2012 Time 100

Time magazine just released its annual list of the 100 Most Influential People who "inspire us, entertain us, challenge us and change our world."

British soul singer Adele made it onto the prestigious Time 100 list. U.K. royal Kate Middleton, a.k.a. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is also a new name in the lineup following her wedding to Prince William last year. Her sister Pippa Middleton, who was recently embroiled in a gun/paparazzi controversy, surprisingly made the cut.
Bajan popstar Rihanna, movie executive Harvey Weinstein and President Barack Obama are also included on the 2012 list. Actresses recognized by the magazine include Viola Davis, Jessica Chastain, Tilda Swinton and Claire Danes. TV personalities Matt Lauer, Stephen Colbert and Chelsea Handler are also included.
