Report: Beyonce to direct documentary of her life, career

Beyonce has given us glimpses into her personal life in the past, but the superstar singer is reportedly ready to craft a documentary-length feature about her on-and-off-stage world.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the 30-year-old and her representation have been taking a project about her life and chart-topping career to different studios as of late, revealing about 20 minutes of the film's footage.

The paper cites a source with knowledge of the project who says that the documentary is a blend of Beyonce's concerts and more personal interviews, as it combines her "music and personal study."

The mom of one would star, direct in and produce the project, which isn't exactly new territory for the Grammy winner. As "20/20" noted last year, Beyonce also served as director and producer of her concert DVD, "Live at Roseland: Elements of '4,'" which, as this new project reportedly will, included her intimate shows at New York's Roseland Ballroom with past footage from her private life.

"I learned how to edit ... I'm an editor as well," Beyonce told Katie Couric at the time. "It is a lot of work, especially when I'm trying to tell stories that are from so many different eras, moments of my life."
