She's always the same height as kelly. If latavia is 5 even Bey is 5'6"
Amanda love said on 18/Mar/17
I don't understand why yall dont wanna believe this lady is above average height. Latavia is not 5 feet. Look at DC live performances and videos from 1999 and before. She towers over both latavia and farrah who are both 5'3". Bey almost looks the same height as Kelly, Latoya and a couple inches shorter that michelle. She is 5'6". Move on!

You guys there is a picture of 5"8 T.i and Beyoncé with heels on. She is not taller than T.i with HEELS ON! That is impossible with someone who is 5"6-5"7. A women that tall can dwarf a man 5"8 with heels, and if she was 5"5 she would be head to head with T.i with heels on. She is still MUCH shorter than 5"8 T.i with heels on. Beyoncé needs a down grade to her real height 5"3.

i dont think she's 5'6. closer to 5'5, maybe 5'5 1/2. Sometiems she looks tall, other times, not.
Yuppy said on 5/Feb/17
Thank you Mary!!!! Ebony magazine has no reason to lie and who doesn't want to spill the real tea on Beyoncé. It's not a typo either Because they said a "Petite" 5"3 inches tall! Most female Musical talents are short! I understand why Beyoncé is lying about her height now, just look at how many people prefer her to be taller! She is only 5"3
Realist said on 2/Feb/17
Some people never equate that those heels never give women under 3 inches. With that said she is 5'7 in heels means she's 5'4 max. Guys we never wear heels. In decent shoes I am 5'10.5 and those shoes give me like 1 inch.
Mary said on 1/Feb/17
5'6 for her is a joke! A lot of people who have seen her confirm she is not over 5'3. And it's obvious in the pictures and videos. Just look at her last photo in instagram (the pregnancy one)! Arms and thighs of a 5'6 woman are not this short. And for the ones who say ebony magazine is wrong, what is their motivation for lying? Beyonce really needs a downgrade.
Sandy Cowell said on 30/Jan/17
Next to David Beckham, 5ft11, and wearing heels, I cannot see Beyonce being all of 5ft6! If she took those shoes off, she'd most probably be 5ft4. I'm sticking with that! 👠👠
Johnson said on 29/Jan/17
Rihanna 5'8 is a joke. Beyonce 168. Rihanna 171-172
Nik said on 27/Jan/17
Another puzzling one for me. There is no way she is 5'6" based on the photograph above however having seen pictures of her elsewhere on the Internet a strong 5'6.5" looks possible.
Peter 179cm said on 27/Jan/17
If Beckham is 5'11 Beyonce looks about 5'6 with heel advantage,at least an inch more.I think she's a weak 5'5 164cm although 163 isn't improbable.
Yuppy said on 27/Jan/17
I agree with realist
Rihanna is legit 5"8 she is way taller than Beyoncé! Beyoncé stays in platform heels even on days off. Besides multiple people on this site has seen her and know people who works with her and they all say 5"3! I seen her last year in Dallas in May and I was astonished at how little she was. She has thick legs (far from big legs!) for her little size but the legs were very short and her torso is very short. Remember her Grammys dress in 2013/14 the white floral one the designer stated that she was tinier than the small mannequin he designed it on. It had to be custom made for her. Beyoncé is a little women she is 5"3 I don't know why that's so hard to believe.
Mila said on 22/Jan/17
She's not as minor as Rihanna or she's 5'7 '' or Rihanna's not 5'8 '' is a small difference, Rihanna is not as tall as she.
Mila said on 22/Jan/17
She's pretty close to 5'7 '' she has legs that fit her for that height. Seems to be bigger sometimes, I think 5'6.5 '' or even 5'7 '' is perfect for her.
Realist said on 17/Jan/17
5"4 for her is a legit guess because if she really 5'6 she would be 5'9 and assuming David Beckham would be 6'0.5 in good sized shoes she would be right at his eye level but she's not even close. Those people gave her 5'3 with tape measure I am 5'9.3 and people have given me 5'6 to 5'11. Being thin/famous people usually don't get there height measured.
Yuppy said on 15/Jan/17
Sorry guys she is 5"3 in real life. Kim k is not 5"2 she is 5"0 and kourtney is 4"10-4"11 Beyoncé and Prince wear BOTH wearing heels together and we're both the same height!
Mr. Centimeter said on 14/Jan/17
Next to Beckham she looks 5'4,1 - 5'4,5.
Dom said on 10/Jan/17
Looks 5'6,5 or 5'7' next to every celeb.
Caela said on 9/Jan/17
She's the same height pretty much to Rihanna when they both have heels. She towers over Kim K and we all know Kim lives in heels. Her mom and her sister are taller. She was a lot taller than Prince and Prince himself is 5'2 and he wears heels. So she's 5'6 or 5'7.
Caela said on 9/Jan/17
She is on 5'7 or 5'6....look at her next to Rihanna when they both have on heels. They are level or an inch apart. There is not a significant height difference between her and Kelly. Or her next to Kim K, everyone knows Kim lives in heels. Beyoncé is a lot taller than her and Kim is about 5'2. Also the Prince height comparison, prince wore heels himself.

