With a new year quickly approaching, we're doing more than stocking up on Champagne and re-remembering the lyrics to "Auld Lang Syne." We're also stopping to reflect on the year that was: and what a year 2010 was for fashion, music, and film. Ke$ha convinced us to throw away our toothbrushes; Justin Bieber melted 12-year-old hearts worldwide; and James Franco managed to juggle about nine careers at once. They (and 15 others) deserve to be recognized for their efforts! And so, without further ado, we are proud to present: Interview's Faces of 2010.
Admit it, just between the two of us: you love Justin Bieber, just like everyone else in America does. When Bieber put out his first full studio release, My World 2.0, in March, his fate was sealed: he was fated to become the teenybopper prince of 2010. This was also the year Bieber decided to tell us his story: at the tender age of 16, he released a memoir, First Step 2 Forever, in October. Plus, September brought the news that Bieber accounts for three percent of all Twitter traffic. Not too bad for a kid who got his start at local singing contests.
Quotable in 2010: "I haven't been in love yet. I've definitely loved girls. But it's kinda like puppy love. It's not the real thing, but that's what you think at the time," Bieber explained to Interview in April.
