TIME magazine's annual 'Most Influential People' list for 2016 has been revealed, with 100 people from the world of music, business politics, media, film and more chosen as those who hold the most sway in public life.
The musicians that made this year's list include Adele, Ariana Grande, Kendrick Lamar and Nicki Minaj.
They rub shoulders with the likes of Pope Francis, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, golfer Jordan Spieth, actor Leonardo DiCaprio and US presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Each entry was accompanied by an explanatory piece penned by a well-known name; in Adele's case, actress Jennifer Lawrence gushed about how the singer "is a gift, an international treasure, but she’s also sweet, funny, intelligent and beautiful. Bitch."
Lil Wayne wrote Nicki Minaj's entry, saying of her: "She’s an icon, a boss and a role model to all these young girls out here on how to do it the right way. Her work ethic speaks volumes and has yielded these results. The scary thing is she’s still going. Ha! Nicki Minaj will go down as one of the best to do it in the history of music."
The entry for Kendrick Lamar was written by Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza, who praised his evolution of a "new genre of movement music that asserts no answers but raises hard questions and brings us together to take them on", while composer and playwright Jason Robert Brown warned people to underestimate Ariana Grande at their peril.
Rapper Kanye West, meanwhile, was somewhat conspicuously left out of the Top 100, the full list of which can be seen here.
