The old adage, “you can’t keep a good woman down” surely applied this year as some of the biggest names in the biz came back to grace us with their unstoppable presence in 2009. Get it girl!
After the infamous abuse
she endured last February, Rihanna
has still managed to prove that revenge is best served topless
. Her album Rated R
reached #4 on the Billboard charts, she nabbed two Grammy nominations for her contribution in “Run This Town,” with Jay Z
and Kanye West
, was named “Woman of the Year
” by Glamour magazine, plus continues to stay ahead of the fashion curve, wardrobe malfunctions
and all. So, take a bow RiRi, 2010 is your time to shine!
I’m sorry. My agent is officially fired. Can we talk about how Sandra Bullock
was the only one who got paid to get naked
with Ryan Reynolds
this year? Maybe it’s the fact that naked or not, Sandra still pulled rank as queen of the box-office, bringing in over $300 million for The Proposal, The Blind Side and All About Steve.
Oh, and what’s that? How about a Best Actress nod from the Golden Globes
and the Critics Choice Awards
? Yes, please! Money talk aside, I just want to know what skin cream this woman uses. She’s 45 and hotter than most of the tweeners attempting to be Hollywood starlets nowadays. Maybe it’s something in her water, maybe it’s the way she deals with baby momma drama
or maybe it’s because she beat out Betty White
for Jesse James
’ affection. Whatever it is, Sandra claims, “Home, family and kids are first priority. My greatest joy is making our home what it’s supposed to be.” All together now: Awwww.
Not since my childhood (as if I would ever tell you how long ago that was) have I seen The Muppets
dominate pop culture like they did this year. From presenting at the Daytime Emmy’s
to making fashion cameos
alongside Marc Jacobs
to even dating celebrities
. It’s no surprise that these friendly faces deserve a little recognition for all the hard work they’ve put in over the years. And that Miss Piggy
, I tell you. So let’s just be honest with ourselves: This is a Muppet’s world, we’re all just living in it.
Is it just me or does anyone else burst into the “I’m Every Woman” chorus when they see Whitney Houston
? Whether you think about that 80’s perm, her throwback performance in The Bodyguard
or her tumultuous marriage to Bobby Brown
, Whitney has finally put her demons aside
and brought back the heat for the best diva comeback
of the year! Nobody can do it like Ms. Houston can, and with an AMA performance that literally shut.it.down
with genuine talent instead of publicity stunts…cough…Adam Lambert
…cough…Whitney has proven again that she deserves to be number one
. Besides, who else can sing herself right out of her clothes