Ebony magazine told the truth! Beyonce is a petite 5"3

what you think about it rob ?

legit or fake if so i hope is legit so you sould downgrate other people
chris said on 19/Dec/16
no way she's 5'6 she's 5'5 max. I'd say she's around 5'4.5
Yuppy said on 23/Nov/16
Ebony magazine not only stated she was 5"3 but also said she was PETITE. Keep in mind petite is 5"3 and under. Ebony magazine styled Beyonce and took her measurements. They didn't have to ask her they measured her themselves. Most likely she would have lied about her height. But doing it themselves you can't fight the truth.
ArthurJohn said on 18/Nov/16
I find it odd that Ebony magazine described Beyonce at just 5'3". Where did they get that figure from? I do wonder if Beyonce gave that number herself.

I think 5'5" is definitely possible for her after reading through some comments below, but I think anything under 5'4" as an estimate for her is unlikely. It is very hard to tell since she often wears very high heels, so her height could be all over the place, but after doing a bit of research I'd say 5'5" on the dot is possible (maybe she's closer to 5'6" in the morning?).
Realist said on 8/Nov/16
I am 5'9 and 3/8ths people say I am 5'6 and some say 5'10 but it's because I am not skinny. In America people who are thin can lie about height. Beyoncé is 5'4 and 130 j.lo is 5'3 120 on this pic and david beckham is 5'11 170-175 lbs. Overexaggerating height is common.
Yuppy said on 31/Oct/16
Lmao Michelle is extremely taller than Beyoncé! Lmao Michelle is 5"8 1/2 I think you mean Latavia who is only 5"0 in reality. Kelly is 5"7 and letoya luckett is 5"8-5"9. Beyoncé is only 5"3
Rojina said on 22/Oct/16
People commenting on her height here must be mad. Before the big hair and massive heels in her Destiny child days she clearly hovered over bandmate Michelle who must have been 5"2 or 5"3 at the most
Jinjo said on 13/Oct/16
I used to think she was 5'7"

