Welcome back from the weather, everyone! Here’s a toast to the last “10 To Know” of the year! Oh, you’re the designated driver, you say? Well, okay. We’ll just clap.
1.) Is 50 Cent falling on hard times? The rapper took to the streets during Snowpocalypse 2010 to SHOVEL houses for $100 a pop. He should’ve charged $0.50 to stay on brand. (JustJared)
2.) Speaking of Snowpocalypse, aren’t blizzards a snowman’s most favorite thing ever? Buzzfeed has pics of 30 drunken snowmen who celebrated their good fortune a little too much. (Buzzfeed)
3.) Videogum basically did my job for me this week and rounded up all of 2010 biggest and most beloved viral videos in one concise listing. (Videogum)
4.) 2010 has turned out to be the year of a bajillion celebrity engagements! We can now add to the rolls: LeAnn Rimes, Lily Allen (yeah, that happened two seconds ago), Natalie Portman, Hugh Hefner (yuck), Ginnifer Goodwin, Jason Mraz, Bret Michaels, and Shania Twain. Who’d I miss? Oh, and Natalie gets bonus points for also being preggo. By the way. Rihanna? Not engaged. She and Matt Kemp broke up.
5.) A just-surfaced handwritten note by one teenage Amy Winehouse reveals that the future superstar dreamed of one day getting her teeth fixed and owning a tanning bed. Between that and her gravity-defying poof, I think we’ve got a solid case for at least one season of “Jersey Shore: London.” (The Sun)
6.) THIS JUST IN! Celebrities like to get crunk and tweet about it! People has prodigiously assembled a gallery of famous people, among them Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, tipping their glasses. (People)
7.) Gawker has this handy mashup of all the year’s best pop songs in a neat 3 minutes and 18 seconds, with Ke$ha landing serious real estate. (Gawker)
8.) Check out my favorite song of the year, “Whip My Hair,” performed on ice by a mini Willow Smith–who is already rully small, so imagine how teeny this tiny ice dancer is! (Buzzfeed)
9.) This is what it looks like when a cat puts on a bunny hat.
10.) Sir Elton John is a baby-daddy. Mazel, ya’ll! (MTV News)
