Welcome back to Rolling Stone's "Everything Index," our midweek ranking of pop culture's power players.

It's a new year, but we're still grinding the same old axe: Namely, making fun of Kim Kardashian. But this week, we're also keeping tabs on The Bachelor, marveling at Joe Biden and complaining about the Coachella lineup – actually, that's the same stuff we were doing last year, too.
