Thus in her latest album, ‘The glue that ties this record together is honesty,’ the Crazy in Love singer, who wears a simple white T-shirt and denim shorts, states at the beginning of the video.
Her rawness and passion shine through in clips from her black and white video for Rocket, featuring a lingerie clad Beyoncé lying down, then standing tall at the edge of her bed, relaxing by a kitchen sink, and then lying atop a car, lighting up a cigarette.
