Time magazine calls the people on their 100 Most Influential People In The World list “the people who inspire us, entertain us, challenge us and change our world.” Rihanna and Adele have found themselves among the selected few.

The two pop powerhouses are named on the list, released today, which also includes President Barack Obama, basketball star Jeremy Lin, football star Tim Tebow, and presidential hopeful Mitt Romney.

The honor includes heartfelt letters written by some of the people they’ve influenced. Rihanna’s feature is written by designer Stella McCartney, and Adele’s is penned by fellow pop star Pink.

“Rihanna, 24, goes out of her way to support the people she believes in,” McCartney wrote. “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.”

“I’m always so happy when the world catches on to something great,” Pink wrote. “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.”
