The New Year already seems promising with a brand new royal scheduled to make his (or her) debut into the world. That will be thanks to the beautiful Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. Then there is Brangelina's upcoming nuptials. The couples' fans are waiting with bated breath for that one. What else might set the tone for 2013?
Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus and Rihanna
It's possible that Jennifer Aniston and her beau will also tie the knot in 2013, giving Angelina the kind of competition she doesn't want from her rival. Then, there is Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth who are also scheduled to tie the knot. Whether that will be this year; however, is anyone's guess. They're keeping mum about everything. Some people believe it's because there's already trouble in paradise; meaning they might not make it down the aisle at all.
No doubt Rihanna and Chris Brown will make headlines of some kind; hopefully not of the marrying kind. Their rekindled relationship is sitting on top a pile of dynamite. Everyone figures it will explode, they just don't exactly when it will happen.
American Idol will bore everyone to tears once again, proving that it should have been taken off the air a long time ago. The show's insistence on competing with the newer, and fresher Voice or even X Factor is just a bit sad. Except for Scotty McCreery, there hasn't been a big name come out of Idol in years.
New TV entries like Bates Motel and Hannibal promise to be violent and maybe even bloody. While the former will hide its gore on a cable network, the latter may make NBC persona non grata among parents. The subject matter is difficult enough. That's almost certain to yield some questionable television moments.
A New End to the World
Someone will likely predict yet another apocalypse which, as usual, won't happen. However, there's always the possibility that the real thing will come along and really surprise everyone. After all, the year does end in the number "13".
Movies, Music Video and More
One thing is certain. They'll be a whole new crop of films, musical albums and video games. What isn't certain; however, is if they'll be any good. Still, with the likes of Beyonce, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj headed back to the studio, anything could happen. That even includes a little music magic.
As for video games, there is always something new coming down the pike. The New Year won't be an exception. The graphics will get better, the action more intense and the price higher. Welcome to 2013!
Also a certainty is that phones, tablets and computers will get upgrades. They progress even faster than video games these days. Worse still, people who can't even afford to put food on the table, will invest what little cash they have in the upgrades. After all, technology is like a drug. Everyone's just got to have more.
Here's hoping 2013 brings a lot of great new things and only a few bad ones. Given that Kate Middleton had such a difficult time with morning sickness, here's hoping she gets the easy birth she deserves. Here's also hoping that all trips down the aisles result in long and happy marriages.
