(NEW YORK) — When you think of oddball celebrities — and there are many of them — Lady Gaga quite probably comes to mind. So it’s no surprise that she tops a new British poll of the “World’s Best-Loved Eccentrics.”
According to IrishCentral.com, the survey — conducted by the Nature Valley company to promote its new “Sweet & Nutty Bar” — asked 2,000 people to name their favorite strange celebrity. Gaga came in at #1, with others on the list including Ozzy Osbourne, Prince Phillip, Katy Perry’s ex-husband Russell Brand, Johnny Depp, director Tim Burton, singer Bjork and actress Helena Bonham Carter.
A Nature Valley spokesperson said of the survey results, “British people tend to have a soft spot for anyone out of the norm — anyone who doesn’t conform to the ordinary. This is why celebrities such as Prince Philip, Lady Gaga and Russell Brand are close to our hearts. More often than not, eccentric attributes are harmless as they are often have the most brilliant personalities.”
