Each year, New Times puts together a list of the sketchiest politicians and unholiest celebrities and weirdest human beings to call the Magic City home.

So who made the filthy cut this year? We're releasing the names one by one ahead of next week's issue, which comes with a full-page illustration of the dynamic dozen.
First up is a Miami pop star whose big television debut was marred by a sex-tape lawsuit.
