Lady Gaga named CNN’s ‘Most Provocative Person’ over Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen
HollywoodNews.com: Lady Gaga has never been shy about her individuality and her lack of concern for how others perceive her and that renegade spirit has lead CNN’s Showbiz Tonight to name Lady Gaga the ‘most provocative celebrity of 2010.’
The result came after considering various criteria of public interest and outrage. Given Gaga’s outspoken nature regarding “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and her outrageous costumes, it comes as no surprise that she snagged the title, but at the same time, Gaga had some pretty stiff competition. 2010 was also the year that Charlie Sheen has yet another meltdown, Milley Cyrus tried to wipe away her squeeky clean image, and Lindsay Lohan was just being Lindsay Lohan.
So how did Gaga come out on top? Sheer cultural impact as Showbiz Tonight says.
“In 2010 she dominated cyberspace, becoming the most followed person on Twitter and the first artist to reach a billion video views on YouTube. And Lady Gaga wasn’t afraid to use her massive platform to effect social change. She led campaigns to stop bullying and to end the military’s ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy.”
