Johnny Depp Snatches the Top Spot on AceShowbiz's Top 100 Celebrity Buzz of September 2006 Edition

October 02, 2006 10:42:31 GMT

Looks like Johnny Depp's charisma has grown stronger. Known for his brilliant acting flair and captivating look, the striking actor has really won numerous favors this time to claim the no.1 slot on AceShowbiz's Top 100 Celebrity Buzz of September Edition, replacing Channing Tatum who now has to go one step down as the runner-up of the list.

Coming up to the third and fourth position are popular music artists Shakira and Chris Brown, both delightfully escalating a few notches from their last month positions followed by another young singing talent Jesse McCartney on number five. What's interesting here is that the "Beautiful Soul" singer previously was placed far below on the #60, so this certainly is such a great leap for this New Yorker to make.
