(New York Daily News) – Don’t think Beyoncé can get any bigger? Just wait until she’s single.

So don’t sweat the reports that Jay Z and Queen Bey’s six-year marriage is over, because the “Single Ladies” singer will only get more powerful when she adds “single mother” to her glittering résumé.

“She is going to be the most powerful woman in the world, hanging out with Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey and Blue Ivy and talking about being a single mom,” says one crisis coach who has helped other celebs move to Splitsville. “The goddess suddenly becomes even more relatable to women everywhere.”

True, the couple can say goodbye to their carefully crafted image as the first family of hip hop — the one that’s turning the “On the Run” tour into a $100 million juggernaut.
