Taylor Swift has earned something better than platinum or gold — she's got the respect of Barbara Walters!
The pioneer newswoman has added Taylor to her esteemed list of the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014!

This is the first time Taylor has made the list; so what makes this year different?
Well, not only is gurl the only artist to go platinum the entire year with 1989, she also became the Welcome Ambassador for New York and costarred in The Giver with Jeff Bridges!
Sounds pretty fascinating to us!
Swifty is in good company. Other stars on Barbara's list this year include Neil Patrick Harris, Oprah Winfrey, Chelsea Handler, and Scarlett Johansson.
The rest will be revealed soon enough. Barbara's special will air on December 14!

Barbara Walters is getting ready to POUNCE!
The 83-year-old recently had an interview with One Direction for her 10 Most Fascinating People special and of course she took a moment out to fangirl!
After the special was filmed, Babs was asked about the boy band — including which member was her favorite!

Move over, Kim Kardashian! You had your turn last year!
Alana Thompson — aka Honey Boo Boo — has won herself a spot on Barbara Walters' ego-boosting Most Fascinating People list of 2012!
And Babs already has A LOT to say to the haters:

Maybe it was people protesting the Kardashians being on the list, maybe it was something else, but The Most Fascinating People of 2011 didn't fascinate by the numbers.
Barbara Walters reeled in 8.34 million viewers, scoring a 2.3 demo, but that's a whopping 30% down compared to last year's run!
Steve Jobs was number one, but we think enough people were miffed with the Kardashians being placed on the list, it might have turned some people off… wah-wah…
Whatevs, Babs is still one of the baddest bitches on the block!
