In case you somehow missed the approximately 20 bajillion jokes on social media, 2016 was a rough year.
We lost far too many beloved entertainers; famous celebrity couples dropped like flies, and the American people decided to give the nuke codes to a Flamin' Hot Cheeto with a rage-tweeting problem.
Anyway, 2017 has gotta be better, right?
Well, maybe not according to the world's leading psychics.
Here's what the best-known crystal ball-gazers have to say about the year to come:
1. R.I.P. Queen Elizabeth II, Long Live King Charles!
2. Oprah Goes Blonde
3. Trump Gets Impeached
4. Hillary Clinton: Not Finished Yet!
5. Jimmy Kimmel Might Want to Invest in a Hat
6. Pam Anderson's Love of Animals Will Come Back to Bite Her
Domestic abuse can happen to anyone. The celebs below suffered domestic violence at the hands of someone close to them.

Former Who's the Boss star Danny Pintauro made a stunning, sad announcement during an interview with Oprah Winfrey on Saturday night:
He is HIV positive.
The actor, who portrayed Jonathan on the family sitcom for eight years, opened the Q&A by coming right out with this troubling piece of information.
"I wanted to tell you this a long time ago, but I wasn't ready. I'm ready now," Pintauro said. "I'm HIV-positive, and I have been for 12 years."
In the above clip, Pintauro (who also came out as gay in 1997) talks about the dangers of crystal meth, drug he was addicted to for many years.
Pintauro explained that he underwent testing once every six months... and was then told the devastating news in March of 2003.
"I was living in New York at the time and completely clueless to the idea that I was positive. I went in for a regular checkup," Pintauro says.
"It was just regular blood work. You go in, and you sort of waited two weeks on pins and needles -- or at least I did, because I was just terrified of the idea of getting HIV."
The actor went on to explain how “crystal meth takes away your inhibitions” and that he thought he was “being safe” during the sexual encounter that changed his life.
Today, Pintauro lives with his husband in Las Vegas and works as a restaurant manager.
"What I want my community to realize is we need to take better care of ourselves," he says.
And you get body shamed! And you get body shamed! And YOU get body shamed!
We honestly would never have thought Oprah Winfrey would ever criticize anyone for the way they look, because she's, you know, OPRAH.
We're talking about the same woman who gave hundreds of people a new car for literally no reason.
But in one issue of O, The Oprah Magazine, readers picked up on a rather disturbing piece of fashion advice regarding everyone's favorite trend, the crop top.
When asked about the ability to pull off a crop top, the publication's creative director Adam Glassman answered the Q&A with THIS ridiculous response:
"If (and only if) you have a flat stomach, feel free to try one."
Um, excuse us?! Is this not 2015? Are we not in an age of acceptance? Are we not a culture currently hell-bent on shutting down body shamers?
Then why the heck does Adam Glassman think it is okay to tell women they can only pair a crop top with six-pack abs?
Well, writer Tamar Anitai had the same questions, and took to Instagram to rant about the magazine director's controversial comment. She posted a pic of the Q&A, captioning it with this empowering message:
"Surprised to see this level of #bodyshaming (👎🏻) in Oprah magazine. The feature is about women feeling healthy. Part of health is self-esteem and that's intrinsically connected to body image. Stop telling women what they CAN'T wear. We can wear and do and be ANYTHING that makes us feel strong, powerful, passionate and in charge of our own destinies. I hope young women and women of any age don't feel like they're restricted by editorially imposed fashion 'rules.' The only rules are there are no rules. Wear what you love, what makes you feel confident, and own it. Confidence is power, and it's contagious. 👊🏽👊🏾👊🏿👊🏻👊🏼👊"
But the backlash didn't stop there.
Tamar tagged fashion blogger Sarah Conley in the photo, who immediately took to Twitter to call out the author who offered up the offensive advice:
And then she decided to start an entire movement -- whipping up the hashtag #RockTheCrop -- encouraging women of all shapes and sizes to post pics of themselves wearing a trendy top, whether they have defined abdominal muscles or not, tweeting:
The blogger got an overwhelming response on social media, and pictures started pouring in of all sorts of women donning crop tops.
Plus-sized model Tess Holliday, who famously started #EffYourBeautyStandards, joined in, snapping this skinspirational shot:
Sarah also got a response from Adam, himself, who didn't entirely seem to understand that the whole thing was in response to his wacky words:
O Magazine, however, DID get it, and issued a statement apologizing for the answer's angle, saying:
"We support, encourage and empower all women to look great, feel confident and live their best lives – in this case, we could have expressed it better. We appreciate the feedback and will be more mindful going forward."
We're so proud that Sarah and Tamar took it upon themselves to right this wrong and spread a message of body positivity across social media!
