When I first met Beyoncé, she was a shy 20-year-old on the set of a Destiny's Child music video. Seventeen years later, she's a married mom of three, a superstar with a whopping 22 Grammys, and a cultural icon with passionate (to put it lightly) fans known as the BeyHive. And on April 15, she'll become the first black woman to headline the annual Coachella festival in California. I've never attended the three-day extravaganza, but that might change this year—because when Beyoncé asks the crowd Who run the world?, I want to be in the mix shouting "You do!"
