A few days after performing "At Last" at the inauguration, Beyonce received a phone call from Michelle Obama to thank her for performing, the singer, 27, reveals in April's Vogue. "She told me she was very happy that her girls have someone like me to look up to," says Beyonce. "And I'm like, 'Oh, my God.'"

"You have to feel fortunate to be one of the people whom parents don't mind their children looking up to. The older I get, the more I think about the amount of influence I have on these young girls, and it's scary sometimes," she adds. "But I also understand how lucky I am to have that."

Beyonce thanks for family for helping her stay so grounded. She says she can't imagine having her career without them around. "We all did this together," she says.

As for her husband, Jay-Z? "I definitely have learned to be a little more picky from Jay," she says. Because if something makes a lot of sense to everyone else, if he doesn't feel it, he's like, 'I don't want to talk about it.' Which is great."
