According to Time Magazine, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner are two of the Most Influential Teens of 2014.

This may be a depressing fact, but it’s a fact nonetheless. And it’s one the teenage sisters recognize as both important and flattering.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner: So Very Influential!

"We are so honored to be included on the Time magazine list of ‘Most Influential Teens,’" Kendall and Kylie told E! News not long after the prestigious list went viral. "There are incredible teens on this list and we are so proud to be in their company."


Other deemed noteworthy by Time editors include Malala Yousafzai, who just became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize in honor due to her activism towards women’s education.

She was actually shot in the head by the Taliban at the age of 15, but only used that experience as motivation to increase her very impressive, very brave efforts.

Sasha Obama, Malia Obama, Jaden Smith, Austin Mahone and Lorde were also featured by Time as Influential Teens, though, among these celebrities, only Kendall and Kylie have released a nail polish line.

They’ve also authored a novel and hosted many red carpet events, while Kendall’s modeling career has taken off in recent months.

Some critics, of course, have disagreed with Time’s decision to feature the Jenners, but talk show host Wendy Williams is fully behind the decision.

"They are influential to teens!" Williams said on her self-titled talk show Tuesday. “Either teen girls want to look like them…or dress like them. They follow them on Instagram. They should be on this list, that’s all!"
