Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Aside from being Twitter’s most followed celebrity and one of the highest earning celebrities of late, Justin Bieber has just been named the most overexposed celebrity of 2014 by Forbes, beating out several reality stars thanks to his wild behavior.

Gathering an overexposed rating of 67% through public opinion polling based on 46 attributes conducted by Forbes and E-Score, Bieber is the only person on the list that does not star or have not starred in a reality show.

However, thanks to his highly publicized displays of wild behavior, which include allegedly spitting on people, using drugs, attacking paparazzi and getting involved in several lawsuits, the 20-year-old “Baby” singer snagged the top spot.

Next on the list is reality star Kim Kardashian with 61%, though her public image following the birth of her daughter North with fiance Kanye West last July has went to a downward slope.

Taking the third spot is Lindsay Lohan with 59%, thanks to her slew of run-ins with the police and her string of comeback projects, most recently the premiere of her reality show on OWN.

Singer and Miley Cyrus comes next with 57%, crediting her overexposure to her new look, borderline kitschy stunts and style, and enthusiasm for twerking, followed by the child beauty pageant contestant Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson, whose TLC reality show is on its third season.

At number six is talk show host and Kardashian matriarch/momager Kris Jenner with 55%, tying with Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, who has her own clothing line and book while juggling her duties as a new mom to son Lorenzo. Paris Hilton follows with 53%, though she has been seemingly absent from the spotlight these past years.

Rounding off the top ten are Kardashian sisters Kourtney and Khloe, with 50% and 49% overexposure ratings respectively.
