Movieline writer and occasional Chelsea Lately guest Louis Virtel brings a much-needed dose of "faggot realness" to the awful year in entertainment with his Verbal Vogueing web series.

Virtel explains: "2011 was a year of protest. So I'm going to do my part by occupying this high horse and telling you why this year in entertainment was so awful."

Topics covered: the best part about the Black Eyed Peas' Super Bowl costumes, how JLo hides her anorexia, future lovers of Madonna and how LiLo's antics paved the way for Adele.
