Upon accepting the award she said: “I’m trying not to be too emotional, I’m trying to just receive this night."

She thanked her husband Jay-Z, their children, God and her uncle Jonny, who introduced her to dance music, saying he “is not here but he is here in spirit”.

Beyonce's net worth

Forbes estimated Beyonce's net worth to be around $450 million (US Dollars) in 2022. 

Multiple sources, now have her net worth at around $500 million US dollars - as of March 2023. 

This equates to around to just over £4 million. 

The money will continue to flow in 2023 for Beyonce with Forbes predicting her Renaissance World Tour could earn her nearly US$2.1 billion (over £1.6bn). 

In comparison, this is roughly US$500 million (£402m) more than the US$1.6 billion (£1.2bn) Taylor Swift could earn from her Eras Tour.
