Her father Mathew Knowles managed Destiny's Child, her mother Tina designed the group's costumes, and her little sister Solange is also a singer.
Notoriously private and refuses to discuss her relationship with rapper Jay-Z
Tina Turner. Did you see the video to Work it Out?

I like to dress sexy and I carry myself like a lady. But the way I dress on stage is absolutely for the stage."
Did you know?
Beyoncé got her name from her mother's family name, Beyince.
Why we love her:
