Beyoncé Discusses Feminism, Fame & Marriage in Inspiring Short Film

December 13 marks the one-year anniversary when Beyoncé flipped the music industry on its head and dropped her surprise, visual album. Ahead of the date, the singer is giving fans even more by releasing a short film titled Yours and Mine. In the inspiring, 11:30-long visual, Bey touches on fame, feminism, love, loss, her childhood and other themes found within Beyoncé.

"I sometimes wish I could just be anonymous," Bey says in the video's opening sequence. "Walk down the street, just like everyone else. Before I was famous, I was the girl on the hill with a guitar, I was the girl that just wanted a beautiful view of the beach. And now that I'm famous it's very, very difficult to do very simple things."

Who knew Beyoné could play guitar?! There isn't even a picture of it! It's one of the many interesting facts and lessons the star offers in the film.

Bey also waxes on marriage ("There's nothing more exciting about having a witness to your life"), feminism ("It's just a person that believes in equality for men and women"), her body ("I've always been very, very specific and very choosy, very choosy, about what I do with my body and who I want to share that with"), celebrity ("There's nothing real about it") and much more.

Meanwhile, behind-the-scenes cuts of Beyoncé's music videos act as the background to Bey's guiding words. Look out for super cute scenes with Jay Z and baby Blue Ivy.

Happy anniversary, Beyoncé!
