I know that as an entertainment editor, I should probably spend at least some time towards the end of the year thinking about the best pop culture ~things~ that happened in 2019. But, to be totally honest, I don't think these roundups are ever any fun. Like, what am I supposed to say? "All of these good movies were...very good!" Where's the DRAMA? I'd rather remember all of the moments that made 2019 a total dumpster fire. So, in lieu of a list of the best, here are the best worst pop culture things that happened this year.
1. Last Christmas
MAN, this one was brutal. I truly believe that Last Christmas is one of the worst movies I have ever seen in my entire life, let alone this year. Although I spent the entire film waiting for it to get less bad...I genuinely enjoyed talking smack about it throughout this entire holiday season.
2. "Earth" by Lil Dicky
3. The Starbucks cup in Game of Thrones
2019: The year we learned that no, nothing is sacred.
4. The Masked Singer
For total transparency, I should let you know that I have never watched a single episode of The Masked Singer. But you know what? I am confident that it is cursed.
5. The Cats trailer
It has been months since the Cats trailer dropped, and I'm just out here trying to figure out why they have human noses and only SOME of them wear clothes.
6. The Boys
7. Luke P. on The Bachelorette
Chris Harrison was right. This really was the most dramatic season yet. Luke Parker turned Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette into a masterclass in gaslighting. It was impossible to look away from.
8. The Goldfinch
Rest in peace, all of our expectations for this Ansel Elgort movie.
9. The Perfection
I'm still not sure if I actually watched The Perfection, or if it was just a fever dream.
10. Zac Efron's panini beard
11. Tall Girl
12. Sonic the Hedgehog's makeovers
Props to Sonic the Hedgehog for having the best glow down, then glow up of 2019!
13. Quentin Tarantino's foot fetish
14. Secret Obsession
15. The last season of Jane the Virgin
They really made Michael so yeehaw.
Bajillions of fans were so excited for this steamy movie...that ended up not being so steamy, after all. Luckily, the next one is going to be rated R.
17. All of the puking in The Dirt
Was this absolutely necessary?! Probably not!
18. Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes making out all of the time.
WHEN WILL THIS END? I feel like everywhere I look, one of their tongues is wiggling around looking for the other one's mouth.
19. The snake that burst into butterflies at the end of Taylor Swift's "ME!" video
I just feel like I could have lived my entire life without a CGI moment that looked like it was designed by Ed Hardy, set to a Taylor Swift song.
