      Erm…its only takes into account July.. And what do you mean “in our faces everyday”? She dosent really attend events does she? Still a bit surprising though she didnt make the list even if it was for a month only..Although i kinda get the feeling that the bulk of OmoT’s fan base are the older people anyway, and maybe males…

      That’s because popular is not synonymous with influential.
      . If it was by google search. Kim K would top the 100 most influential list every year, as she has topped the list for worlds most googled celeb for about 4 years consecutively.
