Beyonce's Best Moments of 2013

Beyonce

They don't call her Queen Bey for nothing. Beyonce has had one hell of a year. We are counting down her top moments of this year to show you why this Vixen favorite stays at the top—and still manages to look fly while doing it. Mrs. Carter has us all bowing down. Here's hoping her success, creativity and energy continues in 2014!

The Mrs. Carter World Tour

Proving she's a force that can't be reckoned with, Beyonce put any and all haters to shame. Putting her single status on the shelf, Mrs. Carter added some surprise performances from her hubby showing that family comes first and distance never keeps this power couple apart. Singing live all the while dancing her bootylicious butt off, Beyonce kept energy throughout and proved she's super human by never missing a beat (or step).

Skydiving

Showing that she's fun and fearless, Beyonce went to new heights—literally. Queen Bee jumped off the tallest man-made structure in New Zealand. And if that wasn't enough, she screamed "this is awesome" mid-air. Can you imagine what you would look like jumping off a building? Certainly not this gracious! It's only a matter of time before she flies without the harness.

Not only is she talented but she's humble, too. Beygood accepted donations through each of her tour stops for those less fortunate. As much as she has received, Beyonce makes it a point to give back. We gotta give it to Mrs. Carter, she's a definite class act.

Superbowl Halftime Show

Giving the performance of a lifetime, Beyonce showed that she's a one-woman show and can do it all herself if need be(y). She stole the show so much that there were rumors circulating that the lights shut off mid-game due to her performance. Do you even remember who was playing in that game?! We sure as hell don't.

Beyoncé, Rihanna, And J. Lo Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Women In Music List

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
