We spent much of December looking back at the stars, stories and celebrity scandals that made 2010 so memorable. Now we look ahead to a brand new year.

Some scandals will come out of nowhere. Some celebs will make news for reasons we can't predict, and random people will become stars of the gossip world.

Still, there are some potential stars, feuds and topics we already have our eye on. Here are 11 Hollywood news stories to keep your eye out for in 2011 ...

Up Klose with Kim

Is this the year people tire of Kim and the 'Tag? Was that 2007-2010?

11. The Michael Jackson trial. Will Dr. Conrad Murray be held criminally liable for the death of the King of Pop in a precedent-setting manslaughter case?

10. Reality bites. Oh, but you know you still watch. The question? Will the Jersey Shore cast, Kardashians and Real Housewives get bigger, or fade away?

9. Repeat offenders. Will the likes of Floyd Mayweather, Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan get it together for their own good, or keep effing up for ours?

It's nice to be the girlfriend of Jake Gyllenhaal. Very, very nice.

The actor has reportedly played wealthy Santa Claus to Taylor Swift, gifting her over the last couple weeks with a number of high-priced items. According to In Touch Weekly, Gyllenhaal has handed out:

  • A $10,000 Fender Gretsch guitar, signed by country artist Chet Atkins.
  • A $100,000 diamond bracelet that sources describe as "Oscar-worthy."
  • Due to the couple's mutual love of coffee, 21 pounds of the best Kona beans available, along with a coffee grinder and a maker.

Gyllenhaal also went with a home-made Christmas card over a generic store-bought one. No wonder Swift is obsessed with Jake, huh?

Taylor Swift celebrated her 21st birthday with friends and family members yesterday.

But while sources confirm there was no alcohol at the event, that doesn't mean the singer wasn't drunk... on love!

According to Us Weekly, Jake Gyllenhaal was on hand at Swift's "low key" celebration, held at her home in Nashville, and he was acting "cuddly and so cute" with his rumored girlfriend. An attendee said these two were "obsessed" with each other all night.

Not Her Best Look

Aside from a lovely girl on his arm, Gyllenhaal has another reason to smile today: he's been nominated for a Golden Globe. Congrats all around!

Pop some champagne today, readers, Taylor Swift turns 21!

There's little that can be said about the artist at this point, and even less that can be purchased for her as a birthday present.

She already owns every important award known to Hollywood kind; she's been cited as the 2010 Entertainer of the Year; she enjoys numerous endorsement deals; and she has a new stud muffin on her arm.

Swift and Fans

How does Taylor plan on spending the occasion?

“I definitely want a winter-themed birthday, Christmas-themed,” she said last week. “And I’d really like to have it in my condo. I think that would be wonderful."

It's always a good idea to get an Entertainer of the Year on your side.

So went the thinking at CoverGirl, as that company has hired Taylor Swift as its spokesperson for its NatureLuxe collection of beauty products. Starting next month, expect to see this singer in various commercials.

“I’m really excited for people to discover the new NatureLuxe line from CoverGirl!” Taylor says. “The Silk Foundation and Gloss Balm are really light and fresh; they feel amazing on my skin.”

And Swift looks amazing in these photos. Go behind the scenes of her shoot in this video:

Talk about an impressive feat: Taylor Swift has been named Entertainer of the Year... for the second consecutive time!

Following the Associated Press honoring the singer with this distinction in 2009, Entertainment Weekly has done the same for 2010.

EW Entertainer of the Year

What has Taylor done to earn this title from EW? Only begin the year with a number-two single debut (“Today Was a Fairytale”), a hit movie (Valentine’s Day), and a quartet Grammy wins, including Album of the Year.

She also headlined a series of arena concerts and sold over one million copies of the album "Speak Now."

But Jake Gyllenhaal and Taylor Swift haven't been photographed acting like a legitimate couple... until now!

You've heard the rumors. You've read the quotes from anonymous sources. But you still haven't seen Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal together.

Until now!

Following a Thanksgiving morning spent at a Brooklyn coffee shop, this likely couple visited Swift's hometown of Nashville over the weekend. Yesterday afternoon, the two were seen getting breafast at Fido, a coffeehouse and café near Vanderbilt University. Allow us to present actual evidence this time:

Swiftenhaal: Alive and well!

"They were smiling and laughing. They were talking a lot and enjoying each other's company," a witness told People. "They didn't look like friends."

Another customer named Emma Rice, who posted this picture online, added that Taylor and Jake looked "very cute" and "seemed close."

Taylor Swift and Chelsea Handler have something in common: an affection for 50 Cent.

But while the latter may possess carnal knowledge of this rapper, the former simply likes his music.

"When we're on tour, we have all three girls - the backup singer, the fiddle player, and me in one room - and we all warm up to 50 Cent music," Taylor told Chelsea during an interview this week. "It would be surprising how many lyrics I know."

Later in the discussion, talk turned to Swift's 21st birthday. It takes place on December 13.
