It’s 2013! So much has happened in the pop culture world since the beginning of January in 2012, and I thought it would be fun to take a walk down memory lane. Just think, a year ago today, you didn’t know that:
Gotye (featuring Kimbra) would one day take over the airwaves, with “Somebody That I Used to Know,” appearing on every single station at the same exact time.
You wouldn’t be able to turn on the news without seeing someone doing a “Gangnam Style” parody.
Ditto with YouTube and “Call Me Maybe.”
Honey Boo Boo and her family even existed.
YOLO would become a thing.
Channing Tatum would wind up in practically every movie – and actually be funny! (Hey, I really liked 21 Jump Street).
Kim and Kanye would not only get together, but also procreate.
The biggest memes would include a gymnast who was not impressed, binders filled with women, and Angelina’s leg.
Twilight fans would blow a collective gasket when Kristen Stewart was seen with a man who was decidedly not Edward.
You still thought that:
Clint Eastwood was Dirty Harry, not a man who talks to empty chairs.
Bath salts were strictly for use in the bathtub.
50 Shades of Grey was something related to Pantone.
Lana Del Rey was a street name in Santa Barbara.
Tom and Katie, Amy and Will, and Seal and Heidi would make it.
The world would end on December 21″¦the Mayans would never lie to us!
