Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Alternative Character Interpretation: Because of her Determinator status and her very tight control of her public image, there's a running joke that she's a massive control freak who keeps Kelly, Michelle, and even Solange locked in her basement to keep any of them from stealing her thunder.
Double Standard: Beyoncé is often criticized especially on this very wiki for "If I Were A Boy" being misandristic. Unfortunately many other artists especially male artists are less often criticized for misogynistic lyrics which are far more common.
Ear Worm: Many of her songs, though special mentions go to "Crazy in Love" and "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)." Most recently, "***Flawless" and "Drunk in Love".
She's often blamed for the dissolution of Destiny's Child and the expulsion of two of its members beforehand. Exactly how much of that was on her, on the other girls and on the management will probably never be known.
Signature Song: "Crazy in Love" and "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" are probably the main contenders in a career with several big hits.
