Who Do People Want To Read About The Most???


It's a celebrity cover face-off!

Who's face do people want to buy?????

Forbes magazine conducted a survey to determine the best celebrity face.

They gathered data from People, Star, US Weekly, In Touch Weekly, Life & Style and OK! over a year long period ending June 30th and eliminated covers that did not feature one celebrity exclusively.

The data was analyzed in terms of issues sold as compared to each magazine's average newsstand sales, number of full magazine covers, and each star's "likability," as determined by E-Poll Market Research.

Now, we're going to reward you for reading through all that statistical jargon and tell you who earned the number one position out of ten.


It was none other than one-third of the Holy Celebritrinity: Angelina Jolie.

(The other two parts are, of course, Brad Pitt, with the kids counting as one.)

Our Lady of Perfection won in all three categories: sales, number of covers, and likability.

The world just loves a Madonna-Former-Whore.

Jennifer Aniston came in second, falling from last year's first place. She also averaged well in all three categories.

We guess people like to hear her whine about her relationship problems after all.

Heath Ledger rounded out the top three positions, one of only two males in the top ten. His third place can be attributed to his untimely demise, with magazines offering answers to his still mysterious death. It seems that the world also loves a good tragedy, because Owen Wilson finished up the list at number ten, with readers' interested piqued by his suicide attempt.

Suri Cruise and Shiloh Jolie-Pitt represented the under-ten players, coming in at 7th and 8th place, respectively. People really love those Jolie-Pitts.

New mothers Nicole Richie and Jamie Lynn Spears came in 5th and 4th, both with impressive sales, but low in likability, knocking down their scores.

Surprisingly, Jessica Simpson made the list at 6th place. But, only because her face is plastered everywhere because otherwise she ranked pretty low in likability. In fact, it's probably only because people despise "Yoko Romo" for dragging down their precious Tony Romo and his football team.

So that leaves one spot less and who got it?

Publicity-humping Heidi Montag came in 9th. But with all of her and boyfriend Spencer's freakin coverage, are you really that surprised? And that's the only reason she was in the top ten at all, because girlfriend is almost as disliked as Britney Spears, which is not to say that BritBrit is hated. It's just that with a tabloid headline almost ever other day covering some crazy antic or another, people get tired of it.

But, the very least likable celebrity was our own fave Slutty Cyrus, despite her near billionaire status.

And why is that?

"Here is a teenager who's quickly becoming a multi-millionaire, if not a billionaire. It's pretty hard to relate to that," says In Touch Weekly editor Michelle Lee.

And relatability is becoming increasingly important in magazine sales as wallets become increasingly slender. The mags have about five seconds to catch your attention as you stand in line at the super market, wondering what the hold up ahead is, and if you're going to shell out the 4 bucks for a mag on top of that already escalating grocery bill, it better be something you really really want, right?

So be prepared to see a lot more Jolie…unless the mags jump the shark and commit another Britney overload.

  3. 3

    the hillbilly skank cyrus should NOT have been on that list! ugh! as if her ego wasnt already big enough.

    Re: fashionitgirl

    Yeah, I read this yesterday. Bleh.

    that's surprising..im sick of seeing and hearing about her altogether

  11. 11

    People want to read about Aniston? Really? I sure don't.

  12. JM. says – reply to this


    This will change real soon. What we need is a likable sitcoms on TV, which can produce likable TV celebrities. But first, we need to decide what is funny.

    Rumer got robbed!!!

    i love britney, but i don't like reading about lies so i don't read the tabloids, thanks
    WOMANIZER uh-huh
    Premieres at 10pm tonight on 20-20

  15. 15

    also perez notice that your britney posts get the MOST comments on your site?
    her photographs alone put millions into the economy EVERY year and she is the MOST searched for person on Yahoo.

  16. 16

    I agree with you about Britney if her people knew what they were doing they would have kept her out of the spotlight for a few months I'M already sick of hearing about her and her cd doesn't come out till December!! I think her we fill sorry for you win at the Vmas got her team thinking about a grammy win.

  17. 17

    FIRST… Thank you Perez for posting a Britney story (kind of). I appreciate it, even if it is not putting her a good light.

