We're halfway through THG's annual, arbitrary countdown of the year's top celebrities.
Kate Upton got things started at #10, followed by meth cook extraordinaire Walter White at #9, amazing actress Jennifer Lawrence at #8, that S&M lover Christian Grey at #7 and the overall concept of Twerking at #6.
Now, clocking in at #5, Mr. Controversy himself, JUSTIN BIEBER!
Bieber was absolutely everywhere in 2013, though that wasn't always a good thing.
His previously perfect reputation took quite the hit, thanks to incidents such as...
Justin attacking a photographer in London:
Justin peeing in a mop bucket and laughing about it:
Justin being carried up the Great Wall of China by his bodyguards:
Bieber being filmed while sleeping by a random Brazilian woman who then confirmed she slept with the singer:
Bieber also threw many crazy house parties, one of which led to allegations of assault against a young woman and one that nearly landed a passed-out guest in the hospital.
All of these incidents and others led to Bieber actually being booed at the Billboard Music Awards, while his "Believe" movie opened on Christmas Day and totally bombed.
On the music side, however, these scandals did little to slow Bieber down. He toured the globe to packed stadiums. He blew up the Internet with #MusicMondays this fall. His "Journals" compilation sold very well on iTunes.
But Justin Bieber clearly suffered a major hit to his reputation in 2013. Can he resurrect his good boy image in 2014? Does he even want to? It will be fascinating to watch.
For now, let's all appreciate how much the guy at least stays in the news and let's all drool over the following Justin Bieber photo montage:
