Beyonce has made many songs and albums, starred in many movies, and won many awards for most of them--and she's still going strong!! Plus she has her own clothing line with her mom! Beyonce doesn't care for comments about her to be discussed. She knows who she is and that no one can stop her from doing what she does best.
''One of the things that kept me out of trouble was doing something creative - creativity can`t be judged.''
