Beyoncé Giselle Knowles, former child of destiny who has a penchant for dropping albums when you're not looking, was born to Celestine Beyince and Matthew Knowles on September 4th 1981. But you already knew that didn't you?
Since breaking from Destiny’s Child to go solo, Beyoncé has released six studio albums, won over 20 Grammys, given birth to one future President and dominated the charts of all 196 countries on the planet. In 2009, she unjustly lost the MTV VMA for Best Video to Taylor Swift, thus sparking one of the biggest celeb beefs in the history of celeb beefs. ('Single Ladies' WAS the best video of all time to be fair.)
Fun fact: Together with her sister and fellow legend, Solange Knowles, they are the first sisters to have both scored No. 1 albums (and in the same year, no less.) They slay.
