Beyonce is one of the world’s most popular singers, period. But you may not have known that looking at baby Beyonce. There’s a bit of a double chin there, baby. Beyonce, like many of the other stars on this list, managed to transcend her awkward baby years. And let’s be honest. Has there ever been a baby that didn’t look like a frog or an alien? Beyonce is now one of the world’s most beautiful women. The puberty fairy probably cut her a good deal. She could probably still wail back then though, although she wasn’t winning Grammys until later on.

Beyonce began headlining tabloids and the Billboards when she sung with Destiny’s Child. Now performing solo, Beyonce is one of the world’s best selling musicians and one of America’s most powerful and influential women. It doesn’t hurt that the woman knows how to tour.
