Taylor Swift was able to fake surprise yet again this year, when she topped DoSomething.org's list of "Top 20 Celebs Gone Good of 2013." The 24-year-old singer beat out ex-boyfriend Harry Styles, who was honored at the No. 2 spot along with the rest of One Direction.

The list is curated not only according to the amount of money a celebrity has given, but awareness raised and time spent helping others. Swift's efforts include performing to raise funds for the homeless and assisting a number of organizations in Tennessee, as well as donating $100,000 to the Nashville Symphony in honor of her birthday.

“It’s pretty amazing that the top two spots on the list are held by celebrities under age 25,” said Naomi Hirabayashi, DoSomething.org CMO. “This rising generation is using their money and star power for good.”

Other charitable celebrities include Beyonce, Jennifer Lawrence and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Justin Bieber, who was named the second most philanthropic celebrity last year, fell to the twentieth spot, likely because he was too busy getting into trouble to volunteer much in 2013.
