    "Charlie, how yo angels get down like that?"

    It's always been known that Beyoncé was the lead singer of the group, however, there may be a good reason for this. And it's been blatantly obvious for years!

    MIND. BLOWN.

    RIGHT? RIGHT? RIGHT?

    No wonder the group was never called "Destiny's Children."

    When you realize they didn't call it destinys children

    CAUSE KELLY AND MICHELLE AREN'T TINA'S OFFSPRING.

    This explains what most people already knew: The sole purpose of Destiny's Child was to turn Beyoncé into one of the greatest pop stars the world has ever seen, and this was most likely constructed by her mom.

    (And her dad, too, but we ain't talkin' about him).
