Like Jennifer Hudson tearing it down at the Oscars, January 2013 was a tough act to follow. We had break-ups, we had make-ups, we had shotgun weddings and just plain old shenanigans. January was important because it set the tone for 2013, but equally as pivotal was our dear month of February. It doesn’t matter how many trends you try to start, if they don’t catch on, they’re nothing. “Stop trying to make fetch happen! It’s not going to happen!”
Luckily, for us, fetch… I mean February made it happen. January hinted that 2013 would be a crazy year, and now we can confirm it. This month had no shortage of online scandals, bar-fighting scoundrels and scantily clad singers literally hijacking the Super Bowl. And because February was awards show month, we were dealing with the top of the top. A-list drama. So fetch juicy.
So now with March in our sights (St. Patrick’s Day! Passover! Easter! Spring Break! National Kidney Day…?) we bid adieu to you February, but not before taking a few minutes to make a toast to all that you have done for pop culture. Cheers to the…
93 minutes in Beyoncé’s HBO documentary, Life Is But A Dream.
30 seconds – the approximate time of Blue Ivy’s adorable cameo.
2 tours cancelled (Lady Gaga and No Doubt.)
50,000 different YouTube interpretations of the Harlem Shake, which have garnered…
200,000,000 views. At least. And the number is growing every minute.
3:32 – the duration of Demi Lovato’s new single “Heart Attack.”
9 countries in which the song reached #1 within a day of its release.
21 performances during the 2013 Grammys.
1 of which was completely terrifying (Taylor Swift, we’re talking to you.)
.002 – the number of seconds it took for Jennifer Lawrence’s tumble at the Oscars to be made into a gif and go viral. And be chosen as the photo for this article.
2 incriminating pictures of Miley Cyrus smoking weed to hit the Internet.
0 – amount of f***s she gave about the scandal. Miley = new Rihanna? (Minus the actual releasing music part, and all.)
53 characters in Justin Bieber’s tweet that transformed Black Keys’ drummer Patrick Carney’s words into an all out feud.
$112,000 – the price of bail for Olympic athlete, Oscar Pistorius, after he allegedly killed his girlfriend on Valentine’s Day.
77 – the age difference between the record youngest (Quvenzhané Wallis, 9) and oldest (Emmanuelle Riva, 86) actresses ever nominated for Best Actress at the Oscars.
50% – Adele’s progress in achieving an EGOT (winning an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony.)
17 – the current count of pregnant celebs. Babies are so trending right now.
1? – The lone suitor, Tom Odell, that Taylor Swift has been linked to since ending things with Harry Styles.
And just like that, it’s March. Don’t forget to say “rabbit, rabbit” at midnight and wish to the powers that be to make the coming month as momentously bitchin’ as its predecessor. They say three times a charm, be we know you have it in you March.
