There are only a handful of divas with the sort of star power that lets them go by one name only like Madonna, Oprah and Beyonce. The latter diva knows how to make headlines and attract red carpet attention, whether it’s through stellar on-stage performances, sizzling cyberpunk fashion or sparking a bit of controversy.
Beyonce doesn’t have a squeaky clean image per se, but it’s as close as can be. When TMZ posted side-by-side pictures of a Feria ad Beyonce did for L’Oreal, the cosmetics giant was accused of lightening Beyonce’s skin. And Beyonce’s clothing line for children, House of Dereon, was criticized after promotional pictures of the line depicted overly made-up child models in high heels striking some very adult poses.
Despite these minor setbacks, Beyonce’s star power is impossible to deny. Whether she’s wearing Alexander McQueen or Gareth Pugh, Beyonce’s style is always apparent. And this morning, Beyonce's making headlines for her upcoming appearance on The X Factor--a performance that's rumored to yield her £300,000, making it the highest-paid single television performance in UK history.
