Taylor Swift and Sandra Oh have been named as two of Time’s 100 most influential people of 2019 and appear on the publication’s covers.
The stars are joined by a list of other ‘pioneers, leaders, titans, artists and icons’, including TV star Gayle King, 64, actor Dwayne Johnson, 46, and former First Lady, Michelle Obama, 55.
Each year, the honorees have an article written about them in the magazine by a fellow celebrity and this year, Shawn Mendes wrote Taylor‘s Time 100 piece.

The singer said of Taylor, who has been listed as an ‘icon’: ‘I’ve been a Taylor Swift fan for as long as I can remember. But it wasn’t until I met and got to know her that I understood how wonderful a person she truly is.
‘Taylor makes the job of creating music for millions of people look easy. It all comes from her—her belief in magic and love, and her ability to be as honest and raw as possible. She’s the master of putting the perfect amount of thought into not overthinking, and that’s why her music connects so well…
‘[She] makes anyone older feel young again and anyone young feel they can do anything. It’s so rare and so special. If there is one thing I want to achieve in my career and life, it’s that.’
