It’s that Time of the year again for Time Magazine‘s ninth annual 100 most influential people in the word list for 2012.
Check out below a few of the people who made the list:
Of those who received the honor (which is broken down into five categories: Moguls, Breakouts, Icons, Pioneers and Leaders) are President Barack Obama, Warren Buffett, Mitt Romney, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Hillary Clinton, Ron Paul, Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel, managing director of the International Monetary Fund Christine Lagarde, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton, NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, Rihanna, Chelsea Handler, Claire Danes, Kristen Wiig, Louis C.K., Stephen Colbert, Jeremy Lin and Viola Davis.
Every year, Time magazine asks well-known figures to write the entries for the new list of influential people. Here are a few quotables:
Rihanna by Stella McCartney: “She’s one of the coolest, hottest, most talented, most liked, most listened to, most followed, most impressive artists at work today, but she does it in her own stride…. This is the beginning for Rihanna…. She is just getting going, so watch out. ”
Tim Tebow by Jeremy Lin: “[Tim] is unashamed of his convictions and faith, and he lives a life that consistently reflects his values, day in and day out…. As athletes, we pour our hearts into winning games. Tim is a reminder that life is about much more than that.”
