Know more about Beyonce Knowles
Since she’s the current talk of the town, I think its also timely to state some trivias about this very successful performer:
– Destiny’s Child is the world’s best-selling female group of all time
– During her younger years, Knowles went on to win over thirty local singing and dancing competitions.
– Their group underwent several name changes—Girl’s Tyme, The Dolls, Something Fresh, and Cliché—before sticking with Destiny’s Child, based on a passage from the Book of Isaiah in the Bible. Knowles’ mother Tina had found the word “Destiny”, but since that name was already taken, they settled for Destiny’s Child
– “Crazy in Love” became the fourth best-selling single on the U.S. Billboard Year-End of 2003 and the world’s second best-selling single of 2003.
– “Work It Out” was a top ten hit in the UK and a top forty hit in the Netherlands, Australia, and Ireland, despite being Knowles’ biggest commercial disappointment to date in the U.S., where radio stations barely played the song and the video received very minor exposure, playing only on digital video channels, MTV Jams, and VH1 Soul.
– Animal rights organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have criticized Knowles for wearing and using fur in her clothing line, House of Deréon. After winning an online eBay auction, offered by VH1 for the Save the Music Foundation, to dine with Knowles in June 2006, two PETA members confronted her at a restaurant in New York City because of their disapproval of her usage of fur. Knowles did not respond, and the PETA members were escorted out. PETA also wrote a letter of concern to Knowles about the treatment of baby alligators in a photoshoot for B’Day
– She appeared in one of Walt Disney Theme Parks advertisement dressed as Alice from Alice in Wonderland.
