Earlier Tuesday, she interviewed Bey for an episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” that airs at 8 p.m. Saturday (Feb. 16) on OWN, followed by “Life Is But a Dream” at 9 p.m. on HBO.

Winfrey told “OMG! Insider” of the film: “Beyonce shows the power of vulnerability in a way we’ve never seen anyone do. She opened herself up. She let us see her vulnerable side. She became for us not just this mythical goddess. She became a real woman. She shocked me. I was in tears.”

“She did an amazing job,” Oprah continued. “People are going to be amazed. What’s going to happen now is that people are going to feel a connection to her that they wouldn’t have felt before, because she shows us how real she is. She understands that all pain is the same and the way she hurts is the same as other people hurt. That documentary is a game-changer.”
