It's official: From presidential campaign politics to a world gone "Gangnam Style," 2012 was the most dubious year yet.
Matthew Lillard's filmography runs the gamut, from playing a killer in the original "Scream" and the goofy Shaggy in the "Scooby-Doo" movies to showing a more dramatic side of his talent opposite George Clooney in "The Descendants" and Clint Eastwood in "Trouble With the Curve."
The Roots saved some of their love for Whitney Houston.
Their horrorcore hip-hop — pervaded by profanity and violent imagery — has been called degenerate, depraved and disgusting. Their fans, the Juggalos, are derided as a dangerous, clown-makeup-wearing cult. What could anyone say about Insane Clown Posse that's any worse? How about calling them Christians.
"When we started rapping, we were broke as could be. And we were pissed off about everything," he says. "But for the last 20 years, there's so much love around us from Juggalos that I can't walk around being salty about everything, and think this world sucks, or this country sucks. Because we don't feel that way anymore."
That, he says, makes the frequent criticism of the band less important than ever.
