London, (ANI): Lady GaGa has been voted the world's most
influential artist in a new poll by America's Time magazine. The
singer clinched the top spot in the list of 25 stars, with Conan
O'Brien coming second and Kathryn Bigelow and Oprah Winfrey coming
third and fourth respectively, reports the Daily Star.
GaGa's entry featured a tribute from veteran popstar Cyndi
Lauper, who described the Poker Face singer's lyrics as "incredibly
literary" and "sophisticated". Lauper wrote: "When I see someone
like GaGa, I sit back in admiration... She isn't a pop act, she is
a performance artist. She herself is the art."
The top ten also featured Robert Pattinson at number six and
Taylor Swift at nine. Meanwhile, Glee star Lea Michele was a
surprise entry at number 13, above established stars such as Simon
Cowell and Sir Elton John.
