Who influences the world? Beyonce does. A few days after it was announced that Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o was the cover star of People Magazine’s “Most Beautiful People” issue, news surfaces that Beyonce was named one of the world’s most influential people by Time Magazine. She also graces the cover of the mag.
King Bey made the list last year as an “Icon,” while her husband Jay Z took a cover spot. This year, it’s all about Mrs. carter and her accomplishments which were highlighted and praised by “Lean In” author Sheryl Sandberg. Sandberg called Beyonce a boss. She then applauded Beyonce for running her own business empire while holding down her roles as a wife and mother.
Beyonce isn’t the first black woman to grace the cover of Time Magazine. The mag has featured high-profile black women from different walks of life. Check out a few below.
