First ever Beyonce biography to be released next year

Biography will be completed by celebrity writer J Randy Taraborrelli

The first comprehensive biography of Beyonce will be released in autumn 2015, publisher Grand Central Books has announced.

The as-yet-untitled book will be authored by celebrity writer J Randy Taraborrelli and will “explore all facets of Knowles’ life”, including her childhood performances, her time with Destiny’s Child, her solo career and her marriage to Jay Z.

“Beyonce has lived a most incredible, inspiring life,” Taraborrelli said in a statement. “I know my readers will enjoy her journey.” Although Beyonce is not participating in the unauthorised book, Taraborrelli, who has previously written the biographies of Michael Jackson, Madonna and the Hilton family, said he will base his story on extensive research as well as interviews with people “who have been pivotal to her personal and professional development.”

Meanwhile, it has been a busy year for Beyonce. The ‘Drunk in Love’ singer recently completed her On the Run Tour with husband Jay Z and her self-titled album is currently the top-selling record of 2014.

Earlier this month, NME reported that a radio station in Houston, Texas, is now only playing Beyonce songs after being forced to shut down due to poor ratings. News 92 FM, originally an all-news station, has been playing a continuous stream of Beyonce songs and will continue to do so until it finds a new format.
