At the time it was a private way to capture her changing body, now it stands for the change of the pop star's career trajectory and, is one of the many very intimate snapshots the singer is revealing to the world in her new film about her life.

The former Destiny’s Child front woman will air the ‘intimate’ documentary film on HBO on February 16 but on Monday it's teaser trailer hit the internet.
Featuring everything from the polished singer we are used to seeing perform to a makeup free Beyoncé confessing her feelings into her computer at home, the documentary has been a struggle to out together, the 31-year-old reveals.
'I always battle with, 'How much do I reveal about myself?'" the signer reveals in the teaser.
'If I'm scared, be scared, allow it. Release it.'
The documentary will include home movies, her reflections on her family’s role in her career including when she decided to fire her father Matthew Knowles as her manager, and the struggles she went through to building her own company, Parkwood Entertainment.
'Directed by the superstar, the film is a fusion of video that provides raw, unprecedented access to the private entertainment icon and high-voltage performances,' the network said when announcing the upcoming film last month.
The 31-year-old had been personally searching for film partners since August.
