Everyone wants a piece of Beyonce. She’s the ultimate desirable pop icon today, and is able to, with a single Instagram post and caption “Surprise!”, release the fastest-selling album to ever hit iTunes without any pre-release promotion.  

With a following in the millions, Buzzfeed quizzes dedicated to extracting her every desirable quality, and even a university course named on her behalf (Politicizing Beyoncé), Beyonce is a cultural icon who has built a career that harnesses the true essence of celebrity desirability.
