CelebMix’s Top Articles Of 2017 Chosen By The Writers

Yesterday we started the brand new year, 2018; and, in the spirit of the celebration, we’ve decided to take a look back at the articles we have written in 2017. We’ve had some amazing opportunities, unforgettable experiences, and incredible exclusive interviews.

All of the CelebMix writers have worked so very hard to get content out for the site in any way, shape, or form. This certainly led to some outstanding work on the site which deserves praise in every way. So, we decided to ask our writers which articles, that they wrote themselves, is their favourite from 2017.

And, here are the results. Be prepared to read some amazingly written articles that blow our minds. All of our writers are exceptional, but it really shows when they take that one step further and write up a superb article; just like the ones below.

Movie Review: “Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle” – Article Written by Zoe Adams (CelebMix Writer)

“I’ve written a lot of different articles in 2017 but due to the personal meaning it has behind it, my favourite article of the last twelve months is definitely my, ‘Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle”, review. I was honoured to get press tickets to go and see it since it had most of my favourite actors in it and it was just so incredible to have it as my first (hopefully, of many) movie reviews for CelebMix. I put everything I had into this article and I stressed about it to no end, so I really hope all of you like it as much as I do.”

Halsey, Bisexuality, And The Importance Of hopeless fountain kingdom – Article Written by J Lauren (CelebMix Writer)

“When Halsey’s hopeless fountain kingdom was released, I was shocked to find two songs on her album that did not just revolve around a typical man and woman couple. As someone who identifies as bisexual, finding a mainstream artist who sings about dating both men and women is the ultimate gift. I know I am not the only one who feels this way, so writing this piece felt both essential and important.”

Steve Irwin’s Son Robert Irwin Goes On The Tonight Show- Completely Wins Everyone Over – Article Written by Azra (CelebMix Writer)

“I don’t know how many people are aware of this, but I’m actually a vet student. Steve Irwin was one of the very first people that showed me the beauty of wild animals, and he was definitely a big part of the reason why I’m studying what I’m studying. So seeing his son Robert with the same passion as his dad, it made me very emotional. It also made me more determined than ever to visit their zoo in Australia one day, to see the blood, sweat, and tears that went into this beautiful place that’s here today for no other reason but the love for animals.”

First Listen Review: Five Things You Can Expect From DNCE And Nicki Minaj’s ‘Kissing Strangers’ – Article Written by Katrina Rees (CelebMix Editor)

“I’ve been fortunate enough to do many insane things for CelebMix this year, from interviewing Demi Lovato, Alex Aiono and a whole load of YouTubers, to reviewing some of the year’s best albums. However, for my favourite article, I’m going to throw it back to one of my first major exclusives, when I had the chance to listen to and write about DNCE’s ‘Kissing Strangers’ before its release. This was the first time I had the opportunity to do something like this, and being a huge DNCE fan, I was over the moon about it (the song is a total banger too).”

All 43 Acts For The Eurovision Song Contest 2017 Facts And Stats – Article Written by Jonathan Currinn (CelebMix Editor)

“2017 has been an amazing year for CelebMix, we have gained so many exclusives and coverage, it’s been incredible, I have certainly written more than my fair share of articles for the site, and seeing so many of them be loved and shared online has been incredible; however, I believe that when it came to this particular event, my small Eurovision group and I, did a brilliant job of covering all the Eurovision 2017 news; so much so, that this article ended up being one of my favourites. I can’t take all the credit, as most are links to Eurovision 2017 stars and artists 101’s, but seeing the popularity of this article alone as Eurovision came around was certainly a proud moment for me. I’m so ready for Eurovision 2018, and completely prepared for another facts and stats article!”
