Trivia[Edit]Edit

  • In October 2006, singer Jennifer Armour filed a lawsuit against Knowles because of plagiarism on the song "Baby Boy" from 2003 that Knowles sang with Sean Paul. According to Armour came some of the text in line with her own number Got a little bit of love for you. A year later, October 2007, Knowles was acquitted, but was this Armour in appeal. The Court ruled a month later that there is no reasonable person having heard the two songs would conclude that they match. [3]
  • Knowles has the song "Honesty" by Billy Joel covered for the album "Love Destiny", this album was released in Japan at the end of June 2008 in honor of the tenth anniversary of destiny's Child.
  • In January 2012, it was announced that the horses fly Scaptia (Plinthina) beyonceae to Beyoncé is named. Bryan Lessard of the Australian research firm CSIRO gave the airline the name because of the striking bottom of the fly. "It was the unique thick golden hair on the back of the fly leaving me on the name came" – thus Bryan Lessard. [4[5]
  • In april 2011 brought Knowles along with Swizz Beatz an edit on her song Get Me Bodied , titled Let's Move Your Body, with the goal to move people more.
