You would think that Michael Jackson's death would be number 1.

Biggest celeb news was Michael Jackson. There were straight whole weeks dedicated to him, a pop celebrity *eyeroll* I didn't say that it was the one I like, but it was the biggest headline of the year.

I think Chris brown bashing rhianna's face in was the biggest. Everyone dies, lots of men cheat but not as many celebs hit girls!

I found Brittany Murhpy to be the biggest celebrity headline of the year. MJ's death was tragic - but not as unexpected.

Twilight and New Moon are bad movies, at best. MJ's death was much more influential and important in terms of the world. Biggest headline? Definitely if you are over 15 years old would be MJ. Grow up Twilight groupies. The movies suck.

How can anyone say that Twilight is bigger than MJ's passing? That guy was a legend!

Michael Jackson's death, it was everywhere all of the time. I didn't find the Tiger Wood's thing so surprising, I took an instant dislike to him when I saw him in an interview for the first time a few months ago. He just seemed so up himself with a massive ego.
