We’ve arrived at #1.
Over the past integrate weeks, THG has been counting down the stars which done 2012 such a noted year, from their sex tapes to their Billboard hits to their bare photos and stately babies.
We ranked Kate Middleton at #4, followed by Taylor Swift and afterwards Rihanna at #2. Who does which leave as the undisputed Celebrity of the Year?
The singer starred in dual blockbusters this year: Snow White and the Huntsman and Breaking Dawn Part 2. She additionally determined a little indie cred around On the Road.
But let’s face it: these purposes have been not the main reason Stewart done so many headlines in 2012.
Instead, Kristen’s many buzzed-about fulfilment (perhaps for the rest of her years) will be her event with Rupert Sanders, a story done for this publication age and done even some-more rare when Stewart essentially came out and certified to the scandal!
Her matter and open reparation to Robert Pattinson might go down as the year’s many intolerable moment.
