    So this is a list JJ made up? With has-been LeAnn Rimes on it? I can’t stop laughing. She negates the entire list.

  • Jay

    Why is everything a competition?

  • LittleDistraction

    I don’t like really to be told what was the “most popular” seems contrived and fake

  • brittak

    Where is Rita Ora???

  • Mckmell

    I don’t think many here understand thst most popular is based on the number of comments, posts, etc. Ps. I guess Justin Bieber is no longer popular. FKATWIGS is there bc of her relationship with Robert Pattinson.

  • LittlePK

    Selena Gomez is number 2???

  • Mary

    Whoever made this list had ears and eyes problems! It’s suck!

  • Katey

    Leann Rimes is more popular than One direction??? Are you kidding me? You must be kidding me!!!

  • Sprite

    I guess some got a cheque.

  • Friskyy Kaunang

    My fav definitly Gwen Stefani.
