Beyoncé Talks 'A Star Is Born' And 'I Was Here' With Reuters
July 22nd 2011
Reuters recently spoke with Beyoncé about her upcoming lead role in the Clint Eastwood remake of A Star Is Born, as well as the birth of her new Diane Warren-penned ballad, "I Was Here". About the latter, Beyoncé revealed:
I got a call from Diane and she played the song on guitar over the phone, and I said, "Oh my god, I have to have this song." It was inspired by September 11. It's the tenth anniversary and I thought, "Wow, this really completes my album."
