TIME Magazine put out their “Most Influential Icon” (of the last decade) list out and take the #2 spot is Lady Gaga, with Barack Obama right behind her. The #1 Most Influential person is politician Aung San Suu Kyi.
It would help to know what their criteria is and what they consider “influential.” In terms of pop culture, music, and fashion, yeah Lady Gaga is definitely more influential than the President of the United States. They say it’s by who has “had the most impact on our world over the last decade.” Oh, okay, thanks for the specificities.
Others honored in entertainment are Tina Fey, George Clooney, and J.K. Rowling.
It’s worth mentioning that TIME didn’t exactly choose these on their own. They came up with a list of people they deemed influential and then asked the public to vote. So that explains a lot. She has a lot of fans who really love her, and she loves them right back.
And hey, it could be worse. At least they didn’t include Bieber this time.

“had the most impact on our world over the last decade.”? Obama obviously influences society more with his political power. I’d think his nearly trillion dollar bail out of the banksters influenced society and our economy. I’ll stop there. They are sniffing nail polish at TIME.
Well, as is pointed out, the list was made after an online vote/poll was posted by Time. It’s not their fault rabid Gaga fans probably flooded the site to vote as much as possible.
Justin Bieber influences everything I do. WWJBD?
:D LOL You Belieber!
How sad that these are the names they came up with as the most influential people having the most impact on our world. Bugs Bunny has more influence over me than they do.
