Here's How Tall Beyonce Really Is

It's safe to say that Beyoncé Knowles-Carter has been on top of the world for years, and that's not even an allusion to how tall she is. The insanely-popular, widely-adored singer has been in our consciousness since her days in Destiny's Child.

From that time to her pivot to a solo career, Beyoncé just continues to grow in stature, per Artnet News. She has broken record sales and set the bar higher, according to iHeart. Even her performances are a joy to behold and some have even reached iconic status (via Entertainment Tonight). Beyoncé was also named the most beautiful woman in the world by People in 2012, and she's got one of the most loyal fanbases in the world — the BeyHive, according to The Ringer

Add all that to that the fact that the 40-year-old married Jay-Z, one of the greatest rappers alive, and you get an idea why Beyoncé's star power feels even more potent with the passage of time. Since Beyoncé remains an iconic figure, it's no surprise that people would ask questions, wanting to know more about Beyoncé's private life and things other than her music. That brings us back to one popular question: How tall is Beyoncé?

Beyoncé's real height can be a bit confusing

If your previous online search for Beyoncé's height has turned up more questions than answers, you are in great company as there seems to be a debate on the real height of the mega music star. At some point, Bey's height was said to be 5 feet 3 inches, according to Footwear Heights. Many websites, like, have attributed that piece of information to an old Ebony Magazine interview that's now not available on the internet.

However, according to Footwear Heights, the singer's height is said to officially be listed as 5 feet 7 inches. The singer confirmed this height in a video interview with Sky One's Richard Blackwood, where she states she is 5 feet 7 inches (via YouTube). The interview from back in the day when she was still a part of Destiny's Child.

She also added during that interview that she grows to 5 feet 10 inches when she wears high heels. These days, the singer can hardly be seen without an elevated pair of shoes which explains why Beyoncé looks so tall most of the time, so much so that there isn't much difference when she stands beside her husband, Jay-Z, who stands at an impressive 6 feet 2 inches, per The Sun.
