Happy New Year's Eve, how you ~durrin~ everybody? We hope you're ready for one last stunning, flawless, amazing, most likely to snatch the wig off your favorite edition of "Look at Your Year, Look at Your Choices," the Majak Kingdom's pithy take on all things 2010. Already this week we've delved knee deep into some of the biggest scandals of 2010, taken on some of the biggest flops to land with a resounding thud this year, organized our own political rally in honor of the cray cray year of politics in 2010 and yesterday we found ourselves taking on all of the guilty pleasure shows we secretly DV-R and tunes we jam out to in our car. Whew, this blogger is TIRED but if you thought we had run out of things to bitch about this year, you are sadly mistaken.
Today we're listing some of the things that made us go TOTES FAVE, the things that made us scream OH HELL NAY, the events/places/things that got SIDE EYES of epic proportions and all of the I CAN'T EVEN moments you can post a YouTube rant about as we've created our own yearbook for the 2010. Who was the class clown of 2010? Who had the worst case of Senioritis?
Put on your party hat and pop that bottle of cheap ass sparkling wine you got from Kwik Trip as we break it down one more time for you.
First up, we dub our Prom King and Queen of the Year. There were so many dudes who rocked our world in 2010 including Joel McHale, who continued to pull double duty on both NBC's "Community" and "The Soup"
We also adored everything about new addition to "Glee" Darren Criss
But the Prom King of the Year had to be Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio. With both "Shutter Island" and "Inception," Leonardo stared in two films that showed there was room amongst all the schlock for intelligent, interesting and adult films. BUT enough of that, let's flashback to his crappy younger days on "Growing Pains" for our mandatory clip.
Our Prom Queen of 2010 is the one, the only, the Harajuku Barbie herself, Nicki Minaj:
Making everybody's singles that much hotter, Minaj busted out of the mixtape scene in 2010 and promptly snatched Lil Kim's lacefront, set it on fire and buried it next to the remains of her career. A kooky blend of Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes antics married with a cartoon-y sexual persona, Nicki Minaj was probably the most sought after featured artist of the year.
And if you don't like our choice:
Next up, the class clown of 2010. Do we really even have to question who it was?
With the help of the Gregory Brothers and copious amounts of AutoTune, Antoine Dodson helped show us the lighter side of attempted sexual assault. Bravo. Below, his live performance on the BET Hip Hop Awards if you missed it:
We'll give Antoine credit for beating that dead horse like he was Chris Brown in a limo and making enough paper to get him and his family out the hood.
Next up, "Most Likely to Have Severe Neck Problems By Puberty" goes to Willow Smith and her neck-breaking 2010 hit "Whip My Hair."
Bonus, Internet sensation Glozell helps break down the lyrics for us
Next, "Most Likely To Get Hair Styling Ideas From the Kool-Aid Aisle" winner Rihanna and her tune "Only Girl in the World"
We follow this up with "Most Likely to Spend Free Time Listening to Records While Wearing a Cotton Shirt Dress" Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward with their tune "In the Sun"
Bonus, Noel Kristi's dead-on impersonation of Zooey Deschanel
Next, "Most Likely To Never Eat Truffle Fries Again With a NY Times Reporter" M.I.A. and her tune "Born Free"
