The past 12 months have been chock full of celebrity news, intrigue, and downright absurdity. And while some celebrities have managed to become even more beloved, there are some that have become a) increasingly more annoying in 2013 or b) have transitioned from our hot list to our not list. So before we say goodbye to 2013, MadameNoire presents its most most played out, most just-get-out-of-our-face, most overexposed celebrities of the year.
Singer and shock celebrity Miley Cyrus is one of the top ten contenders for Time Person of the Year. Yes, you read right. Along with Bashar Assad, President of Syria; Jeff Bezos, Amazon Founder; Pope Francis, leader of the Catholic Church; and Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services, Cyrus is in the running.
Last year’s winner, President Barack Obama (who was also the 2008 pick) is once again on the list as is Edward Snowden, the infamous N.S.A. Leaker; gay rights activist Edith Windsor; Texas Senator Ted Cruz; and Hassan Rouhani, President of Iran.
Time Managing Editor Nancy Gibbs revealed the short list on the Today Show this morning. Obama is the only person who appeared on last year’s short list to also make this year’s. “His predecessor in the White House, Franklin D. Roosevelt, is the only person to receive the title three times,” reports Time.
In 1927, Time selected its first “Man of the Year” in 1927. Now called “Person Of The Year,” the honor goes to the person who Time’s editors think most influenced the news this year–for good or bad.
In a reader’s poll last week, Egypt’s General Abdul Fattah al-Sisi, was selected as their Person of the Year. The Today Show is also hosting its own poll for the final candidates.
Time’s Person of the Year 2013 will be announced on the Today Show Wednesday morning.
Sometimes an artist takes the stage and blows everyone away with a great performance. And sometimes, the performance is overshadowed by an embarrassing outfit blunder. Hey, it happens to the best of them. Check out the worst celebrity performance outfits ever.
After living in the shadows of her big sister Toni Braxton, and then her other sisters, Tamar has finally stepped into the spotlight all on her own. The “Love and War” singer took to the stage at the 2013 Soul Train Awards in a risqué outfit and immediately there was a backlash on social networks. Many believed the sheer outfit, complete with black sequins to cover up her goodies, was a distraction from her singing ability. Not one to let the criticism keep her down, Braxton responded to the flack via twitter: “I’m NOT on the red carpet & if u like my performance & outfit thank u if not pray 4 me.”
Everyone knows Hollywood has a narrow definition of what makes someone a star, that’s why most entertainers end up selling some part of their soul — or at least stepping up their physical appearance — to make it big in Tinseltown. Here’s a look at some of the biggest celebs who changed to get put on.
Kerry Washington has played in tons of movies before her hit role in “Scandal.” However, if it wasn’t for her stepping up her fashion game she may not be as big as she is right now. She recently told Glamour magazine:
“There were a couple of actresses whom I felt were having the upper hand career wise-because they knew how to work that red carpet. I was like, ‘I’m missing a really important tool. So I sort of developed a new character: Red-Carpet Kerry. And I researched her like any other character.”
Now those are two names you probably never thought you’d hear in the same sentence: Babyface and Miley Cyrus. But since Miley is the flavor of the month, everyone is expected to speak on her shenanigans as of late. And everyone includes Babyface.
When the music legend visited Bethenny’s show, she asked what he made of Miley smoking weed in Amsterdam on stage at the EMAs. And unlike many other older singers and entertainers, (looking at you Uncle Charlie), Babyface seemed relatively unfazed by her antics.
Bethenny: What about the Miley smoking pot in Amsterdam? Wow, what do you think of that?
Babyface: How old is she?
Bethenny: 20, no?
Babyface: Yeah, so she can do it right.
Bethenny: She can do it I guess. Are we done, we’re just not expecting her to be any kind of a role model?
Babyface: I don’t think you sign on to be a role model. I think when you first start doing, if you’re an entertainer, whoever you are you have to be who you are and I think that when you play this role of I’m a role model or whatever and that’s not necessarily who you are then I think you are lying to people anyway.
Bethenny: But are you playing it or are you just feeling a responsibility? It’s not that I signed on to be anything but in having this gift of this platform to have conversations and hopefully inspire women, I am not going to go do something stupid and start doing drugs because people depend upon me to give them hope and help them with what they’re doing and I feel like to just do that is a big f you.
Babyface: I think that’s wonderful for you.
Bethenny: To me, I’ve been fine the whole time, if you want to put your tongue out or have sex with a ball I guess, I’ve been fine. This kind of crossed the line because so many people are just trying to keep their kids away from drugs, trying to keep their kids from having sex at twelve. So many different things, someone should be like let’s just reel it in a little bit.
