Oprah Winfrey recently announced that she will interview Beyonce Knowles in what will be the singer's first sit-down interview since her incredible Super Bowl halftime show performance.

The media mogul confirmed Sunday that after months of trying, Beyonce, 31, finally agreed to appear on the popular show "Oprah's Next Chapter."

"Can't wait to talk to Beyoncé. Special #NextChapter on OWN Saturday night 8/7c," Oprah tweeted.

Just six months prior, the talk show host reached out to one of her Twitter followers while attempting to secure an interview with the Grammy award-winning singer. Oprah has previously interviewed Beyonce at least three times.

"See if you can convince Beyonce, I haven't had luck yet," Oprah tweeted in August 2012.

Oprah last sat down with Beyonce in 2008, shortly after her private wedding to hip hop mogul Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter. While they did briefly discuss marriage and her childhood, Beyonce made it clear that for the most part her personal life was off bounds.

In recent months Beyonce, 31, has gradually become more relaxed about her privacy and in a series of interviews she has opened up about her marriage to Jay-Z and motherhood. Some critics expect that the singer will likely be more candid in her upcoming interview with Oprah.

On Feb. 16 Beyonce's self produced documentary "Life Is But A Dream" will air on the HBO and fans will reportedly get an up close ad personal glimpse into the life of one of the world's biggest names in music.

"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."

Viewers will see the usually glamorous "Sasha Fierce" in a more vulnerable state and while there is a lot of footage of Beyonce performing, she also opens up about heartbreak and other challenges.

"People see celebrities, and they have money and fame, but I'm a human being," she 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."
