The Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013 | According to Barbara Walters

If you checked out ABC’s annual special The Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013 on Wednesday night, chosen by legendary journalist Barbara Walters and her executive team, you would know who made the list!  We want to go over these top picks and then you can let us know who tops your list for the ten most fascinating people of 2013!

In order from the tenth most fascinating person to the MOST fascinating person of 2013, check out the list below:

Miley Cyrus | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

What would any list of the fascinating people of 2013 be without Miley Cyrus?  She sat down with Barbara Walters and explained her transition from Hannah Montana to the young twenty-one year old she is today.  Miley goes on to say that her plan to get people talking about and buying her music has worked for her thus far!  Miley Cyrus definitely would’ve been on our list of the top ten most fascinating people of 2013!

The Royal Prince George | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

The Royal Prince George, son of Prince William and his wife Kate might be the youngest person to ever make the Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013!  The world followed his entrance into this world very closely…and his family presented him with beauty and grace.

Edward Snowden | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

Edward Snowden, not only the most wanted man in America, but also one of the ten most fascinating people of 2013.  What more is there to say?  The man that worked for the NSA blew the whistle on some very confidential information about espionage and the monitoring of Americans’ internet and phone activity.  Some call him a traitor and he is now in Russia seeking permanent political asylum.  Would Edward Snowden have made your list of most fascinating people of this year?

Duck Dynasty | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

Truth be told, I have never seen Duck Dynasty and they probably wouldn’t have made it onto my own personal ten most fascinating people of 2013 list.  But, they did make it onto Barbara Walter’s list because they and their story are fascinating.

Kanye West & Kim Kardashian | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, otherwise known as Kimye, have made Barbara Walter’s list of the Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013.  They have both separately been on the her list before and with the birth of their baby North West and their Bound 2 video they have reappeared!  Are you over Kimye or would they make your list too?

Robin Roberts | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

One of the most endearing and courageous stories of 2013 was the journey of reporter Robin Roberts cancer.  Robin let the world into her life after finding out that she had a cancer of the blood.  As loyal viewers we watched as she became scared and needed a bone marrow transplant to live longer than the two years the doctors had given her.  She got that chance when they discovered her sister’s marrow was a match and we saw Robin get sick and weak and sad and then recover beautifully and coming back as co-host of Good Morning America.  Robin Roberts’ story was one of bravery and she is certainly one of the ten most fascinating people of 2013 in our books!

Pope Francis | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

Pope Francis is an inspiring man to many and for that and many other reasons he has made the Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013 list!  Billions of Catholics follow his leadership and many others look up to him for so many reasons.  One of our favorite reasons this year is this quote from Pope Francis: “If someone is gay and seeks the Lord with good will, who am I to judge?”  This makes us happy!

Jennifer Lawrence | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

Jennifer Lawrence would have made our list of the ten most fascinating people not only this year but probably last year as well and most likely will be on our list again next year! She may even be our MOST fascinating person of this year for so many different reasons. Like Jennifer said in her interview on Wednesday (and I’m paraphrasing) she never knows what is going to fly out of her mouth, she thinks women judging other women is sick and it should be illegal to call someone FAT, and in ten years she sees herself married and starting a family, but can’t stand it when people ask her, “What makes you normal?” Jennifer Lawrence is a force to be reckoned with, already an Oscar Winning actress at 23, but also up for a Golden Globe award for her new movie American Hustle.

Hillary Clinton | Ten Most Fascinating People of 2013

So, number one, The MOST Fascinating Person of 2013…Hillary Clinton!!!  Barbara’s pick for the most fascinating person of 2013 was a good one, we think!  Everyone wants to know her plans in the government and will she run for President?  And soon?  She told Barbara Walters that she is still undecided, but wants to worry about what is going on now in the country, not what she will do in the future!  Would Hillary be on your list this year?

2013 VMAs | Success or Failure?

Who watched the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night?  OMG is all we have to say!!!  Even if you haven’t seen the VMAs, we know you have seen the video clips of Miley Cyrus‘ performance of We Cant’ Stop, no?  Well if not, check it out below:

Miley Cyrus performing We Can’t Stop and Blurred Lines with Robin Thicke at the 2013 VMAs

As for the rest of the show…there were some pretty cool performances!  Justin Timberlake performed on the 2013 VMAs for quite a long time, some may say they even became bored, until the end that is!  At the end of his performance, Justin Timberlake brought out a very special surprise…his former boyband mates from N’Sync.  Now, we must admit, it was pretty cool.

We finally got to see Lady Gaga at the 2013 VMAs.  Gaga was interviewed on the streets of Brooklyn which served as the red carpet for the event held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.  Lady Gaga also opened the show with a great performance of her new single “Applause“.  By the end of her performance, Gaga was half naked with big hair…and we loved it!!

SHORT HAIR ON WOMEN IN HOLLYWOOD…THE NEW THING?

Short Hair on Women in Hollywood…The New Thing?

Recently celebrities everywhere have been popping up with new short hair cuts.  Is short hair on women in Hollywood the new thing?  For years actresses like Halle Barry have been sporting pixie cuts, but it seems more and more of these cute cuts are showing up in Hollywood.  If short hair on women in Hollywood is the new thing there are a few startlets that are doing a great job of showing off their short haircuts.  Check out the short hair on these women in Hollywood!

Anne Hathaway was just awarded with the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress at the recent Academy Awards.  While her dress may have gotten a lot of criticism, her hair looked fabulous!

Another starlet sporting a new short pixie cut is Miley Cyrus.  Way back when Miley was Hannah Montana, she had long wavy locks which were beautiful, but her new short rocker cut really gives her an edginess that she never had when she was on the Disney Channel.  Now with Miley’s new older and more sophisticated attitude she has the hair to match!

Charlize Theron has chopped off most of her hair as well.  If short hair on women in Hollywood is the newest thing, Ms. Theron is right on trend.  While some actresses have been cutting their hair short to change their look, Charlize cut her hair for a role in the new movie “Mad Max: Fury Road”, and has said it’s the most ‘freeing thing’ she ever did!  Charlize recommends that all women try it in their lifetime.  Charlize Theron looks beautiful either way…but we are loving this blonde cut.

Kellie Pickler has different reasons for buzzing off her blonde locks.  Her best friend was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and Kellie cut her hair short in support.  Kellie is making a statement with her short hair and she looks adorable while doing it.

While some celebrities are recently chopping off their long locks for an easier shorter doo, there are many celebrities that have been sporting short hair for quite a while.  Maybe these ladies have started the trend of short hair on women in Hollywood, but no matter the reason, these ladies have always looked beautiful with short hair.

Rihanna has always been very versatile and changing it up quite often.  It seems that half the time Rihanna has long beautiful hair and the other half she keeps it neat and short.  Which do you like better?
