2013 was a life changing career for many celebs, whether it was their career or love lives. However,  between multiple arrests, cheating and album tanks, there are also some who many want to forget the past 12 months. Since we are less than 24 hours away from a new year,  let's celebrates those celebs that marked this year as one to remember. Here are 20 celebs who had the best 2013 ever.


Justin Bieber--Worst Year

While he was trying to be a bad boy, Bieber lost some of his core fans. He already disrespected Anne Frank's importance, defaced Brazil property and lost lots of ticket sales from his actions in overseas concerts. However, he's still young and can bounce back.

Paula Deen--Worst Year

It wasn't Paula Deen's use of the n-word that ruined her year; it was her non-apologetic attitude towards the situation that did the trick. Two terribly orchestrated forgiveness videos later, her food empire was demolished. She lost many of her heavy deals over this ordeal making 2013 a year she will try to forget ever happened.

Lupita Nygon'o gif

Lupita Nygon'o--Best Year

If you would have said "Lupita" a year ago, no one would have known who she was, but today, she's the new "it" girl in Hollywood. Covering various magazines and dominating her movie debut in 12 Years a Slave; we would be happy to trade places with her.

Chris Brown gif

Chris Brown--Worst Year

Let's just say the past few years weren't the best for Breezy, but 2013 was the straw that broke the camel's back. Arrest after arrest, violating his parole and a supposed "hit and run" have all landed him in a rehab facility.


Orange is the New Black cast--Best Year

Thanks to us (smiles), OITNB landed their first cover while getting even more recognition as one of the top Netflix shows going into their second season.

Shonda Rhimes

Shonda Rhimes--Best Year

Shonda Rhimes could say the past few decades have been good to her, but 2013 was monumental. Scandal's season premiere made record breaking numbers, Kerry Washington was nominated for her first Emmy and on top of all that,  she welcomed a new son.

Miley Cyrus gif

Miley Cyrus--Best/Worst Year

We aren't sure if she's having the best or worst year ever. Her album was great, her image was questionable and her romance relationship with Liam Hemsworth was ruined.

Kerry Washington--Best Year

This was the year for Kerry. Between all her magazine covers and nominations with Scandal, she managed to secretly wed and get pregnant.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga--Worst Year

Her camp reportedly put $25 million in promotions for her album Artpop just for it to be the biggest flop. To add salt to the wound, Beyonce spent about $25 million less in promotions and her album went platinum...ouch, that burns!

Evelyn Lozada--Best Year

While 2012 proved to be a life lesson to this mean girl of reality TV, it seems 2013 has showered Evelyn Lozada with love. She's pregnant with her second child and engaged to be married.

VIBE-Vixen-Tamar Braxton

Tamar Braxton--Best Year

She created her own spotlight in music. She already dominated her sister's show The Braxton Family Values, but now she's a respected artist. She gave birth to her son and also worked on her own spin-off while dropping her debut album. Kudos to Tamar!

Dave Chapelle gif

Lamar Odum--Worst Year

If you ever wanted to know how to mess up your career, marriage and life in a matter of months, just ask Lamar. This year, he managed to lose his stake in the Kardashian empire, head to rehab and who knows where his career is headed. It could be it couldn't.


Ciara--Best Year

Dropped one of her best albums to date and got engaged! Plus the baby mill is in full churn, but we're waiting for an official announcement.

Rihanna Gif

Rihanna--Best Year

Rihanna went into 2013 having the best year ever and she managed to top it. She made history with the most number 1 records ever on Billboard. She also snagged AMA's first ever Icon Award.

Justine Sacco racist tweet

Justine Sacco--Worst Year

If you ever questioned the power of Twitter, just ask former PR Exec for IAC, Justine Sacco, whose insensitive tweet landed her jobless before she could rectify the situation. After tweeting "Going to Africa. Hope I don't get AIDS. Just kidding. I'm White,!" the director boarded a flight from London to South Africa. Just like Beyonce, her one move turned her into a mini celeb and her name was the trendiest alongside #HasJustineLandedYet. Unfortunately, her move was the worst move of the year.

Kevin Hart Gif

Kevin Hart--Best Year

Kevin Hart has been having the best few years, but 2013 was the greatest.  His TV show Real Husbands of Hollywood, movie Let Me Explain and Grudge Match and various magazine covers have all been successes.  But you can bet he'll be on this list again next year with 3 movies set to come out next summer.

Beyonce Gif

Beyonce--Best Year

There's no question why Beyonce had the best year ever,  but lets run it down:

-GQ voted her "Sexiest Woman"
-Sang in her second presidential inauguration
-Singlehandedly shut down the Super Bowl
-Became the face of H&M
-Went on a tour and extended it because records were selling too fast
-Dropped a platinum album in a weekend and ruined all other artist's year.

Any more questions?

Beyoncé, Rihanna, And J. Lo Make Forbes’ Highest-Paid Women In Music List

As November comes to a close, many publications will be crafting their year-end lists for all things pop culture. Forbes released a ranking of the world's highest-paid women in music on Monday (Nov. 19), with Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, and Rihanna holding it down for women of color.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
