Fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton wrote Pelosi "is living proof that when it comes to getting the job done, more often than not, it takes a woman."

Johnson was praised for establishing a positive work environment, while Oh is cited for her creative life.

Musician Shawn Mendes wrote Swift "makes anyone older feel young again."

The issue is comprised of short tributes written by fellow global luminaries throughout all industries.

Beyoncé penned an essay on former first lady Michelle Obama. President Donald Trump and Special Counsel Robert Mueller were also on this year's list.

@taylorswift is one of the 100 most influential people of 2019. "The magic of Taylor Swift doesn’t come from the lights, dancers or fireworks (although all of that is incredible)," writes @shawnmendes, "but from the electrifying connection that she has with the people who are there to see her."