YUPPY said on 19/Sep/16
Google is wrong. Beyonce is very short and small. She has never seen 5"7 or 5"6! In her life. Solange is listed as taller than Beyonce but in EVERY picture beyonce is taller...so if Google was actually right solange would be listed shorter! Beyonce wears tall PLATFORM HEELS. So Google means nothing (but solange is taller than beyonce in person) Kendrick Lamar is taller than beyonce as well. You thought she was taller because the braids on her head are vertical instead of horizontal making her appear taller than him but she isn't ON TOP OF THAT Kendrick is hunched over and bends down to her. Kendrick is 5"4 and beyonce is 5"3! Ebony magazine is a highly recognized magazine! And it's EXTREMELY DOUBTFUL THAT THEY WOULD LIE! They have absolutely no reason to lie! beyonce has every reason to lie! She has fans of big women who think she is over 150 pounds, when beyonce herself said she is 130 pounds. 130 pounds on 5"5 to 5"7 will look very skinny! Where beyonce looks very healthy with nice thick thighs and butt. She is also only a size 2! Michael Costello designed her dress and told everyone that she is TINY! Look at beyonce with prince! They are eye to eye and prince is 5"2! This will be simply impossible with someone 5"5-5"7 with heels. Beyonce is 5"3 esquire magazine stated that in 2013 and ebony stated 5"3 that in 2009! I was in the Beyhive pits at her show and me and a group of other people were super shocked that she was short! Listen to "bow down" she says "don't think I'm just his LITTLE WIFE!" She meant exactly that!
Michael said on 18/Sep/16
Well first of all, when she was on stage with Kendrick Lamar, he was wearing shoes and she was barefoot and she still had an inch on 5'4 Kendrick. Second that's false. There's some women who are tall who love wearing heels. Some of the ones who don't they're just insecure of their height but you know they come to accept it. Taylor Swift for example is tall and she wears gigantic heels. And Ebony Magazine is wrong. People who've met Beyonce say she's actually kind of tall like 5'6-5'7 though honestly she looks more like a solid 5'5 to me. Really your points are all wrong. Maybe do some more research next time and you probably would've been able to dig up this info that took me like 5 minutes on Google Search.
Yuppy said on 17/Sep/16
Sorry kelly Rowland is 5"7 1/2 and WE ALL KNOW BEYONCE IS SHORTER THAN KELLY.
Yuppy said on 11/Sep/16
Michael we said 5"3, first of all women with a real 5"7 height wouldn't find it a necessary to wear heels at ALL times most of them prefer flats. Most tall women dislike being even taller. Beyonce doesn't have long legs, long arms or a long torso...? A person with a real 5"7 or even 5"6 height would never see eye to eye with tiny Prince or Kendrick Lamar especially with heels on. Rihanna is actually 5"8 and she doesn't wear as high of a heel as Beyonce, and riri rarely wears platform heels when standing with Beyonce who is most likely wearing platforms or 5 inch heels. Ebony magazine did interview Beyonce in person and described the women they saw as a petite 5"3 inches tall.
Michael said on 1/Sep/16
I like how everyone states Beyonce is 5'2. There's just no way she's that height. I saw a pic with her and Rihanna together wearing the same inches of heels and she doesn't look 6 inches shorter than her. She's definitely 5'5 not more than 5'5.5 in my opinion.
Yummy said on 29/Aug/16
She is lying dude, it even sounds like she is lying. Girls lie about their height all the time especially if they have the proportions to fool you. Look at her next to 5"2 prince.

Like M said, Kendrick Lamar is only 5"4 and beyonce is shorter than him. Beyonce is 5"3 guys and she is really self conscious about it nothing is wrong with being 5"3 and that's actually not short.

With 5'4 Kendrick Lamar. I think we know better that she is not tall.
Truth said on 24/Jun/16
She is 5"3 ebony magazines already proved this. She is very small and petite.
997 said on 13/Jun/16
she's over 5,6
realheight said on 2/Jun/16
I think her height definitely not close to 5'7". but I'm sure she is not 5'3" or under. she seems like 5'4.25"(+/-0.25) to me.
Jada64 said on 20/May/16
She can't be "5'3". Bruno Mars is 5'5 and she towered over him at the haftime show. 5'3 would be Amber riley or Kelly Ripa.
2016 Baby I just seen her. said on 11/May/16
Well it's 2016 and I just came back from the formation world tour last night in Dallas may 9, 2016 at 7:30 and I was in front row. I'm here to tell you Beyoncé is so tiny in height and weight. She is about 5"3 or less! Ebony magazine was RIGHT! I went straight for this purpose! She was the shortest of all her dancers too! Except 1 but that girl was even smaller like 4"11. Sorry ladies Beyoncé is in the petite gang when it comes to height. 5"2 to 5"3 on a good day,
Just said on 5/Mar/16
I think 5'6 maybe 5'5 is about right. Certainly not 5'4!
Az said on 3/Mar/16
I think I've said this before somewhere but I have seen Solange her sister many many times due to my line of work and she's probably 5'4". Shorter than my 5'7.5" when I'm in flats she's in heels. Don't really know how she and B stack up but I do know Solange is under 5'5.5" and that B is shorter or close to height of Bruno Mars, who I've met and hung out with due to work...Bruno is about 5'4.75" at most.
murt said on 3/Mar/16
Yeah I agree - she's got be around 5'2 or 5'3 -- those heels are 5 inches.
SK said on 17/Feb/16
I have to agree with what heelshealheigh wrote below. Beyonce said in a Jet magazine interview years ago that she was 5'3" and a size 10. That sounds about right for her. A woman who is legitimately 5'6" and wearing those high heels can't be that short next to David Beckham. Beckham is tall enough, but not over 6' tall. Frankly, Beyonce looks like she's 5'6" in those heels, which are substantial. Both she and JLO appear to be the same height here, and both are wearing very high heels.
heelshealheight said on 13/Feb/16
If Beckham is about 5ft11 (he's listed as 5ft9-5ft10 elsewhere), these two women are no way even close to 5ft7. These women are wearing very high heels and Beckham continues to tower over them. These women are way below 5ft7 even in those huge heels of theirs. If their height claims were real, they could easily reach 5ft11 with high heels. Bogus Hollywood height claims..

