The trailer for Nick Broomfield‘s unauthorized Whitney Houston documentary — titled Whitney: Can I Be Me — has finally arrived. 

The visual begins with the late music icon saying in a vintage interview, “You know, [it] probably doesn’t matter anyway because they’re gonna remember me how they wanna remember me anyway,” setting the tone for the rest of the trailer.

More scenes follow of the singer during various moments of her extraordinary career — including a church performance and media interviews — while the promo highlights what appears to have been Whitney’s struggles with fame and her initial aversion to being packaged as a pop princess. 

The documentary premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York last month and is scheduled to arrive in theaters across the U.K. on June 16. So far, there’s no date for a U.S. wide release, although the film is slated to premiere on Showtime sometime in August.
