Who run the world? Beyonce...and Time magazine just made it official. Jay-Z's powerhouse wife, who self-released her fifth album in December, was named one of their Most Influential people of the Year.
The "Drunk in Love" singer explains why landing this particular mag cover was so important to her. "Shooting for Time magazine was definitely one of the goals in my life," she says. "It's something important for me as an artist, because it's not about fashion or beauty 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."
And while Queen Bey continues to win at life, we all win too, because she just released a brand new music video for "Pretty Hurts" to celebrate her VIP status. The video shows Bey trying to be perfect in a beauty pageant by getting plastic surgery and slim down by throwing up her meals. Pretty powerful!
She wants you to join the conversation on what real beauty is, too. Upload a pic to Instagram with the hashtag #WhatIsPretty and sound off on what defines pretty for you.
