Beyonce heading to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

BEYONCE is to take up a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nearly 20 years before she is eligible for admission as bosses launch an exhibition dedicated to the pop superstar. The singer's stage costumes from her 2013 Super Bowl performance will be put on display at the institute's museum in Cleveland, Ohio alongside pieces from music legends including Michael Jackson and David Bowie. The exhibition will also feature the iconic leotard she wore in her Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It) video, an outfit from her Crazy in Love promo and a Givenchy gown worn to the 2012 Met Gala in New York City. Curator Meredith Rutledge-Borger says of the exhibition, "We felt that (Beyonce) really needed to take her rightful place alongside Aretha Franklin and the Supremes and Janis Joplin." A spokesperson for Beyonce adds, "For an artist to be able to have a presence where all of her idols and mentors live, it is a big deal. It's very meaningful to an artist when you feel like you've accomplished certain levels and to be asked to be part of this before she's eligible, I think that's really special." Beyonce will first become eligible for a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2022 as a member of Destiny's Child, and as a solo artist in 2027. The Beyonce show will debut at the museum on Tuesday (22Jul14).
