It’s almost Thanksgiving so it’s time to give thanks. 2013 has been an entertaining year and that’s due in large part to the many sexy, funny, and even annoying celebrity women of the world. Here are 50 ladies we’d like to thank for all that they did this year. Hopefully we didn’t leave anyone out, but if we did, well, there’s always next year.
View who we were thankful for in 2012.
50 Gwyneth Paltrow

Thank you, Miley Cyrus, for sticking your tongue out 15 times on Saturday Night Live, for ruining a perfectly good Michel Jordan jersey, for being naked in your “Wrecking Ball” video, and for spawning countless parodies of said video. Oh, and for the twerking. Can’t forget the twerking.
47 Sinead O’Connor
Thank you, Sinead O’Connor, for writing several epic letters to Miley Cyrus, which then let to this almost equally as epic mashup of your song and Miley’s.
46 Eiza Gonzalez
