    How are these people influencial!?
    Amy Poehler? She’s super funny, but really?
    Justin Bieber is responsible for ruining children.
    Does anyone really know who Mia Wasikowska is?
    Bruno Mars is a crack head.
    Blake Lively??? What does she do besides pout?

  • toria

    Very sad when such no talents get recognized like this. Surely there are others out there who are more influential than Lively.

  • gg fan

    go Blake! you deserve it :)

  • Dany

    Sorry but the people who made that list need psychiatric treatment.

  • Helena

    Blake Lively is freaking beautiful ,but influential? How?

  • whizzer

    Blake Lively?! Really?! For what?! For showing off BRA-LESS &/OR PANTS-LESS on every red carpet events?! Please! Her name inclusion on the list is just hilarious!

  • Irena

    People need to look up the word ‘influential’ before ranting. Influence doesn’t mean good or bad.
    Amy Poelher is a comedian which ofcourse influences people and Bieber creates pop music (love it or hate it) and Blake Lively is known for her fashion trends

  • hilarious

    Lively on this list? For what? The only thing she deserves credit for is being famous without any talent. Maybe she won in the drag-queen looking `celeb` category.

  • brady

    Who?

  • Allie

    I love her but Blake should not have made that list. It’s almost embarrassing that she did. Lady Gaga din’t make the list, Charlie Sheen didn’t make the list. These people have way more of an influence on pop culture in the world.

    Maybe if she had some charity work or started a successful foundation this year but no. Having an awesome personality doesn’t mean you have influenced the world.

    When there’s only 100 people IN THE WORLD added to this list it’s sad that someone more deserving was bumped off to make room for her

    Ok at least Justin Bieber and Blake Lively are famous, but Mia Wasikowska???? Really??? It’s not even funny.

  • http://j carlota f.

    well, they certainly don’t influence me

  • QQQQ

    This list is a fcuking JOKE. In what world is Blake Lively, Matt Damon etc influential.

  • Leighton Meester

    Leighton Meester should be on this list

  • K

    I understand Bieber. He might not be influencing the world in the best way but he definitely has. The list isn’t “Best influences of 2011″ it’s just influences, so I get it. He’s a huge part of celebrity and the pop machine of today’s society. When you look back at this list you’ll remember what 2011 was like because of who influenced the world and I think he definitely has whether you like it or not. I personally am not a fan but I do understand why he’s on the list

  • Guys, It’s fan voted. As usual South Korean pop star and actor Rain is on top. Do you even know who he is? If you think other people should be nominated then vote next year. I personally don’t vote because I always see this list as somewhat of a joke anyway.

  • YEAAAAAAAAHHHH

    Influences little girls to get nose jobs and breast implants? sorry but not sure what she’s done this year/ her lifetime to influence the world

  • bogtrotter

    If Blake LIvely is on the list, “”Rebecca Black of Friday”" fame should or more like “must” be there on the list next year…

  • jaye

    Do they just pull these names out of hat? I don’t know what has become of the Times, it use to be a respectable and reliable Magazine. This truly is a joke.

  • Regina

    watever guys.. Blake lively did something
    and she’s famous either way, it could have been worse if Charlie Sheen was included- maybe they should make a magazine bout cracking celebrities for the likes of Lindsay Lohans of the world..

  • S@n

    Really?
    Another silly list of the year!

  • Joanna

    blake lively? what did she influence??

  • Mlllef

    lol….you’re riiight !

  • Dasha

    LMAO this list is the biggest joke ever!! Blake Lively really? Don’t get me wrong i have nothing against her but what did she do to influence people? The only things she does are wearing gorgeous dresses and shoes and smiles at photographers!!! I was wrong it’s not funny it’s sad…

  • WTF

    @Leighton Meester:
    She’ll never been on this list

  • Jenna

    It doesn’t mean influence the world in a good way. Charlie Sheen is much more deserving than Blake Lively. At least he’s been in the news and we’ll never forget his crazy ass, that would be considered influential. Not in a good way but he’s made “WINNING” a pop culture reference.

  • sx2

    Blake Llively?! What exactly has she influenced?

  • kaizen

    WTF?! This list has lost all legitmacy, wtf is Blake Lively doing on this list? Really?! How embarassing!

  • Gabby

    Blake Lively? I seriously start giggling whenever I hear this.

  • Andrew

    Shame on “Time ” Magazine ….this magazine is not value as i think .

  • In The Know

    People wake up………Magazines are a dying business……….they have to go for the lowest common denominator in order to prolong their death knell.

    Its all about generating numbers.

    Zuckerberg is influential, Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are influential.

    B-C-and D List entertainment industry zero’s within their 15 minutes …..are not.

  • Eric

    Blake Lively – Um, what has she done that was influential. She’s a decent actress who is very beautiful. Don’t get it.

    Justin Bieber – Yeahh, he is the one artist in all of US that has no talent at all. He makes music about “love,” cause you know, he knows so much about it. Not influential.

    Bruno Mars – Crack head. Enough said.

    Mia Wasikowska – Does anybody even know who she is?

    Amy Poehler – Cause being funny makes you influential? Sure, okay.

    Chris Colfer – For what, being against bullying and standing up for gays? Tons of people do that.

    This list is a complete joke. Ridiculous.

  • laverdadduele

    This list is the stupidest thing ever. I mean, Justin Bieber? REALLY?

  • Ohaihai

    To the people who said Matt Damon or even Justin Bieber don’t deserve to be on this list, are mistaken.
    Matt Damon did influence a lot this year, he has helped thousands of kids in Africa, who die because unfortunately, there is no clean water in their countries; he helped the world and did not wore expensive and stylish clothes to get into this list, unlike Blake Lively.
    And it’s true Justin Bieber, is what 16? and his music may not appeal to everyone, but the only thing I could hear this past year is Justin Bieber, everywhere, his songs, his face, his lovers and haters, it’s crazy and I do think he was very influential, especially with the girls.
    Blake Lively in the other hand, has not done one influential action to the world, but look pretty and smile at the cameras, nor she’s a good actress, so I have no idea, what in the world she’s doing in this list.
    I figured now, that ‘influential’ is just another word for ‘celebrity’ nowadays, as she is not the only one who’s not deserving of a spot in this list.

  • Ohaihai

    I meant ‘influential people’.

  • Roberta

    I really don’t know what to say!!!!!! This list is a complet joke to me. I agree with some of the names, but others i really don’t understand. Blake lively, justin bieber, bruno mars, rain… and so on. How this people got in there, where are Bono, Jon Bon Jovi, Madonna, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, people who actually do something good for society. Time magazine must really be on crack when they created this list. Amazing how many people they got wrong. And maybe, and hopefully, next year justin bieber won’t even be around…..

  • must watch
  • Stacey Sunshine

    He is an inspiration and LatinoMatch.net was amazing

  • Robin

    leighton is way more influential than blake!!

  • Jim Beam

    I noticed that a lot of the people who made the list last year are not on this year’s list. Seriously, Blake Lively?? I saw this girl do an interview once and I couldn’t stand her voice. She was beyond annoying.

  • kerri

    Why Blake lively? CONGRATS TO PRINCE WILLIAM AND KATE!!!!! they deserve it NOT BLAKE LIVELY.

  • Annie

    Blake Lively……..????????????/
    Blake lively it so funny!!!!
    But Leighton Meester -zgadzam się

  • anne

    Whoever came up with this list needs to be shot. This is one hell of a stupid list. Blake Lively?! Wtf did she do? She is a nobody to me. I wish the media would stop giving her so much attention when she does not deserve it at all.

  • J

    Wow there are a lot of Liberals here seems biased.

  • Tantoun

    blake is Influential , she is a great , sweet down to earth person plus she is talented really if you have seen her in other than her Gossip girl rule .. the private lives of pipa lee or the town … you would see that she can pull off rules like that … blake is not serena people … I really wish you would see that … she is way more fun , goofy and sweet !! <3 ask anyone who met her !! … for me ? im 23 and she makes me believe that everything is possible !! she is such an inspiration to me to be this young yet this successful ! <3 … thats my opinion of course …

  • Chunkyyy

    Bieber is a joke, even he does influence somehow but totally in a bad way that’s for sure.. I could never understand when I saw those teenage girls screaming crying over him..
    No comment about others..

  • Wave

    I’m Agree with Mark Wahlberg!

  • b
