Beyonce Fans out There......Things to Know About Her

  • Beyoncé has accomplished more in her music career over the past 15 years than most people accomplish in a lifetime. From starring in major box office flicks to breaking records on the music charts, she has maintained her place as one of today's biggest pop-music superstars.
  • Beyoncé has a lifetime membership to her favorite fast-food restaurant, Popeyes.
  • Beyoncé started dating her husband, Jay-Z, in 2000, and three years later, the two recorded Hov's hit single '03 Bonnie & Clyde.'
  • Though she was home schooled in her later years, Beyoncé is said to have been teased in grade school because of her over sized ears.
  • At the 35th annual American Music Awards, she took the stage and performed her #1 hit 'Irreplaceable,' and later in the show, became the first woman to win an International Artist Award.
  • The 'Single Ladies' singer attended Alief Elsik High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in her hometown of Houston.
  • She's appeared in several comedies and dramas over the last 10 years since making her feature-film debut in the comedy 'Austin Powers Goldmember,' playing Foxxy Cleopatra.
  • She's been a spokesperson for some of the world's biggest brands, but in 2003, the 'Obsessed' star earned her first cosmetic contract with L'Oreal.
  • She didn't make it on Fortune's "Top Entertainers" list for nothing. As a child, Beyoncé charged her parents' house guests $5 each to watch her perform.
  • After eight years of dating, Beyoncé tied the knot with her rap star boyfriend, Jay-Z, in an intimate New York ceremony on April 4, 2008.
  • She made history as the first non-model and non-athlete, and only the second African American after Tyra Banks, to pose for the cover of Sports Illustrated in 2007.
  • Beyoncé also holds the record as the female artist with the most top 10 records on the Hot 100 chart in this decade.
  • To date, Beyoncé's biggest acting role was as a Diana Ross-like character named Deena Jones in the Academy Award-nominated film 'Dreamgirls,' for which she garnered a Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actress in a musical or comedy.
  • Though it went under the radar, Beyoncé took home six of the 10 Grammy awards she was nominated for this year, making history as the only female artist to win six trophies in one night.
  • Beyoncé unintentionally was the cause of Kanye West's infamous VMA tirade, in which the Chicago rapper interrupted Taylor Swift's acceptance speech to proclaim, "Beyoncé had the greatest video of all time."
  • Early in their career, Destiny's Child, which was originally named Girls Tyme, got its start as an opening act for fellow '90s girl group SWV.
  • While overseas on tour with her group mates, Beyoncé crafted the chart-topping single 'Bootylicious,' and the term was later added to the Oxford English Dictionary following its 2001 success.
  • The former Vogue magazine cover girl has amassed virtually every music award known to man – most notably, she has 16 Grammy awards, including 13 as a solo artist and three as a member of Destiny's Child.
  • In homage to her grandmother, she launched a clothing company, called House of Deréon, with her stylist mother, Tina Knowles.
  • Known for her humble demeanor, Beyoncé returned to Destiny's Child to release the group's fourth and final studio album, 'Destiny Fulfilled,' even after she released her highly successful debut, 'Crazy in Love.'
  • Though they have consistently maintained privacy and rarely talk about their relationship to the media, both Beyoncé and Jay-Z find little ways to show their devotion to each other; they both have the roman number IV tattooed on their ring fingers.
  • After being the spokesperson for Tommy Hilfiger's True Star fragrance and Emporio Armani's Diamonds, Beyoncé launched her own perfume, Heat, in 2010.
  • She clocked 29 years Sept 4th, 2010.
