10 Celebrity Couples That Basically Ended Faster Than The 2019 Government Shutdown

10 Celebrity Couples That Basically Ended Faster Than The 2019 Government Shutdown

And they're never, ever, ever, ever getting back together...like ever.

10 Celebrity Couples That Basically Ended Faster Than The 2019 Government Shutdown

The shutdown has us, well, down.

As ridiculous as it is to have so many employees without pay and there being no compromise to end the stalemate, there are just as ridiculous things happening in your favorite celebrity idol's love life. There are countless celebrity couples, some very recent and others you definitely forgot about, that ended way faster than America's longest government shutdown ever.

While we all cross our fingers and hope for impeachment, here's a list of couples who impeached each other very early on in their relationship.

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson

While highly publicized and definitely doomed from the start, I think we all had hope for their relationship. Davidson proposed to Grande...pretty much the day they started dating. A "love at first sight" moment for him, obviously wasn't reciprocated on her end. A short, but not the shortest of the list, relationship from May-October this past year, the former couple, to this day, is still dropping shade. It'll probably continue until there are "no tears left to cry".

Taylor Swift and Harry Styles

This was Swift's fourth relationship to only last one month, preceded by Lucas Till (her "You Belong with Me" love interest and now MacGyver), rumored flame Corey Monteith, and a rumored relationship with Lorax costar Zac Efron. Do you see why I'm only really mentioning one? The December 2012 to January 2013 relationship garnered some rather harsh attention from Harry Styles fans, and it definitely let a mark on Swift since she supposedly has written four songs about him. Styles, supposedly only wrote two: "Perfect" and "Two Ghosts".

Noah Cyrus and Lil Xan

The couple started dating in June 2018 and inevitably ended in August that same year. While fake relationship gossip flew, the real ending point was Lil Xan feeling like he was being cheated on after Cyrus posted a photo of her and a co-collaborator Ookay. She even came out in an interview saying she confused at what happened, but wasn't afraid to say that she felt more like a "booty call" to the rapper.

Hailee Steinfeld and Niall Horan

The (rumored) February (but probably May) to December relationship between the two singers was short, but sweet. Most sources say it was "young love" and that the timing wasn't right. With Hailee promoting the new Bumblebee movie, it would definitely be hard to keep up with a relationship. Niall, while seeming to take a break post-tour, is undoubtedly writing new music in-between golf outings. While there was definite hope for these two, we were sadly let down...again. Hell, I never said reading this would be easy.

Harry Styles and Kendall Jenner

The couple started off in November 2013 and ultimately ended February 2014...only to date again briefly the following year from 2015-2016. There were rumors of a casual thing and other chatter said that Styles seemed to have cheated. From his track record, cheating doesn't seem to be in his usual deck of cards, but, you never know. Either way, they're long gone and far from one another's radars.

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries

The infamous short-lived romance between, reality TV star, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, New Jersey Nets player, only lasted 72 days. Still not the shortest on the list. The couple only dated 3 months publicly before getting engaged, were married by August the same year (2011), and filed for divorce 72 days later. Kardashian apparently knew by the honeymoon it wasn't going to work out, and Humphries came out saying she was cheating. No matter how you spin it, the relationship was a walking disaster.

Shawn Mendes and Hailey Baldwin

While it was only recently revealed by Mendes that they had been seeing each other officially, kind of, (someone was feeling a little blue after her engagement/marriage to Justin Bieber), they were only publicly together from the Met Gala in May 2018. July they were deemed "over" officially, if they even were. She then started hanging with, and eventually got hitched to Bieber. Mendes seemed to take it well, admitting that the couple was good for each other.

Jesse Williams and Minka Kelly

While the reason for their breakup is unknown, Williams and Kelly found themselves together for several months between 2017 and 2018. Shortly after William's divorce, they were spotted enjoying each other's company, but the fling was short lived as it ended last January.

Colton Haynes and Jeff Leatham

The couple was married in October 2017, but separated after 6 months of marriage. Haynes apparent filed for divorce and there were rumors of reconciliation afterwards. However, after celebrating their anniversary, Leatham filed his own papers towards Haynes, claiming irreconcilable differences (similar to Haynes' original filings). The divorce is currently moving forward.

Britney Spears and Jason Alexander

After her famous split from NYSNC* boybander Justin Timberlake, Spears found herself in the arms of an old childhood friend Jason Alexander. (No, not George Costanza from Seinfeld.) The couple was only married for 55 hours. Yep, that's right. 55 freakin' hours. She claims she was being rebellious, and Alexander claims he loved her and thought she felt the same. Anyways, they've been over since the early 2000's, so this is as stale as her relationship with K-Fed.

While there is consistent hope for the end of this shutdown, we can only have that same hope that people will stop making mistakes in relationships. But, let's be honest, we're only human and nobody is perfect. Sadly, the wait will continue and so will the famous battles of love and hate.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.
