2016 has been an utter shit show of a year. Bold statement, I know. I’m still reeling from the death of Carrie Fisher and I can barely wrap my head around how in less than a month Donald Trump will legit be president. But aside from all the really horrible stuff that happened, celebrities were just particularly dumb this year.
I don’t know if there is something in the global water that has made all of humanity especially stupid this year, but celebs were not immune and man oh man did they do and say some stupid shit in 2016. Let’s have a look back at the dumb year that was…
Kylie Jenner takes to her app to deny her blatantly obvious surgeries.
Back in November, Kylie 2.0 decided to go on her app with her bff Stass to talk about all those wild rumors that she’s had a bunch of facial surgery and butt surgery. Even though her surgeries are blatantly obvious and I clearly write about them all the time, she for some reason decided to come out and publicly deny them, making herself look like a fake asshole, when, in reality, if she’d just never commented (it’s really no one’s business if she wants to change literally everything about her natural appearance…and I don’t even mean that sarcastically) no one would have been able to trash talk her for lying about it. All her little speel really did was confirm that there is no way that’s the original Kylie Jenner. She doesn’t even sound or talk like her! It’s crazy! (Also, who makes a video talking about how they don’t want breast implants, then gets implants like a month later? Smdh).
Hollywood Hobo Tyga keeps buying shit he can’t afford.
I feel like all Tyga did this year was buy cars and jewelry that he couldn’t afford, then he’d either get sued for not paying for them or his cars would get repossessed. Oh, and he’d also get sued for renting houses and buildings he couldn’t afford either. I mean, I guess he’s supposed to be a rapper, but the only thing he was known for in 2016 was being the ultimate Hollywood Hobo who clings to Kylie Jenner’s fake ass for money and fame. Boy, you tragic.
Azealia Banks accusations towards Russell Crowe.
Remember when Azealia Banks claimed Russell Crowe called her the n-word and physically threw her out of his party and spat on her? She even filed a police report. But then everyone, even her friend RZA who brought her was like ‘Uh, nah. She was the one spewing racial slurs and threatening to attack people with broken glasses and shit like a goddamn lunatic.’ Good one, Azealia Banks. Good one.
Justin Bieber’s on stage tirade at his fans.
During one of his concerts, Justin Bieber got pissy at his fans for screaming and being annoying so he yelled at them to stop screaming and when they wouldn’t he stormed off stage. Dude, you’re headlining a stadium concert and you’re JUSTIN BIEBER! Did you think all those little girls and grown gay men weren’t going to lose their minds while you’re on stage? (Also, remember when he bunched a fan? Wyd, Biebs?!)
Taylor Swift denying knowledge of the Kanye West song Famous.
Remember early in 2016 when Kanye West released the song Famous and in it he rapped about having sex with Taylor Swift and making her famous? And people freaked out but he was like ‘No, no, it’s cool, she knew about the song. It’s supposed to be tongue in cheek.’ And then she won a Grammy and called him out, saying how people try to take credit for your fame, thus painting herself as the victim once again with Kanye. THEN Kim Kardashian released the video of Kanye running the lyrics past Taylor and her approving, even joking ‘well it did kind of make me more famous’, and then Taylor Swift was revealed as the Regina George snake Katy Perry had known she was all along? Yeah, that was cool.
Khloe Kardashian giving work out tips for a bigger butt.
Not only did Khloe Kardashian release a book about self-care and fitness, she recently did a video blog on her app about how to get a bigger butt, but in her video it’s all exercises. The only way she wouldn’t have looked like a lying idiot was if her video was called ‘How to get a butt like mine’ then showed her going to the doctor and getting a Brazilian butt lift. I’m sorry, girl, but as someone who works out every damn day, I know for a fact that you don’t get butts the size of yours and Kim’s while maintaining small quads. THAT’S NOT HOW BODIES WORK! I don’t know why you and Kylie chose to use your apps to make yourselves look like assholes who expect us to believe you naturally look that way. Frankly, I’d respect these hoes more if they’d just come out and say ‘Yeah, I’m a woman in the public spotlight who has some insecurities and I’ve got some things tweaked to make me feel better about myself. What’s it to you?’ Because that I can get down with rather than promoting unrealistic body standards. Smh.
Lena Dunham’s uncanny ability to say the most self-centered, dumb-ass bullshit possible.
Between her accusing Odell Beckham Junior of not liking her because she wasn’t hot enough for him to saying she wishes she’d had an abortion, Lena Dunham in 2016 has made me so fucking happy that her goddamn show ends in 2017 and we can be done with her.
Kanye West’s fashion line.
Kanye West did and said a lot of dumb shit in 2016, but of all of the things he did, none was stupider than the above boots, which I’m sure he thinks are high fashion.
When Donald Trump mistook a convenience store for a national tragedy.
Like his pal, Kanye, Donald Trump literally said and did a million and one dumb fucking things in 2016 but if I had to pick just one quote to sum up his stupidity, I would choose this one from when he was talking about being in New York for 9/11: “I was down there, and I watched our police and our firemen, down on 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center, right after it came down.” Then again, maybe he wasn’t talking about 9/11. Maybe there was actually a really tragic fire at the 7-Eleven by Trump Tower…
