Selena Gomez, Megan Thee Stallion, and More Are Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020

Selena Gomez, Megan Thee Stallion, The Weeknd, and more have been named the Time100 list of the most influential people in the world in 2020.

America Ferrara wrote a sweet tribute to Selena praising her friend:

“Selena Gomez is unabashedly spreading her wings and influence into whatever lane her passions lead her. She has always been a great musician, but she’s also always been more than her music. Selena courageously uses her global platform in service of her full identity. She is emblematic of her powerful generation, which patently rejects the notion that they belong in any one lane as artists, activists or citizens of the world.”

Taraji P. Henson praised Megan Thee Stallion’s ability to shine without compromising her individuality and varied passions.

“It’s invigorating to see her become a platinum-selling artist with the viral hit “Hot Girl Summer” and multiple No. 1 songs in the past year, ‘Savage’ and ‘WAP,’ But you would be a fool to think that’s all there is to her. She’s deep. She’s enrolled in college. She’s an entertainer. She’s a free spirit; I see that in her. The industry might try to pigeonhole her in this rap game, but she’s got a plan that’s much bigger. And we got her. I just want her to keep winning.”

Elton John wrote about The Weeknd saying, “Like Prince, he marches to his own beat. That’s an exemplary way for an artist to be.”

The Time100 list also honored Dr. Anthony Fauci, tennis player Naomi Osaka, Donald Trump, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Black Lives Matter founders Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi. See the full list, tributes, and photos here.
