Beyoncé has landed the cover of Time Magazines 100 Most Influential People issue. The megastar joins such laudable company as: Barack Obama, Serena Williams, Eric Holder, Kerry Washington, Robert Redford, Pope Francis and more.

She cited her mom, Tina Knowles and daughter Blue Ivy as her biggest influences saying, “Being a mother, becoming a mother and looking at my daughter in her eyes made me into a woman, and made me very, very strong.”

At just 32, Beyoncé doesn’t take her accomplishments for granted and attributes her success to hard work, and honesty.

She was quite honored when approached to do the cover saying, “It’s something important for me as an artist.  It’s not about fashion, beauty, music.  It’s about culture.  Being amongst the other influential people is a huge honor for me.”

I’d say.
