But while Sasha may be getting all the fame, she's not Beyonce's only alter ego.
"They call me 'Hurricane Beyonce,'" the singer tells PopEater. "Whenever I walk in a room, you give it about 10 minutes, my purse, my shoes -- everything -- is all over the place."
"Hurricane Beyonce" sounds more like a superhero than an alternate persona, but the perfectionist admits that her messiness keeps her sane. "I'm extremely organized with my work. I'm very detail-oriented and a little bit crazy. So when I come home I don't want to think about anything. I don't want to be put together. I just completely destroy everything."
