And as they do every year, the weekly magazine asks other famous faces to share a few kind words about those being honored, which is pretty cool.

For instance, Pink notes that Adele “renews hope that the world I live in has good taste, that we occasionally come back to what’s simple … simply amazing.”

Stella McCartney says Rihanna is “one of the coolest, hottest, most talented, most listened to, most impressive artists today, but she does it in her own stride.”

Jeremy Lin, who also made the list, says of Tebow: “[Tim] is unashamed of his convictions and faith, and lives a life that consistently reflects his values.”
