The Time 100 Gala, celebrating the 100 Most Influential People of 2013, was held in New York City last night (April 23) at the Lincoln Center. Along with activists, politicians, actors, athletes, musicians and varied important folks from all walks of life, three of R&B’s biggest stars were honored and in attendance.
The goldenboy, Justin Timberlake, arrived with his wife Jessica Biel, and mingled with friends and fellow entertainers. Frank Ocean brought his mother Katonya as his date, to celebrate the momentous honor.
