7 Things We're Thankful for in the Entertainment World

We take a break from the turkey and give thanks for Miley, Kanye and more!

Before we know it, 2013 will be over. But right now, we get a moment to pause and give thanks for everything this year has brought us. This Thanksgiving, we're celebrating this year's many entertaining moments in celebrity culture, from Miley Cyrus's twerking to Jennifer Lawrence's red carpet antics. Here are 7 reasons to be thankful you have an Internet connection!

Lorde's No. 1 hit is a serious contender for Best Song of 2013 -- plus, the 17-year-old singer proved that teenage pop stars don't need to be assembled in a factory (Disney or otherwise).

The comic stylings of Kanye West
The rapper takes himself very seriously, but some of the year's most laugh-out-loud moments -- including this SNL sketch, the James Franco/Seth Rogen "Bound 2" remake, and Jimmy Kimmel's "rap feud" -- were inspired by Kanye. Keep on doing what you're doing, 'Ye! And maybe spend some more time tweeting.

Miley Cyrus' performance at the VMAs
Can you believe that August is usually a slow news month? Not this year, thanks to a certain twerking pop star.

Jennifer Lawrence on the red carpet
We're thankful for J-Law in general, but especially when she's dressed immaculately and acting like a complete goofball.

Orange is the New Black
The best show on TV this year wasn't even on TV -- it was on Netflix. It's a new world, folks!
