Like Kim Kardashian. Where did she come from? I mean she (and her family) are everywhere? But why? What makes her so special?
And that Bieber kid? Who is he? Why do we have to see so much of him about the place?
But what happened to the delightful Justin Timberland? Off the red carpet and out of the collective consciousness.
So in 2010, instead of trying to catch up on the past 6 years of goss (note the coincidence of timing? I have been gradually losing my grip on celebrity-dom since the kids made their arrival in my life. Funny that?), I fixated on a couple of people.
My first female favourite in 2010 is Nicole Ritchie (I know. I am surprised too!). From super scrag to super Mum, Nicole has really transformed her image. If she could just ditch the slightly loser-ish (now) husband, I reckon she would be on fire. She is cute. A little bit naughty. But seems to be 'keeping it real' in her designer-way. I dig her.
My other female favourite for the year is Christina Hendricks. What's not to like about that sassy red-head? She's sexy, shapely and terribly stylish. She's bringing back the curve in a major way and seems to have an effortless glamour about her. I like her voice, love her TV show and reckon she is rocking the celebrity world hard.
In the male world, I am love, love, loving Neil Patrick Harris. I always loved him as Doogie Howser and his character, Barney in How I met your mother, is one of the best on TV. The fact that he and his partner are having twins together this year has just brought us closer. A sweet gay Dad. Top NPH!
And my other male celebrity favourite this year is Leonardo Dicaprio. I feel like Leo and I have grown up together. Well he was in Growing Pains like, one of my favourite shows when I was growing up. Does that count? He lost me a bit with his "I'm the king of the world" stage, but this year I have seen maturity in his performances (Shutter Island, Inception) and because he doesn't look 12 any more I am totally loving him. His penchant for dating models is a bit meh, but otherwise I think Leo is sporting the goods these days.
And what about you? Who can't you get enough of in 2010?
