34 Beyoncé Quotes To Live By

Melody

Fri, September, 4 by

Today, we celebrate the holiest of days: Beyoncé’s birthday. It’s not an official holiday yet, but you sure can try to skip school or work.

Queen Bey turns 34 today and, to celebrate, we wanted to take a look back at the many amazing things Bey has said in the past, whether it’s from a powerful song or a rare interview.

Beyoncé is not only one of the biggest pop stars in the world, but she is also the goddess of empowerment, a badass feminist and a person whose words we should live by sometimes. Don’t be surprised if some of these quotes can be found on various pillows, mugs or t-shirts on Etsy already…just don’t tell Bey.

Here are 34 Beyoncé quotes to live by. Happy birthday, Bey!
