NEW YORK, NY – Out of the billions of people on the planet, who would you say are the most influential?

Time Magazine has rounded up 100 people from artists and leaders to pioneers, titans and icons.

We don’t have time to name them all, so here are a few standouts.

We begin with the leader of the free world.

President Barack Obama made the list for the eighth time, more than any other person on the list. First Lady Michelle Obama got a big pat on the back for her fight against childhood obesity, keeping true to herself and for having a sense of humor.

Lately we can’t mention this power couple without mentioning their BFF’s–Jay-Z and Beyonce.

Jay-Z, one of Time’s ‘Titans’ made the cover. Beyonce AKA ‘Queen Bey’ makes the list for being a pop-culture icon.

Wonder if they’re lightin’ up a Cuban in celebration!

Out of the 35 women who made the list, two stand out for their bravery.

Malala Yousafzai — the teen girl shot in the head by the Taliban, just for wanting an education.

And former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords — a shooting victim who is now taking on gun control.

On the other end of that fight — NRA boss man Wayne LaPierre.

This next person rules from the barrel of a gun.

Kim Jong Un.

Lil Kim is the world’s youngest head of state, and pretty much acts like it too!

Speaking of dropping bombs, Christina Aguilera made the list.

Not quite sure what she’s influenced us to do besides press the mute button.
