EVERYONE thinks about who “wins” a breakup! We love measuring the ups and downs of split couples like Justin and Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift & Harry Styles, and we know you do too. Keep reading for a breakdown of which celebs are doing better than their counterparts since breaking up!
Celebrities are like us in many ways. Like us, they definitely keep track of how their exes are doing after breakups. There’s always a winner in celebrity breakups — all you have to do is look at a couple like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez!
Justin Bieber Vs. Selena Gomez: We Know Who’s Doing Better
Justin and Selena have gone in opposite directions since breaking up. Justin has grown infamous for constantly removing his shirt and getting himself into trouble, like the assault charge he faces for allegedly spitting on a neighbor. Selena on the other hand, has only grown more famous, earning praise for starring in the risky, sexy film Spring Breakers and reviving her music career with the poppy “Come & Get It.” We’re ready to call this one — Selena is doing WAY better.
Taylor Swift Vs. Harry Styles & Others: Breakups Too Close To Call
There are closer battles of the exes though. For example, Taylor Swift and Harry Styles is a tough one. You could look at Taylor’s many post-breakup disses and say that they’re evidence that she’s doing better. OR, you could consider Harry’s total nonchalance and his desire to completely forget about Taylor as a sign that he’s handling the split better. We’re in the latter camp here — Harry’s still on top.
But then there are those couples who are both doing well after breaking up. Chris Brown obviously hit the jackpot by moving on from Karrueche Tran to former flame Rihanna, but KT hasn’t been doing too shabby herself. Since their split, Chris and KT have been cordial and friendly and honestly, we don’t even think they’re competing (boring!).
Katy Perry Vs. John Mayer & More: The Newer Celebrity Splits
There are newer breakups too, that we have to let marinate before we can pass judgment on who’s doing better. Julianne Hough has looked amazing since splitting from Ryan Seacrest, but hey, he’s Ryan Seacrest — he’s never not doing well. And as of now, Katy Perry and John Mayer look like they will both go on to flourish apart from one another.
Call us cynical, but we love the intriguing aftermath of a good breakup. Click through all the matchups and sound off below — which celebs do you think are doing better after their respective breakups?
