It’s that time of the year again as every TV programme, radio show and website are taking a look at some of the most memorable moments from the past 12 months. As 2015 approaches we here at Premiere One PR have decided to join in the reminiscing and recap on some of our most popular posts and unforgettable moments of 2014.
1. Breaking The Internet
This year saw a lot of female celebrities baring all and showing off their best assets. Songs were released, videos were made and photoshoots dared to ‘Break The Internet’ all thanks to one piece of anatomy. Some bloggers and journalists have even named 2014 the ‘Year of the Booty’ and that’s all down to artists like J-Lo, Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj who released tracks in honour of their famous behinds. Then Kim Kardashian West came along and broke the internet with her butt bearing cover photo for Paper magazine. Talk of photoshop, instant memes and prayers for whoever had the job of oiling up the reality star abounded and made sure that Kim did exactly what she set out to do.
2. Gender Equality
There was a lot of talk about feminism and gender equality this year following Emma Watson’s U.N speech. The actress dispelled some myths, educated a few people and inspired even more to pay attention to discrimination and start to make a change. Her speech is a must watch and one of my personal favourite moments of 2014 as it inspired me to write a response to Emma which was read by a lot more people than I expected. There’s still a long way to go in terms of gender equality but it’s an issue that has been hugely highlighted and one that will continue to change in the new year.
3. The Elevator Incident
Now this is one of those infamous moments that will never be forgotten in the world of entertainment. Solange, Jay Z, Beyoncé and that elevator. I probably don’t need to say anymore but just in case someone missed the whole incident Solange Knowles attacked her brother-in-law in an elevator following the Met Gala. TMZ got a hold of the security footage thanks to an ex-employee of the hotel who must have earned a hefty pay cheque for showing the world that the Carter/Knowles family isn’t so squeaky clean and picture perfect after all. They never explained what happened and probably never will but it didn’t stop us from speculating!
4. Comeback Kids
2014 was a great year for music as we were introduced to great new talent but while we welcomed in the new kids, some of our seasoned favourites arrived back on the scene to show them how it’s done. Gwen Stefani dropped a couple new tracks while Fergie showed us some ‘L.A Love.’ Cheryl Fernandez Versini came back with a brand new sound to become the first British female solo singer to achieve five number one singles. J-Lo revived her signature ‘Jenny From The Block’ sound and Nicki Minaj arrived with the album all her fans had been waiting for. The ultimate comeback kid of 2014 should have been Chris Brown. Following a tumultuous few years it finally seemed like Brown was ready to move on and become the artist he should be but somehow ‘X’ fell a little short. Here’s hoping 2015 is a year of more stellar comebacks.
There’s no way you can possibly talk about the past twelve months without mentioning one of the most talked about couples. An Italian wedding, an Irish honeymoon, a controversial Vogue cover and a whole lot of selfies gave Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West the worldwide attention they always wanted. Kimye basically took over the internet in 2014 with fans and haters all over the world following their every move as Kanye embarked on his Yeezus tour and the proud parents gave their daughter North a first birthday party to remember….even though she probably won’t. Whether you like them or not it looks like Kimye are here to stay which is great really because it gives us something to write about!
We would like to wish all of our loyal readers a very Happy New Year and to everyone who has contributed to the site in the past year through guest blogs thank you very much! Here’s to a 2015 full of health, happiness, love and memorable moments! Happy New Year!!!
