Taylor Swift tops Billboard's 21 Under 21 list



taylorswift092810.jpgWhile you'd think Justin Bieber would be a shoo-in to take the title crown on Billboard's 21 Under 21 list, Taylor Swift takes home the gold for getting picked on. But to be fair, it's the 20-year-old's last chance to win, really, so we should let her enjoy it.

"Ms. Swift may have been dissed by Kanye (West) while the world was watching, but she handled 'Taylorgate' with the class of a woman rather than a teenager," Billboard writes. "Lots of young stars will be making waves over the next year, but Taylor is geared up to hit the music world like a tsunami. Brace for the impact."

Bieber does manage to come in second, leading a top five that includes Selena Gomez, Charice and Soulja Boy, another 20-year-old who likely is getting a high spot because he's almost out of the running. But we'll be honest with you, dear readers -- we have no idea who half these people are, so we're just going to give you the list and call it a day.
