Stars attend Time's 100 Most Influential People Party!

Global stars around the world attended Time's 100 Most Influential People Party Last week. Being included in Time's 100 Most Influential People list is a huge honour for an individual because Time's lists are highly regarded.

A diverse group of people were recognised for their influence this year.
Included in the list are World Leaders (Barack Obama), Politicians (Hillary Clinton), Royalty (Prince William), Comedians (Amy Poehler) to Popstars (Justin Bieber).

Prior to Time's official list being revealed, an online polling was conducted on Time's website allowing for readers to poll who they thought was the Most Influential Person of 2011. For the duration of the polling, Korean Sensation Rain was leading the poll with a wide margin of votes. When polling ended, Rain was voted No. 1. It was no surprise that Rain was included in the Official Time's List.

Rain tweeted photos of him attending the event and expressed his excitement about meeting Sting.

Tweet via @29rain: “This man knows me even had a meal with me…. Here is Sting, the best, whom I liked the most when I was young. I’m speechless…… OMG!”

First Lady Michelle Obama, Blake Lively and other honourees also attended the party at the Time Warner Center in New York.
