100 Most Influential People in the World

Time magazine revealed its annual list of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” on Thursday.

Oscar winner Viola Davis, Grammy winner John Legend, rapper and actor Riz Ahmed, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and philanthropist Melinda Gates graced the five different covers of this year’s issue. Once again, Pope Francis and President Donald Trump made the list in the “Leaders” category, while Tom Brady and Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel nabbed space in the “Titans” section. The “Icons” category ranges from Olympian Simone Biles to plus-size model Ashley Graham.

Each honoree was the subject of an essay written by another famous figure. For instance, Taylor Swift praised Ed Sheeran for his “impenetrable and ever-present armor of enthusiasm” that helps him through ups and downs.
