Not only does Queen Bey 'Run The World' (sorry), but she's also influenced LOADS of her pop star colleagues. Bow down, you lot...
The band revealed that their Salute tour was inspired by Yonce, saying: "Beyonce's tour is incredible, she's in a class of her own." The girls are totally smashing it with their feisty performances and music videos so something's clearly working!
Sam was caught on camera singing 'Drunk In Love' in the shower (we've all been there babes), and he even credited Queen Bey with helping him to lose weight too. Proof Yonce is just as good #BodyGoals as she is #CareerGoals for the stars. Picture: PA
Ariana explained that while she was making her album she was "trying to channel super-confident women like Mariah Carey and Beyonce". Quite the compliment!
They may have been around for a similar amount of time and both be queens of the music industry but even Britney looks up to Beyonce. She told USA Today, "What she did with her [surprise release] album was genius, really brilliant."
Adele shared a VERY cute story about her first meeting with Beyonce, saying she had a "full-blown panic attack" beforehand (who could blame her?!) but then Bey came in made her feel super special, telling her: "You’re amazing! When I listen to you I feel like I’m listening to God." SO CUTE.
Celebrities TOTALLY fangirl over their idols too - Jessie J once described shaking while meeting Beyonce and said, "I hope in 10 years' time I can be anywhere near where she is - I just feel like if she can do it I can do it. That's a nice thing to have, you know, everyone needs someone to look up to." Picture: Getty
Chezza's comeback track 'Crazy Stupid Love' had some serious booty-shaking involved, and we can't help but think Bey influenced those seriously sexy moves... Picture: Simon Wisbey
It's got to be pretty damn amazing when you meet your lifelong idol… and they're a fan of you too! This ACTUALLY happened to Meghan who revealed, :My Beyoncé moment felt like a movie. I was at the Billboard Women in Music [event], and she came up to me and said, 'My daughter and I watch your music videos all the time.' My life was complete!" Picture : PA
Considering Yonce is such a style icon, it's hardly surprising Selena Gomez seemed to be channeling her inner Bey in this very similar tour outfit! Picture: Splash
Nicki is one of the lucky few that gets to be mates AND collaborate with Beyonce, but she still admits that she is inspired by Mrs Carter and how she juggles motherhood with being a fierce performer. Nicki explained, "Seeing Beyonce with her daughter and her husband was so tender, and it showed me that it is possible to be an animal on stage and a caring mother at the same time."
Before she and Beyonce became musical BFFs, Mother Monster revealed she was watching a Destiny's Child video once and told her grandmother, "She’s a star. I want that." See? Dreams totally do come true.
She's managed by Mr Carter himself, and Rita looks up to Jay Z's Mrs just as much as the next star. She said, "Beyonce was, and still is, such an inspiration. She's been in the game for so long. The first time I met her I was so nervous. I hugged her and told her she was my inspiration. She's a superwoman with a career and a family. I hope one day I can do the same - baby in one arm, microphone in the other." Picture: instagram
Iggy once admitted that she loves Bey's tour style so much, she's been 'biting' bits of it for herself. Seriously, can you even blame her?!
Lily dressed up as Queen Bey (circa her Drunk In Love music video) for a performance at G-A-Y, blonde wig and all, and we think Beyonce would be PROUD of those moves of hers!
Azealia gushed about Beyonce in an interview with Beats TV once, telling them: "She’s so well-mannered and so classy and so well-poised. It’s important to have those kinds of skills.” So it's official... EVERYONE LOVES QUEEN BEY. END OF.
