Celebrities: they’re a bit mental.
Love: it causes people to go kind of crazy.
When you combine both elements, you’re looking at some of the most over-the-top, bizarre and outlandish declarations this side of The Notebook.
A Swift End
When Taylor Swift fell head-over-heels for Conor Kennedy – a junior member of the esteemed Kennedy political family – she did what felt natural, buying a house down the road from his. A house worth about USD $18 million, that is. As far as gestures of love and commitment go, this has to be up there. Unfortunately for Swifty, her investment proved to yield few emotional dividends. She and Conor broke up before renovations on the place were done!
The property has continued to cause frustration for the singer: a stalker attempted to break in, and changes to the property have drawn the ire of the local neighbourhood.
Will You (Fake) Marry Me?
Jordin Sparks and Jason DeRulo: a dream couple for lovers of half-baked, C-grade pop music. In a case of art potentially anticipating life, Sparks played DeRulo’s fiance in the music video for his falsetto-laden hit ‘Marry Me’. We haven’t actually watched the clip, because Jason DeRulo kind of sucks, but we image it’s icky and cringe-inducing. It’s also probably that the filming process was somewhat awkward, right?
“Honey, image that I love you enough to propose!”
