BEYONCÉ KNOWLES

Cover girl:
December 2003, July 2005, along with Michelle and Kelly, and December 2006

Date of birth:
4 September, 1981

Family:
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.

Love life:
Notoriously private and refuses to discuss her relationship with rapper Jay-Z

The new:
Tina Turner. Did you see the video to Work it Out?

Breakthrough moment:
Winning five Grammys in 2004 proved without doubt that she's just as good without Destiny's Child as she is with them.

Biggest hit:
2003's Crazy In Love. It still makes us want to get up and boogie every time it comes on the radio.

Most likely to:
Wiggle her booty in a show-stoppingly-short outfit; although she claims the girl on stage - her alter-ego 'Sasha' - is nothing like her real self. "I'm old enough to wear sexy outfits now... 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:
The songs; the clothes; the dance moves. We don't just love Beyoncé: we want to be her.
