The 13 Most Controversial Crushable Articles Of 2013

6. Harry Styles Is So Much Better Than His Fakelationships, So What Gives?

Harry Styles is one of the most popular celebrities in the world right now, so we were curious about why he kept getting involved in fakelationships with people like Taylor Swift last year, and even dipping down into the D-List to date Kendall Jenner. What gives? Well his fans do — they give their opinions. LOUDLY.

7. Game Of Thrones Just Replaced A Cast Member Because Of Spoily Spoilersons

This one time, I wrote about a casting change on Game Of Thrones and put the word ‘spoiler’ in the title and in the post and EVERYWHERE because I wanted to talk about why they probably did it. But it wasn’t enough for these commenters whose lives I apparently ruined.

8. New Selena Gomez Single Leaks…Is Demi Lovato The More Talented One?

In March, a Selena Gomez song leaked, and I didn’t care for it all that much, so I speculated that Demi Lovato might be the more talented of the two. Just a heads up for the future — that’s an excellent way to start a teenybopper riot in the comment section. (Although Demi totally is better.)

9. A Cliff Notes Guide To The Ridiculous Duck Dynasty Homophobia And Racism Scandal

About a week ago, when Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson was still on indefinite hiatus from the A&E cash cow reality show, I decided to catch people up on the controversy by taking his homophobic, racist quotes from GQ verbatim and giving my opinion on them…which was apparently a free speech violation that I will burn in hell for. Don’t ask me how, because it doesn’t make any sense.

10. No Really, Who Told Julianne Hough It Was Okay To Wear Blackface For Halloween?

We thought everyone would be as annoyed at and disappointed in Julianne Hough as we were when she went in blackface this past Halloween to portray the character Crazy Eyes on Orange Is The New Black, but you’d be surprised how many people called us racist just for pointing out that what she did was inappropriate and ignorant. (If not actually racist, per se.)

11. Joe Jonas Smoking And Being Rude To Fans — Officially The Worst Of The Jonas Brothers

There was a rumor going around that Joe Jonas was seen smoking and being rude to fans, so we wrote a very tongue-in-cheek post, put together an incendiary title, and forgot all about it. But even though there aren’t a ton of comments on that post, we got more than our fill of angry responses via Twitter.

12. Taylor Swift Forgets To Change Out Of Hangout Clothes For Her Own Concert

In which I have a heated argument with (someone I later realized was) a fourteen-year old commenter over my sarcastic comments about one of Taylor Swift‘s costume changes at a concert of hers. I’ve never felt more alive.

13. Austin Mahone Still Refuses To Admit That He And Justin Bieber Are The Same Person

And finally, as promised, behold the froths that Mahomies whip themselves up into at the merest suggestion that their idol Austin Mahone is the exact same person as Justin Bieber.

See you guys next year, for even more fun and death threats!

    Sometimes, I am amazed by the trolls that come out of the woodwork for some of these posts.

      It never ceases to amaze me how much people care about celebrities who don’t know they exist. Defend them all the live long day, but it won’t matter to them.

      Are you including yourself by writing about them? Jes askin’

    • Jenni

      I’ve never issued death threats to someone because of their feelings toward a celebrity, so no.

    • http://twilightirruption.blogspot.com/ abbeysbooks

      I don’t see anything about death threats. When did that come up?

    • Jenni

      I promise that if you read the articles, the commenting section will be much more valuable to you!
