As is custom in the piece, another influencer writes a short bio on the honoree, with Martha Stewart writing about Kim and her famous family: "The Kardashians are a totally modern construct. They are a blended family, of Armenian descent, with biracial pairings (Kim is married to Kanye West) and a reportedly transgender parent. They work hard, and they stick together through thick and thin.

"Are they indeed today’s Brady Bunch?"

Meanwhile, Kanye's profile, written by Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX and Tesla, said: "Kanye West would be the first person to tell you he belongs on this list. The dude doesn’t believe in false modesty, and he shouldn’t.'
