About Beyoncé

In the 2000s, no pop star was as poised, as polished, or as generally fierce as Beyoncé. She scored early success with Destiny’s Child, who started out as a sexier and sassier (if less adult) version of TLC, then steadily became more and more of a vehicle for Beyoncé’s operatic vocals and general diva-tude — which may have been the plan all along.

Whether appearing in TV spots, co-starring in films like Dream Girls, or marrying Jay Z, Beyoncé was omnipresent in the 2000s. And though her female-empowerment anthems didn’t seem to offer much for women who lacked her superpowers to relate to, almost everybody loved shiny, hip-hop-fueled hits like Crazy in Love (Put It In Yo Mouth Remix), and Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) anyway.
