Lady Gaga Is 'Time' Magazine's Second Most Influential Icon of the Decade

The only person more influential than Lady Gaga? Burmese political icon Aung San Suu Kyi, according to online voters. That's some decent company to keep

Time magazine recently asked readers to vote for the public figure who's been the most influential over the past decade, March Madness bracket-style. And the winner was almost Lady Gaga

Beating out Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling and President Barack Obama (!!!), the championship match came down to Gaga and legendary Burmese freedom fighter Aung San Suu Kyi. Yep, the "Born This Way" singer was in the same tournament as one of the most prominent political figures of all time. The power of the Internet, ladies and gentlemen.

In the end, Aung San Suu Kyi won out over Gaga despite her giant army of Little Monsters, which is nearing 37 million on Twitter. But second place really doesn't seem too bad when you're talking about the most influential person of the past decade

You'll get 'em next decade, Gaga!

August 29: Little Orphan Ed?

The "Don't" singer, Ed Sheeran, makes a special appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" as the lovable orphan, Annie. Donning the famous red dress, and the equally famous red hair, we think Sheeran would make a great understudy. The best part though? His little dog friend, Sandy on that skateboard.
