Kristen Wiig on 'SNL' Rumors


Time magazine celebrated its special issue of the "100 Most Influential People in the World" list with a star-studded New York City gala last night, where ET caught up with a few of the A-list celebs that landed a spot on the prestigious list.

Kristen Wiig revealed that she considers Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels as the most influential person in her own life, and also shot down rumors that this would be her least season on SNL.

"Decisions aren't made until the end of the season, so people just kind of start the rumor mill going and then it just takes on a life of its own," she laughed.

Rihanna, stunning in a fuchsia Marchesa gown, also performed at the gala and dished that she feels it's her "honesty" that has made her so influential with fans.

"I think a lot of it is honesty and not being afraid of the truth," Rihanna said about her popularity. "That's something that I guess you don't come by very often. And that's what I'm really encouraging my fans to do -- to live like that, and live their truth -- and I find that a lot of people don't."
