When you're Beyonce, a Tesco's Finest cake and bottle of Cava just won't cut it when it comes to birthday celebrations. It has to be something special, especially after blowing the world away at the VMAs in August.

E! Online had the scoop on how the celebrations went down; apparently Bey and her family and closest pals jetted off to the luxurious island of Corsica for a birthday bash to remember. In their article the website claims "An eyewitness tells us that upon Queen B's arrival, her loved ones had written "Happy Birthday" in sticks on the sand. Jay and Bey were very playful and joyous with one another, the insider added, noting that Beyoncé looked very happy throughout the festivities."

Cute! And apparently she was in a generous mood too, tipping the hostess on their private jet a hefty €500. Well, when you're chatering a luxury yacht that rents for around $800,000 a week, that's basically pocket change. Apparently there's a family tradition of going away for Beyonce's birthday in September, and the family could certainly do with a break. 

It's been a crazy year for Mrs. Carter, starting with the surprise release of her fifth studio album in December 2013. Since then she has gone on to travel the world with her husband with their On the Run Tour, receive the Video Vanguard Award celebrating her lifetime of musical achievement at the VMA's, and generally rule the world.

Hubby Jay-Z also posted a touching tribute to his wife on Youtube; a video entitled 'Happy B Day' featuring unseen footage of Bey from the past year, backstage on the On the Run tour.
