Is Lady Gaga one of the most influential people in the world? Time magazine seems to think so, since they put her at the top of their famous “Time 100″ list.

What makes Gaga so influential? Probably the combination of having hit song after hit song, millions of dedicated and screaming fans around the world and her iconic fashion sense. And let’s not forget the newest slang fad sweeping China, “Oh My Lady Gaga.” You have to be at least somewhat influential to replace “God” in a slang term.

Time turned to Cyndi Lauper to write about the phenomenon that is Lady Gaga. Cyndi views Gaga as something more than just a pop star, she thinks of her as a performance artist:

Being around her, I felt like the dust was shaken off of me. I find it very comforting to sit next to somebody and not have to worry that I look like the freak. She isn’t a pop act, she is a performance artist. She herself is the art. She is the sculpture.
