There are social media influencers and then there are INFLUENCERS!

Time magazine has come out with their annual list of the 100 Most Influential People and it features mainstays like Oprah Winfrey, heads of state and breakout divas like Tiffany Haddish and Cardi B. #MoneyMoves

The iconic list is broken into the categories of pioneers, artists, leaders, icons and titans.

In addition to being recognized for her ascent to the top of the Hollywood food chain, Haddish (pioneer) also lands one of the six coveted covers along with Jennifer Lopez (icon), Nicole Kidman (artist), #MeToo founder Tarana Burke (icon), Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella (leader) and Tennis star Roger Federer (titan).

Each of the 100 influential peeps gets a short profile written by one of their famous peers.

Kevin Hart writes about Haddish, Taraji P. Henson takes on Cardi B (pioneer), while Haddish does double duty by raving about the Big O (titan).

“I’ve been watching Oprah since I was 7. In my eyes, she’s my auntie. I call her Auntie O,” Haddish says about Winfrey. “I remember coming home from school, putting on The Oprah ­Winfrey Show and feeling like I could achieve anything I put my mind to. Oprah had the roughest childhood and has gone through all these difficulties. But no matter what, she stays focused on her goals and achieves them. She made her dreams come true. And because I watched her, I did too.”

Other names on the 100 Most Influential list include Rihanna, Black Panther direct Ryan Coogler, Prince Harry & Meghan Markle, Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon, Roseanne Barr, Jimmy Kimmel and Robert Mueller.

The Parkland High School students (pioneers) also make the list and get their essay written by President Barack Obama.

“Our history is defined by the youthful push to make America more just, more compassionate, more equal under the law. This generation—of Parkland, of Dreamers, of Black Lives Matter—embraces that duty. If they make their elders uncomfortable, that’s how it should be. Our kids now show us what we’ve told them America is all about, even if we haven’t always believed it ourselves: that our future isn’t written for us, but by us.”
