It’s time for us all to say goodbye to 2008 and hello to 2009. I’m excited for what 2009 will bring. With more modeling on its way, a great boyfriend, and a new acting agency to top it all off, I think this year will be a good one. What is everyone’s New Year Resolutions? I have three: to put work as a first priority, get into shape, and remember to spend time with the family. It’s funny because last year my New Year Resolutions were exactly the same except I needed to spend less time with family and more with friends. Enough about me, I wanted to make a post dedicated to the great 2008 (Sorry, I know that was beyond cheesey!)
2008 was a year of surprises. Britney had everyone watching as she plumitted to the bottom but now is making it higher than she ever was. The most amazing special of 2008 I have to say goes to Britney’s documentary For the Record. People.com takes a quote from Britney that amost made me cry when I saw her. I’m so proud of her and I hope she continues her exciting climb to the top into the New Year. I’m excited to be seeing her perform in New York in 2009!
Another surprise that doesn’t have a happy ending is the story of the tragic ending to one of the most talented actors ever (and a total heart throb), Heath Ledger. With a rumored and well-deserved Oscar nomination coming up in the New Year, we all can’t get Heath out of our thoughts.
2008 was a year of matrimony and these marriages also were full of surprises. Beyoncé, the self-sufficient ‘Single Lady’, finally married Jay-Z after years of dating. On the contrary, Mariah Carey married Nick Canon after two months of dating which was completely a surprise but what’s more of a surprise is that they are going into 2009 without a divorce. Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz also tied the knot in a rock and roll sort of way and the suprising part of this marriage is that this preacher’s daughter devliered her baby in the same year, making this one of the busiest years for Ashlee since she lipsynced her way to the D list. The last surpising marriage of 2008 was Ellen and Porshia’s, which was totally cute but completely surprising given the fact that two women were able to get married in the state of California. They aren’t the only two women in a romance causing a stir in 2008. Lindsay Lohan and her DJ Sam Ronson have also committed to a relationship.
Hope you liked this recap of 2008 and to finish this post of here are some fashionable celebrities in 2008:
