The reputable publication places Adele and Rihanna among an elite group of highly influential individuals. P!nk and Stella McCartney revealed their adoration, respectively, for the Grammy-winning divas in the article.
“I’m always so happy when the world catches on to something great,” P!nk gushes about Adele. “Especially when it’s authentic talent, great songwriting and a unique package. I am so relieved that Adele possesses the kind of beauty that she does, that she’s crass and funny and that she sings live — and incredibly. Her success renews hope in me that the world I live in has good taste — that we still occasionally come back to what’s simple, and simply amazing.”
“She’s one of the coolest, hottest, most talented, most liked, most listened to, most followed, most impressive artists at work today,” fashion designer Stella McCartney says about Rihanna. She continues, “but she does it in her own stride. She works hard, very hard. She gives to her fans, friends and foundation not just herself but her energy and spirit.
She is one of the few people I know in that world of fame and celebrity who aren’t all about themselves. She’ll give a real part of herself to an ordinary person she may meet, and that’s rare.”
Other notables that made the list are President Barack Obama, Oscar-nominated actress Viola Davis and acclaimed soul singer Raphael Saadiq.
