Both Adele and Rihanna earned some decent moolah in 2011, but fell short compared to the Top 3 earning women in music. Check out what how much of your money these female superstars raked in.

Tonight, Barbara Walters revealed her list of the most fascinating people of 2011. This is Barbara’s 19th year of delivering the end of the year special. Like every year, Barbara gets up close and personal with the biggest names in entertainment, politics and pop culture. This year’s list seemed a little heavy on the pop culture but in this day and age, pop culture influences every aspect of our culture.

This year’s line up included hit maker of the year, Katy Perry along with the creator of X Factor, Simon Cowell. They were joined by the who coined “you’re fired” as a catchphrase, Donald Trump as well as the gay couple from Modern Family, Eric Stonestreet and Jessie Tyler Ferguson. One of my favorite additions to the list that hadn’t previously been announced is a very controversial political figure: Herman Cain. This man has created a lot of buzz surrounding the never-ending list of women who came forward to accuse him of sexual harassment which in turn ultimately lead him to fold his campaign and pull out of the presidential candidacy.

But every year, we must wait until the special airs to find out just who will be Barbara’s most fascinating person. Last year, General David Petraeus topped the list while Michelle Obama topped it in 2009. This year, there has been a lot of speculation on who would gain Barbara’s top honor this year. In the end, Barbara decided the rules were meant to be broken and picked someone that a few people weren’t expecting.

2011 Billboard Year End Charts… Who’s On Top?

In: Donovan, Music

Earlier this week, Rolling Stone Magazine named Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” as their #1 track of the year. Now it’s Billboard Magazine’s turn to honor the British songbird. While Rolling Stone’s rankings are purely subjective, Billboard based their honors on sales, radio airplay and streaming statistics, which to me is the way to go.

Adele dominated Billboard’s year end issue. Not only, was she named “Artist of the Year“, but she also held top position on both the Hot 100 singles chart and Top 200 album one, with “Rolling In The Deep” and “21” respectively. Plus, she’s the first woman to get Billboard’s top honors of “Artist of the Year”. That’s such an amazing feat. Check out the also-rans who came close, but no cigar with regards to album sales.

The TOP 10 of BILLBOARD‘S 2011 Year-End TOP 200 Chart

  • 1. Adele, 21
  • 2. Taylor Swift, Speak Now
  • 3. Lady Gaga, Born This Way
  • 4. Jason Aldean, My Kinda Party
  • 5. Susan Boyle, The Gift
  • 6. Lil Wayne, Tha Carter IV
  • 7. Nicki Minaj, Pink Friday
  • 8. Mumford & Sons, Sigh No More
  • 9. Rihanna, Loud
  • 10. Katy Perry, Teenage Dream

How amazing is it that Susan Boyle can move so many CDs and not have any hit songs on mainstream radio? You gotta hand it to the woman. Even though I don’t write about them that much, I’m so glad Mumford and Sons made the list. I’m obsessed with that entire CD. Surprising right, considering I’m all about the R&B divas? Now that you know who the Top 10 were in album sales, see who had the most popular songs of the year below.

Watch Katy Perry’s SNL Promos

In: TV Shows, Tyrell, Videos

This Saturday, Katy Perry is set to host SNL. While some musicians who have hosted the live show before opt to also play musical guest, Katy bowed out and is letting Homorazzi favorite Robyn take the stage. Only fitting seeing as the two toured together on her Teenage Dreams tour.

Katy has been having quite the banner year so why not wrap it all up in a bow by hosting SNL. We know Katy can be funny. We saw her comedy fashion when she donned a low cut Elmo t-shirt and bounced her boobs around with Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph. But, can she handle the roll of host?

In four new promos for this weekend’s gig, Katy teams up with Kenan Thompson to garner some viewers. While these promos are never amazing, Katy definitely appears more humorous than Thompson and even does an uncanny impression of her husband, Russell Brand. Watch all four promos back-to-back below.

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

At the beginning of November, I informed you all about Perez Hilton’s new show titled Super Fan airing on the UK’s ITV2. The show is set to feature exclusive access and interviews with some of Perez’s closest friends including Katy Perry, Enrique Iglesias and Kelly Rowland. But one of the biggest names that Perez chats with and is the kick off to the show’s series is with none other than Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga.

In the new clip, Perez introduces the show and explains it’s premise before we see a multitude of clips from his debut episode with Lady Gaga. It’s no secret that the two are besties. They have been photographed together numerous times and Gaga even gave Perez an exclusive listen to her album way before it even dropped. In the preview, we see them cooking in the kitchen, back stage at shows and more. It’s sure to be an all-access ride into the lives of your favorite stars, so if you get ITV2 across the pond, I suggest you check it out.

Back in the 1980s, Michael Jackson scored five straight chart-toppers off one album. That feat remained unmatched for almost 25 years. To everyone’s surprise, Katy Perry matched his record this year when she also scored five No. 1s off her “Teenage Dream” album. Not content at tying Michael Jackson’s Billboard record, Katy Perry is pulling out all the stops so she can stand alone in the record books.

When Perry was attempting to match MJ’s record, she added a completely unnecessary rap from Missy Elliott to “T.G.I.F. (Friday Night)” to attract more sales and radio airplay. The stunt yielded results and secured her fifth chart topper. To secure an unprecedented six straight #1 single, she’s employing a tactic Lady Gaga used to sell more than one million records of “Born This Way” during it’s first week of sales.

Last week, I shared with you Mattel’s Nicki Minaj Barbie doll being auctioned off to raise funds for Project Angel Food. Turns out, there’s also another celebrity-inspired doll on CharityBuzz.com you can bid on. Just like Minaj, this singer has a propensity to don colorful wigs. So much so, this singer is the face of GHD Wig’s holiday ad campaign.

Just like Nicki’s version, this celeb doll is meticulously made with the greatest attention to detail made. The stunning cupcake dress is made with 70 hand-painted mini-cupcakes with a glittered bodice. The fishnet stockings are even adorned with Swarovski crystals. Bidding has started at $1,000 and has the same $15,000 estimated value as Minaj’s. See which singer is the latest to receive a Barbie Doll treatment.

Katy Perry Debuts A Shorter ‘Do

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Tyrell

Sometimes, we get so used to a stars look that when they change it up, it totally makes us give them a double take. This is the case for one celebrity’s newest look. Barbara Walters’ most fascinating pop star, Katy Perry just debuted another new ‘do this weekend. If you remember, Katy when from dark brown, to ginger godess, to pink princess. Now, the singer has done yet another drastic change.

Last night at the Change Begins Within benefit gala in LA, Katy showed off her new blonde locks with hints of the pink still remaining giving her a dusty, strawberry blonde look. However, the color isn’t the only change. She chopped off a lot of length leaving her with a chin-length bob that is TO DIE FOR. I’m in love with the new look. Check it out below.
