Beyonce Covers Time 100 Issue, Praised as Authentic "Full-Time Mother"

by at .

Bill O'Reilly may think Beyonce is a terrible role model, but Time just bestowed a major honor on the singer.

Not only is Queen Bey considered one of the publication's 100 Most Influential People in the world... she graces one of the four covers representing this annual issue of the magazine.

The other covers are dedicated to actor Robert Redford, gay NBA star Jason Collins and General Motors CEO Mary Barra.

"In the past year, Beyoncé has sold out the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour while being a full-time mother,” writes Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, adding:

"Her secret: hard work, honesty and authenticity. And her answer to the question, 'What would you do if you weren't afraid?' appears to be 'Watch me. I'm about to do it.' Then she adds, 'You can, too.'"

Other notable star on the Time 100 list include Benedict Cumberbatch, Seth Meyers, Amy Adams, McConaughey, Pharrell Williams, Kerry Washington and, yes, Miley Cyrus.

Chelsea Clinton refers to Collins - who became the first active professional athlete in a major American sport to come out as gay - as "a leader and an inspiration," lauding him for maintaining a sense of "integrity."

President Obama and Pope Francis are also on the list.

The Time 100 issue hits newsstands on Friday, April 25.
