Most of the stage outfits for her daughter were later invented by Tina. The family also brought up a second child – Beyoncé’s sister Solange Knowles, who also became a popular singer.

Beyoncé started dating her first boyfriend when she was 12 years old. This relationship was more like friendship and lasted about 7 years, ending in nothing because of the girl’s career that began to develop rapidly.
In 2002, Beyoncé met rapper Sean Corey Carter, better known as Jay Z , with whom he recorded a joint song “03 Bonnie & Clyde” and a video clip for it.
According to the singer, the relationship with the musician developed slowly, and it took a year and a half before the couple first went on a date. Beyoncé also claims that she is not one of those women who want to get married as soon as possible. Beyoncé officially became Mrs. Carter on April 4, 2008.
The wedding took place in one of the districts of New York. Only close couples knew about the celebration, and friends and relatives, at the request of the newlyweds, were at the celebration without mobile devices. Beyoncé decided not to advertise the event to the public, so she did not wear an engagement ring until the Fashion Rocks concert on September 5.
In August 2011, at the MTV Video Music Awards, the singer told fans that she was pregnant, and in January 2012 gave birth to a daughter, who was named Blue Ivy Carter. Interestingly, before giving birth, Beyoncé, for the sake of conspiracy, registered at the clinic under the name Ingrid Jackson. Probably, the artist clearly separates public speaking from her personal life and tries to minimize the penetration of journalists into the family.
In 2017, Beyoncé confirmed that she was expecting twins. The performer considered the appearance of two children at once “twice a blessing” for her and her husband. The first month of their lives, daughter Rumi and son Sir spent in the intensive care unit, as they appeared ahead of schedule by caesarean section.
The singer herself suffered from toxemia before their birth, and when the condition began to threaten the life of both mother and babies, doctors performed an emergency operation. However, it was suggested that the twins for the star couple were carried by a surrogate mother.
While still a schoolgirl, Beyoncé started dancing in the girl rap group Girl’s Tyme, which included 6 members. The main goal of the team was to participate in the famous American television talent show Star Search.
However, the group failed in the competition, which forced the young singer to receive negative experience. After the failure, the team was reduced to a quartet, and was headed by Matthew Knowles and renamed Destiny’s Child. At first, the girls performed exclusively as an opening act for the then popular R’n’B groups, but in 1997 they were able to conclude a full-fledged contract with the recording studio Columbia Records.
The new group released several albums – Survivor of 2001, 8 Days of Christmas of the same year and the final recording of Destiny Fulfilled in 2004. Despite the new Grammy awards and multimillion-dollar sales of discs, the performers could not repeat the popularity of the second disc, and the band’s collapse was a matter of time.
Beyoncé’s real career as an independent singer began in 2003, when the singer released her debut album, Dangerously in Love. It went platinum four times and topped the most popular American Billboard chart. This recording brought Beyoncé five Grammy awards at once.
The title single of the album Crazy in Love, recorded together with Jay-Z, once again added to the singer’s treasury “Grammy” and several other awards. The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 for 8 weeks in a row. It was later used as the soundtrack for the movie Fifty Shades of Gray.
In 1999, the artist recorded the soundtrack for the movie The Best Man, sang and starred in the hip-hop opera Carmen in 2001, starred in the movie Austin Powers: Goldmember and recorded the solo single Work It Out for her.
Thriller “Obsession” is the only project where the singer’s vocal skills were not useful. Beyonce played the wife of an entrepreneur, a former secretary whose quiet life ends when a new assistant appears in her husband’s office. The filmography of the star also included the tapes “Life is like a dream” and “Dream girls”.
Style and images
Beyoncé attracts fans with her unique visual style of performance. The singer uses choreography, elaborate costumes and experiments with light to add variety to her performances. They help to create a unique image and external data.
With a height of 169 cm, Beyoncé’s weight is 59 kg, which is reflected in attractive feminine forms: the singer’s chest volume is 89 cm, the waist is 66 cm, and the hips are 102 cm.
Beyonce is considered not only the queen of pop music, but also a pop star, who became one of the first to permanently use the new generation of Lace Wigs. The number of false hairstyles in the singer’s wardrobe is in the tens and hundreds, and their cost reaches $ 1 million.
To create the perfect image, the singer at one time resorted to plastic. The artist is credited with rhinoplasty, mammoplasty, and liposuction. In 2011, she completely bleached her skin.
In 2020, with the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, the singer and her husband decided not to risk it and retired to an island located in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean. The musicians decided to extend their kind of house arrest until the situation in the USA changes.
In isolation, the artist sang the song When You Wish Upon a Star from the cartoon “Pinocchio”, and also donated $ 6 million to doctors who treat coronavirus patients.
