Beyonce Covers Complex Magazine + Interview!

On her music:

I’ve found that with hit records the melody and lyrics come together [naturally]. I usually know from the hook if the song is something that transcends language, race, and genre, and if it’s something that affects pop culture. It’s something I can visualize people singing in stadiums all over the world. But my favorite songs on my albums are usually not my singles.


Working with Frank Ocean:

Jay had a CD playing in the car one Sunday when we were driving to Brooklyn. I noticed his tone, his arrangements, and his storytelling. I immediately reached out to him—literally the next morning. I asked him to fly to New York and work on my record.”

On her motivation:

Whenever I feel bad, I use that feeling to motivate me to work harder. “I only allow myself one day to feel sorry for myself. People who complain really get on my nerves. When I’m not feeling my best I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’ I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.

Nicki Minaj Is Principal For A Day @ Chicago High School + Pics!

Superstar Nicki Minaj surprised more than 400 students and acted as the “Principal for the Day” at Collins Academy High School.

Minaj’s visit is one of many rewards for the students and teachers who won the Get MotivatED Challenge – a six week competition to improve daily attendance rates nationwide. Twenty-five schools in eleven cities vied for the title in the Challenge that used pop culture, technology and media to engage youth on the importance of coming to school.

Nicki Minaj said, “I am a young, female mogul before I am an artist. As a business woman there isn’t a single day where I don’t use my education or acquire new knowledge to ensure my success. Regardless of where you are today, with education you can take yourself where you want to be. That’s why I am working with the Get Schooled Foundation. They are finding innovative and exciting ways to bring that message to schools like the Collins Academy.”

Studies show that rate of attendance is one of the most significant predictors of dropping out. Students with more than 20 absences in any given year have only a 19 percent likelihood of graduating.

According to the 2010 Diploma Counts report, only 55 percent of Chicago students graduate from high school on time. Throughout the six week competition, students and teachers at Collins Academy worked together and improved daily attendance by 7 percent. Since the competition ended, Collins Academy has maintained a 92 percent attendance rate, positioning the school among the top of all Chicago’s high schools in terms of attendance.

“Collins Academy students and staff put everything into this attendance challenge,” said Collins Academy Principal Andre Cowling. “We tell students that they own their future and that education is their pathway to success. Winning this challenge is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our students and staff – and that work continues every day.”

The three Collins Academy students who each received $10,000 college scholarships are Amanda Chaney, Rachael Pillot, and Japone Johnson.

In recognizing these students, Comcast Vice President of Community Investment for Comcast Corporation and Executive Vice President of the Comcast Foundation Charisse R. Lillie said, “Comcast seeks to support organizations that inspire young people to lead, and the Get MotivatED Challenge encourages them to do just that. We are thrilled to present these scholarships to these outstanding students at Collins Academy and bring them one step closer to achieving their educational goals.”

“The Get MotivatED Challenge proved that with focus, support and incentives, schools can increase student engagement and high school attendance rates,” said Marie Groark, Executive Director of the Get Schooled Foundation. “Collins Academy staff and students demonstrated tremendous commitment to changing their data and the7 percent attendance gain is a testament to their hard work.”

In addition to the $30,000 scholarships from Comcast to the three Collins Academy students, twelve students at four other competing schools including Burke HS (Boston), Lincoln HS (Philadelphia), McGavock HS (Nashville) and Orr Academy HS (Chicago) are each receiving $1,000 scholarships from Comcast as a reward for their leadership and for going above and beyond to motivate their peers throughout the competition.
