Also known as IISuperwomanII, Singh has 5.8 million Twitter followers, over 14.5 million YouTube subscribers, and 8.6 million Instagram followers.

The Indo-Canadian is based in L.A. now, and NBC just announced that she would be hosting a new late-night talk show, replacing Carson Daly.

Katy Perry
Pop titan Katy Perry needs no introduction. It’s also not surprising that an artist with such a huge following among the youth will have such an impact as an influencer. Perry currently has 32 million YouTube subscribers, 107 million Twitter followers and 78.2 million Instagram followers.

Snoop DoggEXPAND

Snoop Dogg
