The 2012 Time 100

The annual Time 100 List, which seeks to gather the most influential people from around the world, has been announced. This year’s list features 38 women — the most ever — and as always, famous people showering other famous people with love. Below are a few highlights.

  • Tim Tebow not only uses the word “bling” when writing about Jeremy Lin, he tosses in “glam” as well. Jesus was not available for comment at press time.
  • Joan Rivers calls Louis CKSteven Spielberg without the beard and with humor.” So Spielberg is just a bearded, unfunny man. Got it.
  • Stella McCartney thinks that Rihanna’s best times are ahead of her, which probably isn’t that far off, because at some point you have to imagine that Rihanna will get her hair situation figured out. After that? Sky’s the limit.
  • Judd Apatow says that Kristen Wiig was “explosive and hilarious” in “Bridesmaids,” and we couldn’t agree more. We might have picked another adjective aside from “explosive,” considering that one scene in the movie, but hey, no big deal.