Babyface: I think she’s young and she’s going to go through what she goes through. I don’t know what you were like at 20?
Bethenny: I was wild.
Babyface: She’s young and she’s going to go through it. What I know of because I’ve hung out with Miley, I’ve known her when she was younger, I know her as a really good girl, a good person.
I share Babyface’s sentiments in a sense. Miley is grown. I’m not shocked or appalled by anything she’s done thus far. I’m just genuinely tired of hearing about her and what seem like very cheap, and in some cases exploitative, attention-seeking stunts. Over it.
Check out the video of his less than bothered reaction below.
And then Bethenny, by way of a Toni Braxton tweet, asked Babyface if she, Toni, was harder to work with 20 years ago or right now. See what he had to say on the next page.
We all have a stretch of time in our past where we were on some other stuff or trying to find ourselves. We talked different, dressed odd, and everyone told us it was just a phase, and thankfully they were right. The same can be said of these celebs. While individuality and creativity should be applauded, many people were scratching their heads and raising their eyebrows when these stars went through their weird phases.
Christina Aguilera always knew she would be a star. Getting her start early on the “Mickey Mouse Club,” Aguilera’s career began along the same time as fellow pop diva Britney Spears. Trying to differentiate herself from her rival, Aguilera decided to be edgy and played up her sexuality and bad girl image to help sell records. Catching a lot of negative criticism for her overly sexual image, Aguilera eventually toned things down after a brief hiatus to start a family and retool her image. Most recently, Aguilera has rejoined her red seat on NBC’s hit singing reality competition show “The Voice.”

Celebrity hair trends come and go. Sometimes styles that seemed like a good idea in the moment quickly become a cringe-worthy reminder of a very particular time and place. But other times, celebrities who take a hair plunge emerge as newly-minted style icons. And the latest track to beauty icon status? The pixie cut. It definitely takes quite a pair of cojones to chop off long, luscious locks, but these celebrities were certainly rewarded with quite a pay off for their risk. Here are our favorite pixie-haired celebs.
I’ve seen some pretty awesome celebrity costumes this week, including female rapper Iggy Azalea as Cruella de Vil, Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, and Miley Cyrus as Lil Kim. But I’ve also seen a few costumes that blew my mind for being so racy and not making that much sense at the same time. Like Nicki Minaj’s costume for example.
The MC decided to attend Hot 97′s Halloween shinding last night dressed as a s*xy cop. From first glance I thought it was just a complex dominatrix outfit (the panties, the pasties and the chest doo-dad made it seem that way), but the handcuffs on her fishnet stockings and the fact that she called herself Officer Minaj definitely set things straight. It was clearly a revealing look, but Nicki hasn’t been too shy as of late, taking selfies of herself topless on more than one occasion.
I think we can all agree that nobody took the Halloween holiday more serious than this gal. We know the stereotype that some women use Halloween to dress up as a sexed up version of any and everything, but the Nickster took it to a whole other level. What do you make of her costume?
Unlike most of us, celebrities can look a variety of a different ways throughout the year. Contouring, access to expensive clothes and quality hair extensions can insure that a celeb can look like a different person from day to day. So, it’s interesting to see how they’ll choose to dress up on Halloween. Check out the costumes some of our favorite celebrities.
All non-minorities across the world, take note. This is how you dress as a black person without using blackface. If the costume is well done, you certainly don’t need it. I repeat, you don’t need it. Now, as much as Miley has been getting on my nerves for the past six months, I have to give it to her. She nailed this costume. And if you don’t like it, Lil Kim herself co-signed the outfit.

Anyone who knows me personally knows that Orange is the New Black gives me a great amount of life, and I’m waiting very impatiently for season two. So when I heard about a parody of it done by the folks of Black & S*xy TV, I knew to expect something provocative and entertaining. Oh, and don’t forget very funny, which is what the spoof is.
The parody, Orange is the New Black & S*xy, stars actress Jessa Zarubica as Piper, and Issa Rae as the always colorful Taystee. In it, Piper comes to prison, and though she’s embraced by her fellow white female inmates, she becomes more enchanted with the black clique. By the end of the clip, she has a full Miley Cyrus makeover, has her inmate friends twerking, is trying to get her hands on some pig feet, and basically has a ball misappropriating black culture behind bars. The parody is a Dayna Lynne North/Loud Sista Production that was co-directed by Dennis Dortch and the uber-talented Numa Perrier. Check it our for yourself below and let us know what you think!
