All hail to the Queen! Beyonce is celebrating turning 35 on Sept. 4 and we’ve got a look back at all the highlights the superstar has had in the last year. From the VMAs, the Super Bowl, ‘Lemonade’ and more, this was Bey’s most impactful year ever on pop culture and we’ve got all the pics!
Beyonce, 35, capped off her last days as a 34-year-old by giving the most epic VMAs performance EVER, doing a medley of songs off her hit album Lemonade in an incredible 16 minute mini-concert Aug. 28. From costume changes, set changes, high energy dance numbers and literally lighting the stage on fire, she proved why she’s the most important entertainer of our time. Even her trip down the red carpet was a memorable one, as she looked fierce in a seafoam green sheer gown with amazing feather embellishments at her neck. She even brought along her mini-me Blue Ivy, four, for the cutest mother-daughter date.
Her VMA’s appearance wasn’t the only iconic performance of the year, as she used her “special guest” spot with Coldplay at the Super Bowl 50 Halftime to completely steal the show! She did a stealth drop her new song and video for “Formation” on the eve of the big event, and went on to give a full-on live performance of the racial and female empowering anthem. Seriously, who can drop a new song then give a surprise performance of it the next day at the most-viewed TV event of the year? No one else but Beyonce!
She did the same shock and awe with her visual album Lemonade, and she launched one of the biggest guessing games of the year with her lyrics about “Becky with the good hair,” making the world wonder if she was implying hat hubby Jay Z, 45, had cheated on her. This woman sang one ambiguous line and had us all playing guessing games about the identity “Becky” for weeks!
