Time’s 100 Most Influential People

Time announced today its annual list of the 100 Most Influential people on the planet and, well, it's a bit of a joke. But we mean that in a really good way!

After all, among those who made the cut include such funny folks as Kristen Wiig, Louis C.K., Stephen Colbert and our very own Chelsea Handler.

Other celebs recognized include Adele, Claire Danes, Viola Davis, Matt Lauer, Tilda Swinton, Rihanna, Tim Tebow as well as Kate Middleton and her sister, Pippa.

And as they do every year, the magazine asks other famous faces to share a few kind words about those being honored.

For instance, Pink notes that Adele's success "renews hope in me that the world I live in has good taste—that we occasionally come back to what's simple, and simply amazing."

Fashion designer Stella McCartney points out that Rihanna is "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."

And fellow athlete Jeremy Lin has this to say about Tebow: "[Tim] is unashamed of his convictions and faith, and he lives a life that consistently reflects his values, day in and day out."

Get the whole list, which also includes a bunch of politicians, business peeps and world leaders, at Time.com.