Watch her and Bruno Mars and look at pics of her and Bruno at the super bowl. She's 5'5" tops. She was FANTASTIC btw. As was lady gaga. Wow. oxx
Evan said on 1/Feb/16
Hello Rob! In the above picture of Beyonce with Beckham and Jennifer Lopez, as we can see, Beyonce and J Lo look the exact same height. So how can J Lo be 164 cm and Beyonce 168 cm?? I find Beyonce's height rather exaggerated, don't you think??
Editor Rob: I do think there is more difference than in that photo.
HeightObsession said on 12/Jan/16
It was really hard to tell Beyonce's height at Madame Tussauds London because of her bent position and 3-4 heel boots. I can definitely tell you that she is no less than 5'5.5 and no more than 5'6.5. She is definitely above average height. My guess would be more towards the higher end. We are similar in height and body type - I am 169 cm and 35.5-26-37.5. Her measurements are approximately 34-26-38. Our legs look similar, so I can tell you that she looks possibly shorter in pictures because we have larger legs than the average celebrity. I would know lol :P
Fray said on 11/Jan/16
@M - oops my bad, I thought I was on a site that was all about celeb-heights. D'oh!
M said on 7/Jan/16
@Fray you are obssesed with height..No they are not the same height, because Beyonce is bending her knees, and J.Lo probably has the higher heels on.
Fray said on 28/Dec/15
Anyone notice how JLo and Bae are the same height in the main photo above?
Anthem said on 23/Dec/15
Her figure at Madame Tussauds looked closer to 5'5, but she (her figure) was bending its legs, so maybe 5'5.5-5'6
Bob said on 12/Nov/15
Based on the picture you currently have up of Jennifer Lopez, David Beckham, and Beyonce:

Beck is sneakily wearing boots I believe, which gives him 1.5", maybe 2". That makes him 6' 0.5" to 6' 1" in this pic. Beyonce is up to around the middle of his nose, so subtract about 5" which makes Beyonce around 5' 8" in this pic

Beyonce is also wearing 3.5"-4" heels, which should give her about 3" in height. She's not 5' 6", but somewhere in between 5'6" and 5' 5". Def not 5' 7" like what Google is trying to tell us!
plus said on 4/Nov/15
Ok, now I am better guessing heights because of this website, I can she is 166-168 cm and no less. Just a little shorter tan Mariah Carey.
Conrad said on 18/Oct/15
She is small ! She is 5ft4 or 1.62 cm ; not like google claims 5'7 1.69 cm . So let's be real .
And Jlo is 5'3 or 1.60cm like Britney Spears .
andre said on 16/Oct/15
with beckham she looks 5ft4.5
Cata said on 29/Sep/15
She may look shorter, but only because she has thick muscular legs and wide hips. Next to other female celebs like Rihanna and Oprah, she looks no less than 5'6".
plus said on 24/Sep/15
No way she is so tall. Beckham is 5,11, and she is having heels 3x Beckham, Rather 5,4 5,5 maximum
Az said on 3/Aug/15
If Solange knowles is 5'8" then I am easily 5'11". Funny thing though, I just got back from my annual doctor appt. and Im 5'7" no change at 4:30pm in no shoes. I have seen and met solange a lot of times. I would bet my last $ that Solange is 5'4.5 MAX but truly every time I see her I'm working in flats and she's in heels and still inches shorter. She's 5'3" in real doctors office heiggt. Beyoncé therefore ain't close to 5'6". Beyoncé is 5'4" on a good day.
Dom said on 25/Jun/15
Looks 5'6,5 or a bit more sometimes
cdk said on 16/Jun/15
5'5"-5'5.5"
