When Destiny’s Child topped the charts back in 2001, Beyonce was just another pretty face taking the stage. Fast forward 13 years, and she is still Queen B to millions of her fans.
From regularly hanging out with the Obamas to interacting with her 13 million Twitter fans, Beyonce knows how to get a crowd’s attention and keep them interested. Making headlines last month for the surprise release of her fifth album BEYONCÉ, the singer rose up the charts (again) in a matter of days with immediate success.
When she’s not busy pleasing millions of faithful fans, Beyonce is playing queen mom to her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. Blue Ivy recently celebrated her second birthday, and with parents like Bey and her famous dad Jay-Z, you can be sure we’ll be hearing her name in the ‘biz as she grows up.
We’re taking a look at some of Beyonce’s best (and worst) looks through the years in the list at the top of this article, but we want to know which version of Bey is your favorite. Do you prefer ‘Say My Name’ Bey from her Destiny’s Child days, ‘Single Ladies’ Sasha Fierce, or are you addicted to anything new she releases? Let us know in the comments below.
