Beyonce Knowles - Beyonce Realised Her Success During Sabbatical

Beyonce only fully came to terms with her huge success last year (10) when she took a 12-month career break.
The Crazy in Love superstar had worked tirelessly since her early teens before taking 2010 off at the height of her fame.
After shooting into the spotlight in Destiny's Child, Beyonce has since released three platinum albums and picked up a raft of awards, including a staggering 16 Grammys.
And the star admits she never truly thought about her accomplishments until she had time to relax and take it in.
She tells Cnn's Piers Morgan, "I love what I do, I love writing songs... I do not count the 72 songs I wrote in that year (off) as work because it is what I was born to do. And (in my year off) I learned balance, I learned the importance of taking time for myself.
"I was moving around so much that I didn't realise I have 16 Grammies. I've heard that, I've got up and accepted my awards, but I didn't realise what a massive accomplishment that is."
