11 Things Everybody Made Fun Of But Secretly Loved In 2014

Cuz the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate.

1. Iggy Azalea

Don’t even act like you didn’t turn the volume all the way up and pronounce “fancy” like ‘fan-say.” You can hate all you want, but every single one of us jammed out to her songs this year.

2. The Ice Bucket Challenge

It was the stupid trend of the summer… up until the moment someone challenged you.

3. Taylor Swift

You can make fun of “Shake It Off,” but once you hear it, you’ll be singing it all day long. She’s right, you know, we do love the game.

4. Saying The Word “Basic”

Sure, we might hate it now, but we all used “basic” to describe ourselves and/or our friends, and pretty much everything else around us. #Basic

5. Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte

I know you ordered at least one this year. Stop playin’.

6. Kim Kardashian’s Butt

OMG! Kim Kardashian showed her butt! She broke the internet! LOLOLOLOLOL. Yeah, but how many times did you look at that picture. I’ll wait while you tally it up…

7. Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” Video

Nikki put her big-ass butt in front of all of our faces and we couldn’t get enough of it. “It’s practically porn!” What? Jealous?

8. Matthew McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey easily had the best year of his life and all we could focus on was his Oscar speech. Why? Because we can’t get enough of his “out there” personality. This is your world, McConaughey, and we’re just living in it.

9. Rihanna’s Diamond Dress

Again, I’ll wait for you to count up the times you looked at Rihanna in this dress.

10. Pharrell’s Hat

A fashion statement became his signature look and we secretly loved it every time he wore an oversized hat.

11. Jaden and Willow Smith’s Interview

Yes, the Smith kids are different and unique and shockingly candid, but we are pretty much obsessed with them. And for the record, Jaden is 16 years old and Willow is only 14. Y’all wish you could get on their level.
