21 Things from 2014 That Need Never Be Spoken Of Again in 2015
Now that it's 2015, we can look wistfully back on the year that was 2014... or run off into the sunset with the New Year and leave all that old hoo-ha behind! In the world of pop culture, 2014 was full of puh-lenty of annoying trends. Whyyyyyyyy was there a Kim Kardashian game. WHY. From one of the worst television send-offs of all time to a magazine over that couldn't be avoided no matter how hard you tried, there's plenty I'd be happy to never EVER speak of again in 2015. Pretend like this list is white pants and today is Labor Day. Read on... if you can handle revisiting the awfulness.

Robert Downey Jr.
In case you missed it, he thinks feminism is make-believe. BYEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
'True Detective' Casting Predictions
Do us all a favor for Season 3, just tell us who you have in mind from the get-go. Otherwise your fanbase might be too irritated by all of the rumors to care.

Not only is it old news, it was way-blown-out-of-proportion news. Speaking of which…
Bey and Jay Divorce Rumors
Their PR machine has it covered, trust.

"Let it Go" Re-Makes
How original and not completely over-done.
Fake Taylor Swift Frenemies
Everyone just wants lady hate, and Taylor refuses to let that happen. You do you, Tay Tay and FRIENDS.
MTV's 'Faking It'

Losing Our Minds Over Celebrity Haircuts
J Law got a total mom ‘do in ‘13 and Shailene Woodley followed suit in ‘14, Beyonce “cut her bangs,” Jake Gyllenhaal rocked the man bun, Zayn Malik made hairbands on men totally acceptable…it’s just hair everyone. It’s not like this is Felicity.
