Beyonce-620×480

BEYONCÉ  Since her early days as frontwoman in Destiny’s Child—one of the best-selling female groups of all time—Beyoncé has positioned herself as a musical dynamo with several platinum plaques to show for it. As she readies her fourth solo album 4 for the summer, Beyoncé continues to diversify. Her House of Deréon clothing line with her mother, Tina Knowles, added a junior line called Deréon. She moved into beauty with her fragrance Heat, as well as being a spokeswoman for L’Oreal and Revlon. While music is still Queen Bey’s bread and butter, her acting career is on the rise, most notably her starring role in Dreamgirls and her role as Etta James in the film Cadillac Records. Named one of Forbes’ Top Earning Black Celebrities, Beyoncé has a net worth of $300 million.
