2018 was a wild ride. From celebrity instigated social movements to shocking whirlwind weddings, we have loved every moment. We’ve put together a list of the most shocking celebrity moments that nearly broke the internet this year.
The Busy Year of Ariana Grande
In September 2018 Ariana Grande lost a friend and ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller. Mac is rumored to be the singer’s longest relationship, and she beautifully wrote a tribute to the late rapper on her Instagram saying, [Mac had] “the kindest, sweetest soul with demons he never deserved.” In October 2018, after five months of dating, Ariana and fiance/SNL cast member Pete Davidson called off their highly publicized and whirlwind engagement. No doubt the resilient 25-year-old singer’s heart has been put through the wringer enough for one year.
Woman of the year
After emerging from a brutal few months, Ariana Grande came out with the breakup anthem of the year, “thank u, next.” The star-studded music video features clips from 2000’s classics like Mean Girls and Legally Blonde, and star cameos from Kris Jenner and Lindsay Lohan. The internet went crazy for it, and Ariana earned praise from Gigi and Bella Hadid, Jennifer Garner, the Kardashians and more. As Billboard’s “Woman of the Year” recipient, Grande note, “I find it interesting that this has been one of the best years of my career and the worst of my life.” Ariana seems to have a positive outlook on life and with her career skyrocketing ahead, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for her next year.
