According to Dictionary.com, a midlife crisis is defined as a form of psychological/emotional stress triggered by a physical, occupational, or domestic event, such as menopause, diminishing physical prowess, or fading fame.
Woman's Day published 13 warning signs that a woman may be experiencing a midlife crisis.
The list includes a period of negative self-reflection, making impulsive decisions, questioning your sanity, fear of lost youth, and boredom.
The warning signs fit the pattern displayed by fading pop superstar Beyonce Knowles.
Over the weekend, the 38-year-old mother-of-3 published a photo shoot paying homage to old skool rapper Li'l Kim, pictured right.
Multiple high quality images showed the singer dressed in similar outfits worn by the original Queen B 2 decades ago.
What grown woman with infant twins and a 5-year-old daughter at home would do this?
It doesn't help Beyonce that her aging husband, rapper Jay-Z, 47, is going through a midlife crisis of his own.
Jay-Z has embarked on a concert tour, but the arenas are half-empty with tickets going for as low $6.
The more Jay-Z stays away from home, it seems Beyonce is going through a period of emotional distress as she struggles to hang on to her fading youth and fleeting fame.
