Time Magazine recently revealed their Time 100 for 2011, the magazine’s eighth annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, which includes Canada’s biggest pop star, one of America’s biggest TV stars … and a “Gossip Girl”-turned-big screen leading lady.
Hollywood notables littered the coveted list this year, including Justin Bieber, Chris Colfer, Blake Lively, Oprah Winfrey, Amy Poehler, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, Colin Firth, “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner, Prince William and Kate Middleton, Bruno Mars, Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg and designer Tom Ford.
“From the minute I met Justin, I knew this kid possessed a certain confidence that only a star could have,” Usher told Time of his friend and pop protégé, Bieber. “What’s interesting and will keep the world watching is that at the same time he’s having this incredible success, he’s like any other kid living a normal life.”
A lot of powerful people on that list. Oprah alone probably makes what half of the entire list makes in a year. Sweet!
