The second half of 2011 is shaping up to be a Beyonce year. As she gears up to release her forthcoming fourth studio album, 4, the Multi-Grammy winner confirms her role in the upcoming Clint Eastwood film ‘A Star Is Born.’
“It’s a dream come true; I’m still in shock that it’s really going to happen,’ Beyonce told Billboard. “Clint Eastwood is clearly the absolute best, and I’m so honored and humbled. I was in no rush to do another movie unless it was the right film, and I didn’t even want to touch “A Star is Born” unless it was with him. I actually learned that this project was in existence, and kind of claimed it. I want to get to work right now!”
In related news, Beyonce has been added to the line-up for Good Morning America’s 2011 Summer Concert Series. The R&B diva, along with big name stars like Lady Gaga, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson and Nicki Minaj will provide entertainment to early morning revelers at the Rumsey Playfield in Central Park in New York City beginning May 27th.
With the exception of Lady Gaga being a free, ticketed event, all concerts are free and open to the public and will take place live during “Good Morning America,” Fridays from 7 to 9 a.m. ET. Dates and additional acts will be announced throughout the summer.
