Beyonce has confirmed that she will star in the remake of A Star is Born with Clint Eastwood. She told Robin Roberts on Good Morning America, “Clint Eastwood, can you believe that? I can’t believe it still. I know when I met with him I was like in awe and I’m so, so honored that he believes in me. I can’t wait to do this film; I represent this generation’s talent and for me to be the chosen person as a African American woman is incredible.”
She also spoke on her new album, 4. She said, “It’s all of my musical influences and everything that has inspired me over my travels. I was able to go and see some festivals and see some of the artists I’d never get to see because I rarely get to watch a performance. It’s a bit of rock, jazz, and a lot of live instrumentation.”
- She continued, “I wanted to bring chords, bridges and melody back on the radio and that was my goal. I figured after all these years; I earned the right to have artistic freedom and just make good music and not try to make regular songs.
