Beyonce Knowles is a megastar in the music and entertainment industry. She has sold tens of millions of albums, won over a dozen Grammy awards, and has earned over a hundred million dollars. Beginning her career as the lead singer for Destiny’s Child and then going to top the charts as a solo artist, she has earned the nickname Queen. Beyonce has been called B or Bey as a nickname for a while as well. Not only does her name begin with the letter B but it’s also the first pronunciation of her name. Family, friends, fans, and associates have referred to her as B as an informal name for years.
Combining the two names would only be natural to crown Beyonce with the nickname of Queen B. The usage also refers to a fascination she has with bees and considering herself similar to a queen bee. The B in the nickname shouldn’t be confused with the derogatory word as that nickname has been used by Lil Kim. Beyonce often distinguishes the meaning of hers with the spelling as “Queen Bey”. She even dresses as a queen in many stage costumes and props on her recent Mrs. Carter World Tour to further manifest her nickname.
