    Please note the following comment is not a swipe. However, how does Beyonce rank higher than many of these women who have made strides for humanity?

    This is incredible, but I find it weird that people in entertainment are considered more powerful than people people who are presidents and top philanthropists. Do we as humans really put entertainers on a higher level than those aiding to the good of humanity? Or has that question already answered itself?
