Young Beyonce picture

Tumblr/Beyonce

Beyonce has always been proud to call herself a pop diva, and so we were not surprised when the singer recently revealed a picture of her younger self looking oh-so-glamorous and stage ready.

The retro photo, posted to her Tumblr site, shows a young Beyonce dressed in a gold metallic turban and one-shouldered wraparound dress with large statement earrings and what looks like a competition sash just out of sight.

The somewhat regal look harks at her future career on the stage, showing that Queen Bey's always been a winning performer at heart - and we can't help but wonder just what the prize sash was awarded for.

The Grown Woman singer also shared more up-to-date fun photos of herself goofing around with her 'super' friends in a department store, donning a fierce Batman mask before posing with her husband Jay Z's newest album Holy Grail, as well as BFF Kelly Rowland's latest release, Talk a Good Game - styling it up with wild leopard nails and cut-out lattice effect sunglasses.
