By Frank Donovan

To celebrate Women’s History Month, we’re taking a look back at decades of all-female musical groups. Through pop, punk, rap, rock, and everything in between, we go all the way to the 1940s when The Andrews Sisters harmonized for the troops during World War II, to the 1960s when bee-hived singers helped shape the sounds of Phil Spector and Motown, to the 1990s when Destiny’s Child mobilized fellow women to demand respect and Sleater-Kinney put feminism at the fore, ushering in the riot grrrl-inspired Pussy Riot.

The book will not feature any quotes from ‘Yonce, but will rely on secondary sources, which is code for “shady heauxes.” I am not a shady heaux, but I do have the inside scoop on Queen Bey! So without further ado, here are 10 not at all made up for comedic effect completely factual things that Beyoncé doesn’t want mentioned in her unauthorized biography.

The concept of Beyonce is terrifying, never mind the woman. A powerhouse of fierceness, Beyonce has talent and intellect, and has managed to create an iconography for herself in a relatively short career that many struggle to achieve.

So it’s settled — there is literally nothing Beyonce can’t do.
