BEYONCÉ came in at #32. MTV.COM notes, "She just partnered with the U.N. to serve as the soundtrack for WORLD HUMANITARIAN DAY earlier this month, and much like GAGA, in addition to her undeniable influence over music and fashion, she has also teamed up with a number of other good causes, including working with the OBAMA Administration on the 'Get Moving' campaign."
JENNIFER LOPEZ was ranked #38. She was applauded for her work with the BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF AMERICA and her own fund, The LOPEZ FAMILY FOUNDATION, which helps women and children across the globe.
