Occupation: Musician
Biggest accomplishment this year: Reaching No. 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 with her single "C'Mon"

With her long-awaited second album finally released, Ke$ha has vaulted right back into the spotlight on the strength of several highly popular tracks. "Die Young," her first single off Warrior, peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and reminded America why the glitter-clad 26-year-old became a star in the first place. And though none of us asked for it, Ke$ha has given us an even deeper look into her existence with her MTV documentary series Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life. Among other things, this has allowed us to watch Ke$ha drink her own pee. Ke$ha: a role model for us all.
