Randy Taraborrelli is giving us the true story of Queen Bey's childhood. Patti Smith is unveiling the secrets behind her most famous lyrics. Drew Barrymore is allowing us to feast our eyes on her most personal photographs, DeGeneres is inviting us into her jaw-droppingly designed homes, and one of the best historical writers alive is diving deep into the history of Salem's witches.
