We know you're ready to ring in the new year, and we're right there with you! That said, we figured you'd enjoy stepping back with us for one final look back at the year that was 2010 as we give you the top ten most popular stories of the year here on VIP Breakdown. Interestingly enough, Justin Bieber made the cut, but he was relegated to the #10 spot (unless you give him credit for the story about Tom Brady getting a Bieber haircut that nabbed #3.) Number one was the story about Gary Coleman's parents being left with more questions than answers as it pertains to the late star's death. Speaking of death, the list also includes the death of Dixie Carter, and two stories about celebrity tattoos. Hit the jump for the full list, and have a safe new year!
Kara DioGuardi may have been hesitant about sporting a bikini on last year’s American Idol finale, but she’s come a long way since then.
For the upcoming issue of Allure, the American Idol judge lets her guard completely down and takes her clothes completely off. Kara is just one of several female celebrities - including actress Jessica Capshaw and singer Colbie Caillat - to strip down for the magazine’s annual “nude” event.
“This shoot was less about beauty than about taking a risk and showing people a side of me they never have seen,” DioGuardi said about her decision to participate.
You can see a few more pics after the jump and on the magazine’s website.

Even though it was believed the 27-year-old might soon reveal that answer to Rolling Stone magazine, someone else may have already done the work for him. On today’s episode of The View, judge Kara DioGuardi said Lambert’s sexuality has never been a mystery.
“I don’t think that Adam was ever in [the closet]. You know, I think he was always openly out.” Kara told the co-hosts. When Barbara Walters questioned that statement, Kara added: “From what I’ve seen on the various forms of things, I do. I never thought he wasn’t.”
