People are either really upset or really happy to hear the news that Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp are probably splitting up.
For romantics, the dissolution of such a long-standing relationship, between dreamy, tabloid-averse Johnny and the extremely chic model and singer Vanessa, is sure to come as a dissapointment. If their love's not true, then is love even real?
But opportunists might be pleased to hear that both desirables are back on the market. Johnny Depp is the go-to celeb crush for every bookish or vaguely alternative girl (or gay guy) that's ever been to high school, and however slim the chance might be, the actor's brand-new single status has been a long time coming.
I'm probably not alone in this, but hearing the news this morning was a little tiny pick-me-up, a burst of giddy hope for my inner teenager.
Before any of us get too excited, let's be clear on one thing: like practically everything in TabloidLand, this hasn't been confirmed.
And on another note, maybe it's time for our teenage selves to develop better taste in men. Johnny Depp is Johnny Depp, but he's seen better days. This picture was taken just before his Letterman appearance in October, and I think we can all agree that he looks kind of like a creepy putz? I'd beg him to ditch fedoras, the tinted aviators, and the ugly brown vest/collared shirt combos if he wants to have any luck in the dating game. Just a friendly piece of advice. Change for us, Johnny! Get it together.
