Why is Jay-Z no 15?

When Beyonce revealed her baby bump to the world after a performance at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, the camera cut to a beaming Jay-Z bro-ing out (in the front row, of course) with Kanye West, his protege, BFF and partner-in-rhyme on Watch the Throne, the long-awaited majestic masterpiece that became Jay-Z’s 12th No. 1 album. So with his biggest-rapper-alive status still very much intact, his wife’s most-perfect-woman-alive status equally secure and a baby on the way, Jay-Z is the man who has everything -- even the ability to rename the Nets the Brooklyn Nets. Everything except, of course, a word that rhymes with “diaper.”

Why is Charlie Sheen No 16?

Charlie Sheen was fired from his job at Two and a Half Men, accused of anti-Semitism, taken to the hospital for severe abdominal pains, underwent rehab at his home, had his sons Bob and Max removed from his home, divorced Brooke Mueller, moved in with so-called goddesses Bree Olsen and Natalie Kenly, embarked on a massive tour called "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option Show," began the web series Sheen’s Korner, and turned “duh, winning," "Vatican assassin," "tiger blood," and "rock star from Mars" into national catchphrases. No, we’re not going through his story. Sheen managed all of this in one year, and there are still a few months left. And we though James Franco was busy.

Why is Alexander Skarsgard No 17?

Television hasn’t produced a sex symbol like Alexander Skarsgard since George Clooney outgrew his ER scrubs in the '90s. But thanks to his role as a bicurious bloodsucker in HBO’s True Blood, Skarsgard has become an object of desire for women everywhere. And luckily for them, the strapping Swede is newly single, since he and Kate Bosworth called it quits after nearly two years together. At least that gives Skarsgard plenty of time to focus on his burgeoning film career, which kicked off with the remake of the ultraviolent cult classic Straw Dogs, in which Skarsgard plays a psychopathic townie out for blood. What a stretch.

Why is Pep Guardiola No 18?

Everyone knows that during their never-ending dominance of European club football, FC Barcelona has consistently rolled out an arsenal of some of the deadliest and most skilled players in the world. How could a team that has the likes of Lionel Messi, Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta at its disposal ever lose? Just ask the Miami Heat. The fact is, it takes a great coach to make sure that all the pieces, no matter how talented, fall into line and play like a cohesive unit, especially when it’s stacked with superstars that can influence the game’s outcome with a single play. One look at Barcelona’s fearsome and fluid attack, and it’s clear that Pep Guardiola has done just that.

Why is Novak Djokovic No 19?

While the whole world was weighing in on the Nadal vs. Federer debate, Novak Djokovic was quietly (OK, maybe not so quietly) putting together one of the most impressive seasons in the history of men’s tennis. Before the 2011 French Open semifinals -- which he lost to Roger Federer -- the wily Serb won 41 straight matches, including the Australian Open and Wimbledon. Just when it looked liked Rafael Nadal was set to begin his long reign atop the men’s ATP rankings, the notoriously hotheaded Djokovic quieted all the outside noise, put all his tools together and reminded us why, right now, men’s tennis is the most exciting sport on the planet, after defeating Nadal at the 2011 Wimbledon Championships and the 2011 US Open.

Why is Piers Morgan No 20?

No one will be more thrilled that Piers Morgan made the list than Piers Morgan himself. The shameless self-promoter and host of the hour-long chat show Piers Morgan Tonight, which took over Larry King’s time slot on CNN at the start of the year, found himself in hot water when he became embroiled in the hacking scandal that rocked Britain this past summer. But if his recent interview with Christine O’Donnell -- in which the loopy Tea Partier called Morgan “rude” before walking off the set -- is any indication that Morgan's bravado has anything but subsided, that’s a good thing. His energy will come in handy when wife, Celia Walden, gives birth to their son in November.

Why is Barack Obama No 21?

No one could have predicted that just three years removed from his election, Barack Obama would be in the position he's in now. With just one year until the next election and his poll numbers at an all-time low, the embattled president is running out of time to convince Americans he’s the man for the job. Even after the revelation that Osama bin Laden had been killed, a stubborn unemployment rate alongside a congressional majority that opposes everything he does -- and the common perception that he is both weak-willed and detached -- mean that Obama could have a tougher time getting re-elected than any of us could have ever imagined. Now Obama's "Buffett Rule," which would tax the rich, has led Senate Democrats to offer a millionaires’ tax instead. While some say Obama has little to lose by alienating Wall Street, only time will tell.
