    I only know Agnes Monica as an artist, but please tell me in what way she is powerful and influential. I only know her great success at such a young age.

    Ihaknt said :

    “I only know Agnes Monica as an artist, but please tell me in what way she is powerful and influential.”

    The long shot answer : Agnes Monica is capable of making countless males stand up for her. That’s powah mannn. It could put Pfizer out of the Viagra business in Indonesia.

  3. Gre says:

    🙂 I cannot find inul daratista. Am I misreading?

  4. Parvita says:

    Puan Maharani Megawati’s daughter? Who did she influence?

  5. Parvita says:

    Oh, misread. It should be powerful. What did Puan used her power against (or for)?

  6. Bas says:

    Inul daratista is far more influential and powerful than Agnes….

  7. Parvita says:

    I agree Inul should be on the list.

  8. Aniko says:

    Hi, I am a hungarian medical student, and I came back home from Indonesia just one week ago. On the airport I have seen this magazine, and I started to read the article about Siti Fadilah, the Health Minister. Unfortunately I couldn’t finish reading the article, and now I can not buy that magazine :s Is it possible to find that article somewhere online? Could anybody help me?? It would be very important to me. Thanks in advance!!!

  9. heavenlysword says:

    agnesm is overrated..

  10. Rehana Batool says:

    I have been in Indonesia couple of weeks ago to attend the International Training Session Leadership and Climate Change. There I met Mrs. Tri Mumpuni and found her superb. Would somebody forward me her email address. Thanks

  11. HRA says:

    There I met Mrs. Tri Mumpuni and found her superb. Would somebody forward me her email address. Thanks.

    I agree that Mrs.Tri Mumpuni is very an amazing woman, if you want, I have her email address, just send me PM and I will tell you okay.

  12. anakpejabatkurangduit says:

    We have several indonesian ambassadors that are women.

  13. Ytre says:

    In that way this magazine is rubbish.

  14. Wandry says:

    Are you all kidding me?? Agnes Monica has inevitably influenced so many girls in Indonesia.. she’s proved that she’s able to reach what she’d been dreaming of since she was small in a really appropriate way.. that’s why she’s powerful. powerful?? why?? because she chose not to be involved in celebrity craps (drugs, free sex, you name it..).. and she’s proved the whole world that she’s a big girl……

  15. Broker says:

    I disagree on Agnes Monica.

    Her actress personality is copied from Britney Spears. Especially her songs that have dances. What kind of influence that a faker has? I support Indonesian talents but definitely not con artists.

    Listen to her new song, Godain Aku Lagi. Its totally similar with Britney’s, I’m a Slave for You. Also half of the video clip of the same song copies NSYNC’s, Drive Myself Crazy. She also told everyone how shes going to US to be a singer like nearly a year ago. Until now she’s still the same old Agnes Monica.

  16. Bebe says:

    Like it or NOT, it’s true Agnes Monica is influential among youth.

  17. Adinda says:

    Hey, i really appreciate with number 51; Nursyahbani Katjasungkana 🙂 i adore her so much badly, agree? lol

  18. David says:

    Why do you like her Adinda? Don’t know much about her myself….

  19. adinda says:

    Oh, really? are you don’t know about her? she’s working to social women and children and she’s very independent.

  20. Pakmantri says:

    you can find most of things about Nursyahbani Katjasungkana here.


  21. artha says:

    Agnes to my personal observation influence many teenager that now “Agnes wannabe”, they learn agnes dance, her song (which to some show ‘girl power’, her free thinking, her dream, her ‘ambition’ (the fact that her voice improve significantly), her financial free, and some admire her free fashion style…

    so, how many teenager have access to television show of Agnes, that’s her influence count.
    I have one teenager at home who also “Agnes wannabe” – saying ,” she’s cool, succeed in school, good thoughts, and succeed in ‘free-ing her mind’ from what-so-called culture prison but not overly’

  22. zend says:

    OMG! Can’t be more shock than this when I read Agnes Monica is in the list.
