Why am I putting you through this? To make ABSOLUTELY SURE you’re ready and willing and stoked to kick 2014 to the curb. But also, this was my attempt to keep all these yahoos from bogging down the “Worst of the Rest” slideshow, because all that awfulness that DIDN’T depend on transparency — or nudity, or both — deserved its moment in the sun. Separated out like this, anyone who’s too terrified to wade in here can scroll on past. But I recommend it just for the fact that you will learn who designed Charli XCX’s Peter Cottontail number, and no, the answer is not, “She glued those puffs on herself.”
