“Celebrities — they’re just like us!” That’s a popular section in most tabloid magazines, because it helps us regular folk remember that celebrities are really just regular folk, too — they go grocery shopping, they eat ice cream, they wear sweatpants!

It was hard to imagine I would ever walk down the aisle again. It was like a death in the family: You go through the mourning stage, then the rebellion, and then all of a sudden you have to find life by yourself. Once you do that, you feel complete — and that’s the only time you can truly fall in love again, and give yourself over completely to another person. — Jessica Simpson
There are many stages of grief. It’s sad, something coming to an end. It cracks you open, in a way — cracks you open to feeling. When you try to avoid the pain, it creates greater pain. I’m a human being, having a human experience in front of the world. I wish it weren’t in front of the world. I try really hard to rise above it. — Jennifer Aniston
There are two quotes that I want to say. One is a Dylan Thomas poem ‘Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light,’ which is one of my favorite poems, it just strikes a chord in me. And also Robert Frost’s ‘The only way out is through’. People have to go through things in order to become the person that they are today, and that’s that. — Sarah Hyland
I was so scared of ever being alone, and I think, conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had, this entire year. I don’t ever want to have to need someone again, where you feel like, without them, you can’t be yourself. — Miley Cyrus
Once you’re back on your feet — if you ever make it back on your feet — that’s the ultimate achievement. I remember I was in New York at the Trump Hotel and I woke up and I just knew I was over it. It was a different day. I felt different. I didn’t feel lonely. I felt like I wanted to get up and be in the world. That was a great, great feeling. — Rihanna
I think I’ll always be a hopeless romantic. I believe in love and the dream of having a perfect relationship, but my idea of it has changed. I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that. I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic. — Kim Kardashian
“I don’t need the Prince Charming to have my own happy ending.” —
“You have to know that as long as you love who you are, your morals, your values, that type of stuff — you’re OK.” — Nicki Minaj
“I’m a human being and I fall in love and sometimes I don’t have control over every situation.” — Beyonce
I had a boyfriend who told me I’d never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I’d fail. I said to him, ‘Someday, when we’re not together, you won’t be able to order a cup of coffee at the fucking deli without hearing or seeing me.’ — Lady Gaga
