5 Stars Speak on Mending a Broken Heart

Getting over a broken heart is never easy. These 5 celebrities have spoken on how they processed their hurt. Some took inspiration for their work from the pain and turned it in to something positive. Others just needed to let the pain out naturally or believe time is also a good healer.

Zoe Saldana

Zoe allows herself to move past it: “I feel it (heartache). I allow myself to feel it. Of course everyone around me will notice how it (a break-up) made me feel, but I tend to recover very easily. When I lose, when my heart is broken, when I lose a competition, when I don’t get something, when something doesn’t go my way or I have a heartbreak or whatever, maybe it’s just the kind of person that I am, or maybe I haven’t really fallen in love yet, had that crash boom bam in my life yet, but I tend to recover… healthy and smoothly. And I’ve been that way up until now. And if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

Jennifer Lopez

Jennifer found her divorce difficult: ”I was going through a divorce and the break-up of a family, which was devastating to me because family means everything to me. I didn’t want to be the woman who stayed in bed for months. I did do that a little but I knew I had to get through it.”

Taylor Swift

Taylor can be inspired by her heartbreak which helps her move on: ”There’s something so beautiful about people who are heartbroken; they think about how they’re feeling much more. I think when you’re happy and when you’re in love, you don’t need to think about it, it’s just there. Love is one of those things that is so simple, you don’t need to think about it when it’s good, you only need to think about it when it’s bad, so when music is all that you have and you’re lonely or you’re missing someone and you write a song that says exactly how you feel, there is sort of a gratification you get from that, it almost helps you move on.”

Lana Del Rey

Lana likes to honor her past memories: “Even though I can’t be with that person anymore, I still want to honour those memories. I felt like falling in love changed me, neurologically and the record is about being faithful in my mind to the memory of that particular person.”


Usher had to be a man and take the heartbreak: “This will be the only time that I’ve ever chosen to speak about it. I’ve been a man of integrity throughout the entire process, which I hope my boys will understand. That’s the way to go. That’s the way to be.”
