(Newser) Time magazine's list of the 100 most influential people of 2014 is out, and superstar Beyonce is the face of the special issue. The singer, who surprised fans with a brand-new album last December that broke record sales, is featured on the magazine's cover, which hits newsstands today. Sheryl Sandberg, the author of the book Lean In, wrote a tribute to B for the publication, saying: "Beyonce doesn't just sit at the table. She builds a better one." A writer for Entertainment Weekly points out Beyonce was included in the magazine's "titans" section along with Hillary Clinton and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, instead of getting lumped into the "artists" category, which features more of the actors and musicians.

I'd rather listen to the noise a garbage truck makes when backing up, than her sing. And, Time Magazine morphed into People Magazine many years ago. And People became Star.

She's a very talented and attractive performer, but very, very far from Mother Teresa. There are people in the peace corps that risk their lives to help others. She should be on the cover of rolling stone, not time magazine.
