TIME Name Kanye West And…Kim Kardashian On ‘100 Most Influential People’ List

Published: Thursday 16th Apr 2015 by Sam

TIME Magazine has released the 2015 instalment of their 100 Most Influential People list and, as ever, the feature sets the stage for ample debate.

Indeed, the inclusion of a number of questionable names already has folk revolting – most especially Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

Granted Yeezy’s creative genius is as good as undeniable, he’s not released a body of work in the last twelve months and has instead been most notable for tabloid antics with his stunt queen. How any of this equates to “titan” appears to be baffling the masses.

In any case, peep more from the list below…


Kanye West
Tim Cook
Lee Daniels
Kim Kardashian
Bob Iger


Emma Watson
Reese Witherspoon
Laverne Cox


Bradley Cooper
Richard Linklater
Julianna Margulies
Amy Schumer
Alexander Wang
Jill Soloway
Chris Pratt
Audra McDonald
Tim McGraw
Kevin Hart
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Julianne Moore
Christopher Nolan


Angela Merkel
Vladimir Putin
Kim Jong Un
Hillary Clinton
Barack Obama


Taylor Swift

Pope Francis

    Kim Kardashian shouldn’t be anywhere on this damn list. Time lost ALL credibility. You have Alicia Keys with the no child left behind foundation. Rihanna with her Cancer foundation, and Beyonce with her Beygood foundation, also being a co-founder of Chime for Change and they put that white trash on the list!!!???

    • rosy April 16, 2015

      And you wonder why society f***** up time is losing their mind like vogue magazine they must need controversy to sell

  3. Skyfall April 16, 2015

    Tyler Swift an icon ???? I don’t care that she sells but where’s the impact? Yah act like she had an Thriller, Music Box, 21, or Bodyguard SLAYAGE. Speaking of Kim wtf and Kanye. .. okay I suppose for hip-hop standard.

  9. TheElusiveLamb April 16, 2015

    LOL ok TIME… I’m guessing they felt no one wanted to read an article about Camp Mariah donating millions of dollars over the last 20 years or Rihanna doing huge things for that Cancer Foundation, so they went for controversy instead. This list is hilarious.

  10. BeyIsKing April 16, 2015

    Uhm okay…this is a joke right? Kim Kardashian that narcissistic attention h** is on this list? Well Time just lost all credibility and respect. In what world is Taylor an icon? She sells really well, yes but icon? None of her songs are iconic! She’s ABOVE Malala!! What kind of fucckery is that? Good F****** Bye at this list Time

  11. BeyIsKing April 16, 2015
