Currently Caitlin: summer blues

By: Caitlin Moynihan, Columnist

Welcome back, Tigers! Whether you’re just starting or it’s the beginning of the end of your time here at Towson, I have a feeling that this semester is going to be the best one yet.

I am so happy to be starting my second semester writing Currently Caitlin and giving all my fellow students the 4-1-1 on everything they need to know about the entertainment world.

From major movie announcements to dishing about how celebrities lives are significantly cooler than mine, this will be the place to be!

As for me, I am a junior mass communications major who has a passion for internships, peanut butter, boy bands and, of course, entertainment.

I want to use this first issue to discuss how this past summer has made me officially give up on love.
The amount of break-ups, divorces and separations that have happened these past few months is astounding and honestly, I don’t think my heart can take any more disappointment. If these beautiful, successful and seemingly perfect celebrities can’t keep their lovers, then how is there any hope for a mere mortal like me?
There has been a staggering 12 celeb couples that have called it quits, and some of the biggest breakups include Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck (RIP Bennifer), Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, Nick Jonas and Olivia Culpo, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert and the one that hurt the most; Kermit and Miss Piggy.
The only positive is that Nick Jonas is single so he is free to fall in love with me now.

Although all of these breakups hurt my heart in a different way, it was interesting to see how the summer of lost love had such a big impact in pop culture.

The more couples that announced a divorce, the more investigative the world became.
All couples were put under the microscope and were questioned as to whether they would last; it was clear that no one was immune to the heartbreak.

I know that I can’t be the only one hoping that Miss Piggy and Kermit only called it quits to boost the ratings for The Muppets when it airs on September 22nd, because the news of their breakup was too sad to be real.

The one thing that we can all take away from this summer of lost love is that celebrities are only human after all, and they may not be as perfect as they lead the world to believe.
My only hope is that after this horrible season of love, there will be good fortune in the future.
