Lady Gaga may not have been in the music industry for very long but she is already accomplishing major veteran-like achievements. The 24-year-old superstar has been named one of the ‘Most Influential People In the World’ by Time magazine. In fact, her achievements are so great that out of the 100 listed, she placed at No. 1 on the list of artists who most affect our world.

Gaga also beat out the world’s most powerful figures such as Oprah Winfrey, Prince, Elton John, and Marc Jacobs. The pop phenomenon also ranks on the same platform as world leaders such as President Obama, Bill Clinton, and Steve Jobs. Mentor Cyndi Lauper paid her the biggest compliment yet: “She isn’t a pop act, she is a performance artist. She herself is the art. She is the sculpture”.
