This is what you probably already know about Beyoncé, and here are 5 interesting facts you may not know about Beyoncé:
Beyoncé Doesn’t Come Cheap
You sure wouldn’t be able to get Beyoncé to perform at your party or show if you were on a budget; and even wealthy people may not be able to afford to have Beyoncé perform at their shows. This is because Beyoncé is one of the highest paid performers in the world and she charges per minute. Beyoncé once performed at a private party for $1.25 Million, and her performance was only 5 minutes long.
She Went Through a Major Depression
Things are not always petals and roses in the world of stardom and fame, and Beyoncé knows this well as she went through a major period of depression in the 1990’s. Beyoncé became depressed after issues arose within her girl group, ‘Destiny’s Child’, and spent most of her time indoors and failed to eat. She also sued her father during this period for incorrectly managing her girl group, and she felt very confused and lonely after some of the members left the girl group.
Beyoncé Loves to Tour
One of Beyoncé’s favorite things about being a performer is that she gets the opportunity to tour the world. She loves to tour because it means that she has the whole day off before the show in order to explore and do as she pleases. Beyoncé enjoys using this time to explore the different cities and countries.
Beyoncé is apparently very untidy and usually does not keep a neat and tidy space. Kelly Rowland, another member from ‘Destiny’s Child’, says that Beyoncé is a ‘slob’ who has a lot on her mind.
Beyoncé Net Worth
Beyoncé has a net worth of around $450 Million.
