Beyoncé is stunning and talented, but she's also proved that she has a good sense of humour too this week by uploading a funny childhood picture of her husband Jay-Z.

The 'Bootylicious' songstress posted the amusing snap to her Instagram account, which shows Jay-Z (real name Shawn Carter) dressed in a traditional blue cap and gown for what appears to be a school graduation.

Underneath the photo it read "Bow Down", referring to Beyoncé's recent song of the same name, in which she asserts her authority as the best female singer in the industry.

No doubt Beyoncé was making the point that her rap star husband is also a dominating and internationally successful figure in music, especially since she captioned the picture: "Platinum #MagnaCarta"

Last week, Jay-Z released his new studio album, Magna Carter Holy Grail, via a free Samsung digital download application.

Given its association with Samsung, the album made instant headlines by going platinum and selling 1 million copies before it had even officially been released - something which has never been done before!

The childhood photo of Jay-Z is reminiscent of Beyoncé's 'Bow Down' single artwork too, which sees the Destiny's Child member as a youngster, wearing a pink prom dress and a tiara while surrounded by various trophies. Now that's what we call a power couple!
