Miley Cyrus Winning Time's Person Of The Year Poll!! But Voter Fraud Accusations Sour Her Lead!!

miley cyrus time cover person of the year 2013

Could Miley Cyrus make the cover of TIME Magazine? She could if fans have their way!

The We Can't Stop singer is currently dominating the reader poll for their annual Person Of The Year honor.

Indian leader Narendra Modi is in second place with about 13%, and NSA leaker Edward Snowden is right behind with about 12%.

Jimmy Fallon and Angelina Jolie are also on the list with around 1% each.

Time's editors ultimately decide the Person Of The Year on their own, but winning the poll is still one heck of an honor! But someone may be trying to keep that feather out of Mileybird's cap!

Two programmers claim they've figured out how to hack the poll Scandal-style to cast extra votes for Miley! But Time isn't biting. They said:

Anjelica Huston!

PETA is honoring the Smash actress as their Person of the Year for 2012, thanks to her hard hitting exposé on chimps in the entertainment industry.

Along with her expose (which started in 2008), Anjelica has tackled the fur industry as well as New York's horse drawn carriages.

Now the actress joins the likes of Bill Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres, and Russell Simmons as previous winners.

Congrats Anjelica! Way to SMASH down barriers for animal rights!

LOLz!

Sarah Palin Blasts TIME For Naming Barack Obama The Person Of The Year

We guess she isn't a fan. Big shocker there, right?

Barack Obama was recently bestowed a prestigious honor, but there's one lady from Alaska who isn't happy and is voicing her OUTRAGE!!!

Sarah Palin reached out to, who else?, FOX News and said it was "silly" that Obama had won Time's person of the year, especially since one isn't even sure he is even an actual person!! He could be an alien for all she knows!!

Okay, she didn't say that last remark literally, but she definitely suggested it with her piercing eyes. Just look at those retinas; they STILL want to see a birth certificate!

The best part of this is when Palin says that no one should take Obama's award seriously since after all she was once named a person of interest by Time Magazine, so they obviously don't know what they're talking about.

Ouch! Um, was that a backhanded compliment or insult? And who was it directed to? And when is your reality show coming back?

Ch-ch-check it out by clicking PLAY directly (above) !!!

Morrissey has been named PETA's UK person of the year for 2011.

Morrissey, ex-lead singer of the band The Smiths, has been an activist, fighting for the animals for quite some time now.

He even named one of their albums, Meat is Murder.

So throughout his summer tour, Morrissey always made sure to have information booths with PETA volunteers ready to share knowledge and vegetarian starter kits.

When Morrissey heard he was named person of the year he immediately wrote PETA's cofounder, Ingrid Newkirk, a letter that said:

Russell Simmons Named PETA's Person Of The Year

Filed under: Music MinuteAwardzPETA

Russell Simmons has now joined the ranks of Bill Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey and more as PETA's person of the year!

Ever since Simmons learned about the yogic principal of 'ahimsa,' which means "doing no harm," he has rejected the meat industry.

His outspoken public advocacy of peace and respect for all living beings, regardless of race, religion, gender or even species is what earned him the title PETA's Person of the Year 2011.

Simmons said:

"The horrible abuse of animals is the worst karmic disaster in the history of human kind. The work that PETA does to combat this catastrophe is amazing.

I'm truly humbled to be chosen as this year's Person of the Year, but the praise should go to the hundreds of thousands of volunteers that are on the ground doing the work. I accept this honor on their behalf."

PETA's Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said:

"Simmons' philosophy—that everyone should stick up for the little guy—is one that everyone can follow."

So c'mon everyone, let's follow him!

Live a life of peace and respect for everyone and everything around you!
