2018 has been a whirlwind year. Between the Tide Pod challenge sweeping the nation and IHOP terrorizing us by trying to sell burgers (still not over that), we've had a confusing year to say the least. Thankfully, during the last fateful week of the year, we are finally getting some good news that makes it all (mostly) worth while.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth finally got married.
I've always been a pretty big fan of Miley Cyrus. Not specifically of her music or her questionable lifestyle choices over the years, but of her as a person. From playing Hannah Montana to navigating the world post-Disney Channel through her "Dead Pets" phase, I always had high hopes that she would eventually get her sh*t together and come out on the other side better than ever.
Almost 10 years ago, Miley met Australian pretty boy Liam Hemsworth on the set of "The Last Song," a film adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name. They were on-again-off-again through 2013, until Miley pulled a Britney, chopped all of her hair off and dirty danced with Robin Thicke at the VMAs. They broke up, not to get back together again until the end of 2015. Now, after all this time, the couple has finally tied the knot!
To say I'm happy for them would be the understatement of the century. Of all the couples in Hollywood, I'd say that not only will this relationship last, but they really truly love each other. I mean, just look at the time they spent apart a few years ago. Liam understood that Miley needed to let her freak flag fly for a little while, and he let her do that. And waited for her. And now they are together and happier than ever. I LOVE LOVE.
Nicholas Sparks agrees -- and might take a bit of credit for the entire thing? TBH, I would.
Kanye West smiled on Christmas.
OK maybe this isn't really news, but considering the seemingly psychotic break the rapper has been going through as of late, it's a big deal. I mean....he actually SMILED. With his TEETH.
Have you ever seen him look this happy????
I'm happy for the Kardashian-West clan. They're just out here being extra and showing off their money like any other filthy rich family would. It's a far cry from this, at least:
And that's it. That's all the good news we have left for 2018. Bring on the new year.
