Where You've Seen Her: Virtually everywhere (haven't you heard, dude? It's the year of Beyonce!). Whether you know her as the ultra-sexy wife of rapper Jay-Z, one third of the girl group Destiny's Child, or the actress who isn't afraid to get scrappy, you can't deny she's pretty much the hottest thing happening in modern music (and most of the world). Now that the inauguration lyp-syncing drama has died down, get ready to watch her shake up the Super Bowl halftime show this Sunday in New Orleans.
