It’s no news that Multi-platinum, Grammy award winning singer and wife of Hip Hop mogul Jay Z, Beyonce Knowles’ loves keeping her private life hidden away from the scrutiny of eager eyes and waiting cameras, and that’s pretty understandable!

In the music world, this music diva no doubt remains unequaled, constantly dishing out hit tracks and bagging multiple awards. By 2013, Beyoncé had won a staggering number of 16 Grammys.

Today as we celebrate the mega star, we dig out some surprising fun facts about her, check them out:

  • At 7, she beat 15 and 16-year-olds in a talent show by singing John Lennon’s ‘Imagine.’
  • In addition to Queen Bey’s singing, live performing and recording accolades, Beyonce is also an accomplished writer. She wrote about her 2010 break from performing in a 2011 Essence cover story titled, ‘Eat, Pray, Love.’ The piece won her an award from the New York Association of Black Journalists.
  • There was a chance that ‘Crazy in Love,’ Beyonce’s breakout single, didn’t happen. She wasn’t too fond of the horn-based sample created by producer Rich Harrison — it seemed too old school. Luckily, Beyonce warmed up to it.
  • The Sasha Fierce alter ego was conceived while creating ‘Crazy in Love’ and popularized in 2008’s ‘I Am…Sasha Fierce.’ When it comes to Fierce, Beyonce says, “I’m not like her in real life at all.”
  • She records all of her interviews with journalists and keeps them in her archives. This way if there’s every any discrepancy when it comes to being quoted, she has all the facts at the ready.
  • Beyonce suffered a miscarriage before Blue Ivy’s birth in January 2012. She describes it as, “the saddest thing I’ve ever been through.”
  • The singer-entrepreneur has her own fragrance line, but she’s allergic to most perfumes. The fragrances she wears have to be chemically altered to make sure she doesn’t have an allergic reaction.
  • Pizza is her favorite indulgence, even though her figure suggests otherwise. Sunday is her pizza day.
  • In 2003, she had to take a stand for herself after an unreasonable request at a photo shoot. Beyonce absolutely was not having it and walked out when celebrity photographer David LaChapelle asked her to pose naked smothered in honey.
  • Jay Z and Beyonce didn’t hit things off immediately. The two spoke on the phone for a year before Hov worked up the nerve to ask her out.
  • If there’s anyone who can find flaws within perfection, it’s kids. For Beyonce, she didn’t like her ears when she was a child.
  • Mascara is her favorite makeup.

Well, there you have it, you’re many steps closer to knowing the bootylicious diva.

Happy birthday Queen Bey!
