7 Queens We Should Be Worshipping

We all love our Beyonces and Lanas and Gagas, but there are plenty more queens who deserve our attention and love. Bow down.

7. Danielle Brooks

Danielle Brooks is hilarious and fierce, and she can switch back and forth between the two in a blink of an eye. Hell, she can do them both at the same time. Known for playing Taystee on "Orange is the New Black," Danielle has shown why she deserves our attention for her talent, but she slays both on and off screen. She shows up on a red carpet and she OWNS that red carpet.

6. Sarah Paulson

She's a badass actress, an LGBT activist, and her Twitter presence is incredibly endearing. American Horror Story is stacked with queens, but Sarah Paulson is in a league of her own. Just look at that ethereal goddess!

4. Santigold

A musical mastermind, Santigold is as authentically incredible as it gets. She's almost too cool to be real. Her debut album "Santogold" is legendary, and she's even got her own sock line. While the world waits for an update on her next album, start building your shrine to her now.

3. Kerry Washington

She's done Tarantino, she's done prime time, she's done action...what hasn't she done? Kerry Washington is a bona fide star, but her activism and her confidence are what make this woman a queen. Olivia Pope might be a bad bitch on-screen, but Kerry Washington is the real deal.

2. Annie Clark

Better known as her stage name St. Vincent, Annie Clark is a magical space alien queen who has landed on earth so that we may benefit from her good vibes. From her aesthetic to the beautiful music she makes, she is positively enchanting. Looking at her is like staring at the sun: beautiful and disorienting.

1. Amal Clooney!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen

This woman is a Queen with a capital Q. Amal is THE Queen. Forget her impeccable style and endlessly graceful candor...Amal kicks ass and takes names for a living. She's an international powerhouse with beauty and brains. She's so incredible that she'll never even know she made it on this list because she's busy changing the world. And that's okay, because that's why we love her.
