LOL some of y'all are SO delusional. this is a list of the current "best" artists of RIGHT NOW. all that means is the most relevant artists of the current time. the FF era is basically over, so britney isn't really relevant right now. besides the voice and MLJ (which is dying down), christina isn't relevant right now either. gaga is also low on the list because after MTN disappointingly flopped, she's been laying low. nowhere did EW claim this was a list of the best artists ever. in the article they even put a disclaimer that says this is in NO WAY list of best currently living artists.
didnt realize taylor swift is doing better successful than fun. atm :clown:
