Kanye West & Bradley Cooper Cover Time's 100 Most Influential People - See Who Else Made the List!

Kanye West and Bradley Cooper take the cover of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People issue – both guys made the coveted list this year for their impact.

Also receiving separate covers were Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, ballet dancer Misty Copeland, and journalist Jorge Ramos.

Kanye West would be the first person to tell you he belongs on this list. The dude doesn’t believe in false modesty, and he shouldn’t. Kanye‘s belief in himself and his incredible tenacity”he performed his first single with his jaw wired shut”got him to where he is today,” Elon Musk, an entrepreneur, wrote about Kanye.

“It’s hard to make people, especially your friends, forget who you are onscreen. But Bradley‘s that good. And I think we’ve seen only a hint of what’s to come,” actor Oliver Platt wrote about Bradley.

    Time’s Most Influential = the celebrities who have the most aggressive PR people.

  • cee

    influences Who?

    Time is a terrible magazine. Has been a pseudo newsworthy portal for years. Passes out the odd gem amongst the turds occasionally, though.

  • shoes4life

    Time magazine has sunk to the lowest of low. What has Kanye and his trash Kim K. influenced other than the stupidity that follows them.

  • Daniel Brown

    It’s all about the PR. Suddenly Nicki Minaj has her engagement all blinged over instagram I’m sure she was told to post it.

  • Lisa

    I don’t think I will like to be on any list Kanye West is on. He is a big mouth and corporate America is buying it.

  • narduaw

    Okay TIME is done for sure. Kanye West and Kim K???? These 2 are horrible people and Kim especially. What has she done to be called influential? I remember Americans were angry at Sarah Palin on this list some years ago. Atleast Palin is a politcian, what is Kim? A porn star??? D list reality tv show hack?? F–king unbelievable.
    This makes me glad I cancelled my subscription to TIME.

  • wikimètis

    Times most irrelevant magazine around. Brad cooper? Kayne biggest clown around?

  • RayonLight

    Congratulations to Jorge Ramos, this recognition is well deserved and long overdue.

  • Angelica

    Haha Kim K isn’t even world famous, so how can she be even called one of the most influential people in the world? The Israeli magazine that cut her out didn’t even refer to her by her name. She was called Mr. West wife.
    Seriosuly, you think girls in African countries or some country like India would know who she is and would want to be like her? As if. Time has really disgraced themselves with this one.

  • JustThat

    How about Angelina Jolie??
    Every post about her is BIG and her life in general has influenced many !

  • lurker

    kim k bye time

  • niagirl


  • SkinnyFat

    Time magazine is irrelevant.

  • SkinnyFat

    Unfortunately she is probably one of the most famous women in the world right now.

  • ceeza

    but u commented tho

  • beara

    What has Kanye influenced besides ignorance & annoyance?

  • Baseliner

    can we start putting names of doctors and other people who are actually making a difference in the world

  • Maria E. Segura

    For sure

  • Maria E. Segura

    Ohh I bet Kim momma, pimp Kris may had had something to do with it. I bt she paid all the important magazines people so Kim or her husband douche kanye will appear in all. I mean they were in Vogue and after that now they are appearing in many popular magazines.

  • JJ

    What influence does Kim K have – by showing her big broad ass? And Amy Schumer who resorts to demeaning people for attention. Time, I’ll pass on this!

  • mandyz

    And boring

  • lele

    congrats for COOPER

  • damian gonzales

    I’m just going to write this. the fact that these people are considered influential only shows that this nation is so decadent. but I’m writing? this magazine does not represent all this nation only mediocre side

  • Tiguerroughpath

    I most belive this guy kanye paid a lot for him and his wife!

  • Guest

    ★★★★ I RECEIVED FIRST DRAFT OF $13000!@ak15:



  • PlayNice

    Such a pathetic list. How about people who make an actual difference in our world?? Not people who pay PR teams and create “art” and auto-tuned “music” to satisfy their need for attention.

