1. Since the countdown to "Rhythm Nation" was incredibly epic...
...it only makes sense that Queen Bey would recreate the look for Halloween.
2. We were all stunned when she appeared on screen as a flawless vision of a dark, afro-future fantasy in the "What's it Gonna Be" video with Busta Rhymes.
3. And she wowed us with her glowing skin and funky new hairstyle in "Got Til It's Gone."
4. She was the most badass feminist in the coming-of age song, "Control," where she let everyone know who was boss.
5. Her widely known risqué live performances of "Would You Mind" had one particular audience member screaming for joy and thanking God for his blessings.
6. When she started her impressive acting career as the adorable, fresh-faced Penny from Good Times, we all knew she had true star power.
7. She stole all of our hearts as the sweet and sometimes feisty bride-to-be Denise Gaines in the family favorite The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps.
8. When she acted alongside Tupac in Poetic Justice, everyone started wearing their braids like her.
9. The album cover to The Velvet Rope was breathtaking and didn't even show all of Janet's face!
10. And WHO could ever forget the Rolling Stone cover that literally defined sex?
11. The dance break she did when she performed "Doesn't Really Matter" at the 2000 VMAs was jaw-dropping to watch.
12. We will never get tired of seeing the "All 4 U" music video and all its amazing '00s choreography.
We love that subway.
