Beyoncé is a force of nature.

To admirers, she is on a different level from any other singer in the industry today.

She changed the music game last year by dropping a self-titled album as a complete surprise – the album was so secret, one of its producers only knew of its release 90 minutes before it dropped – and her aspiration in life, she said in the album, is to just be happy.

She's married to rapper, record producer, entrepreneur and mogul Jay Z – who was worth about $520 million in 2014, according to Forbes. And their child, Blue Ivy Carter, stole the show at the VMAs this year with the simple words, "Yeah, Mommy." Not to mention that highly publicized tour she's recently headlined with her hubby.

Today is her birthday, so raise a glass. Here are 33 flawless moments of Beyoncé.

1. She has a golden beehive, and it is fierce.