  • Headless Jimmy

    Most Influential? These two d**kheads??

  • Badly Creeper

    Who has Bradley Creeper influenced? People in Hollywood whose azzes he kisses?Lolita?His ugly 20 yer old talentless daughter?

  • Lionel Leutz

    Wow that’s ironic..
    Growing up I always looked up to TIME mag like it was a respectable source. I would love to hear them try to explain why some of these people are on this HORRIBLE list.
    I guess “influential” doesn’t have to mean good..
    I could go on and on about how ridiculous Kim K being on here.
    She got her whole family famous by filming herself have sex with a d-list rapper.
    SMH KMN.
    Influences young people to worry how they look and want fat a**ess and lips?
    What could possibly be influential about her!?
    The only people I ever see stick up for them on the internet,
    are the one’s who illiterately say
    “Your all r juss haterrz!”
    Influential to little wh*res world wide?

  • J Gurl

    Time was once a respectable magazine.

  • Zoee


  • dalovelee

    For the love of God in what way does Kanye West or Bradley Cooper influence people?

  • Adrianna

    His work with veterans, not his personal life.

  • Courtney

    Kanye West? Kim Kardashian? Are you running out of people, Time, or did you not bother to look hard to find the truly influential people?

  • Becca

    totally a lack of respect! ….. what’s next? vote kardashians for presidents?

  • Courtney

    Tell me about it. *smh*

  • BC wants to be Leo

    Fake Bradley only speaks about veterans to promote himself and movie to make money. He is a loser.

  • BC wants to be Leo

    I agree. The man child is very fake. He only cares about himself. He pretends to care about veterans to make money and to get an oscar. He did not get the oscar!!

  • xvlmxxx

    That’s right! Kim IS a porn star. Famous for absolutely NOTHING but her porn video. And Kanye is not even talented. Both of them needs to fade away for good. I feel sorry for their daughter to have such parents.

  • xvlmxxx

    agreed! I never get the fuss about him.

  • narduaw

    Exactly. Kim is a glorified porn star who has become a famous figure for having done nothing! Can Time even name one big accomplishment she had done? No they can’t. Because she has’t achieved anything in life at all!
    Kanye started out okay, but the dude is known for being a assh.ole who runs who ugly mouth all the time. This is a digrace for Time magazine. Shame on all the people who used to attack Sarah Palin for making the list, but folks are okay with this BS of having a porn star as one of the most influential people? Having a rude, egostical nasty ugly rap star who disses other musicans as one o fthe most influneital people?
    If Time considers the influence of making a porn tape and bullying other people in work work as ‘influential”, then they in my opion are a useless publication. I will say it again, I am glad i no longer subcribe to them!

  • narduaw

    Kim ins’t all that famous around the world. My British cousins don’t know who she is. Not everyone knows who they are. Thank god for that.

  • JC

    Since when did TIME turn into THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER?

  • b324

    David and Charles Koch by Rand Paul. Excuse me while I puke. Now add in Kim and Kanye. And Bradley Cooper gets a cover? Oh Time Time Time, what is wrong with you.

  • Anna Lee

    Bradley Cooper being in the biggest movie of 2014 doesn’t make him influential. That was the movie and the over-hyped controversy, not Cooper. Kanye, love him or not, like most people like him he does evoke a response and he has made that wife of his a huge cross over star getting her on Vogue and being respected by designers. I guess Kim K is a model, but she does influence tons of people. If she posts a thumb on her Instagram, she gets over 800k hits per ET. I don’t get it, but clearly millions do. Although I like a lot of the people on the list, I don’t see them influencing me in any way. Well, Taylor’s style is cool to most of the people in my age group, so I get that one.

  • FlakesofSunlite

    If Kanye West is higher on the list then Elon Musk, then the world is ending.

  • FlakesofSunlite

    I would bet Kanye West would say he is the inspiration of the Space-X Rocketships
