Destiny’s Child, Bug a boo
Beyonce Knowles – pronounced “beee-yon-say noles” – is just 28 today, and yet it seems like she’s be around for ever. There was that time she was in the girlband Destiny’s Child with her school friends, then she became an actress, then she did the song with Jay-Z – who’s her lover, by the way – and most recently she did that track about how cool it is being single… unless someone decides that they might want to marry you. It was a rather muddled song that one. Anyway, we decided to buy her a gift, so we all put a ring on it and sat in a jacuzzi singing ideas to one another, before it boiled down to a toss up between some moleskin note pads where she could jot down feminist slogans, or a clip of her old group performing their greatest record. In the end we got her both. Happy Birthday Beyonce!
