Time Magazine released its list of the Most Influential People in America, and I guess that the most surprising name on there is not Glen Beck or Sarah Palin -- who are unfortunately very influential. It's not even Ashton Kutcher, whose influence is elusive to me, although not to Sean P.Diddy Combs, who wrote up his profile:

What he and Demi do with Twitter is a good example. Most people use it to promote themselves, but he uses Twitter to connect, to strike up conversations, to send positive messages to the millions of people who read his words. This guy will show us the future. And it's gonna be a blast.

Lady GaGa and Robert Pattinson: I see their influence, although I wish I didn't. Taylor Swift likewise. Neil Patrick Harris and Neill Blomkamp are surprising, but in a good way. As are Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof. I have no idea, however, what Prince is doing on the list in 2010.

No. Really, the most surprising person on the list is Lea Michele. You mean: Rachel Berry? What kind of influence does she have? She's a role player in a Fox show, and probably not even the most popular one. Her inclusion, however, was amusing for one reason: Olivia Newton-John's self-serving write-up:

It must be so exciting to be Lea. To be in a wonderfully entertaining musical, playing a character whom millions of people around the world adore and whom young girls emulate -- tell me about it!
