TIME Magazine has released its annual “The 100 Most Influential People” list for 2014.

Among the list are world leaders such as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Kirsten Gillibrand and Chile President Anat Admati, entertainers Pharrell Williams and Miley Cyrus and businessmen like Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick.


Topping the list, surprisingly, is Beyonce. “Shooting for TIME magazine was eventually one of the goals in my life,” she revealed. “It’s something important for me as an artist because it’s not about fashion or beauty or music. It’s about the influence I’ve had on culture and to be amongst the other influential people is a huge honor for me.”
