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…

19.
Donald Trump

Donald Trump

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.

18.
Bill Cosby

Bill Cosby

Or perhaps we should just called him inmate number “NN7687.”

17.
Jenelle Evans and David Eason

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.

16.
Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga

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???

15.
Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner

She’s a mother now. How crazy is that?!?!?

14.
Khloe Kardashian

Khloe Kardashian

She’s also a mother now, as well as a sympathetic figure for having to endure the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal.
