How Influential is Davie Bowie?
Time magazine is famous for publishing its annual Time 100 issue, which pays homage to a variety of luminaries from different industries that the magazine names “the most influential people in the world.” Now, the magazine is letting readers vote on who they think should make this year’s top 100, and when it comes to musicians, David Bowie is among the candidates.
Bowie is really the only rocker in the running, as the rest of the nominees from the music industry include Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Jay-Z, Frank Ocean, PSY and Sharon Jones.
Celebrities outside of the music world up for the honors include Pope Francis, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Aung San Suu Kyi, Ben Affleck, LeBron James, Serena Williams, Tina Fey & Amy Poehler, Jimmy Kimmel, George Lucas, Quentin Tarantino, Jon Hamm and Paula Deen, among others. Voting runs through April 12, and the top 100 will be announced on April 18.
