Controversies and their Originators: The Controversial 2011

If 2011 can be called a year of something, then it can either snugly fit in a category defined by tablets and I-pads or controversies. It has been an eventful year, be it in politics, filmdom or social circuits. There has been something happening since the year began and here’s a dope on who did what and how controversial the event was. One thing however, that essentially remains common is that there was an equal amount of scorn, amazement and news coverage each of these received from the media and amounted to a tremendous general interest that each of these personalities that they could make it to this list:

Veena Malik: Closer home, the Pakistani beauty who created waves with her raunchy self on the television in Big Boss set the media in a frenzy again and this time, while Indian media outlets has a field day reporting the event, cross border saw fatwas being rendered. Well, what did she do? She appeared nude on the cover of FMH magazine and then vehemently denied her association with the latter and then went into hiding. While the stint got her on the cover of a lesser known magazine and generated fatwas, she reaped in enough moolah that could keep her from working on the New Years eve!

Poonam Pandey: This cricket loving beauty shocked everyone and then left all high and dry when she disappeared after having sworn to go full monty on Indian world cup win. While televised, print and social media ridiculed and scorned her disappearance after making a unpleasant publicity stunt, not only were they fueling the controversy created by her but also were satisfying her intent of making it into the headlines. For now, Poonam is forgotten but not until she fills this spot on our list.

Julian Assange: On a more serious note, the controversial personalities also includes Assange whose wikileaks fiasco earlier created a lot for him lots of powerful enemies who could take him like a tick. Fueling this controversy was his inability to be extradited from UK in a legal battle which accused him of sexual assault. His battle was for all to see and yet the public opinion was in his favor simply because he had exposed the most sensitive information that can ever be.

The rest of the lot in this bunch of controversial people included Arnold Schwarzenegger who got estranged from his wife after being exposed of sexual activity with a colleague, Lady Gaga for her pop star antics and her alleged gender dubiousness, High profile Strauss-Kahn who disappointed his admirers and left the International Monetary Fund in a lurch after his sex scandal and last but not the least, Playboy Hefner who was surprisingly left at the altar after his 20 something to-be wife had a change of opinion regarding Hefner’s ability to be her husband.
