Happy Birthday to Queen Bey who turns 36 today!

Born in Houston, Texas, this Southern sweetheart began showing promise no sooner than she could sing, and by the age of eight was already in a band called Girl Tyme (which would go on to become Destiny’s Child).

Over 160 million records and 22 Grammys later, Beyoncé definitely ‘runs the world’, and will doubtless be celebrating in impeccable style with husband Jay-Z and children Blue Ivy, five, and twins Rumi and Sir, who were born in June.
