For the record, the following is not a list of our favorite celebrities from 2018.
Or even our least favorite celebrities.
You might say it's somewhere in between.
We adore some of the folks included below and we abhor others.
But there can be no denying the impact they had on popular culture over the past 12 months, which is why this is a rundown of the 18 "best" celebrities over this latest calendear year.
Who sits at #1? You're moments away from finding out...
Look, if you're talking about the star who was heard from the most in 2018, and who was discussed the most, this traitorous President is clearly the only answer. But we can't put someone who is number-one in the heart of Vladimir Putin atop our list. So we'll just mention Trump here, but place him as low as possible.
Or perhaps we should just called him inmate number "NN7687."
Jenelle Evans and David Eason
We could almost separate these two, they each stirred up so much controversy in 2018. But if Evans won't come to her senses and divorce this bigot, then we'll follow suit and keep them as one.
This star herself was not born in 2018. But she was remade as a legitimate actress who could actually win an Oscar. How nuts is that???
She's a mother now. How crazy is that?!?!?
She's also a mother now, as well as a sympathetic figure for having to endure the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal.
From D-Lister to A-Lister, all because she said "yes" to Justin Bieber. What a year!
We hope not to see him on this list in 2019. Because the dude clearly needs to spend the next several months away from the spotlight, in some sort of mental health facility.
He made folks laugh and cringe on SNL, but he also sky-rocketed to the A-List due to his shocking engagement to Ariana Grande... and then his less shocking split from her.
Michael B. Jordan
Black Panther and Creed 2 in the same year?!? Meet our new favorite actor.
We're just putting this monster up as the symbol for the #MeToo era. It's not meant as an honor. It's meant as a dishonor. Good riddance to him, Kevin Spacey and all the other famous sexual predators out there.
The “Sorry Not Sorry” artist was hospitalized after emergency responders were called to her residence last July for an apparent drug overdose. The singer then entered rehab for substance abuse. We wish her well.
It was a big deal last year when she topped the Billboard charts. Now it's simply expected of the hip hop star, who had a baby this year and continues to make news by begging Offset to f-ck the sh-t out of her
Just... the entire company. It officially runs the world.
The Jersey Shore Cast
The Situation was sentenced to jail. JWOWW is in the middle of an ugly divorce. Ronnie and his baby mama can barely go a full week without the cops being called to break up a fight. Who knew these crazy kids would still be doing crazy stuff in 2018?
She made news for reasons both professional ("Thank U, Next") and sadly personal (Mac Miller dying, ending her engagement to Pete Davidson). Ariana may be the most popular singer alive today, but she's ready for 2019 to begin.
Let's all pray he's number-one on this list in 2019.
Because she emerged victorious from feuds with Kate Middleton and her own sister. Like Tupac in his heyday, rivalries only make her stronger. Oh, and she got married. And knocked up!
Do You Agree?
Would Markle be your top choice? Did we leave anyone out? Chime in and let us know!
