TIME magazine just dropped its 100 Most Influential People list and a few of your faves made the cut!  Nicki Minaj, Idris Elba, Taraji P. Henson and Kendrick Lamar were all given a spot and we’re absolutely ecstatic about it.

The Queen of Barbs spoke with TIME  and offered valuable advice for women looking to start a business.

“..I would tell women starting out in business, if you know you’re great at what you do, don’t ever be ashamed to ask for the top dollar in your field. If I’m great at what I do, I can’t be denied. Some things may be overlooked but no one can deny my brand, and that’s the words of wisdom I would give to other young women.”

…and what was it like working with Queen Bey??

Whenever I do something with her, I can feel the impact online and in the venue, wherever we are,” she says. “It just feels like young women are being empowered and inspired because I think it says a lot when you see two young women at the top of their field, whether they’re black or white, it just means a lot when you see them owning who they are and owning the business.
