2016 is coming to a close, and with that comes list after list of bests —- the best actors, the best singers, the best emerging talent of the year.
But, let’s face it, there have been some seriously weird/sad/random moments moments that had they not existed, the celebrity entertainment world would definitely be a better place.
The following sucks irrefutably fall in to 2016’s con column.
Here are a smattering of this year’s happenings that we most wish we could take back:
1. The bitterness that followed Fifth Harmony losing Camila Cabello
Feelings were hurt all around when Camila Cabello decided to leave Fifth Harmony, but the public accusations that followed had Harmonizers taking sides. Understandably disappointed Lauren Jauregui, Ally Brooke, Dinah Jane and Normani Kordei put out a public statement before Camila had the chance to make the announcement herself. Camila said she was shocked at the move and released her own statement, which gave a brief version of her side of the story… and it kept going. The 5H split wasn’t totally shocking — after all, both Camila and Lauren were both publicly working on side projects — but we hope that time can heal the wounds between these former besties.
January 10 marked a rocky start to the New Year with everyone’s favorite Disney Channel coupleAustin & Ally — aka Laura Marano and Ross Lynch — gracing our screens one last time. The show’s exit left a gaping void in our lives that has yet to be filled by any amount of ice-cream or Hannah Montana reruns.
“Of course! I just texted with them this morning!” Laura told HuffPo. “It’s such a transition going from seeing each other every day to now not even being in the same state sometimes.”
She continued, “We knew going into season four that it would be our last, so that was kind of nice- we compared it to being like our senior year of high school and as if we would be graduating on to other projects rather than college. But, for four years, we were together all the time, so it was truly one of the best experiences of my life. I love all the awesome fans that came from the show and it’s been such and amazing ride.”
“I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since the first table read of #AustinandAlly,” Calum captioned the pics, which you can see below. “It changed our lives forever. We made a great TV show, we made memories that will last a lifetime and I made the decision to keep the same hair cut.”
When you leave a job behind, you always partake in an exit interview and with just days before Austin & Ally signs off, JJJ conducted our own. We’ve been speaking with the cast and creators about their best memories, the series finale and what’s next.
Ross Lynch starred as Austin Monica Moon, the overnight sensation who made it big by “stealing” a song from Ally Dawson after accidentally overhearing it inside Sonic Boom.
Austin is the guy who enters Ally’s life with a bang and just doesn’t leave. After stealing the song, the twosome become musical partners; and along with Ally, his best friend Dez, and friend/manager Trish, he’s set to conquer the Miami and the world’s music scene.
JJJ chatted with Ross briefly before he left on tour with R5 about the series, leaving Austin behind and more.
