Beyoncé. Queen Bey. Mrs. Carter. However you refer to her as, she is basically #GOALS in every sense of the word. And many in the Beyhive think of her as the Goddess that she very much is -- but sometimes it's nice to recognize the fact that she is human just like us. Which is why her new unauthorized biography, Becoming Beyoncé -- by celebrity biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli -- is a refreshing little read.

In Becoming Beyoncé, Taraborrelli's shares his take on Beyoncé's life from her days in Destiny's Child as a Knowles, to her status as Queen Bey as a Carter, and everything in between. According to Cosmopolitan, Taraborrelli hired a private investigator, who has spoken with a TON of people in Bey's life.

Among the many things you learn from Becoming Beyoncé, there are the things that make Queen Bey more human, thus proving that deep down ... she's just like us! Check it out:

1. She knows how to hock a loogie, and she's not afraid to do it.

Queen Bey has sinus issues, and as a result often suffered from a stuffy nose over the course of her 34 years on Earth. A former associate of Taraborrelli described how she would clear her nose as a kid:

"Okay, this is gross kid stuff, but it's true. Her nose was stuffed up all the time. It was an ongoing problem. She would lay a sheet of paper down on the floor and then stand over it. Then she'd put pressure on one nostril with her index finger and blow out. And the snot would just go flying. She'd do the same with the other nostril. We'd all say, 'Beyoncé, that is just nasty,' and she'd laugh and said, 'I know! But if y'all want me to sing, this is what I gotta do! Turn y'all backs if you don't wanna see it.'"

2. She once kicked someone where the sun don't shine.

We're just going to take this as "she doesn't take sh*t from anyone." Since Bey and the rest of the Knowles clan were close to her former manager Andretta Tillman and her sons, they spent quite a bit of time together. Once instance describes one of Andretta's sons doing something to annoy Beyonce SO much, that she marched right up to him and took care of things. 

"Before anyone could stop her, she ran right up to Chris, who was just standing there with his hands in his pockets, and kicked him right in the nuts! The poor kid fell right to his knees like a sack of potatoes."

3. Truth or Dare is a game she's played, and if you dare her to do something -- she will DO IT.

Before Destiny's Child blew up, Beyonce was in a group called Girls Tyme. Once when Bey and her girls -- who were all crushing on Usher at the time (tyme?) -- ran into the R&B crooner, she was dared to moon him ... and actually did it! Her former bandmate, Nina Taylor, said:

"She dropped her pants maybe halfway down and mooned him, real fast. We all squealed with delight, and Usher's eyes got wide as saucers and he exclaimed, 'Damn, girl!'"

4. She is no stranger to the awkward first kiss.

Raise your hand if during your first kiss, you bumped heads with the person you were kissing? 🙋Yeah, well, the same thing happened to Beyonce during her first kiss with her first love, Lyndall Locke, at a Brian McKnight concert at 13 years old.

"Once we got to the auditorium, before the show started, I accidentally dropped our popcorn," Lyndall recalled. "Beyoncé and I both bent down to get it. When we did, our heads bumped. We looked at each other, and that's when it happened — the first kiss. I had never before felt anything like that in my entire … fifteen years."

5. She has hobbies outside of her career, and they include painting.

If you've ever been to a "Paint Night" and created a beautiful masterpiece while enjoying a glass of wine (or two, or three), or even doodled all over your notebook as a kid, then you will appreciate this: Queen Bey likes to paint! She took up painting while filming Austin Powers Goldmember. Here's one instance when an associate once questioned her artistic genius:

"He asked, 'Why does that woman have a beak on her neck?' It wasn't a beak, of course — even if it looked like one. Beyoncé, who took her painting almost as seriously as her music, was offended."
