Her 2008 wedding to now-husband Jay-Z was a closely guarded secret, but Beyoncé is revealing a glimpse of the big day — a two-second glimpse — in her new video for the emotional single “I Was Here.”

Toward the end of the four-and-a-half-minute clip, which appears on vevo.com, the singer shares brief front and back shots of her flowing white wedding dress, which has never been seen publicly. The exaggerated sweetheart gown appears to have an elaborate fitted back with layers of fine fabric and a long train.

The rest of the video features major moments in Beyoncé’s life: meeting luminaries such as Nelson Mandela, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson and Oprah Winfrey; performing as a youngster and later as a member of Destiny’s Child; joining Jay-Z on stage in concert; and revealing her baby bump at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. She sings, “I wanna say I lived each day until I die,” and from the looks of this video, so far, she definitely has.

Must be nice to lead such an extraordinary life. I enjoyed the video. Beyonce isn’t the best that ever did it and she’s obviously influenced by Michael Jackson, Tina Turner, etc., but I’ll take her and her music over many of these knuckleheads you hear on the radio. She’s entertainment, pure and simple. Take her and all these other celebs for what they’re worth and move on.

What is most appalling is how plain and homely she looks without all the makeup! They put a lot of work into this woman’s hair and makeup to get her ready for the stage.

The montage is nice, but the ballad is forgettable. I wish she could find better songwriters.

May God grant you many more years of health and happiness Beyonce!

That was a great video showing the hard work she put into her work since she was a child and even though I don’t own any of her CDs, I can appreciate sencierity, kindness, and pure talent when I see it; unlike some of the unkind comments that are dispayed on some of these posts. The world does not need all these negativity and uncalled for rudness from some of you haters out there. It is just not in style.

Beyonce is great! Love this song and the dress is beautiful! She’s done nothing wrong for people to say negative things about her. If you want to bash someone, bash the talentless Kardashians.

That doesn’t look like her OR her extremely curvy figure I call BS on this one.
