Beyonce Knowles has released a teaser of her upcoming mini documentary "Life Is But A Dream" and in it viewers will get an up close and personal look at the behind the scenes life of one of the world's biggest names in music.

Beyonce, who is renowned for maintaining her privacy, will finally open up and share her inner thoughts about her life as she enters motherhood for the first time and prepares her post-baby comeback performance.

"I always battle with how much do I reveal about myself," Beyonce says in the video. "How do I stay current? How do I stay soulful? I felt like I had been so commercially successful [but] it wasn't enough. It's something really stressful about having to keep up with that. You can't express yourself. You can't grow. It is the battle of my life."

In the documentary, which is set to air February 16 on HBO, the usually glamorous "Sasha Fierce" is seen in a more vulnerable state and the 31-year-old opens about her emotions and perspective on life.

"People see celebrities, and they have money and fame, but I'm a human being," the Grammy-award winning singer says. "I cry. I get scared. I get nervous just like everyone else. Power is not given to you, you have to take it. You're playing a part in a much bigger show and that's what life is."

In conjunction with watching Beyonce learn new choreography and interact with her fans, viewers will get an up close glimpse of her bare baby bump. The 31-year-old, who gave birth to Blue Ivy in 2012, was faced with months of surrogacy rumors before and after her baby was born.

Various critics including talk show host Wendy Williams accused the "Love On Top" singer of using a surrogate although Beyonce has insisted that baby Blue Ivy is both her and her husband Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter's biological child. When previously asked about her thoughts on the surrogate rumors, Beyonce said that she was shocked, according to

"That was crazy. It wasn't hurtful, it was just crazy! I [thought] 'Where did they come up with this?'" Beyonce told the publication.
