Yesterday, news of Jolie's and Pitt's pending divorce turned our (celeb-obsessed) world upside down. Today, folks in real life (and of course on the Internet) are still reelin' from the demise of one of the most beloved—and longstanding— Hollywood couples.
Here are five things to know today about the break-up that has broken us all:
--Adele basically dedicated her concert in NYC last night to the former couple, addressing the crowd "Can we talk about the elephant in the room? That Brangelina broke up?" and referring to it as "the end of an era."
--Old gossip is made new again, as gossip outlets desperately try to milk this scandal for all its worth. An Instagram Selena Gomez posted in January of Pitt and her at a Golden Globes party has resurfaced. Apparently at the time, Jolie "blew a gasket" over it. The National Enquirer is wondering if Jolie's alleged jealousy of the baby-faced pop star may have had a hand in the divorce? (Uhhh, we doubt it.)
--Relationships are clearly not set in stone, but some, if you're famous enough, get set in wax! At Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in London, the wax figurines of Brad and Angelina have been officially split up. Connection, severed. Wow, we were not ready for that.
--Some people, who must have a lump of coal in place of a heart, have apparently moved on. Over at The Ringer, writers are already brainstorming who should replace Brangelina as the new top pop culture power couple. How dare they! Their potential contenders range from the obvious—Kimye and Beyonce and Jay-Z—to the hip on-and-off-screen lovers Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, to so-so couple Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes (read: too jealous of Mendes to exalt her), to rando oldie romancers Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell. Our favorite of their suggestions has to be Ben Affleck and Nicotine.
--Wino site VinePair is all, but who will get ownership of the Miraval Winery?! It's a relevant question for those who care about wine, considering one of the top sellers on the market, their Chateau Miraval Rose, gets produced at the couple's massive French estate. VinePair speculates it could go to Jolie, since she has French-Canadian nationality, but then again, Pitt is big into working on the vineyard at the estate (and, err, we've definitely heard he's a heavy drinker).
How are you processing on day two?
