The 10 Stories We Want to See in 2011, Unlikely As They May Be
By Jett Wells Posted Dec 30th 2010 11:00AM
A new year always brings with it hope for the future. Some people aim to lose a few pounds, find love, read more books or travel, but in our case, we cross our fingers for celebrity pregnancies, great movies, the next YouTube darling and the odd bit of celeb dirt. With that in mind, PopEater presents the 10 stories we'd most like to see in the coming year. Sure, some of these 2011 predictions are pretty far-fetched, but we can dream! If these things happen next year, the world would undoubtedly be a better place. Let's start the insanity.
Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' Becomes Greatest Album of the Decade
The Princess of Pop has been a little out of it in 2010; she's still busy with her years-long, massively-successful Monster Ball tour and is finishing up her next epic album, 'Born This Way.' Every big-time musician tells you their next album is going to be the greatest thing ever. It's always a pretty bold statement, but Gaga's a pretty bold artist, so when she says her next set is going to be "the greatest album of this decade," we're willing to give her the benefit of the doubt. The hype is at an all-time high, with both Gaga and collaborator Akon talking it up like it's the second coming of 'Thriller.' Katy Perry's been outshining Gaga on the charts recently with the success of 'Teenage Dream,' but really, who isn't just a little excited for the potential second-coming of 'Bad Romance'?
Lindsay Lohan Stays Out of Trouble for 365 Days
Enough is enough. Lilo needs stay sober and clear-headed for a year just to prove that she can -- or she's bound to spontaneously combust into a pile of cigarette ash and self-tanner. While her troubles always give us PopEaters something to write about, we also legitimately miss the promising actress we once knew and don't want her to lose her mind entirely and become another tragic Hollywood story. Will it happen? Ask us around this same time next year.
Kim Kardashian Joins the Peace Corps
Kim Kardashian has had an amazing year, becoming one of the most famous women in the world while accomplishing next to nothing. She's gorgeous and we love hearing about her love interests, but just for laughs, let's hope she gives something back to society in 2011. Why not shoot high and sign her up for the Peace Corps?
Justin Bieber Launches the Next Four Loko
Justin Bieber isn't even old enough to vote, but if anyone could make alcoholic energy drinks legal again, it's the Biebs and his magic touch. This wish doesn't have a prayer, but it's hilarious to think about. Plus, imagine how many frat guys would start buying his music.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt Becomes an Official A-Lister
JGL had an up and down 2010: His role in Christopher Nolan's raved-about hit 'Inception' was career-changing, but he also lost his beloved brother "Burning Dan." The stylish up-and-comer could be on the cusp of mega-stardom with a couple more great roles, and the thing is, JGL deserves it.
Justin Timberlake Balances Music and Film
Justin Timberlake's fans have been waiting patiently for him to return to music after years spent trying to get his film career off the ground. Well, now that he's pulled it off with 'The Social Network,' and is getting Oscar buzz for his efforts, he needs to balance both. JT's been a workaholic since he was a teenager, so we know he can manage it if he wants to.
Antoine Dodson Goes Platinum
You've got to hand it the guy. Antoine Dodson turned an embarrassing interview gone wrong into a multimillion-dollar gimmick in a matter of months. He'll probably make even more money from branding T-shirts, but it would be awesome if his impending album sold a million copies. Then we'd know the true power of YouTube.
Willow Smith Talks Her Dad into Whipping His Hair on TV
We've seen Willow whip her hair a thousands times since October, giving a small army of baby boomers spontaneous chronic neck pain. But now it's time for daddy Will Smith to finally step into the limelight and whip it with his daughter. Oh, and we'd like him to wear an outfit from 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' when he does it. Just for fun.
Beyonce Finally Gets Pregnant
Next to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Jay-Z and Beyonce are the most powerful celebrity couple out there; the only difference is they're not parents. Beyonce pregnancy rumors swirl constantly, and each time fans are left disappointed. Here's to 2011 being the year Beyonce finally becomes a mom.
Kanye West and Taylor Swift Collaborate to Make the Top Single of 2011
Although it's more likely Angie cheats on Brad with Michael Cera, it would be poetic if Kanye and Taylor put their differences aside and came together to make music. Neither would ever actually do it, but it would be the perfect climax to a roller coaster story.
