This year was the year of many new celebrity relationships. But 2017 is also the time when we witnessed many devastating breakups. Although we don’t want to admit the power of social media in making us hooked on celebrity couples, it sure does exist. No one likes to see their favorite singers break up a long relationship after swooning over their super-cute photos. Aside from relationship splits, we also witnessed several devastating divorces. Not a single person thought that Fergie and Josh Duhamel would ever separate. In this short video, Vogue presents the 21 celebrity breakups of 2017. Starting from Anna Faris and Chris Pratt, to Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen, try to hold back your tears.
Selena Gomez and The Weeknd are probably the most talked-about couple of 2017. When fans first sensed the hints of a new celebrity relationship, every single online platform reported about it. It happened very shortly after Abel broke up with his supermodel ex-bae Bella Hadid. Only two months after their split, the Starboy was already connected with another A-lister. And it wasn’t just any celebrity, but the queen of Instagram- Selena Gomez.
When the first pictures from the couple emerged in January this year millions of fans were psyched about the great news. During their ten-month relationship, Gomez and The Weeknd traveled on romantic dates in Italy, Canada, Brazil and people just couldn’t get enough. The two made an official red carpet debut at the 2017 Met Gala in May. Unfortunately, in October the duo split after almost a year of dating.
Another huge breakup that no one can get over is the one between Amber Heard and Elon Musk. The two reportedly dated for one year, before calling it quits in August. Amber was married to Johnny Deep and their relationship ended on bad terms. Her divorce was finalized in January this year. Musk also has one failed marriage with actress Talulah Riley.
The couple started dating sometime in 2016. The first rumors of a breakup emerged in early August, but only days after that the duo was spotted together again. Just when fans got their hopes up, Amber and Elon released an official statement. Due to their busy schedules, the couple couldn’t continue their relationship. Musk recently opened up in an emotional interview, saying that the split left him broken-hearted. Since then, the ex-lovers were seen at a friendly breakfast. Our hopes are up for another celebrity reconciliation.
The Weeknd and Puma announced the official release of their second collaboration. The singer, his brand XO and the sportswear company launched the debut line in August. They took the collaboration to a new level with their second drop.
The Weeknd stayed faithful to his pop icon style. All of the items he created are pieces that he would wear in everyday life. The “Deluxe Denim’ line is the answer to all of your denim dreams. Every single item is simple but chic. As you can probably guess, it is all about the most versatile fabric– denim.
A standout in the line is the oversized distressed denim jacket, seen both on the female models, and on The Weekend. The frayed jacket featured chic black collars. In the lookbook photos, The Weeknd matched it with a pair of jeans with frayed details. The second drop of the collaboration also includes T-shirts, hoodies, denim kimono, tank tops. Every single item features the Puma XO logo.
As an addition to the “Deluxe Denim’ collection, there is also a pair of sneakers. Puma and XO are releasing the upgraded version of “The Parallel’ sneakers. This time the boot-sneaker is a striking olive-green color. It matches great with all of the denim products.
Another big surprise is that their collaboration is expanding into accessories. According to the pictures, fans will be able to purchase a denim hat with the signature XO letters printed on the front. The second addition is a denim bag with black handles and the XO Puma logo.
The Weeknd is an already proven fashion mogul. He is the perfect example that people can multi-task and knows all the right ways to incorporate fashion in his music. All of his releases are sold out within days. Puma is one of the most popular sportswear brands in the world. The brand managed to tap two of the biggest artists in the moment, Rihanna, and The Weeknd.
The collection is expected to launch on October 26. It will be available online at puma.com. Also, you’ll be able to purchase all of the items in Puma’s stores and other selected retailers.
