Beyonce has landed the cover of Time magazine’s annual “100 Most Influential People in the World”.
The singer beat other President Obama, Hillary Clinton, Vladimir Putin, Pope Francis and Miley Cyrus to land the coveted spot.
Other covers placed inside the magazine feature actor Robert Redford and the first openly-gay NBA star Jason Collins.
Time’s “Most Influential” list names people who have inspired others, regardless of their moral standing. The list also includes a profile by another star, explaining why the person deserves a spot.
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg explains, “She’s the boss. Beyonce has sold out the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour while being a full-time mother. Beyonce doesn’t just sit at the table. She builds a better one. Her secret: hard work, honesty and authenticity. And her answer to the question, ‘What would you do if you weren’t afraid? appears to be ‘Watch me. I’m about to do it.’ Then she adds, ‘You can, too.'”
Sandberg and Beyonce worked together on a campaign in which they called for a ban on the word ‘Bossy’ to describe women.
Beyonce appears in the ‘Titans’ section of the list alongside Pharrell Williams, Hillary Clinton and Jeff Bezos, while other sections include Pioneers, Artists, Leaders and Icons.
Time listed Kerry Washington, Amy Adams, Frozen songwriters Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez about the most influential artists of the year.
Late Night host Seth Meyers, country musician Carrie Underwood, ‘Happy’ singer Pharrell Williams, Russian President Vladimir Putin and singer Miley Cyrus also feature in the magazine.
Each person on the list is profiled by another famous figure; Malala Yousafzai wrote about Hillary Clinton issue, while Amy Poehler wrote about Seth Meyers, and Dolly Parton wrote about god-daughter Miley Cyrus.
Beyonce shocked fans when she released a secret album featuring 14 songs and 17 videos.
Director Baz Lurhmann wrote of her, “When Beyoncé does an album, when Beyoncé sings a song, when Beyoncé does anything, it’s an event, and it’s broadly influential. Right now, she is the heir-apparent diva of the USA — the reigning national voice.”
We’re not sure about the singer’s title of “Most Influential Person in the World”, but she has a great booty!
Queen Bey just released her full music video for “Pretty Hurts”.
