Beyonce's got folks going agog over her latest MTV's "Year of 4" special.

The tell-all documentary premiered last night and Bey already shared a surprising -- but fun -- secret with fans: “I’m always happy when I’m surrounded by water. I think I was a mermaid,” she said. “The ocean makes me feel really small and it makes me put my whole life into perspective… it humbles you and makes you feel almost like you’ve been baptized. I feel born again when I get out of the ocean.”

The segment opens with black and white footage of a beautiful Bey on the beach as she shares her mer-life confession. Did you miss the special last night? Definitely check out the segment (above) -- it's worth the watch!
