Though this is something I have done for years on my personal Facebook account, I am proud to present to you for the very first time on Peach and Buck, the entertainment world in 2014!
A loss came real early with the passing of James Avery, who played our favourite Uncle Phil on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
Humble legend himself, Pharrell looked like an amateur on the 2014 Grammy stage in comparison to Daft Punk, Stevie Wonder and Nile Rodgers. Could not deal with Metallica performing One. I secretly loved the Imagine Dragons/Kendrick Lamar collaboration, and we shed a tear for live gay and straight marriages thanks to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. Top Grammys!
Justin Bieber made fuck up after fuck up, and our care levels lowered lower and lower.
Phillip Seymour Hoffman became just another celebrity dying of an overdose. Very sad. What of Hunger Games now?
Aussie TV started taking the business more seriously.
INXS took up most of the first half of the year.
The one and only Shirley Temple died at 85, as well as poetic genius, Maya Angelou at 86.
February had another loss, this one more tragic with the death of cyber bully victim and model Charlotte Dawson.
Leo didn’t win an Oscar. ‘Alright Alright Alright.’
Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘unconscious uncoupling,’ or some shit like that.
That fucking Selfie song.
There’s talk about cancelling Miami Ultra forever.
Iggy Azalea finally breaks through her own countries market. While the boys from Sydney, 5 Seconds of Summer were loved just as much overseas and in my opinion, this is what a boy band should be.
Deep House/early 2000’s sounding House made a comeback and were thrashed on radio. A mixture of genres and 50’s-70’s sounding like stuff was the musical theme of the year, also.
Need For Speed was finally here and damn was it good.
Season 2 of Arrow was like, ‘can’t even’ for me. And then season 3 began…
Solange went ape shit at Jay Z in an elevator.
Remember when it was Bieber versus Bloom?
Following Rihanna on Twitter during the World Cup, I must admit, was hot.
The Griffin’s went to Springfield.
A Downtown Abbey promo picture had a plastic bottle in it.
The Ice Bucket Challenge was something so many celebrities jumped on for a great cause. This was beautiful.
Beyonce’s performance at the VMA’s was like a big ‘fuck you’ to the rumours of her ‘pending’ divorce. In the meantime, Nicki did well to not let any boob fall out after her wardrobe malfunction.
Brangelina’s random secret wedding.
Brutally honest and hilarious Joan Rivers, dies.
Suicide takes the life of another artist, this time Simone from GRL. Regardless if you knew her, it’s sad and the band were at their peak.
Fellas, be honest, it was all about the booty thanks to Nicki Minaj and J-Lo.
Tay Swiz. Your beat is not “sick”.
Clooney’s 4 day Venice wedding. #yawn.
Mila Kunis officially becomes a MILF.
Renee Zellweger reveals a shocking new face.
When the controversial ending of the Aussie Bachelor was the most talked about subject for two days.
I was hoping to go a year without mentioning Kim K, but explain this. She can ‘break the internet’ with naked photos, but Alyssa Milano’s breastfeeding image earlier on was offensive? #stopmakingstupidpeoplefamous.
Timmy Trumpet’s Freaks is redone by a father and his son in their kitchen, and the video goes viral.
Red Foo got slaughtered for making a bad song. Because apparently he makes ‘art’?
They’re calling Interstellar the movie of the year.
When Jennifer Lawrence made it to the charts with her song from Mocking Jay Part 1.
Rodriguez’s Sugar Man got a redo and I’m totally torn on how to feel about that.
I’m An Albatraoz. Not sure if serious.
North Korea hacks Sony, bringing a halt to a movie release about the ‘assassination’ of North Korea’s leader. A comedy. A fictional story. Couldn’t tell who was more pathetic. But it will get released after all I hear.
One of the prettiest ladies of Hollywood, Sofia Vergara gets engaged.
Most thrashed songs include, Geronimo, Faded, Chandelier, I’m Ready, All About That Bass, Ghost, Bang Bang and Shake It Off. Most annoying has to be Becky G’s Shower (pronounced Shah-wah).
Artists we spoke about the most include, Sam Smith, Ariana Grande, 5SOS, Taylor Swift and Iggy.
Robin Williams death proves even legends struggle with demons. I leave you with his memory because that was a big deal for me this year. R.I.P Captain.
I’m sure I can go on forever about this years entertainment news, but the question remains as always, what was your most loved/hated song, movie, moment, TV show, etc in 2014?
Let me know below, and have a Happy New Year.
