New Year's Resolutions for Jon Gosselin and Kanye West
By Tracey Harrington McCoy Posted Dec 31st 2009 11:59PM
A new year is upon us and with it comes a slew of resolutions, including some made by Hollywood's biggest stars. While we could have rounded up a bunch of celebrities to find out what goals they were setting for 2010, we thought it'd be more fun to pick resolutions for them. So, from Jon Gosselin kicking his smoking habit to Susan Sarandon hitting the dating scene, here are our 2010 resolution suggestions for some of this year's hottest stars.
Jon Gosselin: First and foremost, this father of 8 needs to stop smoking. Yes, he had a rough year and yes, it probably helped to have a crutch, but maybe it's time he found another vice. Perhaps he could start playing the piano? Or writing in a journal? (Just don't let Michael Lohan anywhere NEAR it, Jon.) Gosselin should also make an effort to shun the spotlight for a little bit. In one year's time, he managed to go from the guy we all pitied on that 'Jon & Kate' show to the nation's No. 1 public enemy. Take a breather from the cameras in 2010 and maybe by 2011 we'll be ready to embrace you again. (Maybe.)
Kanye West: This resolution is pretty obvious but given Kanye West's track record over the past five years, it's not one he's made before: stay seated and zip it during any and all award shows. Let's be fair: maybe West hadn't made a concerted effort to keep his vanity in check in the past. Maybe the stage-hopping and backstage screaming fits are due to a lack of previously set New Year's resolutions. So what better promise to make to himself (and the music industry as a whole) than to simmer down at the Grammys, American Music Awards, MTV VMAs, Country Music Awards, People's Choice, ESPYs, Oscars, Golden Globes, among others. Practice the art of humility. We promise it will pay off in spades.
Susan Sarandon: Hollywood was shocked when Tim Robbins and Sarandon revealed they had ended their 20+-year relationship. However, Robbins' loss is Hollywood's gain. Overnight, Sarandon became the most eligible celebrity bachelorette. And our 2010 resolution suggestion for this brunette bombshell is -- live it up! Date up a storm! Enjoy being single! Take Clooney to a movie. Escort Nicholson to the Oscars. Give Tiger a call. Just enjoy the year. You're gorgeous -- have some fun with it.
Ashton Kutcher: The one thing we hope Kutcher finds a little more time for in 2010 is more Tweeting on the Twitter. Ten-12 times a day just isn't enough! Let's try and get that up to 20-25 by 2011. (We kid, Ashton.)
Sandra Bullock & Ryan Reynolds: Our New Year's resolution for this high-grossing pair is simple: don't change a single thing. Keep whoever is advising you on movie roles. Continue keeping your private lives private. Remain adorable. Just keep cruising and you just might top your amazing 2009.
Jude Law: For the cute-but-naughty British playboy, our resolution is short and sweet: propose to Sienna Miller -- and stay faithful to her. After Law's indiscretions several years back and his subsequent much-talked-about single-guy lifestyle, it's a miracle these two are back together at all. But Miller seems to have forgiven him and if these two truly give their romance another go, Law would reap some much-needed reputation repair. (It wouldn't hurt Miller's rep either.) So do it, mate! Propose! And we'll look for our invitation in the mail soon.
Jennifer Aniston & Jessica Simpson: These lovely ladies probably made this resolution last year but since they failed, it won't hurt to make it again this year: steer clear of John Mayer. He's just not that into you. Or good for you. You're both beautiful, funny, and charming. Find someone who appreciates those qualities and by extension, you. And this year, stick to your resolution!
