  1. Justin Bieber

    It's no wonder JB makes it to number one on our 2011 Famous Person's Top 10. Bieber's latest album "My Life 2.0" has been rocketing up the charts, his concert movie "Never Say Never" grossed $100 million globally and his concerts are bringing in $600,000 in gross ticket sales per night. Add to that Bieber's hit song "Baby" being viewed on YouTube a record 500 million times.

    If that's not enough Bieber has been dubbed the most popular person on the internet and his relationship with fellow celebrity Selena Gomez ensures they are followed, photographed and talked about pretty much every day of the year.

  2. Miranda Kerr

    Is there anything this chick can't do? She is a successful sought after model, she nabbed Orlando Bloom, she gave birth to a gorgeous little boy (Flynn) AND within a couple of months she regained her hot bod and started walking the catwalk again.

    Kerr is a great example of how you can be a mother and have a career - this is due in part to Bloom who is a supportive husband and helps to take care of Flynn whilst Kerr flies all over the world with her modelling commitments.

    It's great to see such a well matched celebrity couple and Kerr must be thinking herself very lucky to "have it all"!

  3. Beyoncé Knowles

    As if Beyonce didn't have it all already. This hard working, talented, savvy and beautiful performer looked to have everything a person could desire - a great career, a new album release, a great husband and millions of adoring fans! But always an achiever this year she has added a "baby" to the list of her successes!

    If Knowles is half as good as being a mother as she is with everything else in her life she will be awesome! We are going to watch how being a new Mom will affect the other aspects of her life.

    Oh and all this for someone who only just turned 30 this year! You go girl!

  4. Michael Jackson

    With the court case dealing with his death at the hands of Conrad Murray making the news every day, Michael Jackson was once again thrust into our lives in 2011.

    Since his death in 2009 its been a bit quite on the Jackson front but the trial that was to provide the Jackson clan with justice has brought it all back up again.

    Sometimes its still hard to believe Jackson is dead - at least now someone has been brought to justice over such a tragic loss.

  5. Lady Gaga

    Being strange really pays off! And Lady Gaga is the queen of weird! Gaga grossed $170 million on 137 shows in 22 countries over the past 12 months and has sold an estimated 15 million albums worldwide.

    Fans want a piece of her, advertisers want a piece of her, the media wants a piece of her... she's more popular than ever in 2011 and we think there's no letting up for 2012.

  6. Kate Middleton

    534,069 views
    In 2011 everyone was well impressed with this "commoner" who managed to steal a Prince's heart! Middleton embodied the "hope" that all of us average people could find a fairytale ending!

    Middleton embodies grace, sophistication, poise, and femininity. When you consider just how under the microscope she is, how her every move is photographed, studied, and dissected, you can’t help but be amazed by how beautifully she’s been able to handle the pressure.

    And what a selfless young woman she’s proven to be. Kate has all the goods to be one of the world’s great woman, and she is on her way.

    We can't wait to hear of baby news for her and her Prince charming.

  7. Charlie Sheen

    Charlie Sheen

    302,468 views
    This is what happens when drugs and alcohol take over a celebrity's life! And Sheen got major coverage of his journey from bad boy to well... mental case! He was in our lounge rooms every night blabbing on about "tiger's blood", being a "bi-winner" and claiming to be a "jet fighter taking you down in the sky".

    We think its a miracle Sheen survived 2011 at all. There were grave concerns for his mental well being and his life.

    2011 was a bad year for Sheen... first there was his divorce from Brooke Mueller & the custody battles over their kids... then there was the drug binge that led to arrests & his sacking from Two and a Half Men (after he had some choice things to say about the producers of the show)... then there were the "tiger blood/winner" speaking tours that flopped... oh and the failed relationships with his two "goddesses".

    It'd be nice to see Sheen clean himself up in 2012 and make a career comeback ala Robert Downey Jr. After all he's a good actor and a funny guy and its such a waste to see him walking around in a drug haze. Two & a Half Men hasn't been the same without him and all would be forgiven if he would just clean up his act!

    If Sheen can turn things around and become a responsible and sober father, friend, and performer then he will become one of the biggest turnaround stories in Hollywood history.

  8. Oprah Winfrey

    As her long-running syndicated show came to an end it seems all the world's attention was on farewelling Oprah from the small screen.

    After a trip to Australia, an epic final episode of the Oprah Show and millions of tears from fans who didn't want her to leave she finally ended an epic career on the talk show circuit, switched tack and is now working on making her new cable station, OWN, a success.

  9. Tiger Woods

    Tiger Woods makes into the Top 10 as the world's best paid athlete.

    Woods has struggled to win tournaments and sign new sponsorship deals since his November 2009 car crash and the infidelity scandal that followed yet he continues to be financially successful.

    It looks as though his prowess on the golf course is over but he is still able to pull a massive crowd with people clamouring over tickets whenever he makes an appearance on the green!

  10. Betty White

    Betty White

    63,365 views
    Turning 90 is a massive achievement in of itself and White is celebrating that milestone this year! But then to be 90 and on a career resurgence is incredible. White is taking the world by storm with her cheekiness, her humour and her "can do" attitude. She is the perfect example of older people still being able to rock it in a young person's world.

    White is the last survivor of the "Golden Girls" TV series that made people laugh and gave the older generation a voice again.

    Since the cancellation of the Golden Girls White has kept rather low key but recently she has come into her and as a talented and highly funny lady she is well in demand.

    With such a great attitude, positive outlook and with her ability to outwit much younger people we think she has many years left in her!
