What was the worst reality TV show of 2011. Well a recent poll has voted “Toddlers & Tiaras” as being the worst show.
Sodahead.com released a poll asking consumers what was the “Worst Reality of Show 2011″ and the public has chosen Toddlers & Tiaras with 32% of the vote. Coming in second was Kourtney and Kim Take New York (26%), followed by Jersey Shore (23%), Teen Mom (12%) and the Real Housewives series (7%).
We think “Toddlers & Tiaras” deserves to take this impressive award. Any show that features parents exploiting their daughters as little whores has rightly earned the title.
Rebecca Black was interviewed this week, where she talked about her crazy 2011. She discussed that although some people loved her song “Friday,” other people hated it, and that hatred was passed along to her personally.
“I honestly don’t know. I mean I can understand not liking the video as everyone has their own opinions,” said Rebecca Black on the Today show. “Some people have gone to some crazy extremes which I don’t understand.”
Hated or not, nobody can deny Rebecca was popular in 2011. ”Rebecca Black” placed No. 1 on the Google Zeitgeist, the list of the fastest rising searches of the year, and “Friday” being named the most-watched YouTube video of 2011.
“They’re definitely great lists to be on,” Rebecca says. “I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet that this little kid from Orange County is on the top of Google Zeitgeist and YouTube.”
Do you think Rebecca will still be around in 2012?
Gawker compiled a list of the top viral videos of 2011, and even created a cool mashup video featuring all these videos into one 2 minute video.
2011 was certainly an amazing year for viral videos. Below is a list of those videos in order of popularity:
1. Most memorable story of 2011: The passing of Jack Layton
The charismatic leader of the NDP passed away from cancer on August 22, leaving a deep void in Canadian politics.
2. Best pop album: Cher Lloyd “Sticks + Stones”
This album from X Factor contestant Cher Lloyd has a bit of everything: rap, pop, 80s samples and even dubstep.
3. Best movie: Bridesmaids
I can’t remember the last time I laughed like a hyena in a movie theatre. Kristin Wiig and the rest of her female cast members made this movie the success it is today.
4. Best t.v. show: Parks and Recreation
This show has some of the most eccentric characters on television: The bacon obsessed Ron Swanson, the overly optimistic Leslie Knope and the sarcastic and dark April Ludgate.
5. Best dressed: Florence Welch
The lead singer of Florence + the Machine always manages to look like she came straight out of a Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino painting.
6. Best blog (other than our own, of course!): Cute Overload
7. Which male and female celeb owned 2011: Justin Bieber and Zooey Deschanel
Justin not only escaped the hyped baby mama drama, he dropped a hit Christmas album and countless of music videos, won a ton of awards for his musical efforts, and got a haircut! He was literally everywhere this year. Zooey Deschanel finishes much of 2011 as a single lady but she can celebrate her new sitcom “New Girl” being a huge enough success to warrant her a Golden Globe nomination. Take that, Ben Gibbard!
8. Shocking celebrity moment: Amy Winehouse found dead
When the 27 year old was found dead from a drug overdose in July, it made a lot of people rethink their choices for doing drugs and drinking alcohol. If her death has taught us anything, it’s that we’re not alone in overcoming our demons.
9. Biggest surprise of 2011: Lindsay Lohan didn’t go to jail
We all thought a little time in the slammer would do Lindsay some good. Although she did complete her community service hours at a morgue, she escaped being placed behind bars for all her wrong-doings. Then she posed for Playboy!
10. Who to watch in 2012: Lana Del Rey
The gangster version of Nancy Sinatra made a big splash in late 2011 with her songs “Video Games” and “Born to Die”. With her debut album finally out in 2012, we’ll be seeing a lot more of the buxom blonde.
Kim Karashian has won the very prestigious award as the “Most Ill Mannered Person of 2011.” She received this award from the National League of Junior Cotillions “for making a private matter public and disrespecting the institution of marriage.”
Kim’s 72 day marriage has really caused her a lot of problems. Granted it increased her fame into an even more ridiculous level, but she has also created a lot of hatred for herself by the general public.
Kate Middleton was awarded the title of Best-Mannered Person of 2011 “for the poise and dignity with which she conducts herself in the public spotlight.”
That’s no surprise – that’s why she’s a princess.

FAVORITE SOUL/R&B ALBUM

As andPOP reported last week, Chris Brown threw his $22,000 Rolex off the stage while performing at the VMAs last Sunday. A fan returned the watch, and Chris was looking for the fan to thank them.
Well, the fan named Alisha saw the story on TMZ, and she was able to get in contact with Chris’ people. Chris is so appreciative that he has given Alisha backstage passes to his upcoming concert, and will also meet Alisha.
See – doing good things pays off. Granted if she kept the watch that would have paid more, but nevertheless, returning the watch was the right thing to do.
The watch is a diamond encrusted Rolex, and you would think that’s something that shouldn’t be thrown around. A bodyguard went looking for the watch, and surprisingly someone turned it in.
Chris is extremely grateful and wants to reward his fan with tickets and backstage passes to his upcoming tour. And hopefully Chris will be a little bit smarter about dancing with a $22,000 watch, and then just throwing it around.

It’s no secret Justin has a track record of crashing concerts on his friends and girlfriends (or even random people’s weddings). But with all the controversy surround Chris Brown recently, will Justin want to perform on stage with Chris?
The guys have worked together before, recording the tracks “Next 2 You” and “Ladies Love Me.” But is it a good move for Justin to be seen on stage with Chris?
What do you think?
Hosted by “Big Bang Theory”‘s Kaley Cuoco, the 2011 Teen Choice Awards were anything but dull; from blue and orange surfboards, to Ashton Kutcher belting out “Teenage Dream,” to Justin Bieber busting a move during Selena Gomez & the Scene’s performance of their single, “Love You Like a Love Song,” to Robert Pattinson’s moving Cancer Bites speech after winning Choice Vampire. My favourite part of the night? The Harry Potter tribute montage followed by a live chat with the one and only Daniel Radcliffe through the wonderful world of modern technology, to put it in the words of Rupert Grint. The film won itself and its actors a whopping seven Teen Choice Award surfboards, including the awards for Choice Summer Movie, Choice Summer Female Star, which went to Emma Watson, and Choice Movie Liplock, which went to Danielle Radcliffe and Emma Watson.
Here is the full list of winners:
Choice Summer Movie
