People magazine has revealed its list of the “25 Most Intriguing of 2009” and Rihanna, Tyler Perry, Mo’Nique and Lady Gaga all made the cut.
As part of its annual year-end list, the magazine honors celebrities that dominated headlines, made career-defining moves and captured our attention throughout the year. Rihanna earned a spot for bouncing back from a tumultuous beginning of the year following the assault incident with Chris Brown, while Lady Gaga expanded her reach even more in ’09.
Mo’Nique has been dubbed “the breakout star” on the list for her Oscar-buzz role in Precious, and Tyler Perry is celebrated as “the mogul.”
The stars share space on the list with names like Kate Gosselin, the Kardashian sisters, Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson and the unlikely singing sensation Susan Boyle.
The issue hits newsstands on Friday.
