Influential how? Teenagers consumer choices? Most are just pop stars I've never heard of, from what I can make out.

Any list like this one which doesn't include Craig Ferguson doesn't influence me a bit :)

Kaka? Snooki? I refuse to vote for someone who has no last name.

I suspect most responders to the survey have no clue what the word "influential" means.
Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every man present his views without penalty there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population. - Albert Einstein

I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but still I keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out - David Sedaris (Naked)

Sweating it over Lady Gaga, eh, Jean? :D

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach
