Bill Gates and Angelina Jolie are the most admired people in the world for the third year running, according to an annual study compiled by YouGov. The study looks at the top 20 most admired males and females in the world.

The Microsoft founder and actor-humanitarian have come out on top since separate female and male categories were introduced. (Before that, Gates came out No. 1 in every survey YouGov conducted).

  • Following Gates and Jolie are Barack and Michelle Obama. The study entailed compiling the interviews of more than 37,000 people in 35 countries.
  • Entertainers lead the charge in the female top 20, garnering 14 of the top slots. Entrants include Oprah Winfrey at No. 3 (up 1 slot over last year), Emma Watson at No. 6 (up 7 slots), Taylor Swift at No. 9 (up 5 slots), Madonna at No. 10 (up 2 slots) and Priyanka Chopra at No. 12 (new to the list).
  • The male list is more of a hodgepodge, featuring men from business, sports and entertainment. Entrants include Jackie Chan at No. 3 (up 1 slot from last year), Warren Buffet at No. 12 (up 3 slots from last year), Elon Musk at No. 14 (new to the list) and Donald Trump at No. 17 (up 1 slot from last year).
  • Thirteen Americans—six men and seven women—make the list, including newcomers Musk, Michael Jordan and Elizabeth Warren.
  • The exact methodology of the survey, per YouGov, involved asking interviewees:  “Thinking about people alive in the world today, which [man or woman] do you most admire?”


Kate Hudson’s new sparkler is sparking engagement rumors. On Tuesday night, the Bride Wars star attended her first public event since sharing that she’s pregnant, and she was photographed wearing diamond bands on her left ring finger.

Granted, the 39-year-old was at the opening of a new Harry Winston store in Hong Kong, so sporting diamond jewels certainly wasn’t out of place.

  • Last week, Hudson shared the news that she and partner Danny Fujikawa are expecting a girl. “SURPRISE!!! If you’ve wondered why I’ve been so absent on my social channels it’s because I have never been more sick!” Hudson wrote to her fans.
  • Previously, Hudson was married to Chris Robinson, with whom she shares son Ryder, and was engaged to Matt Bellamy, with whom she shares Bingham Hawn


Drake ended up losing a $5,000 bet with Twitch streamer Ninja when he hooked up with him once again for a round of Fortnite.

Just like they had done last month when Drake joined Ninja, along with Travis Scott and Ju Ju Smith-Schuster, to break a Twitch streaming record for concurrent views, Drake decided to join him for some online gaming on Tuesday night – only this time, the rapper decided to up the stakes.

Drake is a huge Fortnite fan who plays the game via Playstation 4 under the name “TheBoyDuddus.” He says he got friendly with Ninja by watching him play via Twitch. In Tuesday night’s stream, Drake was apparently playing from a recording studio in London, with the rapper at one point mentioning potential lagging issues from playing on the EU server.

The pair racked up at least one duos victory, before Drake challenged Ninja to one last game before he had to “go to work,” and staking $5,000 on it, promising to donate to Ninja’s account if he won. The professional streamer did so, notching up an impressive 16 kills.

 “Oh my god,” Drake could be heard laughing upon the end of the game. “I/m a man of my word, I got you,” he says, “send me the info.”

It was recently claimed that Ninja, real name Tyler Blevins, could be earning as much as $1 million a month from playing the Battle Royale mode of Fortnite
