Last night, Frank Ocean (shown atop with Justin Timberlake) was among the celebs who celebrated being chosen for the Time 100 issue, which lists the world's most influential artists, politicans and newsmakers.
Held at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Frank walked the red carpet with his lovely mother Katonya Breaux Riley.
When asked how he felt about being included on the list, Frank told MTV News, "Pretty cool. The whole list is pretty rad, a pretty good assortment of folks. A very varied assortment of human beings in all different spaces and cool, very cool."
Miguel, shown atop with Christina Aguilera, was also on the list of the world's most influential leaders.
As famous folks like actress Amy Poehler celebrated his influence, Miguel told MTV News that he hopes to work with President Obama one day on projects that will influence families and American citizens. He said,
"...And I think family is, having a great family, or just two people in the family that help raise a child makes a huge difference on the kind of citizen they become and how competent a citizen they will be. And if there's anything we can do socially, economically or culturally to encourage that or affect that, that's something I'm interested in collaborating for."
Singer Raphael Saadiq, who made the "TIME 100" in 2012, attended the gala with Kim Porter on him arm (not THAT Kim Porter!).
CBS Early Show anchor Gayle King attended the gala.
"Scandal" creator Shonda Rhimes was also on the 2013 TIME 100 list.
