The Top 10 Biggest Celeb News Stories of 2011
From Charlie Sheen’s meltdown to William and Kate’s wedding to the sad loss of Amy Winehouse, we’ve got the 10 biggest celeb news stories of 2011 right here!
Looking back on 2011, we were both “winning” and losing when it came to our fave celebs. The marriages were bigger and better than ever and the divorces caught us all off guard (with one major Kardashian exception…). We learned from Charlie Sheen not to pick a fight with a warlock, witnessed the best way ever to announce a pregnancy as demonstrated by Beyonce, and are still applauding Kate Middleton for bringing back lace sleeves on bridal gowns. Counting down from 10 to one, check out our picks for the biggest celeb highs and lows of 2011!
10. Scarlett Johansson’s, Blake Lively’s, and Everyone Else’s Nude Photo Scandals
Gee, there sure were a lot of celebrity nude photo scandals this year, weren’t there? As always, there was a lot of speculation every time a new batch of photos appeared about whether or not they were real or Photoshopped, but the vast majority of them turned out to be real. Hacker Christopher Chaney was a busy boy. It’s a good thing the FBI was on top of it, though; happily, they caught him in October.
9. Ashton Kutcher & Demi Moore Go Splitsville
Questions of infidelity on Ashton’s part caused Demi to announce their divorce in November after six years of marriage. We Tweeted our sympathies.
8. The Death of Amy Winehouse
RIP Amy Winehouse. The troubled and talented chanteuse passed away in July from alcohol poisoning in her London home. She was just 27, joining the phenomenon of the 27 Club where musicians like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Kurt Cobain all passed away at the same age.
7. Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison’s Questionable Marriage
Who didn’t cringe at this one? Who isn’t still cringing at it? Actor Doug Hutchinson married teen bride Courtney Stodden at Las Vegas in May. He was 51. She was… 16?! Um, hello jailbait! Stodden’s mother signed a consent form, though, allowing the marriage to proceed; the two have since kept on showering the media with photos of their icky, icky romance. Like this one. Blech.
6. Justin Bieber’s Baby Drama
And I was like, baby, baby oh! The Biebs was accused of being the father of Mariah Yeater’s son in a paternity lawsuit that has since been dropped. Yeater, however, just brought it back up again in time for the end of the year. Ugh!
