By  | 

If you were expecting The Week in Review, as per youge at this time, we've done something even better for ya this time around. Since 2013 is coming to a close in just a few days, we've opted to pick out the year's biggest moments — the good, the bad and the WTF?? — and package 'em into one convenient round-up. Follow along for 13 of the top instances we can't seem to forget, and make sure to tell us the ones you're still "OMG"-ing over in the comments!

There's no better way to kick things off than to acknowledge all things Jennifer Lawrence. From winning (and falling) at this year's Academy Awards to killing it in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the 23-year-old was non-stop amaze.

Fan favorites like Nina Dobrev & Ian Somerhalder and Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattinson actually called it quits. Does love really not exist, like??

Perez Hilton

Justin Bieber upped the antics hardcore. Rather than allegedly fathering a child, like in past years, he was spotted smoking marijuana, rumored to have slept with a Brazilian prostitute, took a video peeing in a mop bucket and cursing at a former president's picture… Is it even possible for 2014 to get crazier than that in the world of the Biebs?

Twirl It

Where has this chick been hiding? Former good girl Emma Roberts has made headlines in more ways than one for her bad girl ways, including her casting as a bitch on American Horror Story: Coven, cutting in line for cronuts and, most shockingly, arrest for domestic violence against boyfriend Evan Peters.


Months after Zac Efron went to rehab, news broke that he battled a cocaine addiction. Everyone thought he was flawless, but he proved that he was like anyone else, and experienced a downfall in his otherwise unblemished reputation.


*NSYNC reunited! …for .2 seconds, but still.

The AMAs

Kim Kardashian did things, like name her baby North, announce her engagement to Kanye West… and wax her baby's freaking eyebrows. She denies it, but who knows?


For Halloween, Julianne Hough actually thought it was okay to don blackface. Really?

Our beloved Amanda Bynes went off the deep end for a while there, but finally got the help she needed. However, we'll never forget those tweets of hers.


Paul Walker passed away tragically (and ironically) in a car crash. The Fast & the Furious franchise will never be the same.


All hail the QUEEN. From causing the lights to blow out at the Super Bowl at the beginning of the year to dropping a secret album in December — on Friday the 13th, no less — Beyonce stole the show, owned the Internet and ran the world.

We Heart It

What didn't Miley Cyrus do this year (besides wear clothes)? Let's see, she twerked on Robin Thicke, rode a wrecking ball while naked, split with fiance Liam Hemsworth… Hey, she said it herself — she can't stop.

The Hollywood Gossip

Collective cries could be heard around the world after Cory Monteith died of an accidental overdose this past summer. Glee then brought those tears back for the tribute episode, "The Quarterback." RIP Finn Hudson.
