TV One on One
|Tonight at 8pm EST Kathy Hughes will have a 'one on one' interview with Beyonce. Here's a description of the interview:|
On Thursday, Dec. 14 Beyonce received two Golden Globe nominations for her work in "Dreamgirls." Just last week she received five Grammy nods for her latest album. Beyonce's new album, "B-day," was released the day after her 25th birthday on September 5, 2006. She made history in 2001 when she won Pop Songwriter of the Year Award for "Independent Woman" from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. She was the first African-American woman - and the second woman ever - to win the prestigious honor. In the latest edition of TV One on One, the incomparable Beyonce opens up to Cathy Hughes about her childhood, her musical inspiration and her role in "Dreamgirls." The film also stars Eddie Murphy, Jamie Foxx and "American Idol" finalist Jennifer Hudson.
In the film Beyonce plays the role of Deena, a member of the all-girl singing group "The Dreamettes" who goes from obscurity to fame. Beyonce tells Hughes that she lost 20 pounds for the role and underwent a major transformation in order to play someone so unlike herself.
"In the movie, I did not recognize myself at all, so know I did my job," says Beyonce. In real life, 25-year-old Beyonce tells Hughes that she has been working with producers and songwriters since the age of nine. Her father Matthew Knowles would take her to auditions and talent shows, while her mother Tina Knowles, a cosmetologist and designer, would help her get her look together before hitting the stage. Beyonce reveals that this is not the first transformation her body has under gone. "I was a chubby kid," she tells Hughes. She also reveals to Hughes during the interview what her mother had to do to get her body into performance shape.
Beyonce and Hughes also talk about the last time they both saw Gerald Levert, Destiny's Child, the clothing line she and her mother started, House of Dereon, and much more.
