Katy Perry Voted “Coolest” Pop Star Among Teens

Published: Sunday 10th Aug 2014 by David

‘Mannequin’ singer Katy Perry has been named the “coolest” Pop star among teens in a survey carried out by ‘Variety‘ magazine.

How she beat the likes of Justin Bieber, Jason Derulo, Lady GaGa and Beyonce to come out on top?

‘Variety’s findings below…

The publication concludes:

U.S. teenagers are more enamoured with YouTube stars than they are the biggest celebrities in film, TV, and music,” concludes Variety.

The entertainment newspaper ranked 20 of the top YouTube celebrities against an equal number of well-known Hollywood A-listers on a battery of questions “in terms of approachability, authenticity, and other criteria considered aspects of their overall influence.” A score out of 100 was assigned to each entertainer, which is ranked in the graphic below (YouTubers in Red).

These YouTube stars, however, are making significantly less than their Hollywood peers. Business Insider estimated the amount of money YouTubers make from views alone (not counting endorsements), and the richest, PewDiePie, makes about $8.47 million. Katy Perry, the ninth richest celebrity in the world, according to Forbes, raked in $40 million.


Placed at #9 on the tally above, Perry’s popularity not only saw her surpass efforts made by Pop rivals Rihanna and Ke$ha, but saw her beat a number of YouTube’s more bankable personalities with relative ease.

These, including the LA based TravieBased who boasts 642,556 subscribers, Vine’s Liane V who has 2.7 million followers on the outlet and YoMuscleBoii who enjoys the benefit of 698,490 YouTube subscribers.

    Lol Cool? This basic thing will never be cool even if she had to
    Sit on a block of ice
    The day she eventually grows up will be the day I respect and pay attention to her

  6. Naomi August 10, 2014

    Lol what kind of irrelevant title. Call me when she can get a Grammy.

  7. TeenageDreamer August 10, 2014

    Haters are so pressed.

  8. #Dismissed August 10, 2014

    Lmaoooooo this is the reason why no one will ever give her respect. This is the reason why she’ll never get a single Grammy. This is the reason why she won’t be relevant in her 30s. Cuz let’s face it she’s already fading away cuz her new song This is how we do is no where at the top 90 on iTunes. And death at the kunty cats trying to call any body a flop. When their fave has had THREE flop singles. And her album hasn’t surpassed 3,4 million copies. The only thing that slayed with kunty are Roar and Dark horse.

      You can laugh all you want but why isn’t she a serious artist because she makes music for teens. SOMEBODY has to.
      If someone who can write and sing makes music for teens and someone who can’t write or sing makes music for adults are competing, is the one who can sing less credible because of her audience? No. So you need to stop.

      • Jessica August 10, 2014

        B*******. There is enough music out there for teenagers made by actual young people.

    • Carlitos August 10, 2014

      Top 90? It’s actually Top 100. You just said that because it currently sits at 95. It’ll get to the Top 10 soon. Hell, her album has already almost been out for a year and she’s still producing singles. That’s relevant enough. She’s sold ALMOST 3.5 million albums WW…so, what’s your point? You just made yourself look ridiculously unintelligent.

    Beyonce wishes she could.

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) August 10, 2014

      Beyonce wishes she could what??? U mean have 17 grammys, 15 vma’s, Acclaimed albums, Successful movies, Golden globe nominations, Respect from legends( Tina turner, Oprah, Bono, Barbara striesand e.t.c). Now until Katy suckedmywaytothetopperry has all these, den a proper conversation can begin. Till then keep getting ur life from her microwaveable disposable about to be forgotten sunday school type horrible songs written entirely by HER friends MRS LUKE and MAX MARTIN.Now go have a 2 night ROSE BOWL STADIUM FULL OF C** SEATS.

      • africa music lover August 10, 2014

    • King B August 10, 2014

      Sis nooooo she wasn’t ready like damnnn

  10. Jessica August 10, 2014

    The struggle

    • RoyalLorde August 10, 2014

      If it’s a struggle what does that say about the chicks who DIDN’T make it.

      • Jessica August 10, 2014

        Didn’t make what? This list? And whok might you be referring to? Because the only people who would be remotley bothered by this is other teeneage artists. But even the person who wrote the song in your name is above this. Because the main chicks I can think of all have Grammys and other honors darling. Not just Nickelodean awards.

      • Jessica August 10, 2014


      • Jessica August 10, 2014

        So why again, should they care about being crowned ‘coolest’ by a bunch of pubescent teenagers who still live out of their moms wallet?

  11. Whut?!? August 10, 2014

  12. Goop August 10, 2014

    She makes basic ass songs for kids. S*** will end up on a kidz bop album.

  13. Belladonna1363 August 10, 2014

    I wonder how they got there votes & who were the teens they asked? Not saying YouTubers aren’t big because they are I know a lot of them but I always wonder if the only people theses company’s asks are white people. Because I have a feeling they didn’t askes any Latino,Black, Middle Eastern or East Asian American Teens.
    So this list is probably BS.

    • Rey August 10, 2014

      YES! YES! YES!

    • Brian310 August 10, 2014
