Beyoncé Reveals Madonna Was The Inspiration Behind Her Self-Titled "Visual" Album!

Looks like the Queen of Pop does heavily inspire Queen Bey!

After Beyoncé smooched Madonna's daughter Mercy James at her concert in Brooklyn last week, we knew the two were besties…

But now, there's official (and inspirational) confirmation!

At a screening for her "visual album" on Saturday in NYC, Bey finally revealed some Material Girl intel inside her new bananas music:

"I felt like I wanted to follow in the footsteps of Madonna and be a powerhouse and have my own empire—show other women, when you get to this point in your career, you don’t have to go sign with someone else and share your money, and your success, you can do it yourself."

And then, Blue Ivy's momma went deeper into how the secret plan came all together:

"I found a team of underdogs, a team of women, a team of people that no one believed in. And we worked together and we stayed up all night and we were progressive and we did not follow the rules and we said, ‘Why can’t we do it?’ and I don’t think people believed, you know?"

Oh, we believe in your mogul fabooshness, Mrs. Carter!

Sooo OBSESSED that Madge and Beyoncé are sharing their love affair with the world AND that we get an insider's look into the making of this epic album!

Christmas has totes come 2 days early, y'all!

    All Beyonces fans are from developing countries, where theyre kinda late in trends. LOL. She was only cool here in America in 1985. Not anymore. She's now a washed up, forgotten, irrelevant old has been who has had no success in decades.

    Asians all together can hear, and see what you're visually thinking.
    THIS IS NOT A JOKE OR A MEME! This is the absolute complete truth!!!!
    .
    Asians hide their mind reading abilities by having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
    Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.
    .
    All Asians are keeping their mind reading abilities a secret, they don't want ANYONE to know they can read minds! They value hiding it more than their own lives!!!
    .
    Try thinking, and visually picturing things as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason, it works if you try enough!!!
    .
    PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!

    Epic album? Deborah Harry/Blondie made a video album with a a video for each song for their "Eat To The Beat" LP. This was in 1979.

    You are so stupid. she didnt say Madonna was the inspiration behind her album. She said Madonna was her inspiration to start her own company and manage herself. Theres a fuckiing difference. You have selective hearing. so annoying

    No, she said Madonna inspired her to get behind her own empire. This is excellent.
    Keep going; you've come too far to be pimped by industry types. Yesssssssssssss.

    She even copies Britney Spears…in fact more than Madonna (even her perfumes) Beyonce should give people credit when they inspire her. She now says Madonna inspired her before Madonna calls her reductive like she did with Gaga. But Madonna can't call Beyonce a reductive because Jay Z will finish her career and illuminate will fire her. #truth

    Re: LeHollywood – Substitute "dumb" for the word "funny" in your statement, and you might be a little bit more credible, and the only "Who?" you should be asking is WHO gave you your host of STDs. Now be gone, your ignorant Section 8 queen.

    Re: LC – std's? ugh another loser who has no point so they have to revert to trying to attack me personally even though u dont know me. lol so sad.. as for everythiing u said, apply that to you're damn self. ignorant bitch. u mad? lol!!!!!!

    Re: LeHollywood – I had a point. You didn't like it, so you're the one who made the first attack by attacking my point (and making yourself look stupid in the process), but now you want to act all diplomatic and play the victim. Did I hit a nerve? Try to open up your mind a little bit and learn some pop culture history, and maybe improve your grammar as well before you decide to come for me. The only thing sad here is the education system that has failed you. I don't have to know you to know that.
