TIME magazine has shared its fourteenth annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, and it includes a clutch of familiar faces.
Raf Simons, Chance the Rapper, James Corden, Conor McGregor, Donald Glover, Neymar, Alessandro Michele, and LeBron James are but some of the stars to feature. Each of those listed were plucked from five separate categories: pioneers, artists, leaders, titans, and icons.
Furthermore, each inclusion has been given a written testimonial by another A-lister. “I feel like Raf Simons is important for the culture based on the fact that he built a whole new religion around fashion,” says A$AP Rocky of Simons, while Tina Fey claims that Glover is currently serving up “best-case-scenario millennial realness.”
Additional tributes come from *deep breath* David Beckham (on Neymar), Common (on Chance the Rapper), DJ Khaled (on Evan Spiegel), Tim Cook (on Jean Liu) and Taylor Swift (on Ed Sheeran).
From the political world, President Trump has been included for the second time, while China leader Xi Jinping makes his eighth appearance — more than anybody else on the list.
Notably, there’s once again no space for Kanye West, who was last included in 2016 with an endorsement from Elon Musk. Kendrick Lamar also drops out despite featuring last year.
