Beyoncé

Beyoncé was groomed by her father, Matthew Knowles, and he put together one of the greatest girl groups of all time in Destiny’s Child. But as the superstar’s relationship with her father became strained (rumored to be because of his having cheated on her mother), she decided to strike out on her own. Her husband Jay-Z heads one of the most successful management companies in music, Roc Nation, so it’s safe to say that she won’t likely make any major career missteps.
