Controversies Beyonce was yet again called out by the media with the allegations of booking out an entire floor of the Lenox Hill Hospital while delivering her first child, Ivy Blue Carter. After there was an uproar over her displacing the other parents, a spokesman for Lenox Hill Hospital told the Washington Post that Beyonce had stayed in an executive suite at the hospital, and was billed at the standard rate.
 Beyonce was widely criticised by the noted activist group, People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), after she turned up in a mink coat for then-President, Barrack Obama’s inauguration. Later that year, she drew flak for performing at the Super Bowl XLVII clad in a body-hugging attire made of parts of iguana, python and cow.
 Beyonce and husband Jay Z found themselves in hot water after they were criticised for making a trip to Cuba in 2013. Considering the strenuous relationship between the US and Cuba, the celebs were accused for supporting Fidel Castro’s regime, while being deemed insensitive by the Cuban authorities. There was also a plea made by Florida Republican Representatives Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz to carry out an investigation of their trip, since the tourism between two countries was prohibited at that time.
