2014 in celebrities: the year of the hack

2014 has proven to be another bizarre year in celebrity culture. 

Celebrity journalist Sam Dowler runs us through the biggest celebrity news of the year, describing 2014 as "the year of the hack".

Sam gives us his top five celebrity moments of the years: 

5. The nude celebrity leaks 
Crudely dubbed "The Fappening", the internet went into meltdown after hundreds of celebrities had their nude photographs leaked. Jennifer Lawrence's response was widely praised. She told the hackers "You should cower in shame."  

4. Kim Kardashian "breaks the internet"
...well, attempted to. Her front cover for Paper magazine caused a splash in what Sam calls "the year of the bass". 

3. Robin Williams commits suicide
Tragic news came in August as Robin Williams sadly committed suicide. 

2. Bieber had another bizarre year
Nothing in particular defined this year for Justin Bieber but he was, says Sam, "a very silly boy" almost constantly. 

1. Jay-Z gets attacked by Solange Knowles
Solange Knowles attacked Jay-Z while Beyonce watched on impassively. It was the only hit Solange had all year.
