The pop force simply known as Beyonce celebrates her 32nd birthday today. Since entering mainstream music in 1998 as a part of the girl group Destiny’s Child, she’s emerged as a force to be reckoned with.
She officially went solo in 2003 with her breakout single “Crazy In Love,” which featured her then boyfriend Jay Z. She’s won over a dozen Grammy awards and had a slew of No. 1 singles along the way. She’s gone on to create memorable moments in pop culture, classic dance moves (“Single Ladies”, anyone?) and even got the word“bootylicious” added to the dictionary.
Outside of music, she’s starred in movies such as “Cadillac Records,” “Obsessed” and “Dreamgirls.” She became Mrs. Carter when she and Jay Z married in 2008. The two had their first child, Blue Ivy Carter, in 2012.
Most recently, she’s performed as this year’s Super Bowl Halftime act and is currently embarking on her “Mrs. Carter World Tour.”
