I don't like Taylor's music but this was her year, with or without Kanye

I agree, Lady Gaga should be on the list.

britney for sure... only because her trajectory started out from the very bottom! not sure you could have gotten lower than where she was a year ago :) but i love everyone in this category! and they definitely deserve every piece of success they get.

Taylor's rise in popularity is not all due to the Kanye incident. She went from an opening act on the Rascal Flatts tour last year to headlining her own tour, selling out nearly every venue she played in. I'm sure the Kanye thing might have had something to do with a recent surge in Taylor supporters, but give the girl some credit. She worked hard and was rising fast on her own before he did anything.
