The biggest embarrassments of 2012, according to Spin

Congratulations, now-defunct makers of the projection of Tupac Shakur that performed with Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg at Coachella: You pulled off the most ridiculously "kitschy" stunt of the year and turned the word "hologram" into a hollow punch line.

This year Yeezy pushed this Kim Kardashian situation to the point of making us physically gag and turn away. There was the public canoodling. The lovey-dovey tweeting. And then, "I wrote the song 'Perfect Bitch' about Kim." It's enough to make you long for the days when the object of West's affections was a sweet credenza.

Got herself sued because of Twitter, again. Accused Dave Grohl of creeping on Frances Bean. Bugged out about the Muppets singing Nirvana via a local blog. Spearheaded yet another Kurt Cobain documentary. Was "not amused" by Sirvana. And a bonus tidbit from a 2009 deposition, when she was found unfit to own pets.

The aply named Fiasco clumsily offered his (unsolicited) assistance to womankind with "Bitch Bad," dug himself a deeper hole by mansplaining the situation in its trite video, and topped it all off by trying to lead a Twitter rebellion against this very publication because we actually bothered to analyze his work. #BoycottSpinMagazine? We were amused.

Unseemly contemporary totem of douchebaggery and occassional pop singer Chris Brown set the shame standard for 2012. He dressed like a terrorist for Halloween, got a tattoo that digustingly recalls the police photograph of Rihanna's battered face, deleted his Twitter after firing a series of obscenely sexist tweets at comedian Jenny Johnson, and essentially flashed a big middle finger at anyone with a conscience. The only thing more shameful was the Team Breezy support squad who got behind this toxic, clueless speciman.

I'd forgotten that happened. It deserves at least an honorable mention.
