February 2013 will be the month in which Beyoncé Knowles actually begins to execute her plan for global domination. According to regular collaborator The-Dream, Bey will likely reveal a couple of new tracks for her upcoming album at the Super Bowl halftime show on February 3rd, adding ominously, “now she’s in a place where she’s ready to start gearing up to reveal her plan." What could this plan be? Is it global domination? Is it to prime Blue Ivy Carter for some kind of takeover? Are the Illuminati involved? (The answer, if you read a lot of conspiracy-obsessed message boards, is “Yes, of course.”)
On February 16th, after we have all become aware of Beyoncé’s master plan, she will air her self-directed autobiographical HBO documentary, also titled Beyoncé. The singer released a brief and mildly creepy trailer for the doc, which leads with the all-important question: “I always battle with ‘How much do I reveal about myself?’” And not much is revealed in 25 seconds—there are some interesting-angled selfies, ravenous fans, some shots with the family, a brief close-up of her baby bump, some pyrotechnics. You know, just a day in the life of Beyoncé. Watch.
