    Definitive Proof That 2009 Was The Best Year Ever

    RE: BUZZFEED APPLICATION Let's set the record straight

    1. So we've been hearing some rumors lately


    And not of the awesome Adele variety

    2. It all began when someone said that 2007 was the best year ever


    And we're just like...

    3. But how can this be true when everyone knows that 2009 was the best year the new century has ever known?


    4. Allow us to explain

    5. Perhaps you've forgotten the plethora of cultural magnificence that 2009 graced us with

    Including the first Fast & Furious film, Lady Gaga's Fame Monster, and Ke$ha's Tik Tok single

    6. Oh, and the beginning of Ellie Goulding's glorious pre-Calvin Harris career

    And this amazing look

    7. Katy Perry's "Waking Up in Vegas" video

    Pre-Russell Brand Katy seems so far away

    8. And Gossip Girl's amazing 3rd season

    9. You know, the one with Hilary Duff

    As Dan Humphrey's other other love interest

    10. And (ugh) Charlie

    We're still trying to forget

    11. I mean okay, 2009 certainly had its ups and downs

    Remember this disaster? Hopefully not

    12. But mostly ups

    13. And even through the downs, we were too busy to care

    WAY. Too. Busy.

    14. So what do you think? Was 2009 the best year ever?

    15. Or are there other contenders?
