Beyonce is one of the most successful and brightest stars in the world. She fell in love with singing in early childhood and regularly took part in various talent contests. In 1990, she became a member of Girl’s Tyme group, which made a breakthrough after changing its name to Destiny’s Child in 1996.
Destiny’s Child recorded their eponymous debut album in 1998 and it immediately became platinum. It was followed by 4 more albums and the highest grossing one was The Writing’s on the Wall. Though the group disbanded in 2006, Beyonce and her group mates proceeded with collaborating on some projects.
Beyonce started her solo path in 2003 by presenting album Dangerously in Love, which was certified platinum 4 times. To date, the artist has presented 6 studio albums, all of which were extremely successful and made her one of the best-selling musicians in the world.
Moreover, Beyonce earned many accolades, including 23 Grammys, 26 MTV Video Music Awards plus 9 American Music Awards.
Beyonce also deals with acting. She is famed for having parts in Carmen: A Hip Hopera, Austin Powers in Goldmember, The Pink Panther, Dreamgirls, Cadillac Records plus Obsessed movies. Moreover, she voiced Nala for The Lion King.
However, the artist never stops and regularly gets engaged into various ventures. Thus, she established Parkwood Entertainment company, released several fragrances, created House of Dereon fashion line with her mom as well as Ivy Park line with Topshop. Despite being a very busy person, Beyonce also supports various charitable foundations and is a social activist.
In 2008, Beyonce tied knots with music artist Jay-Z at a low-key ceremony. The celebrity suffered several miscarriages before she gave birth to their firstborn, daughter Blue Ivy, in 2012. And in 2017, the couple was blessed with twins, Rumi and Sir.
A curious fact: despite releasing her own fragrances, Beyonce is allergic to many types of perfumes. That’s why her fragrances are often chemically altered so that the pop icon can use them.
