Attitude 2016

2016 HAS BEEN FULL OF MOMENTOUS MOMENTS, BUT WHO NEEDS A WORKING KNOWLEDGE OF WORLD EVENTS WHEN YOU CAN FOCUS ON IMPORTANT SUBJECTS, SUCH AS WHO TAYLOR SWIFT FELL OUT WITH? NOT US, THAT’S FOR SURE. HERE’S OUR REVIEW OF THE YEAR IN OUR SPECIALIST SUBJECT: SHALLOW CELEBRITY GOSSIP. ENJOY

THE YEAR IN REVIEW

IT WAS A YEAR TO REMEMBER: IN SEISMIC POLITICAL SHOCKS, DONALD TRUMP WON THE US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, AND THE UK VOTED TO LEAVE THE EU. THERE WAS TRAGEDY AS 49 WERE MASSACRED IN A GAY CLUB IN ORLANDO IN THE WORST TERROR ATTACK ON THE US SINCE 9/11. WE ALSO LOST ICONIC STARS WHO OVERTURNED OUR PERCEPTIONS OF GENDER, INCLUDING DAVID BOWIE AND PRINCE. 2016 WAS A YEAR OF UPHEAVAL, CHANGE AND TRAGEDY

The fans are devastated, but Mr Malik then proceeds to take over the world, releasing a string of hits, a collection for Versace, and hooking up with supermodel Gigi Hadid.

ATTITUDE’S ALBUMS OF THE YEAR

DAVID BOWIE, BLACKSTAR

Released just two days before his heartbreaking passing, David Bowie’s 25th and final studio album is atmospheric and cinematic.
