All the Times Beyoncé Proved She’s a Virgo Perfectionist (and a ‘Savage’)

As most astrologists will tell you, Virgos are always looking for perfection and Miss Beyoncé Knowles-Carter is no exception. She’s a diva, she’s a perfectionist, and she’s one of the most powerful musicians in the world. Here are a few of the times this “Savage” showcased her talent.

While creating ‘Spirit’ for Disney’s adaptation of ‘The Lion King’

Not only is Beyoncé an award-winning singer, but she appeared as a voice actor for Disney’s photo-real version of The Lion King. She helped create music for the film, most notably the song “Spirit.”

“She’s a perfectionist and she’s a Virgo, like my wife. Virgos are serious perfectionists,” singer-songwriter Labrinth said, according to USA Today.

“We kind of sent a rough demo over to her. She heard the song and she loved the vibe. She was like, ‘OK, I’m going to get in on it with you.’ She started helping us write the rest of the record,” Labrinth continued. “It was just like, ’This is incredible. It was just one of those moments where it was like, ‘OK, I think God’s blessing me now.’”

The song, and Beyoncé’s album inspired by the film, The Lion King: The Gift, went on to earn multiple awards and nominations. That includes the Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song and a Grammy nomination for Best Song Written for Visual Media.

For her groundbreaking Coachella performance

Although she was the star of the show, Beyoncé had a hand in creating the concept of her Coachella performance. For her Netflix documentary, Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé, the artist described what it took to create the visuals, from the size of the stage to the colors of the costumes to the dozens of musicians and dancers involved. 

The result? A musical event by the first African American woman to headline the festival with a performance honoring HBCUs. (Some even nicknamed Coachella to “Beychella” following the festival.)

On her feature for Megan Thee Stallion’s song ‘Savage’

Fans always thought Beyoncé was a savage. Now, her performance with Megan Thee Stallion on the trendy TikTok song proves it. Megan Thee Stallion featured Beyoncé on her recently-released remix, having the artist sing a new version of this already popular song. 

“The way Beyoncé flawlessly and expertly flows through different genres is unreal. She said y’all want some rap? Here take it. Opera? Have some. Pop? That’s my sh*t,” one Twitter user noted.

For her 2013 performance at the Super Bowl 

Beyoncé’s performed at the Super Bowl more than once. For one interview, however, the artist explained that she relates to the athletes and their commitment to improving.  The article states that Beyoncé has a collection of old performances on video for her to rewatch. 

“One of the reasons I connect to the Super Bowl is that I approach my shows like an athlete,” Beyoncé said, according to USA Today.

“I watch my performances, and I wish I could just enjoy them, but I see the light that was late. I see, ‘Oh God, that hair did not work.’ Or ‘I should never do that again.’ I try to perfect myself. I want to grow, and I’m always eager for new information,” she continued.

Music by Beyoncé and Blue Ivy, including “Brown Skin Girl,” is available on Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, and most major streaming platforms.
