Need To Know: Beyoncé Is Flawless On The Cover Of Time

Today's top stories include a behind-the-scenes look at Justin Bieber's 'Confident' and Rick Ross' new gig at Rolling Stone.

Beyoncé Influences The World
Bey covers this year’s Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People issue. *QUEEEEEN!* The feature pairs well with the other MTV amigos on the list. Miley Cyrus is profiled by Dolly Parton and Pharrell Williams by Justin Timberlake.

Weren’t You Wondering How ‘Confident’ Was Made?
Justin Bieber’s producer / songwriter Soundz is featured in a short video about the making of Bieber’s “Confident.” “Producers and songwriters of today, we gotta be in 2015,” says Soundz. “I’m not even in 2014 right now.” We’ll still be bumping that beat in 2020, bud.

Rick Ross Will Now Take Your Questions
Relationship problems? Family issues? Turn to the Teflon Don. Rick Ross is the new Rolling Stone advice columnist, and, though we were skeptical, it seems that if Ross tells you to do something, you should probably do it.

Living my life like the title of a Mindy Kaling book. “Is everyone hanging out without me?” The answer is yes. T. Swift and Hyland noted that they were dressed as “a strait-laced mom and her rebellious teen daughter” during their hang sesh last night. I’m happy to play the trying-too-hard father, guys.

Olivia Wilde & Jason Sudeikis Welcome Son
The actress tweeted a sweet close-up of new son Otis Alexander on Wednesday. The baby has “has LEFT the building! (I’m the building),” she joked. Congrats, Otis! You have two of the coolest parents around.
