Pop singer Beyoncé Knowles may not be a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but her career in the music industry has been as steady as a rock. What is a recent feat for the artiste, six of her outfits will be going on display at the museum next week. This makes her the first artiste not inducted to be featured in a part of the Cleveland museum usually reserved for hall of famers.
The exhibit dedicated to her outfits is scheduled to open on Tuesday with a leather and lace body suit, skirt and jacket from her 2013 Super Bowl performance and a one-sleeve black leotard she wore in her 2008 Single Ladies video.
Beyoncé does not become eligible for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a performer until 2022. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, which opened in 1995, is also featuring other contemporary singers in an exhibit called Right Here, Right Now, which recently opened in another part of the building.
That exhibit includes a tuxedo Bruno Mars wore at the 2012 Grammy Awards, an outfit Lady Gaga wore for her Bad Romance video, a peppermint tour dress Katy Perry donned in 2011 and a body suit Rihanna wore in her Rude Boy video.
