TIME Magazine has announced their Top 100 Most Influential People of 2023, including Jennifer Coolidge, Doja Cat, Michael B. Jordan and Salman Rushdie.


TIME Magazine has published its list of the 100 Most Influential People of 2023, which includes actor Jennifer Coolidge, recording artist Doja Cat, CEO of The Walt Disney Company Bob Iger, writer Salman Rushdie, and actor Michael B. Jordan.

There is no particular order to the rankings, but they have handily separated the chosen ones in six categories: Artists, Icons, Pioneers, Leaders, Titans, and Innovators. Each profile has been written by guest contributors.

More confusingly, there are only 96 names ranked, not the promised 100.

TIME Chief Executive Officer Jessica Sibley said: "We are thrilled to recognize this year's list of the world's most influential people. We look forward to convening the TIME100 community—one of the largest leadership communities in the world—to spotlight and hear from individuals who are wielding their influence to drive positive action toward a better world at the TIME100 Summit Featuring TIME CO2 and Gala this month in New York City."

We’re guessing they are saving the last four for either the annual TIME Summit, which takes place on 25 April or the TIME 100 Gala on 26 April (which will be available to stream on Hulu and Disney+ on 30 April). The gala will be hosted by Jennifer Coolidge, and feature performances by Doja Cat and Lea Michele, as well as honorary tributes from members of this year's list.

The 2023 TIME100 features 16 climate leaders, a record number for the list, including Anthony Albanese, Gustavo Petro, Catherine Coleman Flowers, Elizabeth Maruma Mrema, Robin Zeng and more.

Athletes on this year's list include Patrick Mahomes II, Lionel Messi, Brittney Griner, Iga Swiatek, Kylian Mbappé and Mikaela Shiffrin.

This year's list features 50 women, including Jennifer Coolidge, Beyoncé, Laurene Powell Jobs, Karen Lynch, Kate Orff, Colleen Hoover, Brittney Griner, Oleksandra Matviichuk, Cindy McCain, Sarah Kate Ellis, Angela Bassett, Bella Hadid and others.

Joe Biden is on the list for the 6th time, more than any other person on the list this year. Other repeats include Elon Musk (5), Janet Yellen (4), Lionel Messi (3), Beyoncé (3), Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (3) and Mitch McConnell (3).

Polish tennis player Iga Swiatek, 21 years old, is the youngest person on this year's list. The oldest person on this year's list is American writer Judy Blume, who is 85 years old.
