The Most Shocking Headlines Of 2014
You may forget that some of these 'oh my god' moments happened this year, and no, we didn't forget about the Ice Bucket Challenge...
As 2014 comes to a close, we thought it'd be the perfect time to look back at those headlines that made us go, 'No way?!' and 'Ahh that's nice'.
From Kim K's bum to Gwenyth Paltrow's conscious uncoupling, we've got it covered!
2014 kicked off with the news that Ke$ha had entered rehab to undergo treatment for an eating disorder. While the Tik Tok hitmaker was working through her problems, Kanye West found himself on the wrong side of the law after assaulting a man who made a racial slur at wife-to-be Kim Kardashian. And, someone else whose squeaky clean image well and truly hit the skids was Justin Bieber. The star was arrested and charged with DUI and drag racing in Miami Beach after he was caught speeding in a rented Lamborghini on January 23.
You'd think this month would be filled with love as it plays host to Valentine's Day and all, but for Robin Thicke it was quite the opposite as it was announced he and wife Paula Patton were going their separate ways. Though Miley Cyrus had more than enough love for everyone as her and Katy Perry enjoyed a smooch during her Bangerz show. While it ultimately became a month to remember the legendary actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman who sadly passed away, leading his showbiz pals to remember his most iconic roles and celebrate what he'd achieved.
Just when we thought Cheryl and Simon Cowell had gone their separate ways, the gorgeous Geordie confirmed her return to the X Factor judging panel on March 10 with an affectionate Instagram post of herself and SiCo… complete with her hands around his throat! While Chezza and Simon were very much back together, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin shocked the showbiz world by announcing their 'Conscious Uncoupling'. The world of entertainment was also rocked by the suicide of Mick Jagger's girlfriend L'Wren Scott.
Tom Daley kicked off April with pride as he came out as gay, putting him and boyfriend Dustin Black in the running for cutest couple ever! While it wasn't all sunshine and smiles for Naya Rivera and Big Sean who ended their engagement after a year together. She later accused him of stealing her watches, so it was far from an amicable split… And the sad news that Peaches Geldof had passed away hit the headlines, as the 25-year-old left behind her husband and two young children.
The month of May got off to an explosive start after CCTV footage emerged of Jay-Z being attacked by his sister-in-law Solange in a lift following a Met Ball after party as Beyonce watched on. While things appeared not to be well in camp Carter-Knowles, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian tied the knot in Florence on May 24! One Direction's Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson also found themselves at the centre of controversy after a video hit the web showing them apparently sharing a rolled-up 'joint'. Oops…
Make-ups and break-ups were the theme for June, as Courtney Cox revealed she was engaged to Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid, and Calvin Harris and Rita Ora announced they'd gone their separate ways. One Direction's Louis Tomlinson tried to make up for last months' bad publicity by buying Doncaster Rovers FC, though that didn't turn out so well either. Funny man Tracey Morgan was involved in a serious car crash which left him in intensive care, though he went on to make a full recovery. Phew!
Cheryl stunned her Soldiers by taking to Instagram to confirm she had secretly married boyfriend Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini after just three months of dating! While Chezza was busy sharing snaps of her HUGE sparkler, former X Factor judge Tulisa breathed a sigh of relief after being cleared of supplying Class A drugs after the trial against her collapsed. And, Justin Bieber was back in the headlines after locking horns with Orlando Bloom in Ibiza, with reports suggesting the actor threw a punch at Biebs after he taunted him about estranged wife Miranda Kerr.
August shall forever be known as the month that gave us the Ice Bucket Challenge, which saw celebs pour water over themselves all in aid of the ALS charity. We'd like to say a special thanks for providing us with several wet t shirt moments from the likes of Robert Pattinson, Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch. Speaking of showing off their body, Nicki Minaj played host to the MTV VMAs over the summer, which saw her get into a spot of bother with her dress zipper…! While Angelina Jolie had no wardrobe malfunctions (that we know of) when she got married to her long time love Brad Pitt in an intimate family-filled ceremony. Though Hollywood was dealt another tough hand this month as Robin Williams passed away at the age of 63.
September got off to a scandalous start after the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Kim Kardashian were targeted by a naked photo leak, with J-Law coming off the worse as 60 private images of the actress hit the web. However, it wasn't all bad for Jen, with the star apparently coupling up with Chris Martin! Ariana Grande and Big Sean also went public with their romance, while Amal Alamuddin finally made an honest man of George Clooney, with the pair marrying in Venice. While gorgeous George was officially off the market, Kris Jenner filed for divorce from hubby Bruce, as Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa also called time on their marriage amid cheating allegations. And finally, Robin Thicke made the shock confession that Pharrell Williams wrote most of their hit Blurred Lines… because he was high on drugs!
Baby news filled this month as Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds announced they were expecting a baby together, while the equally as good looking couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis gave birth to their little girl, Wyatt Isabelle. Let's not forget the moment Daniel Radcliffe showed off his rapping skills when he stopped by the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon (where did they come from?!) While the world dealt with yet another heart-breaking loss as comedienne Joan Rivers died aged 81, making the world that little bit less funny.
November will officially be remembered as the month that Kim Kardashian oiled up her most famous asset in a bid to 'Break The Internet' by going fully naked and baring her bottom for Paper magazine! One Direction's Zayn Malik was also forced to deny claims that his absence from an appearance on The Today Show was due to substance abuse, while bandmate Liam Payne also hit the headlines after appearing to lose the will to live while taking selfies with fans Down Under. And finally, probably the most unlikely celeb feud to ever happen er, happened when Ariana Grande clashed with Bette Midler after the actress accused Ari of using sex to sell records. Meow!
The festive season brings with it a whole load of drama and happiness in equal measure, so we thought we'd start with the news of Elton John and David Furnish getting married, and sharing the whole star-studded affair on Instagram! Though it wasn't such a happy month for Kris and Bruce Jenner, whose divorce was finalised after 22 years of marriage, aw. Let's not forget the moment that Jay Z and Beyonce met Kate Middleton and Prince William a basketball game, creating a picture we NEVER though we'd see! While December saw James Franco and Seth Rogen get caught in the middle of a political storm, as their new movie The Interview was threatened by hackers if not pulled from cinemas. Drama drama drama.
That's all for 2014, we cannot WAIT to see what 2015 brings! See you there!
