By Isha Mayer  December 29th, 2020

Even though we didn’t spot our favourite celebrities out and about on the city streets this year, there’s a lot that they shared on their social media platforms even during the lockdown and kept us entertained. From big moments that shook us pre-COVID to stars finding ways to occupy themselves, here’s a roundup of all the celebrity moments from Bollywood and Hollywood that brought a smile to our faces.

1. Jennifer Lopez And Shakira’s Super Bowl Performance

We can never forget JLo and Shakira’s power-packed performance at the Super Bowl halftime. While Lopez performed on some of her major hit tracks like Waiting For Tonight, Jenny From The Block and On The Floor, the turning point was when she brought her daughter, Emme Maribel Muñiz on stage, who gave the song Born In The USA her own spin. Shakira too performed on her major hits like Waka Waka and Hips Don’t Lie.

If Bhumi Pednekar weren’t an actor, she would certainly be a top beauty blogger. Her makeup videos, which she experimented with in lockdown, were proof.

6. Priyanka Chopra Jonas And Brack Obama’s Memoirs

PeeCee unveiled the cover of her upcoming book Unfinished. The thoughtful and intimate memoir, which will be launched in January 2021, will take the readers through Priyanka’s childhood, the challenges she faced while navigating through her career in India, Hollywood and more. “Having been a public person now for 20 years, with so much life to live and a long list of things to check off my list personally and professionally, I am very much #Unfinished. BUT the funny thing about writing a memoir is that it forces you to look at things differently, reconciling so many things you thought you had put to bed,” she had shared on her Instagram.

Former US President Barack Obama released his intimate memoir titled A Promised Land. “The book is an honest accounting of my presidential campaign and my time in office, the key events and people who shaped it, my take on what I got right and the mistakes I made, and the political, economic, and cultural forces that my team and I had to confront then — and that as a nation we are grappling with still,” Obama had said in a statement.
