The Power of Beyonce


As the saying goes, 'You can't keep a good woman down.'

As the saying goes, 'You can't keep a good woman down,' and Beyonce has proven this to be true again and again.

Bey's career has survived Photoshop scandals, cheating rumors, elevator brawls and more but somehow she manages to emerge from controversy bigger and better every time, so what's her secret?

"She is known for not commenting on her personal life and not giving in to the chatter," said ETonline senior editor Sophie Schillaci.

Then there are her rabid fans -- the BeyHive -- that is quick to come to her defense on social media. Their fierce protectiveness was hilariously skewered on Saturday Night Live in a digital short called The Beygency.

Recent rumors have suggested that Beyonce and husband Jay Z may be living separate lives on their On the Run tour, which ends on September 13 in Paris.
