Top 5 Events in 2013 that Pop’ed Our World: Amanda Bynes Mental Breakdown


In honor of the New Year, we thought that we would count down the top 5 events that pop’ed our world. Number 4 on our countdown is….Amanda Bynes’ mental breakdown.

When we started 2013, I don’t think any was expecting our beloved Nickelodeon star of the 90s (sorry Kenan and Kel but you ain’t got nothing on Bynes) to go down the path that she did. We starting to get a hint of something when Amanda started to get into legal problems back in March 2012. But then from their it started to just spiral out of control. But it wasn’t until she debuted her “new look” in the spring of 2013 that we finally meet Amanda Bynes (now with wigs and cheek dermals!). This Amanda was pretty much a train wreck and at the time, we had to clue what was wrong with the once popular actress. She was pretty much the new Lindsay Lohan. 

After she started some fires (she’s legitimately started fires), her parents put her on a conservatorship (like Britney has…still) and put her into rehab during the summer in order for her to get better.

Thankfully, Amanda got help and was released in this month! She back in Los Angeles with her parents and is planning on attending Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in the new year! While Amanda isn’t out of legal problems yet, it’s good to see her back to somewhat normal.

Top 5 Events in 2013 that Pop’ed Our World: The Jelena Breakup

Jelena breakup

In honor of the New Year, we thought that we would count down the top 5 events that pop’ed our world. We are kicking the countdown with our number 5 event: The Jelena Breakup.

The Jelena Breakup was one of the most publicized breakups of the year, even when it potential happened in 2012. The breakup caused Selena to have one of the best years of her careers while Justin…well I’ll get to that later in this post.

The first breakup caused mass panic in the Jelenators and the Selenators fan bases while the Beliebers openly celebrated because they could have their Justin back (the Beliebers are very overprotected if you couldn’t tell). Then they got back together and then they broke up and then they got back together and then they finally broke up with Selena being the one that broke up with Justin.

After that is when their break up became a part 2013 pop culture. Selena went on to write and record “Stars Dance”, which become her first number 1 album, and went on her first world tour while releasing two movies at the same time. The album featured many song that seemed to be about her relationship with Bieber, which were really good (Sad Serenade still get us and should have been on the album).

Justin’s path after the breakup was a little different from Selena Gomez.  Justin became more of a pop bad boy and started to “act out” by vandalizing buildings in brazil, peeing in buckets, and leaving poor monkeys in Germany (yes, he’s monkey is still in there). Justin’s behavior in 2013 could have easily been one of our top 3 events but we decided that would be just cray.

Justin Bieber gives the gift that no one will forget


While others are celebrating Christmas and New Year’s Eve with friends and families, one fan base is in mourning this holiday season. Justin Bieber’s faithful, and sometimes stupid, beliebers are crying on their Christmas cookies as Bieber announced on Christmas Eve that he will be retiring at the tender age of 19.  He tweeted out this to his over 40,000,000 followers:

This wonderful Christmas gift sent them into a panic. This also probably wasn’t the brightest move on his part especially when his fan base started this nifty (that was sarcasm btw) trend on twitter called “Cuts for Bieber”, where they pictures of themselves slitting their wrist to get Bieber to stop his childish ways. He should know that his fan base is a bit intense with their love for him, but then again, he probably doesn’t even know that due to he never spoke about the “Cuts for Bieber” trend (even when it made headline news outlets worldwide).

The beliebers have already turned on themselves on Twitter though. They are starting mini twitter wars and it’s pretty much like The Hunger Games.

While this was speculated/said in an interview early this month, it was declined by Bieber’s team. I totally believe that this is a publicity stunt for his movie that is coming out today. No one would have seen this movie because it seems like a “Never Say Never” Part 2 but with drugs, peeing in buckets, and brothels (sounds like a fun night with R.Kelly).  Now that he is retiring and his tour is over, this movie is the beliebers last chance to see him live. Any “loving” fan base would go see that movie! This also reminds me of when Amanda Bynes said she retired from acting and then she was like “just kidding” and she went cray cray (fingers cross that Biebs goes crazy).

Bieber’s new movie “Believe” is out in Theaters today.

Ariana Grande is still Right There

It looks like our favorite little television redhead has topped her last music video. Last Week, Ariana Grande released her newest music video for her single, “Right There”.  And let me tell you: Ariana didn’t need to tell us where she was there because she hasn’t left:

When I first heard the song off of her album, I honestly wasn’t a big fan of it. I just assumed it was going to be “that one song” that I would tolerate because the album itself was amazing. But this video has changed the song for me. When I saw this video, my inner british pop nerd came out because it reminded me of Step’s video for “The Way You Make Me Feel”.

Starring Grande along with the former Governor of California’s son Patrick Schwarzenegger, the video is at a masquerade party with Grande being Juliet, Schwarzenegger playing Romeo, and Big Sean playing the priest that has absolutely nothing to do with anything in this video. I’m a firm believer that he was too busy to take part in the real filming so they just threw him in a church and filmed filler scenes since he raps on this track heavily. Anyways, they are at a masquerade party and they meet but then they lose each other before finding each other at the pool of all places before jumping into it and almost make out. The video is probably the cutest video I’ve seen all year based off of the style of it.

What didn’t work?: Well, Big Sean’s scenes. It just made no sense to me. It might make more sense if I read the “Romeo and Juliet” play but alas it didn’t make any sense. They also probably should have casted Nathan Sykes, Ariana’s Wanted Boyfriend, as the love interest because then it would have been, as Bailey puts its, “Totes Adorbz”.
