    Listen Mike, clearly Beyoncé isn't flawless. But you don't need to be a hardcore fan to recognize that she is indeed a role model for young girls.

    1. Although there is absolutely nothing wrong with having sex with whoever you please, Beyoncé doesn’t have a reputation of being promiscuous.

    Her entire last album was about the joy of intimacy with her HUSBAND!

    2. She is an artist, and though she wears what some would consider revealing clothing on stage, she doesn’t dress in an excessively sexual way in her day-to-day life.

    3. She promotes good values and healthy relationships.

    Whether you’re a believer or not, it’s commendable that Beyoncé and Jay Z speak openly about their relationship and Christian values.

    4. She’s a mother who seems genuinely passionate about caring for her daughter.

    5. She’s loyal to her family.

    6. But she tries to keep family drama out of the media.

    The world will never know the details about Mathew and Tina’s divorce. However, it has been alleged that Mathew fathered multiple children outside of wedlock, and Beyoncé has never publicly discussed his behavior.

    7. Her immense talent is undeniable.

    She sings, acts, dances, and has been honored with dozens of awards.

    8. She’s performed for the fucking president!

    No matter if you voted for Obama or not, it’s pretty impressive.

    9. She clearly loves wigs but isn’t afraid to promote a more natural look.

    Though her daughter Blue received hate for her hair, Beyoncé has never publicly responded to the inappropriate comments.

    10. She’s a vocal feminist.

    11. And promotes strength and independence in her lyrics.

    13. She uses her social media to celebrate other cultures.

    14. She supports the LGBT community.

    In addition to her open letter to Frank Ocean, Beyoncé has also frequently spoken about her gay fans.

    "To be brave and be different and to be yourself — is just so beautiful!"

    15. She’ll take a fall, then get right back up and keep going.

    16. She’s charitable.

    How about the time she donated $7 million to a Houston charity providing "shelter, counseling, food, and health care for the homeless."

    17. She deals with problems, and moves on.

    Though she may have been criticized by ex-members of Destiny’s Child, it’s a sign of good character that she was able to embrace new members and continue kicking ass.

    18. And finally, she doesn’t take herself too seriously.
