Justin Bieber may’ve not been involved in any baby mama drama this year, but you can still be sure that 2012 had its share of jaw-dropping periods. Remember Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth‘s big announcement? Jelena’s “break-up?” And the death of Whitney Houston (R.I.P.)? It’s these moments and more that made the past 366 days (leap year) memorable. Follow along as we count up to the biggest celebrity OMG moment of 2012!
12. Boy Meets World gets a spin-off.
There’s no way you didn’t gasp when you heard
that your fave childhood show was making a comeback.
11. Zac Efron drops condom on the red carpet…
…then proceeds to put on his sunglasses and laugh to himself.
That Disney image of his is long gone now.
10. Blue Ivy Carter breaks Billboard record.
At the tender age of two days old, dad Jay-Z released “Glory (feat. B.I.C.),” which debuted at No. 74 on Billboard‘s R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart, making Blue the youngest person ever to appear on a Billboard chart. And something tells us she’ll keep that title forever.
9. Princess Kate’s pregnancy.
After holding a bouquet of flowers outside of a hospital,
word of a royal baby spread like wildfire across the nation(s).
8. Rob Kardashian calls out Rita Ora.
We won’t get into the details. You can just Google it. Let’s just say whatever he put on blast prompted older sis Khloe Kardashian to say:
7. Ariel Winter’s parental court battle.
Reports conclude that the young Modern Family star was emotionally abused
by her mother in their home.
6. Whitney Houston dies.
But we ‘will always love’ her.
5. Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy break-up; rebounds with Harry Styles.
Girl’s already getting new material for the follow-up to Red.
4. Jelena’s “break-up.”
Amid “trust issues” (and pictures with a Victoria’s Secret model), Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez reportedly called it quits! Then reunited… then split again. So stay tuned in 2013!
3. Miley Cyrus chops off her hair.
It was the buzz (cut) heard around the world. Some thought it might’ve been for cancer, though, that is pretty much out of the realm of possibility.
2. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth’s engagement.
Or potential secret wedding!!!
1. Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders’ scandal.
Not to fully reopen old wounds, but you know you teared when you read the statements. Fortunately, Robsten lived through the drama.
