Oh, did you need more proof to convince you of Beyoncé's preternatural talent, unparalleled beauty and general grace? We didn't think so. But for naysayers and unabashed fans alike, here are four more.
The POTUS likes her
Officials announced on Wednesday that Obama personally picked Beyoncé to sing the national anthem at his inauguration ceremony on Jan. 21. Other acts include James Taylor, who will perform "America the Beautiful," and Kelly Clarkson, who will sing "My Country 'Tis of Thee."
Postpartum what? Her abs look as flat as ever
Following an Instagram leak, GQ released an official sneak peek of its February issue, set to hit stands on Jan. 22. And damn. While we know there's more than a little retouching behind this cover photo, Queen B is smoking hot. Who'd ever know that she gave birth to Blue Ivy just a year ago?
GQ says to expect more images from the shoot with Beyoncé — one of the magazine's 100 Sexiest Women of the 21st Century — on Jan. 15.
She's a "true lady"
Designer Rubin Singer dressed Beyoncé for a New Years Eve concert and later divulged to Glamour that the Houston-born pop star and her sister, Solange, are "the only celebrities that always dry clean and send clothes back in a box, with a hand-written thank you note. They are true ladies."
She plays well with others
After years of hiatus, Destiny's Child announced on Thursday that the group's first original recording in nearly a decade, "Nuclear," will be released as part of a Love Songs compilation — "[c]omprised mainly of romantic gems recorded between 1997 and 2004" — on Jan. 29.
Matthew Knowles, Beyoncé's dad and the girl group's manager, hinted at a reunion tour within the next five years. We're crossing our fingers that Bey will be reunited with Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams on stage soon.
