A teenager with parents who either had huge ambitions for her or wanted her to feel woefully inadequate every day of her life has spoken out about what it's like to be named Beyoncé and involuntarily started a support group for others afflicted with celebrity name syndrome.

Beyoncé was approached by the photography blog 'Humans of New York' and she discussed the trials and tribulations of sharing a name with one of the most famous women on earth. She told Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind humans of New York that:

Although nobody else called Beyoncé put their hands up in support, a plethora of celebrity namesakes made themselves known in the most addictive comments section ever and told their stories, including Beyoncé's former Destiny's Child bandmates...
