Beyonce covers the latest issue of Time for the magazine’s annual 100 Most Influential People list. Hard to argue with that! Over the past year, Bey has completed a global tour, released a visual album under cover of night which single-handedly revived the music industry while shattering its status quo and oh right the music was also incredibly good. Plus, she penned an essay on gender equality, featured in a Lean In PSA and managed to piss off Bill O’Reilly. All while being a mother.
Bey’s friend Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and founder of LeanIn.org, wrote a short essay honoring the diva, who was listed under the Titans category. Also under the Titan heading was Pharrell, with an essay by Justin Timberlake. The other pop stars who made the Time 100 were Miley Cyrus under the Artist category with a post written by Dolly Parton and Carrie Underwood as an Icon with a blurb from Brad Paisley.
