Best of 2005 | Blender Magazine

Blender‘s "Buh-Bye 2005" issue just hit the stands. Woman of the Year is Kelly Clarkson. There is no Man of the Year or Band of the Year. Just Kelly. I think it was having her name yelled out during the chest-waxing scene in The 40-Year-Old Virgin that put her over the edge. The readers poll picked Coldplay‘s X&Y as Album of the Year (barely edging out Mariah Carey‘s The Emancipation of Mimi) and Kelly Clarkson’s "Since U Been Gone" as Song of the Year.
