“I got every reason to feel like I’m that bitch.” And you’re right. It can’t be denied that Beyonce is the hottest artist today. Jay-Z said it best, “I got the hottest chick in the game wearin’chain.” And with his wife bringing home $87 million last year alone, can you blame him?

While holding endorsements with Pepsi, Tommy Hilfiger, Armani and L’Oreal, Beyoncé has managed to keep herself number one in the music industry. Releasing platinum albums isn’t a dream for Beyoncé. Her debut album Dangerously In Love was 4x platinum and received five Grammys. Bday, Beyoncé’s sophomore album went 3x platinum. Revealing her alter ego, or the person she is on stage, brought her latest album, I Am… Sasha Fierce. Songs from this album are in circulation on radios today. She has had five number one singles in the U.S. including the fan favorite “Single Ladies.” Youtube blew up with videos of people imitating the dance from this video.

Awards from this year alone are sure to be adorning the shelves in Ms. Knowles’s home. So this year Beyoncé has received the 2009 NAACP Image Award as “Outstanding Female Artist”, “Best R&B Artist” at the Teen Choice Awards, “Best Female Video” at MTV’s Video Music Awards, and Billboard magazine’s “Woman of the Year” award. Beyoncé was also able to sing for Barack and Michelle Obama for their first dance as the President and First Lady at the Inaugural Ball. Forbes held her at #4 in their list of the “100 Most Powerful & Influential Celebrities”.

Beyoncé dabbled in the acting game a few times with Carmen: A Hip Hopera, The Fighting Temptations, Austin Powers in Goldmember, and Pink Panther. While her skills were criticized by all, Beyoncé showed that she truly could play the part (anything is better than Carmen: A Hip Hopera) when she took on roles in Dreamgirls, Obsessed, and Cadillac Records. Ms. Knowles was nominated for two Golden Globes for her role in Dreamgirls.

While truly showing her acting skills in Cadillac Records, where she played Etta James, Beyoncé donated her entire salary from the movie to the Phoenix House, a rehabilitation organization. Along with former group-mate Kelly Rowland, Beyoncé started the Survivor Foundation, an organization that helped assist Hurricane Katrina victims in their hometown of Houston, Texas. Recently Beyoncé helped out with Show Your Helping Hand to aid hunger relief.

Not one to really be seen in celebrity party scene, Beyoncé has shown how a woman with class handles herself. According to the “Irreplaceable” songstress, “I like to dress sexy and I carry myself like a lady.” She really carried herself after videos of her falling down a set of stairs at one of her concerts. This classines may have been what caught rapper Jay-Z’s eye. Since 2002 our modern day Bonnie & Clyde have been riding together. Keeping their relationships under wraps was a way of life for these two (like everyone didn’t already know). Either way Beyoncé and Jay-Z decided to tie-the-knot on April 4 of 2008. Now the only thing on our minds is will there be little Hovs or Sashas running around?
