Time magazine has released their list of the 100 most influential people in the world, and of course, most of it is based on politicians, activists and heroes, but this is a gossip blog, so clearly we don’t care about any of them. Who are the celebrities that made the list?! Well, among others, Glee‘s Chris Colfer made the list (yay!), Justin Bieber is on there (boo!) and Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively made it on there too somehow ( … yay? I guess?)
Many Hollywood notables made 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.”
Glee’s Dianna Agron spoke highly of her co-star, Colfer, telling the mag, “Chris, 20, lives by extreme truth, speaking out against the epidemic of bullying that he, too, faced in high school. The honesty that he infuses into his Glee character, Kurt, leaves you reeling.” SOURCE
So basically, if you’re keep track here, Chris Colfer made the list because he’s the biggest representation of gay youth in America today and is using his position to try and end bullying. Meanwhile, Justin Bieber made the list despite being a selfish little shit, all because he can convince a legion of stupid teenage girls to buy anything with his face on it *slow clap* way to go, Time. Although I’m still really not sure how Blake Lively made the list. Nice tits? Yeah, let’s just go with that.
