Gullible

Do re really have to go through this again?

Time magazine recently came up with a list of the 100 most influential people.  Beyonce made the list, and made the cover.

Some people were outraged.

Give me a break.

Time is in the business of selling magazines.  Controversy sells magazines.  Just about every magazine does a list once in a while.  They're meant for you to talk about and argue over.  And if you're talking and arguing about Time, it's money in the company's bank.

By the way, remember the days when Time and Newsweek were "must reads?"  Time is striving for relevance, and if putting Beyonce in the cover helps keep it alive, it has my blessing.

As for Beyonce on the list..  Yes, pop stars are influential.  If you think otherwise, you apparently never walked through a shopping mall when Britney Spears was at her peak.
