DoSomething.org has announced the winners of their 2014 Celebs Gone Good
contest, voted for by both the fans and by the organization's special committee.
For the third consecutive year, Taylor Swift has taken the number one spot. Not only has Swift been dominating the charts since she released her pop project 1989
, but she has also used her position in the spotlight to become a voice for women everywhere, much like Laverne Cox, Beyoncé, Miley Cyrus, and Emma Watson, who rounded out the top five of the list:
[Taylor Swift] moved to New York, had a feminist awakening, dropped her country roots, released the pop album1989, and donated all proceeds from the sale of her single “Welcome to New York” to New York City Public Schools. DoSomething.org has a blank space at the top of this year’s Celebs Gone Good list, and we’ll write her name.
Taylor Swift wasn't the only celebrity to proudly use the "F" word this year. Laverne Cox, Beyoncé, and Emma Watson all publicly declared themselves as feminists in a big way. From Beyoncé's display of feminism at the VMAs to Emma Watson's speech at the UN and involvement with the #HeForShe campaign, these ladies brought feminism to the forefront.
In addition to the top 20 Celebs Gone Good, Do Something also also awarded five up-and-comers as “Celebs To Watch” this year: Becky G, Bethany Mota, R5, Shawn Mendes, and Troye Sivan.
A new category recognized online celebrities who are all about giving back: Markiplier, Lilly Singh, Connor Franta, Taylor Caniff, and Nathan Zed.
