The Celebrity of the Year: Kim Kardashian!

by at . Comments

We've reached the top of our Celebrity of the Year countdown. Or, as many might say, given the winner, the bottom.

The THG staff has spent the last couple weeks breaking down the most newsworthy stars of 2011, from Lindsay Lohan at #10, up to the impressive comeback of Jennifer Lopez at #9, to the popularity of Selena Gomez at #8 and the hilarity of viral video stars at #7.

There was the hit-generating Katy Perry at #6, Justin Bieber and his hair at #5, those gorgeous British Royal Family members at #4, Charlie Sheen and his winning ways at #3 and the most charitable, eccentric celeb of all at #2, Lady Gaga.

So who remains? The woman who accomplished both everything and nothing in 2011, our #1 selection of the year... Kim Kardashian!

Kim Kardashian Motivational Poster

For the record, this is a business decision. We do not like Kim Kardashian. We wish we never had to write a word about Kim Kardashian. We fail to see why a single human being is a fan of Kim Kardashian. But the facts speak for themselves, and no celebrity made more headlines in 2011. Consider:

In JANUARY: Kim kicked off the new year by debuting a single that made Kim Zolciak sound like Whitney Houston. She also met the family of Kris Humphries for the first time and premiered the highly-rated, critically-lambasted Kourtney & Kim Take New York.

In February: She starred in a Super Bowl commercial and whined over her latest nude photo spread. It also came out that she and her family made $65 million in 2010.

In MARCH: She appeared in a Midori ad campaign, as buzz first circulated that she might marry Humphries.

In APRIL: She lashed out at Turkish Cosmo and posed on many red carpets in a cleavage-baring dress.

In MAY: She came out with a new fragrance, got angry over the misuse of her bare boobs and, oh, got engaged to Humphries.

In JUNE: She appeared on the covers of multiple tabloids and defended herself against rumors of infidelity.

In JULY: She took photos of herself in Humphries' hometown and got into trouble for complaining about the Casey Anthony verdict.

In AUGUST: She married Humphries. Perhaps you heard about it.

In SEPTEMBER: She honeymooned with Kris while her publicists plotted how to best announce the upcoming divorce. Someone also tried to purchase the rights to her sex tape.

In OCTOBER: She turned 31 and rumors started to swirl that her marriage was already in trouble. She ended the month by filing for divoce.

In NOVEMBER: She whined and cried and played ignorant as to why anyone would dare questions her motives to marry. She visited Australia and Minnesota and premiered season two of Kourtney & Kim Take New York. Over three million people tuned in.

In DECEMBER: She was considered one of the Most Fascinating People of 2011 by Barbara Walters and will conclude her most prosperous year to date the only way she knows how: by standing around a club in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve and earning $600,000.

@Team me LMFAO!!! @Lisa...you cracked me up too. Thank you both. Now @Carah You curse and take the lords name, wow such a sweetheart. Maybe they can script a part for you on their show. Open a magazine, she rips off other designers. I'm sure even you have the ability to look at two pictures and see they are similiar.

Team-me

Carah... wow.
A fashion icon? Well, since you know so much about this skank, do you mind sharing with the class how many times her brands have been accused of ripping off REAL fashion icons? More than once. Real fashion icons do not get accused of being rip offs because they have REAL talent.
She has no talent. If you look at photos of her from years ago, she looks so young and fresh and naturally beautiful. Now she looks like she shoots up botox like it's crack.
Everything about her is 100% FAKE. Can you not hear it in her whiny, superficial voice? Is it not obvious that her "reality" has been written? Nothing about her is real, except for her big, fat ass.

DISGUSTING!! Carah, you're a moron. Kim's a skeeze. Slime on the bottom of a snake. Doggy do. Garbage rotting in the sun. MEDIA hates Kim too but yet they keep writing about her even though no one wants to hear about her sleazy undertakings!! Enough. Media and the public can make it stop if no one buys her products or magazines with her nasty pictures on them. Make it stop. No kardashians in 2012!!!!!!!

God, fucking haters! Kim is famous for something, a god damn sex tape, and she made it big with that. Stop shitting all over her, She's a fashion icon, a beauty icon....that makes her something. Stop questioning her motives...if it's to make money why the fuck do you have a problem? We all would do what she does in a second to be that rich. Don't lie. Seriously leave Kim ALONE!

MARRIAGE: a 72-day sham of an instituion entered into by two people who worship money, fame, and themselves more than what it REALLY takes to love, honor and cherish....

Come on THG! To call that fame "ho" a "celebrity" is down right insluting, I mean insulting. You are right about one thing, she is popular and got your #1 for doing NOTHING but rump shaking, sex tapes and planning and participating in that sham-WOW marriage! Katastrophe defines her more than "celebrity". She is FAMOUS but(t) only for a sex tape that started that whole Kartrasian empire. I can't wait until she is a "commercial" success selling TP for Charmin.

One can be famous or popular but if one is not notorious, one can never be THE CELEBRITY of the year.

Selena Gomez should be at #1. She has sold over 1,350,000 albums in america alone. Her album went platnum in July I believe, she supports 5 charities (A Day Made Better, ENOUGH Project, Ryan Secreast Foundation, St. Judes Children Research, & UNICEF) She also invested in her postcard run, she announced that she will be making a new fragrance & is letting her fans decide, & sge wrapped up her show Wizards thia year, & She Also signed on to an upcoming movie with vanessa hudgens, emma watson (?) & James franco. Wat has kim done, WORK WISE? -.-
