Pop stars are taking over TIME magazine!!
Just a couple months ago, Miley Cyrus was a contender for Person of the Year against Pope Francis, but she sadly lost the title to the Holy Father!
This time, Justin Bieber is leading TIME mag's reader poll for Most Influential Person, even though GQ dubbed him as one of their least influential people last year!
So, take THAT Gentleman's Quarterly!
Despite the insane rollercoaster the Biebs has been through since the beginning of this year, he's one of the top contenders in the reader's poll, beating out Egyptian Presidential candidate Abdul Fattah al-Sisi!
Bieberoni is also ahead of Beyoncé, Rihanna, and even Benedict Cumberbatch!
How is that even possible?!
But if you're worried about Justin taking the important title home with him, fret not! It's just a poll TIME magazine put out to get some input from their readers!
Ultimately the editors of the magazine will choose 100 people they deem worthy of that title.
The final winner will be announced next week on the 23rd and the official list will be out the following day!
May the best, and most influential person, win!
