2011 has been a year of disappointments and failures, which is a shame for the celebs involved, but it’s great for us!
In between all of the box office bombs and downward spirals were the greatest entertainment moments of the year!
Check out which train wrecks made the list after the cut!
#10. Chris Brown Loses His Mind At Good Morning America
It looks like those anger management classes the court ordered Chris Brown to participate in didn’t do the singer much good. During an interview with ABC’s Good Morning America, the interviewer asked a pre-approved question about the Rihanna assault and instead of answering it, Chris Brown decided it was a better option to throw a hissy fit. The lip-syncher went back to the ABC green room where he threw a chair through a window, then, for whatever reason, stripped off his shirt and stormed out into the street wearing nothing but his jeans. And that’s just one of Brown’s outcries this year! He had a handful of public gay slurs, fist fights, and not to mention his repeated use of the R word. Chris Brown is kicking off our 2011 screw ups!
#9. Christina Aguilera Forgets The… Uh… What Were We Saying?
Now we’re not professional singers or anything, but we’re pretty sure that one of the main preparation methods you have to do before you go sing in front of millions of people would be to learn the words. We could be wrong, but we’re pretty sure we’re right. While kicking off Super Bowl XLV, Christina Aguilera started The Star Spangled Banner with a bang, but it all went downhill from there. The former Mickey Mouse club star forgot the words to not only the most famous song in America, but a song that she’s sang flawlessly many times before.
#8. The Jonas Formerly Known As ‘The Hot One’ Is No Longer Hot
Oh how the times have changed. Two years ago you couldn’t get the Jonas Brothers off your radio, and now they can’t get on there if they Bribed Justin Bieber to be on one of their tracks. Just how bad has it gotten for Joe Jonas? Not only was his album bad for a Jonas, it was bad for anyone! For comparison, the last Jonas Brothers album debut at #1 on the Billboard charts with 525,000 copies sold in its first week alone. Little brother Nick moved 82,000 copies in his first week. And Joe’s solo venture? He’s sold only 30, 000 since it came out in October. Ouch!
#7. NBC’s The Playboy Club Drowns Before It Even Hits The Water
Every September the four big networks prepare themselves for their new shows. Let’s face it, most of them barely get past their first full season. But for NBC, they thought they had struck gold with their new scripted drama The Playboy Club. Not only did they think they could ride the coattails of Mad Men fans since the show was set in the same era, and who wouldn’t want to watch aspiring Playboys? As it turns out… Everyone. Not only did the show not get picked up for a second season, it didn’t even last the first! It barely lasted the first month! After only 3 episodes on-air, the show was yanked.
#6. Canada Loses Its Shit
Canada is known as a nice country. They don’t start wars, they have a low murder rate, and you never see them riot. Unless, of course, you mess with their hockey. Canadian team the Vancouver Canucks made it all the way to the Stanley Cup finals, but when they lost in the final game and the Boston Bruins took the cup, Canada lost their minds! Riots broke out in the streets of British Columbia where people were flipping trucks, breaking storefront windows and lighting police cars on fire. All because a Canadian team lost a hockey game. Seriously.
#5. The Hangover 2 Comes Out; No One Laughed
The first Hangover wasn’t just a fan favorite, it was one of the most critically acclaimed comedies of all time, and the most of this generation, so when they announced that there was a Hangover 2 on the way, people were lined up for weeks waiting to get their hands on a pair of tickets to see it (figuratively, of course. This isn’t a Prince concert). But when the movie finally dropped, you could almost hear the audience cringe at ever bad joke. And the story line? It was almost frame-for-frame with the Hangover 1. A story about three friends who get drunk, black out, and have no idea what happened. It was hated by both audiences and critics and probably the cast of the movie.
#4. John Galliano goes Mel Gibson
Before 2011, designer John Galliano was known only by the regulars at New York Fashion Week. Today he’s known by most people who have a TV, because he’s out of his fucking mind. The former head designer for Christian Dior’s fashion house decided that Paris Fashion Week, while cameras were recording him, was a good time to praise Hitler in a weird antisemitic rant that, not surprisingly, went viral.
#3. The Sex Scene That Wasn’t
If you’re under the age of 17, or you know someone under the age 17, or you’ve seen someone under the age 17 in the past 5 years, you’re surely to know what Twilight is. The first three movies were basically a build up to the big sex scene between the movie stars Kristen Stewart and her real-life/on-screen boyfriend Robert Pattinson. But when the movie premiered back on November 18th, fans flooded Twitter with complaints about the scene. Why were millions upon millions of teen girls so upset? Well, the sex scene consisted nothing more of a shirtless kiss. Not very passionate for two people who are doing the ugly behind closed doors!
#2. The Big 3 Flop In The Finals
Looks like Lebron brought more disappointment to South Beach then he did talent. When James announced he was following former Toronto Raptor Chris Bosh in a move to join Dwayne Wade and the Miami Heat, they promised not one championship, not two, not three, not… well, basically the promised a lot of championships. But when their time came to shine, Lebron proved critics that said he regularly choked in important fourth quarters right, and let the lead of game 6, which would ultimately be the winning game, go to Dirk Nowtizki and the Dallas Mavericks. It wouldn’t be as bad if they lost to the Lakers, who were in a position to be threepeat champions, but Dallas wasn’t even slated to win the West Coast Championship, let alone the whole thing! The three young stars of Miami thought they’d have no problem beating the team of veterans, but after a devastating series, the Texas team came out on top, and Miami was left to wallow in the regret of that first over-the-top press conference.
#1. James Franco And Anne Hathaway Prove Critics Right
What’s a better way to make the Oscars cool, hip and appealing to a younger audience then to put James Franco and Anne Hathaway on them? As it turns out, probably anything. The show that people wait all year for was highly talked about and anticipated thanks to the two young hosts, but when i came time for the awards, it was a huge flop. People widely suspected that Franco was high, and when you take Anne Hathaway’s too-much enthusiasm in comparison, it was almost painful to watch. Looks like Award Show Host is one hat that just won’t fit Franco’s big head.
