Beyonce 'Wanted to Follow in the Footsteps of Madonna'

Girls really do run the world! Beyonce held a 'visual album' screening of her self titled fifth album (featuring 17 epic videos) Saturday, Dec. 21 at the School of Visual Arts in NYC - and the global singing sensation shared with fans that her inspiration was none other than Madonna!

Following a screening of all 17 videos, which were played consecutively with movie theater quality sound, Beyonce took to the stage to address the crowd. 'I felt like I wanted to follow in the footsteps of Madonna and be a powerhouse and have my own empire,' the songstress shared of the Queen of Pop, 55, who actually attended Beyonce's Brooklyn show on Thursday, Dec. 19. Madonna shared an adorable Instagram photo from the show of the 'XO' singer planting a kiss on her 8-year-old daughter Mercy James.

The 'Run the World' singer, wearing a stunning sheer black dress at the screening, added that she wanted to '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.'
