TIME is out with its 2019 edition of the TIME 100, the magazine's picks for the 100 most influential figures in the world. Taylor Swift, Dwayne Johnson, Nancy Pelosi, Gayle King, Sandra Oh, and soccer star Mohamed Salah grace six different covers of the magazine's special issue, while inside, other celebs named to this year's list include Ariana Grande, Michelle Obama, Chrissy Teigen, BTS, Khalid, Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke, Brie Larson, Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines, Glenn Close, Rami Malek, LeBron James, Donald Trump, Mahershala Ali, Robert Mueller, Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell, Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh, and Kavanaugh's sexual-assault accuser, Christine Blasey Ford. The TIME 100 issue is renowned for getting other famous people to pen glowing odes to those named to the list. This year, for example, Shawn Mendes wrote about Swift, "Taylor makes anyone older feel young again and anyone young feel they can do anything." Meanwhile, Beyoncé wrote about Michelle Obama, "Loving Michelle Obama wasn’t much of a choice. It was something that came naturally."
