Taylor Swift and Lea Michele Make Time's 'Most Influential' List
The master list is broken down into four categories -- leaders, heroes, thinkers and artists. In the artist section, Taylor, 20, is mentioned for her outstanding songwriting skills and cross-generational appeal. Her accompanying article was written by the legendary Stevie Nicks with whom she performed at the 2010 Grammys.
Lea's mention reps the entire cast of Glee. The 24-year-old actress/singer earned her spot on the list for playing Rachel Berry so convincingly, and being a great role model. The New York native has inspired kids to get involved in their school music programs, and has encouraged people to help maintain funding for the curriculum.
