#1Female Empowerment

While speaking to Essence magazine earlier this year, Cox revealed how Destiny's Child and Beyoncé helped her come into her womanhood:

"When I discovered Beyonce when she was a member of Destiny's Child, I was also in the beginning of my transition right? So I was in this beginning of my transition and trying to find my look, and find like my womanhood. And there was this group that was like. Fly and on the radio and on TRL. And they were just, they were from the South, like me. And there was sort of all this, I related to them. I came into my womanhood listening to Destiny's Child and looking at their fashion. I had the loose braids that Beyoncé had. And then, as she matured and became Beyonce. There was this level of excellence that she began to really began to embody where it was just like became undeniably that she was the best at what she did. And when you're black, when you're a black person and when you're a black woman, you have to be very best at what you do. And so I aspire to that. And so with someone like Beyonce, It;s someone who makes me to aspire to that. You know. Aspire to be the very very best at being great. So needing her it's been almost twenty years of growing up with her. And all the inspiration. All the choreography. It was major."
