Dear Gossips,

Every December Barbara Walters tell us who she thinks were the 10 most fascinating people of the year. You know the routine. First she reveals the partial list. And then we wait for the show (or read about it on Twitter) to find out who’s #1.

So far, here are the people who made it: Amy Schumer, Tracy Morgan, Misty Copeland, Bernie Sanders, Ronda Rousey, Donna Karan…

All of that makes sense, right?

Oh, and one more. Bradley Cooper.

Bradley Cooper?

I don’t get it. I mean I get Bradley Cooper and that he's a movie star. But was Bradley Cooper the most fascinating movie star of 2015? Apart from people who run Bradley Cooper fansites and Tumblrs, who was google alerting Bradley Cooper all year?

Anyway, there are three spots left. Adele should probably be on there. Taylor Swift too, considering we talked about her a LOT this year before Adele changed the conversation. And Justin Bieber. And Tom Brady. And Donald Trump, unfortunately. And President Obama. And Hillary Clinton. And Ben Affleck. And Malala. Like, so many ands. So how do you burn off a spot with Bradley Cooper?

Yours in gossip,
