Time Magazine has released their list for this year’s 100 Most Influential People in the World. Amongst heroes and politicians, we found two New.Music.Live staples, Adele and Rihanna. The list is interesting because not only do we have a collection of important people, but we have equally as important people writing about them. Commenting on the reach of Adele’s influence P!nk noted, “Turn on any radio station in the world and you will probably hear Adele. Go to Mars right now and I’m pretty sure if there is life on that planet, they’re playing Adele. And for good reason.” P!nk continued, “I’m always so happy when the world catches on to something great. Especially when it’s authentic talent, great songwriting and a unique package. I am so relieved that Adele possesses the kind of beauty that she does, that she’s crass and funny and that she sings live — and incredibly.”
Rihanna is no stranger to similar praise. Fashion designer and offspring of a Beatle, Stella McCartney told Time what makes Rihanna so special explaining that, “Rihanna, 24, goes out of her way to support the people she believes in. She is one of the few people I know in that world of fame and celebrity who aren’t all about themselves. She’ll give a real part of herself to an ordinary person she may meet, and that’s rare.”
We have Adele’s massive hit video, Rolling in the Deep that you can watch while you think about who influences you in your life. Sound off in the comments section below.Tweet
