Taylor Swift’s charity this year went beyond dating barely legal boybanders. She also gave $4 million to the Country Hall of Fame Museum, a donation big enough to earn her the honor of the this year’s top “celeb gone good” by DoSomething.org.
The 23-year-old country music star (whose career has been defined largely by dating EVERYONE and then singing about it) was also cited for being the youngest person ever to win the Ripple of Hope Award from the Kennedy Center Honors (it probably helped that she dated a Kennedy), as well as her work helping young people with cancer.
Pink, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Justin Bieber’s maybe ex-girlfriend/nemesis Selena Gomez were also included in the top 20.
