Sluttiest Of ’08: Vote Now!

Anyone can be a slut, but only one person can be the sluttiest. In music, John Mayer got yet another Rolling Stone cover model addicted to what the dick did, and Danity Kane‘s Aubrey O’Day seemed to be making out with someone new every week — if not every day. On TV, Gossip Girl‘s Chuck Bass took soap opera studding to operatic, unprecedented heights while wearing a goddamn ascot, and VH1′s Angelique rocked so much love that we even caught her sending graphic texts to one of our office workers. For those about to get it on, we salute you!

Wasted Brit of ’08: Vote Now!

When it comes to going way too far with the partying, there’s no one who can do it quite like the British. Witness 2008′s most full-on caners. Amy Winehouse made trips in and out of rehab so often she collected loyalty points, all the while dressed like a cracked-out 1950′s housewife pining for Blake Incarcerated. Lily Allen kept it simple by being the archetypal belligerent drunk — heckling her co-presenter Elton John at the GQ Men of the Year night and also being carried out of the Glamour awards. Classic. Peaches Geldof kept her PDAs (that’s Public Displays of Alcholism) to a small number, but trumped them all when she was filmed buying drugs from Amy Winehouse’s alleged dealer (hey, it’s a small Camden) and then suffered from a suspected overdose in the summer. And while royal Princess Beatrice kept herself far more composed (and clever) than this, there was hardly a bash she wasn’t spotted at this year. Partying without the incriminating pap photo at the end of the night? We like!

Sneakiest Wedding Of ’08: Vote Now!

Wedding days are typically joyous, public affairs, filled with friends, family and attention. But when you’re a celebrity, they can take on the air of a black-ops mission. With more secrecy and lies than the Bush administration, Beyonce and Jay-Z attempted to pull off their rooftop wedding with little notice — and kept their nuptials under wraps until the day of, when deliveries to Jay’s apartment piqued interest. Also under deep, deep cover: Ryan Reynolds locked down his status as Luckiest Bastard Ever when he married Scarlett Johansson in a sneaky ceremony in a remote part of Canada — the event was kept so quiet, that’s all we know about it! Even though Ellen Degeneres and Portia DiRossi televised their bliss, no one knew about it until the day it aired on her show, which is one way to get an exclusive. Another set of nuptials that went down with a minimum of public attention? Jewel and boyfriend of ten years Ty Murray, who married in the Bahamas this summer.

Freshest Of ’08: Vote Now!

2008 was full of fresh celebrity faces. Blake Lively busted out as the sexy star of the hit show Gossip Girl. Hugh Hefner traded in 28-year-old Holly Madison for a brand new set of blonde girlfriends, 19-year-old twins Karissa and Kristina Shannon. John McCain picked more than a running mate when he tapped Sarah Palin as his vice-presidential nominee; he provided a colorful new character for 2008 who fueled tabloid covers, Saturday Night Live skits, and even a porno called Nalin’ Palin.

Although she’s generated headlines for a decade, a post-rehab and post-headshaving Britney Spears debuted a new, fresh persona, complete with a parental conservatorship, a new schedule that replaced nightclubbing with philanthropic visits, a composed VMA appearance, and a new album aptly titled Circus.
