In MN’s Year In Review, we’re counting down our top stories as well as the biggest moments in television, music, movies, and news.

You know part of our job is to keep you guys laughing and these hilarious articles of 2012 did just that.

1. Usher, It’s Time to Move On, You’re No Trey Songz

Last week, I heard Usher’s new song, Lemme See – And this is why I don’t listen to the radio anymore.

The song, which features a verse from former correctional officer with benefits and a 401k plan turned make-believe gangster-rapper, Rick Ross, is about Usher going out one night and meeting a girl in the club. And after getting drunk off of Merlot and his female companion for the night taking her pants off, our hero in the song has decided to take his shirt off – to show his chest. And I guess from there they get it poppin’.  And we wonder why the yougins’ are freaky as all hell…Read more.

2. There’s No Place Like Home? Not When You Move Into An Apartment From Hell

Trying to find an apartment in New York City when you don’t live in the city is a nightmare — not that trying to find an apartment in New York City when you’re in New York City is much easier. But unless you have a lot of money and a broker who actually wants to earn his 15% commission, you’re going to end up sacrificing some of those things that would be considered normal amenities in any other city in America just to put a decent roof over your head….Read more.

3. 7 CELEBRITIES WE’D NEVER DATE

Ok, so the likelihood of us, regular, around the way girls, ever getting an opportunity to date a celebrity will probably never, ever present itself. Most of us, over the age of thirteen have realized this. While the glitz and glam of being on the arm of a famous beau would be fabulous (at times), there are some men who just would not cut it. No matter how much money these celeb men have, it can’t hide the fact that they’re either ignorant, lame, or down right repulsive. Check out the men we’re talking about and let us know if you agree….Read more.

4. Straight Comedy: Meet Keyoncé Bowles, Beyoncé’s Siamese Twin Sister

When people imitate Beyoncé they usually go for her over the top stage performances or her intensely choreographed music videos. Rarely, do we see someone try to take on Beyoncé the woman. I know you’re probably thinking Maya Rudolph just gave it a try shortly after the birth of Blue Ivy in that SNL skit. That she did. But let me tell you after watching this video made by vlogger, actress and singer, Jade Novah, Maya has nothing on this Beyoncé impersonation. (No shade, Maya. We still love you.)…Watch here.

5. THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD: 8 RATCHET THINGS YOU SEE WHEN THE TEMPERATURE RISES

It’s getting warmer outside, and with the change in weather comes a change in mood–folks want to be outside! But also with a change in weather comes a whole lot of ratchetness. From too little clothes to very aggressive men, when the weather takes a turn for the better, people act a hot a** mess. Keep your eye out for these things and people…Read more.

6. CHOP YOU IN YOUR TRACHEA AND 6 OTHER K. MICHELLE CATCH PHRASES

Up until two days ago, I tried my best to keep from watching Vh1′s “Love And Hip Hop Atlanta.” I knew it was going to be a ratchet mess and frankly I can’t take too much more of black women embarrassing themselves on television when we have so few positive images anyway. But, at the downright prodding of my sister, I finally decided to see what all the fuss was about while I was on vacation. After one episode, I was hooked. Whether I “like” them or they make my skin crawl, all of the characters are so entertaining. But one of the cast members and her quick-witted catch phrases, caught my attention. And that would be K. Michelle. Though, I don’t always agree with the way she handles her altercations, I have to admit the girl can turn a phrase. Surely, you’ve noticed. And if you haven’t, check out some of her catchier ones on the following pages…Read more.

7. BABY, BYE! CELEBS WHO TOOK THEIR BABY HAIR TOO FAR

In the ’90′s if you didn’t have baby hair, you weren’t doing much. Black folk across the country spent countless hours in the mirror, using a toothbrush and gel to shape the perfect swirl around their edges. Slick and sleek was the look and no one was trying to be caught with frizzy edges. Check out the artists who took the baby hair phenomenon to a whole new level…Read more.

8. The Sweetest Sound Known To Woman Is The Soft Thud Of Her Bra Hitting The Floor After a Long Day

Apparently I missed a very exciting celebration yesterday and you likely did too: no bra day. The thought alone conjures up all sorts of images—was this a grand feminist statement rivaling the 1960s, did some college co-eds come up with this an excuse to walk around like playboy models, and most importantly who was walking around with no bra on when they know they needed one—but the day actually had a more somber meaning. The idea was crafted last year by a 19-year-old girl from California who goes by the online name of Anastasia Doughnuts as a statement to raise breast cancer awareness and stand in solidarity with women who no longer have to wear bras because of breast disease. While the cause was noble, as women thought about the reality of what not needing to wear a bra would mean, most of those who still have to wear one couldn’t help but think about one thing: how much they hate these things…Read more.

    Now, this format is MUCH better than having to click on 15-20 pages to see everything! Hopefully this won’t be the last time the MN formats webpages like this. Thank you for listening!

    Marques Houston….gotta love that hair. I’m such a huge fan still of Immature/IMx I will never forget their hairstyles. It was what made them unique.

  • Ms. Kameria

    Marques Houston- that hair is laid like hot comb on your grandmama’s stove. Bump and curl with the baby hair…..too much
