Are you ready? This fall, Grand Central Publishing will release a 464 page biography on Mrs Carter called Becoming Beyoncé: The Untold Story. Written by New York Times best-selling author J. Randy Taraborrelli -- whose penned 18 biographies about luminaries such as Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and Madonna -- Becoming Beyonce is billed as the first-ever in-depth biography of Mrs Carter. The book will hit book stores (if they're still around) and e-readers October 27, 2015.
Beyoncé Knowles is a woman who began her career at the age of eight performing in pageant shows and talent contests, honing her craft through her teenage years until, at the age of 16, she had her first number one record with Destiny's Child. That hit-making trio launched Beyoncé's successful solo career, catapulting her, as of 2014, to #1 on Forbes annual list of most wealthy celebrities--the same year she made the cover of Time. BECOMING BEYONCÉ is not only the story of struggle, sacrifice, and what it takes to make it in the cut-throat record industry, it's the story of the great rewards of such success and the devastating toll it often takes on the human spirit.
