It's BEY-DAY! And we couldn't let you finish the day without getting a mega dose of one of our favorite singers and entertainers of all time: Beyonce Knowles!
31-year-old Bey got her big break as the lead singer of Destiny's Child, and under the management of her father Mathew and the styling influences of her mom Tina, the group became the most successful female R&B group to date.
With hits like "Say My Name," "Bills, Bills, Bills," and Beyonce's vulnerable track "Dangerously In Love," the three were an unstoppable force in the music industry.
Beyonce moved onto a solo career, in which she became a trendsetter, mogul, role model and icon. All four of her solo albums peaked at number 1 on the US charts (no lower than number 3 in the UK), turning her into a "World Wide Woman," from her beginnings as a humble Texas belle.
Always on the right arm of legendary hip-hop icon Jay-Z, the gorgeous girl continued to break the mold and bend the rules. For one, her first solo album won her a total of five Grammy Awards!
The woman has sung live and danced while upside down and tied to a rope. She had the whole world wearing leotards and taping their own renditions of "Single Ladies" for YouTube.
Bey was awarded a Billboard Millennium Award. She starred in hit films such as Dream Girls, Cadillac Records and Obsessed. She even got to sing for President Obama and First Lady Michelle's first dance at the Inaugural Ball.
These are just a few accomplishments on a long roster of why she "got every reason to feel like [she's] that bitch!"
In 2012, Beyonce is still married to her longtime man Jay-Z, and a great mom to the heiress of their throne, Blue Ivy Carter.
Bey and her mom have revamped their clothing line House of Dereon, and she's also made it her business to connect to fans through Tumblr and video footage of her life!
From just a little girl, Beyonce has always been in tune with her purpose in life and her hard work and dedication seems to have come full circle.
With newer goals, such as reaching 1 billion people this past Humanitarian Day, and encouraging the world to do something good for another person, Beyonce Knowles has definitely grown in so many ways.
She is fabulous, one of a kind and groundbreaking! We would like to wish Bey a very happy, happy birthday! ENJOY!
