‘Showbiz Tonight’ and Celebuzz Countdown The Top 5 Buzzmakers of the Year (VIDEO)

As 2012 comes to an end, Showbiz Tonight’s AJ Hammer looks back at the top 5 buzzmakers of the year, exclusively for Celebuzz.

#5– Taylor Swift – The country/pop singer returned to musical chart dominance with her hit “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” And, her chief songwriting inspiration – relationships – kept her in the tabloids all year, especially her summer flings with Connor Kennedy and One Direction’s Harry Styles.

#4 – Madonna vs Lady Gaga – The feud between the two divas reached a fever pitch this year as Gaga was continually accused of being a Madonna copycat. Madonna called Gaga’s music ‘reductive’ while Gaga not-so-subtly criticized Madonna on stage.

#3 – Nicki Minaj – She made headlines for becoming a judge on American Idol, but it was her feud with fellow Idol judge, Mariah Carey, that had everyone buzzing this year. Nicki claimed Mariah didn’t want another female judge on the show and Mariah alleged that Nicki threatened to shoot her. It’s going to be an interesting season, the show premieres on FOX on Jan. 16.

#2 – Lindsay Lohan – 2012 marked the return of Lindsay Lohan as an actress, at least on the small screen. She landed the role, and later bombed it, as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s Liz & Dick, but her biggest feat of the year was being charged with four crimes on two coasts on the same day.

#1 – Rihanna & Chris Brown – The couple reunited three years after Chris put Rihanna in the hospital after a nasty argument. Despite being criticized by everyone around the world, the two flaunted their rekindled romance in 2012.

#2 – Nicki Minaj Strikes Back at Mariah Carey Nicki Minaj is going after her nemesis and fellow American Idol judge, Mariah Carey, the best way she knows how… in a song.

Now, reports are saying that Stewart may return for a Snow White sequel, which is a complete turnaround from a few months ago when the actress was allegedly dropped from the franchise amidst the cheating scandal with married director, Rupert Sanders.
