On Thursday morning, Time magazine released their 11th annual “Time 100 Most Influential People in the World” issue and guess who is gracing the issue’s cover? The one and only … Beyonce. Can we just say, “Bow Down?”
The singer, who is named one of Time’s most influential people in the world, takes the cover in a gorgeous white two piece ensemble with a sheer number over the top. According to Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook and founder of LeanIn.org, Beyonce is “the boss.”
“Beyonce doesn’t just sit at the table. She builds a better one. Today she sits at the head of the boardroom table at Parkwood Entertainment,” Sandberg wrote about the 32-year-old Grammy Award winner. “In December, she took the world by surprise when she released a new album, complete with videos, and announced it on Facebook and Instagram. Beyoncé shattered music-industry rules — and sales records.”
In a behind the scenes video, the star reveals that it was always a goal in her career to shoot for the publication. “It’s something important for me as an artist because it’s not about fashion or TV or music. It’s about the influence I’ve had on culture. And to be amongst the other influential people is a huge honor for me.”
Earlier this year, Billboard released their annual Power 100 list and sharing the top ranking, Jay Z and Beyonce. As expected, the Queen Bey continues to still be on top.
Sandberg continues, “In the past year, Beyoncé has sold out the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour while being a full-time mother. 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.’
Some of the other big names inside the coveted issue include Kerry Washington, who is recognized as an actor who projects strength amid scandal. Pharrell Williams, who Justin Timberlake says is a performer whose sound now blankets the world. And Jason Collins, the NBA’s first openly gay player who Chelsea Clinton calls “the man who went first.”
