  • From the star who brought us “Old Town Road” comes “Call Me By Your Name.” Many labeled Lil Nas X as a one hit wonder, but he proved them all wrong with his edgy release. The music video was controversial as it contained, quite literally, Satan. Lil Nas would also follow the music video up with “Satan shoes” that allegedly contained a drop of real human blood, yikes!

  • Have you ever seen more problematic brotherhood, well, besides the Paul brothers? Andrew and Chris Cuomo had their hands full this year when Andrew was accused of sexual assault and stepped down from his position as the governor of New York. More recently, Chris was asked to step down from his position at CNN after his involvement with his brother.

  • The King of Vlogging, David Dobrik, had a tragic year. His first scandal of the year was his involvement with Durte Dom and sexual assault allegations.. His vlogs have always included huge shock factors as he tries to get as much high energy in his short but sweet 4 minute and 20 second videos, leading to him swinging his friend Jett Witteck directly into a claw machine (like, the construction ones.) Oh, and his racially insensitive jokes from past vlogs were also being unraveled, seriously couldn’t of gotten worse for David.

  • Kim and Kanye were one of the biggest A-list couples Hollywood has seen, but not all good things last forever. Kim specifically has been pushing for the divorce to go through this year, while Kanye begs for a second chance. It doesn’t seem like Kim and Kanye will be back together anytime soon, especially with the suspicions of Kim having a budding romance with Pete Davidson.

  • Another couple calling it quits is Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid. At the center of the breakup is Yolanda Hadid, Gigi’s mother, claiming that Zayn hit her. Even though Zayn adamantly denies ever doing so, the couple doesn’t have a bright future.

  • In 2021 Megahn Markle and Prince Harry sat down for an interview with Oprah, revealing a terrible side to the royal family. Meghan opened up about racism her and her baby were subjected to and even explained that she was treated so badly she began to lose her will to live. Behind the glitz and glamour of a royal title, things aren’t always what they seem.

  • The biggest breakout star of the year by far was Olivia Rodrigo. Her first release apart from her Disney songs was an instant hit, “Drivers License.” What helped draw so much attention to the tune was the supposed love triangle between Olivia, Joshua Bassett, and Sabrina Carpenter. Though we’ll never know what went down exactly, it’s safe to say Olivia remains successful.

  • Just like in Disney movies, true love always wins. Japan’s former princess Mako chose love over her royal status to marry one of her former classmates, Kei Komuro. The happy couple is now residing in New York City following their intimate wedding!

  • Honestly, what is Mark Zuckerberg even doing at this point? Facebook has been facing tons of backlash for a long time relating to privacy, safety, censorship, and the list goes on. More recently the company announced a name change to “Meta” and many believe it’s an attempt to draw attention away from their ongoing list of problems.

  • What could be more confusing than political scandals? Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, did not feel a warm welcome into the White House as his background was dug into as much as his father’s. Relationships with China? Russia? Suspicious selling of paintings? It’s up to God to find out the truth at this point.
