Entertainment behind the scenes
Time to say bye-bye to Jacko and Miley?
It’s been an eventful year in celebrity news, and even if it has been light on scandals , stars held the attention of fans.
But some big names, notably Michael Jackson and Miley Cyrus, appear to have worn out their welcome, according to a fan poll from celebrity Web site Parade.com.
Some 41 percent of respondents said Jackson, who turned 50 in 2008 with no sign of making good on repeated promises of a comeback, should officially retire. They also said the pop star’s antics are the most disturbing behavior from any Hollywood star.
Fans chose Disney star Miley Cyrus as the most overexposed celebrity. At the age of 16.
The wedding of comedian Ellen DeGeneres and actress Portia de Rossi ranked as the year’s most exciting nuptial, with 29 percent of respondents choosing it as their favorite. The wedding was made possible by a California court ruling allowingt same-sex weddings that voters rejected in November, but not before several gay and lesbian stars were married.
Singers Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale clinched the year’s craziest baby name spot by naming their son Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale. Some 48 percent of poll respondents called the name, which brings to mind famous Zuma Beach in Southern California, the most out-there name of the year.
Fans thought pop diva Britney Spears had the most improved reputation. As for the relationship between singer Lindsay Lohan and celebrity DJ Samantha Ronson, only 1 percent of respondents said that couple is “most likely to succeed.”
How would you have voted? Have Miley and Jacko really outstayed their welcome or would you still like to have them around for another few years?
