1. Let's just get straight in there with this one. Hiddleswift became a real life thing this year.
2. Taylor Swift started dating Tom Hiddleston straight after splitting from Calvin Harris, which was pretty WTF anyway. But then things moved insanely quickly. Here they are meeting Tom's mother after just NINE DAYS of dating.
3. Then just over TWO WEEKS after they started going out, Tom declared his love for Taylor on a T-shirt for the world to see.
4. He wore it during her 4th July party, which, as usual, included her billions of celeb friends. Including Ryan Reynolds, and this photo was born.
5. Also, there was a time when Tayvin got pretty damn messy post breakup.
Here's the summary: Taylor and Calvin broke up; things were totally fine. Some shit happened, they deleted every pic of each other, Taylor started her romantic world tour with Tom Hiddleston, and then Calvin Harris went off on Taylor on Twitter.
6. It happened when it was revealed Taylor actually wrote “This Is What You Came For”, Calvin's song with Rihanna.
And it appeared like Katy Perry maybe, could have possibly responded with a GIF.
Get the full lowdown here people.
7. It was also the year there was a WHOLE lot of Kanye and Taylor beef. It started when Kanye released a song called “Famous” with the lyrics “I think that me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that bitch famous”. This caused a LOT of drama.
Basically Taylor claimed that she never approved the lyrics, and warned Kanye not to release it.
8. Then there was a lot of back and forth. Kanye said she definitely heard and loved it, Kim K backed him up in her GQ interview .
9. THEN SHIT GOT TOTALLY MESSY. Kim decided to upload the video of the phone call between Kanye and Taylor to Snapchat. We're still not over it tbh.
10. Anyway, then Taylor put this on Instagram following Kim's snapchat reveal.
BUT THAT WASN'T ALL.
11. A shit load of other celebs got involved, including Chloë Moretz, who dubbed the whole thing “petulant and unimportant”.
12. So of course Khloe Kardashian got involved, and it ended up being Khloe vs Chloë. Kim's sister tweeted this, alongside a picture of a girl that looked like Moretz from the back with her swimming bottoms falling down and showing off her bare bottom.
Which led to Chloë hitting back with this.
13. Anyway, Ruby Rose weighed in etc etc.
14. But it wasn't all about Taylor. Lindsay Lohan debuted a new weird accent.
15. And also shared numerous unexpected EU Referendum tweets. Like these.
Who knew she cared so much about British politics?
16. Oh, also Kanye went to Trump Tower to hang out with Donald because that's what a regular week day looks like in 2016 now. Apparently they just discussed "life".
17. Kim Kardashian decided to snapchat her way through a pregnancy scare. Because why not.
“I’m legit in the airplane bathroom and I’m gonna take a pregnancy test, because I’m having a little bit of a scare,” she said in a video. “So, no big deal.”
18. 2016 was also the year Nick Jonas revealed he once got high and had a boner at the Young Hollywood Awards.
Please see Exhibit A.
19. Heidi Klum dressed as six Heidi Klums for Halloween, as you do.
20. Then there was all the Blac Chyna/Rob Kardashian drama. We're over the shock of them getting together. We think we're even almost over them having a baby together and calling their daughter Dream Kardashian ❤️
21. But we're not sure we're over their relationship in early December. It's a bit of a long story, but it started with a load of messages that appeared on Blac Chyna's Instagram account.
22. But things got weirder just after that when Rob started posting on Snapchat claiming she'd walked out on him for Christmas with their baby. As he toured his empty home he said, “Got the Christmas tree all set up for Chyna and the baby, but they left me.”
Oh, and to make matters worse she apparently left with all of the food from the house as well. “She took all the Eggos. Man, all my Eggos,” he said as he showed viewers an empty fridge and pantry. “Where’s my sugar? She took my sugar! She took my OPEN bag of my favorite chips!”
23. Then, because this wasn’t all weird enough, Rob started posting memes — HONEST TO GOD, MEMES — about the apparent breakup of his family.
Anyway, you can read all the details here in full if you want to get totally up to speed.
24. 2016 also saw Leonardo DiCaprio making out with Dame Maggie Smith at the BAFTAs.
26. But maybe the best Leo moment of all was when he took a selfie and was really impressed with himself.
"Who is that fine gentleman?”
27. Oh, and this year, after 200 million years, Leo FINALLY won a goddamn Oscar.

43. But Kim Kardashian of course went one further and started selling butt collage wrapping paper on hers.
44. Gigi Hadid was picked up by a random dude and held in his grip for a few moments during Milan Fashion Week.
