2015 was an year of gossips, controversies, breakups and make-ups and much more. Here’s all who ruled the year:
Taylor Swift dominated the world with her 1989 world tour, songs, controversies, relationship and #SquadGoals.
Country star turned popstar Taylor Swift made a successful career transition into the pop arena and made us swoon to the tunes of songs like Style, Bad Blood and Wildest Dreams. She did 85 shows across the world, all sold-out.
She popularised the term squad and squad goals. In her Bad Blood music video she featured her famous friends like Selena Gomez, Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Serayah, Lena Dunham, Jessica Alba, Karlie Kloss and many others. She went out dining, shopping, holidaying and touring with her girlfriends making us all go jealous.
She began dating after two years. Her British friend Ellie Goulding hooked her up with her friend, Scottish DJ/Producer Calvin Harris. The couple has been dating since March and are still going all smooth and fine, even after the paparazzi and gossip columns wrote them off after Calvin’s “happy deal” incident. [The couple is going to ring in the New Year together; Worry not Swifties].
Swift was also in the news for some controversies like that brief fued with Nicki Minaj and the one surrounding a certain radio host who she accused of groping her rear end. Taylor Swift was literally everywhere everyday of the year.
Kim Kardashian and her pregnancy!
Kim K is the original queen of gossips. She started the year complaining about her infertility issues and then how happy and proud she was of Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner. Mid year she announced she was expecting baby number two with her rapper husband Kanye West. For several months, she and her bump ruled the red carpet and LA streets. On December 5, she welcomed a son – Saint West and is now busy with her weight loss thing. And oh, she released her own line of emojis too, called kimojis.
Earlier this year, the stepfather of Kardashian sisters and father of Kendall and Kylie Jenner revealed he was transitioning into a woman. He so did and introduced himself as Caitlyn Jenner – the no more Bruce. All throughout the year the newest (but the oldest!) woman of the Kardashian-Jenner was in news for car crash, awards etc. In December the tabloids reported Caitlyn isn’t too happy being a woman and wants to go back to being Bruce. What!?
Kylie Jenner! Of course.
She grew up seeing her older Kardashian sisters ruling the paparazzi glare and making money for no good reason. Kylie worked hard and harder this year to dethrone Kim. She sported various wigs and high-end designer outfits to steal the limelight. She got lip enhancement surgery and launched several of her own product lines. Her relationship with the relatively unknown rapper Tyga was much publicised. She turned (only!) 18 in style in August. In a magazine interview she revealed she hates applying makeup and is a normal girl. Really!? Is that really coming from the Kardashian-Jenner family member?
Firstly, Zayn Malik quit the band to ‘be a normal 22-year old’. He then dumped his fiancé Perrie Edwards over a text message and later sexted Lily Allen. Then he revealed his plans of pursuing a solo career. He ended the year hand-in-hand with model Gigi Hadid.
The other members of the band revealed they were taking a break in 2016 sending their countless fans into screaming and crying. Harry Styles was in the news for his floral red carpet suits, Liam had a breakup, Niall was linked to Selena Gomez and Louis Tomlinson is expecting his first baby! With who? With a one-time fling girlfriend.
Lady Gaga is no more the popstar wearing a meat dress on the red carpet. She has mellowed down. Gaga wore gowns on the red carpets (no more dramatic outfits :/), she got engaged to her longtime partner actor Taylor Kinney, toured with Tony Bennet and made her acting debut as The Countess and hell yes, she is nominated for a Golden Globe!!
The shape-shifter and challenge-taker actor was in the news for his single status and many movies that released this year. He was busy talking about his Southpaw training, weight gain after Nightcrawler, Everest and Demolition.
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and her figure
The X Factor UK judge received a lot of flak over her stick-thin figure. Her marriage to Jean Bernard crumbled. On professional front, her group was first runner-up at this year’s finale.
Ben Affleck – Jennifer Garner
Bennifer 2.0 announced their separation on June 31 after ten years of marriage. Ben was, alleged by the media, to have slept with their three kids’ nanny. For months there was news of them getting back together and Jennifer pregnant with their fourth baby. Sadly, these were just rumours. They aren’t back and neither is Jen pregnant.
First, she made a huge cry when she wasn’t nominated in the Song of the Year category at the 2015 MTV VMAs. She elaborated how fair-skinned and tall girls have it easy than women of color. She dissed Miley Cyrus onstage. She and rapper boyfriend Meek Mill might be engaged, as per reports. In December her older brother was accused of molesting a teenage girl and she was criticised for performing at a controversial event.
After a turbulent two years Bieber mended ways this year. His last album Journal was a let-down but Biebs bounced back with Purpose. What Do You Mean and Sorry are rocking the charts. He has made clear he might get back with his ex-flame Selena Gomez. His nude pictures stormed the internet and magazines. In December, there were reports of him banging Kourtney Kardashian!! Like seriously!
Gomez made headlines with her new music and new fashion sense which was much more mature than her Disney inspired looks. She posed nude for her album cover shoot. She ditched her bra in music videos and photo shoots. She still has feelings for Justin Bieber; we all know that. She told us she has Lupus. She was linked to Zedd, Niall Horan, Justin Bieber (again!), amongst others. She performed at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show proving she is coming of age.
She might be pint-sized but she does make big stories. Early this year she licked on donuts and exclaimed she hates America. (Now America hates her). She gave us a lot of feminist advices. She released her new single Focus and then some Christmas songs.
After a hiatus, she’s back and the world can’t stop saying hello. Adele released her first single in years and conquered the charts and hearts. Soon she’s starting her tour to promote her latest album 25.
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom
Khloe Kardashian made news with her sexy new figure. Then came in picture her ex Lamar Odom who was hospitalised after drug overdose. Koko was by his side and put her romance with current boyfriend on hold. She withdrew/postponed her divorce hearings but made it clear Lamar is her past and she isn’t getting back with him.
Lovato’s Cool for the Summer became summer song of the year. She cut her long mane, became more confident in her curvaceous body, made up with her childhood friend Selena Gomez and launched her beauty line.
He is the biggest name of the Scientology religion and was bombarded by the attacks of other former Scientologists. Though he didn’t speak anything about these allegations and incidents the headlines did make their way. His daughter with Nicole Kidman secretly got married without the presence of her parents.
Miley Cyrus, obviously!
The new-age Madonna + Britney Spears is never off the gossip news. Cyrus revealed herself naked all throughout the year. She hosted the MTV VMAs and wore outrageous clothes. She dropped a surprise album and is now on tour doing the antics she’s famous for. But she also did charities and raised her voice for good causes.
The Oscar winning actress was in the news for her movies, wardrobe malfunctions, toilet etiquettes and for speaking against the gender wage-gap.
Actor Charlie Sheen shocked everyone by revealing he has been HIV+ since the past two years. Some of his ex-girlfriends have accused him of keeping them in dark about his illness and risking their lives.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were busy with their film By The Sea. The couple talked candidly about their marital lifestyle and how they’re just like any other married couple. Jolie also proudly said she’s happy with her menopause phase.
The 19-year old actress and performer rocked the red carpet, critics and gave the world some much needed advices. She also featured in Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood music video.
