Sarah palin time 100 In celebration of its annual 100 list, Time magazine invited the honorees to a party at New York's Time Warner Center on Monday night.

Sarah Palin, Taylor Swift and Ashton Kutcher were among those featured in Time as top influencers in America over the last 12 months. 

While Kutcher tweeted away with wife Demi Moore and Swift did her usual show-up-and-wave-and-country-gal thing, Palin took the opportunity to confront some media folks she's been irked by of late.

"I did talk to a couple of reporters already and said that a bunch of stuff that they write is bogus, but we had a great conversation about it and we agreed to disagree on a lot of things," she told New York magazine.

The magazine insinuated that she was not impressed by the evening's keynote speaker, former President Clinton (Michelle Obama had the gig last year).

Other Time 100 guests included Betty White, J.J. Abrams, "Glee" star Lea Michelle, Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow, Richard Branson, Judd Apatow with Leslie Mann and Elton John with husband David Furnish.

[For the record, 1:10 p.m Wednesday: An earlier version of this post referred to Swift, who sported a sequined guitar for her performance at the Time 100 event, as a teenager. She turned 20 in December.]