    I would like to say that "I" was never "polled" so the poll can't be that sufficient. I would imagine if the "pol" was efficient, then all the people that made Britney's "Womanizer" single on iTunes number one, would have also voted. :)

    Angelina is annoying. This woman who once had blood from her spouse hanging from her neck on a red carpet is now a humanitarian?! WTF?!

    OK. So she adopted babies from another country, so did Madonna and a lot of other non-famous people. So they helped with Katrina build a few homes…Oprah built a neighborhood!

    So people make mistakes. I have! I'm sure you have!

    She's also not a newbie like Heidi and Spencer. She's a girl that worked from the bottom up, she wasn't handed anything.

    I think it's highly commendable that she has come out of her "funk" and is trying to do what's right for her, and her kids. I also think she's a great artist. Sure, I don't always like the songs, but someone does, that's why she's always number one!

  18. 18

    Re: fashionitgirl

    i agree. slutty cyrus is possibly more annoying and obnoxious than speidi

  19. 19

    Re: ribbontie – THANK YOU!!!!! Well said , and I agree 100%

  20. 20

    Re: Gertrude – You mean to add to the grammy she already won :)

  21. 21

    $$ Miley $$ is liked by the young set just like the Joni…while 10000 might hate them (jealous $$) 10000 love them, same with Bad Britt :) Angelina always is beautiful & a very kind , giving person$$ which is very likeable :) HAPPY BIRTHDAY :) MARIO Lopez :)

    new Britney Spears "Womanizer"video tonight on ABC's 20/20

  29. 29

    you need to change that to "Who Do Desparate People Want To Read About The Most???"

    I swear people are starving for something/anything entertaining to the point they will watch crap like Be Paris Hilton's BFF or Rock of Love ugh … how do these shows get on the air

  30. 30

    Eww… Why is Heidi Montag on the list? She is such a nobody. I can't stand that little biotch- is her 15 minutes of fame up yet???
    I don't know about that list, I mean, come on! Jamie Lynn Spears? Jessica Simpson? Nicole Ritchie? Suri and Shiloh? Please, why??? People must not have much else better to do! I would love to know the demographics of this study… And the reliability?? Ick!

  31. 31

    I find it hard to believe that Britney wasn't on that list. Maybe she was #11!

  32. 32

    Sometimes, you are REALLY stupid Perez!! Only because Jess was seen kinda wasted (sometimes, people get bad pix, especially when you have over 50 paparazzi running after ya!!), you are saying she has a plastered face!! Are u sure u got mirrors at home?? You´re NOT perfect!!

  33. 33

    All the comments are about Britney Spears not Angelina Jolie. The only reason she's at #1 is because she was pregnant this year. Next year she'll drop down again. I feel sorry for Brad Pitt, he tolerates her because of the kids. If it wasn't for them, they would have been over a long time ago.

  34. 34

    Than you everyone for discussing Britney. It's good to finally hear some positive feedback on her lately. Kudos to you all!

    Let's all watch 20/20 tonight for the video debut…so excited!

    I'm one of the many out of work and down in spirits right now. I find a great deal of happiness in Britney and think she couldn't have picked a better time to come back. We need some positivity right about now!

  35. 35

    still love miley

  36. 36

    glad not to be flooded w/ stupid greasey britney anymore.

    People can only read what gets printed. We don't get to decide who gets printed, the editors and blog queens choose what gets to our eyes.
    I'd rather hear about some other people but every day it's "The Hills' idiots or Bit'o'brains drinking coffee, or Tom Cruise and Will Smith having Xenus baby.
    Shit gets old with the same stories being told.
    Hey that rhymed, can I copyrite that?

    Yessirree Angie Voight is a celebuspawn who has made out pretty well for herself… she sells lotsa gossip magazines and has the prom king nailed to her via multiple offspring.
    Good going Angie baby. And that was a genius move your handlers pulled to have "private" photos splattered everywhere… breastfeeding is so avant garde … but it predictably makes you at the center of the buzz woo-woo get that Angie on the cover woo-woo.

    Miley rocks, she shouldn't be the most hated!
    That Jamie Lynn Spears slutt should be!
    Team Miley!!

