List-a-licious: The -est of 2007

By Liz Kelly

It isn't only Santa who gets listy in December. Lazy observers of culture (present company sheepishly included) also turn to the list -- a convenient way to create splashy content with minimal reportage.

Here at Celebritology central, we've been accumulating an uber-list of this year's smartest, dumbest, couply-est, searchy-est, buzziest, etc., crafted in an attempt to put a period at the end of the long, bloated, over-wrought sentence that I am writing was 2007. Grab some Earl Grey, pop in the ear buds and spend a little time with the bumper crop of lists below. And if you know of one not yet listed (duh), please add to the comments section.

The 20 Most Talked About Celebs of 2007
How Paris Hilton beat out Britney Spears to top this list, I'll never understand. Oh, and if you're not Australian, stop reading after no. 13.

Top 10 Smoking Hot Couples of the Year
Beyonce and Jay-Z reign supreme as the smoking-est duo of the year (must've been that whole nude beach thing). But don't Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil belong on the "bloodiest couple" list? What about Lance Armstrong and [insert generic blond hottie's name here]?

Most Likely to Lose It All
Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Amy Winehouse and... Michael Vick?

Most Overpaid
Choose between this list's top four: Madonna, George Lopez, Oprah Winfrey and Russell Crowe. Where is Paris Hilton? Hell, where is Perez Hilton for that matter?

Top Celeb Search Terms
See, you claim you're sick of her, but yet you make Britney Spears the top Yahoo search term of 2007. Make up your minds.

Lance Armstrong and [insert generic blond stick insect's name here] wouldn't be hot if you soaked 'em in gasoline and threw a match at 'em.

Yeah, what byoolin said. None of Lance's girls have been smokin hot. Cheryl Crow was passable at best but the crop after her. Need I remind you of the Mary Kate or Ashley which ever lil bag lady he was with.

even though it shouldn't count as a feud if one of the 'participants' isn't engaging/prolonging it, i thought the whole fabio/geo.clooney things was pretty dumb, and funny.

I absolutely agree about the Fabio thing. I also was pondering if Fabio should be on the "15 Minutes" list too. If that list includes the former-celebs on Dancing with the Stars as people cashing in, then Fabio is even more guilty. At least the dancing celebs are actually working hard to regain a place higher than the D list!

Okay, anyone on the Most Overpaid, Trying to Prolong 15 Minutes of Fame, Dumbest Feuds and Most Likely to Lost It List does NOT get a pony -- EVER.

The numbers have to be a mistake. Xtina Aguilera talked about more than Brangelina? It looks like Paris and Brit tied at 1.

What is Lance's problem? Going from Olsen twin to pre-op tranny Anne Coulter impersonator with HUGE man-hands is NOT trading up.

Isn't Dumb in Hollywood kinda redundant?

Speaking of not hot, I don't know in what universe Beyonce & JayZ would be considered "hot." She wears bad wigs badly & he's just fug. Rich, but fug.

As much as I find them annoying, I'd have to say that Brangelina would be my #1 on that hot couple list.

I kind of took hot to mean for each other, and Angelina seems like she is about as hot for Brad (or anyone else besides herself maybe) as a frozen fish stick!

Have you seen the verizon commercial where the girl actually does get a pony and is upset?

Rotten child should never get another gift.

I've seen that commercial. Its obvious who ever created it is an avid Celebritology reader.

Yeah, I was surprised that LiLo wasn't higher!

Oh, and no Katie/Kate Holmes/Cruise on that top 20 list??

Lance love's the bony broads.

You're doing it, Liz. You are referring to yourself as "we" in your blog. The gossip page in the Parade Magazine on Sundays does this. It is strange and annoying. I realize your blog is probably a collective effort of you and a few others, but it makes you sound a tad schizophrenic/MPD.
