Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Kerry Washington Make Time's Most Influential People List

This year's annual Time 100 issue features Beyonce on the cover but the celebration of celebrities doesn't end there.

Though it generally focuses more on movers and shakers in the fields of science and global politics, this year's list of the 100 most influential people features more famous faces than the poshest post-Oscar parties.

In addition to Queen Bey, Miley Cyrus, Matthew McConaughey, Pharrell Williams and Kerry Washington all made the list for their various contributions to the worlds of art and philanthropy. 

Naturally, some have taken issue with Miley's inclusion on the list at such an early (and controversial) stage in her career, but it's hard to argue when she's defended by none other than her godmother, country legend Dolly Parton:

"If I didn't know how smart and talented Miley is, I might worry about her," Parton wrote in her tribute to Miley. "But I've watched her grow up so I don't. She knows what she's doing."

Regardless of how you feel about Miley being considered one of the world's most influential people, at least we can all be happy that they didn't put Justin Bieber on the list.

The issue was released with four different covers featuring different honorees and we've got them all for you right here:
