Going through a break up? Go from miserable to Miss Independent in 5 easy steps

America’s most famous pop star flees the spotlight to recover from her latest break-up in Maine – only to fall for a local boy and be faced with an impossible choice at the end of the summer: her new guy, or her music.

i don't know what to do

We don’t all have the luxury of running off to spend a summer in Maine to heal our broken hearts. For us mere mortals, these are more like the 5 steps of heartbreak.

1. Sobbing. Uncontrollable sobbing.

We’ve all been there. Just let it out, girl. We’ve got tissues, chocolate and you’re fave PJs ready and waiting.

2. Complete and utter denial.


It was a mistake. A blip. Just a fight. We’ll fix it. We’re in love – it’s meant to be.

3. *permanently singing sad songs into your hairbrush*

all by myself

You’ve gotta get it out of your system and why not do it in *ahem* style? Maybe don’t take too much advice from Bridget Jones though…

4. Raging anger and indignation.

i hate you

Anger is fine. Anger is good. Anger means you’re not crying at least! Right?

5. Celebrating the single life!
