TIME 100 Most Influential People 2020 Revealed
TIME magazine has unveiled its annual TIME 100 most influential people in the world. Notable figures in the music and movie industries include The Weeknd, Megan Thee Stallion, Billy Porter, Tyler Perry and Michael B. Jordan. Guest contributors include Denzel Washington, Oprah Winfrey, Taylor Swift, Lena Waithe, Kim Kardashian West, Melinda Gates and Common among others.
The magazine has also unveiled eight issue covers with each highlighting a member of the TIME100 – Includes Gabrielle Union, Dwyane Wade, The Weeknd and Megan.
“This year’s list looks far different than any of us could have predicted just six months ago. The TIME 100 has always been a mirror of the world and those who shape it. While you will certainly find people who wield traditional power on this year’s list—heads of state, CEOs, major entertainers—it also includes many extraordinary, lesser-known individuals who seized the moment to save lives, build a movement, lift the spirit, repair the world…. Their work challenges each of us”, said Edward Felsenthal, TIME CEO and Editor in Chief.

‘The Glorias’ Trailer Released
Amazon Prime has released a new trailer for upcoming film “The Glorias”, starring Julianne Moore and Alicia Vikander. Based on Gloria Steinem’s book, My Life on the Road, the Julie Taymor-directed biopic centers around the feminist icon’s itinerant childhood influence on her life as a writer, activist and organizer for women’s rights worldwide.
The official synopsis reads: Journalist, fighter, and feminist Gloria Steinem is an indelible icon known for her world-shaping activism, guidance of the revolutionary women’s movement, and writing that has impacted generations. In this nontraditional biopic, Julie Taymor crafts a complex tapestry of one of the most inspirational and legendary figures of modern history, based on Steinem’s own biographical book ‘My Life on the Road.’ THE GLORIAS (Julianne Moore, Alicia Vikander, Lulu Wilson, Ryan Keira Armstrong) traces Steinem’s influential journey to prominence—from her time in India as a young woman, to the founding of Ms. magazine in New York, to her role in the rise of the women’s rights movement in the 1960s, to the historic 1977 National Women’s Conference and beyond.
“The Glorias” debuts on the streaming service September 30th,2020.