  43. 43

    I like Britney- she's a hard worker and has been through some really tough times as a kid. Finally her family came through for her. Madonna, the bitch, was no support.User

  44. 44

    Re: ParalegalKristi – You go on about Angelina wearing a droplet of blood in a locket (not vials of blood or anything like that) then say now she's a humanitarian (she has been for around 8-10 years, and adopted and did humanitarian work before it became fashionable) yet then say about Britney that "people make mistakes". Its a pity you don't apply that to everyone, not just someone you like.

  45. 45

    Adore Angie but what has Aniston done lately besides date famous guys and show her physical attributes?

  46. 46

    I could not be *more* sick and tried of hearing about those asswipes "Heidi" and "Spencer". If I never heard another word about them ever again, nor saw her smug pug-ugly mug in some photo, it would be too soon! To say they scored low on "likability" would be a gross understatement! I've pretty much hated them on sight. They both look like a pair of overprivileged snotty conceited assholes.

    "The mags have about five seconds to catch your attention as you stand in line at the super market, wondering what the hold up ahead is, and if you're going to shell out the 4 bucks for a mag on top of that already escalating grocery bill, it better be something you really really want, right?"

    I haven't bought a magazine in forever. Reading websites like yours, Perez, it hardly seems necessary. By the time any new end up in a magazine it's already been heard about online for at least a week and is old news by then. The only magazine I bought all year was the one with baby photos of Angelina Jolie's kids. You can't get the exclusive photos online before you see them in the magazine so that's the only reason to buy a magazine lately and they know it.

  48. 48

    I forgot to add that Heidi and Spencer's attention-whoring attitude is the thing I hate about them the most. People who act like that are *SO* obnoxious - especially if the people around them feel they don't even warrant the attention. They're totally a bunch of nobodies from some "reality" TV show (and not "real" celebrities). IMO that's the equivalent of being a contestant on a game show. It doesn't make you anyone special at all and acting like it does just makes me want to laugh you derisively while rolling my eyes at the absurdity.

  49. 49

    The Jolie Pitts deserve it for their humanitarian efforts alone.

  50. 50

    but of course your media whore angelina would place top of the list. she pretty much tells the whole damn world her sex life. because thats the only thing that interest people. oh and whos shocked when her breastfeeding photos are on the cover of W? give me a break. i really really dont like her. i have respect for that woman whatsoever. the way she conducts her life and her children's life is a FUCKING JOKE.

  51. 51

    Re: JS#1fan

    Perez didn't say Jessica looked plastered (as in drunk), he said her face is plastered everywhere (meaning it is on all of the magazines, everywhere)…

  52. 52

    More Britney! Less Miley!

    I don't care much for anyone else. Their stories are boring.

  53. 53

    Just loo at her, Britney is definitely the one we want to get in bed with. See Truth According To T o m

  54. 54

    im glad slutty cyrus was rated that. shes a biotch

  55. 55

    If you havent noticed, Britney is not zero anymore. Her new video is amazing and she wil be back on top in no time!

  56. 56

    I always buy a tabloid if the following ppl are on the cover……………..Britney Spears,Paris Hilton,Tara Reid,Jessica Simpson,Nicole Richie,MK Olsen.

    I like reading about those women,cause they are so fucked up and entertaining.

  57. 57

    funny that people actually want to read angelinas things cause when i see her on a magazine cover all i want to do is throw that thing away. shes annoying and obviously its going to seem like she is popular because every magazine always puts her on everything…its not that people like her..

    id also rather read about jennifer aniston everyday over her because at least she hasnt ever tried to be something shes not

  63. 63

    I can't believe like the whole world knows about the womanizer music video and you have not posted on here!
    Catch up, perez!
    Love you

  64. 64

    Exactly! Which is why Miley will have a very limited career in singing. What life experiences does she have to sing about - which bank to put her money in?
    She has no idea what life is like for the average teenager. Not that many famous people do, but in her case it's worse. And the fact that people now know about her trying to quit her $20 million job just makes her more annoying. Spoiled little cunt.

  65. 65

    Oh.. and The Globe this week again confirms how the Hillbilly Whore and her pedo daddy are trying to quit their $20 million job. I hope everyone who is trying to make a living in these tough times remembers their behavior when the next CD or movie comes out.
