Beyoncé Height

"I was thinkin if I cheated on my fears, broke up with my doubts, got engaged to my faith. I can marry my dreams."

~ Beyoncé

American singer Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter or simply Beyoncé is one of the most influential, popular, and best-selling music artists of all time -- and that's why she was included on the Time's list of 100 women who defined the last century. That's some achievement.

About Beyoncé's Real Height

The height of a person may seem a simple matter to you, and perhaps it is -- but that is not so in Beyoncé's case. Actually, there is a lot of disagreement about just how tall Beyoncé really is. 

There are some people who think that Beyoncé is at least 5'8" -- as tall as Rihanna, and then there are people who think that she isn't any taller than 5'5". Google lists her (at the moment) at 5'7" (170 cm), which seems closer to reality yet leaves something to be desired.

That's why we decided to take the matter into our hands. We investigated Beyoncé's height -- which means that we sifted through hundreds of photos and videos of this amazing singer to compare her to celebrities with established heights, like Rihanna who is 5'8" or Nicki Minaj who is 5'2".

After these height comparisons, we think we have a pretty good idea of just how tall Beyoncé is.

The real height of Beyoncé is

5'6" or 168 cm

"Whenever I feel bad, I use that feeling to motivate me to work harder. I only allow myself one day to feel sorry for myself. When I'm not feeling my best I ask myself, 'What are you gonna do about it?' I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me."
