  • She Made History With Her 'Vogue' Cover


    A post shared by Tyler Mitchell (@tylersphotos) on


    Beyoncé landed the cover of Vogue's 2018 September Issue, and editor-in-chief Anna Wintour gave Beyoncé complete creative control. Beyoncé elected to hire Tyler Mitchell to shoot her cover. Mitchell is the first Black photographer to shoot a Vogue cover in the magazine's 126-year history. She explained her choice in the magazine:

    Until there is a mosaic of perspectives coming from different ethnicities behind the lens, we will continue to have a narrow approach and view of what the world actually looks like. That is why I wanted to work with this brilliant 23-year-old photographer Tyler Mitchell.

  • She Called Out Jay-Z's Infidelity with an Entire "Visual Album"

    It's not really clear why anyone would cheat on Beyonce, but apparently Jay-Z made that grave mistake. Not one to sit down and take it lightly, Bey dropped a "visual album" in April of 2016 that included an hour-long movie/music video/masterpiece effectively outing Hova for his infidelity. It included some controversial, touchy, and jarringly raw lyrics alluding to everything from his troubled past to his favorite side pieces. What's more, she dropped the album on Tidal, the steaming service OWNED by Jay. That's bold. By the end of the video (which also aired on HBO), the couple seems to be working toward reconciliation. Here's hoping the album, Lemonade, doesn't put an end to it.

    In 2013, Beyoncé got her hair tangled up in a stage fan MID-SONG while performing "Halo" in Montreal.  But like the pro she is, she KEPT SINGING!  She didn't miss a beat. Eventually, a crew member with a pair of scissors cut Beyoncé free.  Talk about a tough chick and consummate professional!

    Mrs. Carter actually changed the lyrics of her song "Single Ladies" to support gay marriage. Yes, Bey is a big LGBT rights supporter, even launching her own brand of "gay friendly" underwear.  She also took part in the Human Rights Campaign, supporting gay marriage and love above all.

    Motherhood is very important to Beyoncé. She's making sure that her daughter, Blue Ivy, has as normal a life as possible, keeping her away from the public eye.  After giving birth, Beyoncé said in an interview, "You see things a bit differently after you give birth and my biggest job now is to protect my child.”  And it's a job she takes very seriously.

  • She Gives Back... A Lot

    Not only is Beyoncé a co-founder of the Survivor Foundation, which helps victims of Hurricane Katrina, but she also teamed up with Feeding America to fight hunger. She's a co-founder of CHIME FOR CHANGE, a platform designed to empower women and girls through education, health, and justice. If that's not enough, she also donates her time and money to other charities including MusiCares, Stand Up To Cancer, and Oxfam.
