Mary J Blige, Adele and many more big names from the world of entertainment have been declared as Time Magazine's most influential people of 2022. The annual list sees the Easy on Me singer and Mary J Blige both featured as legends of their career. James Corden described Adele as "raw, honest and elegant," while Nas branded MJB as a pioneer in the industry for being a hip-hop star who could sing. Other big names such as Pete Davidson, Zendaya and Zoe Kravitz have also been named and will be celebrated at the annual gala in June.

It's all over for Liam Payne and his fiancé Maya Henry. The former One Direction star found himself in hot water when pictures began emerging online of him seemingly cosying up to another woman. Maya, who has been linked to the singer since 2018 and announced their engagement in 2020, commented on the posts, pleaded fans to stop sending her the images, adding it was difficult enough seeing them for herself. Liam is yet to comment publicly on the split but is now thought to be dating model and influencer Aliana Mawla.
