Beyonce Knowles is artist of the millennium according to Billboard.
The 29 year old super diva is preparing for her highly anticipated album release and will be honored with Billboard’s Millennium Award during the annual Billboard Music Awards.
How many Beyonce’ video teasers are required these days before a full length video is released? [How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?]
I ask all the important questions…
Apparently the answer is “4,” which is also the new title of Beyonce’s upcoming CD that features her new hit single, “Run The World (Girls).
Beyonce explained her special connection the number, stating:
We all have special numbers in our lives, and four is that for me.
It’s the day I was born. My mother’s birthday, and a lot of my friends’ birthdays, are on the fourth; April 4 is my wedding date.

Beyonce on “Run the World (Girls)” criticism:
It’s definitely riskier than something a bit more…simple. I just heard the track and loved that it was so different: it felt a bit African, a bit electronic and futuristic.
It reminded me of what I love, which is mixing different cultures and eras — things that typically don’t go together — to create a new sound. I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain.
As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal. That’s how I’ve gotten to where I am.
Alright then Bey!
The album promises to be her most experimental record so far and is due to hit shelves sometime this summer.
