It's a bittersweet day for Directioners. Liam Payne and his longtime girlfriend Danielle Peazer have reportedly called it quits...again. If you remember, Liam and Danielle broke up back in September, but were able to rekindle their romance a few months later.
So what caused the split this time around? A source told The Sun that Liam's hectic schedule was making the relationship too hard to maintain.
"Liam's on tour until November and Danielle's very busy so they basically never see each other," the source said. "They have been trying for months to make it work but it just hasn't. They had a big chat last month and decided there wasn't any point in dragging it out."
This comes as a shock to many figuring the couple recently bought a dog together. What will the split mean for poor Loki?
Well, the good news is Liam and Danielle are still close friends according to his rep, so we're sure something will be worked out.
Do you think after three years of dating Liam and Danielle are done for good? Or will they get back together once One Direction is done touring in November?
Judging by this photo snapped of the couple in London just last month, spending time with Danielle made Liam really happy, so we're hoping for a reunion!
Taylor Swift's new song "Revenge" was leaked earlier this week, and then promptly removed from YouTube. Rumor has it that the track was inspired by her most recent ex, Harry Styles.
While it's unfortunate that Haylor didn't work out, at least we'll get a killer new song out of it. Because let's face it, if artists never went through horrible heartbreaks, most of the best tracks on your breakup playlist wouldn't exist.
Here are 10 of the very best songs inspired by bad breakups. Tell us what we're missing the comments!
1. Every song by Taylor Swift. Ever.
OK, that's a bit of an exaggeration -- but there are definitely more breakup songs by Taylor than we can count on two hands.
2. "Someone Like You" by Adele
Adele's entire album, 21, was inspired by her breakup with her former beau. Looks like Adele got the last laugh, since her album went straight to number one.
3. "Cry Me A River" by Justin Timberlake
Justin's breakup anthem came about after his split with pop superstar Britney Spears. Selena Gomez later used the song to her advantage, singing it at her UNICEF concert shortly after rumors of her split with Justin.
4. "Nothing Like Us" by Justin Bieber
Justin's song about Selena is one of our favorites. Even though it's sad, it's definitely one of his most heartfelt tunes.
5. "Mistake" by Demi Lovato
Even though Demi didn't write "Mistake," she said that she really connected with the lyrics after her breakup with Joe Jonas.
6. "Wide Awake" by Katy Perry
Katy wasn't going to keep her emotions bottled up inside of her after her divorce with Russell Brand. Instead, the singer used her song as an outlet the vent about her hurt feelings.
7. "So What" by Pink
When Pink split with motocross racer Carey Hart she took out her anger in heartbreak in her music, creating one epic breakup song.
8. "7 Things I Hate About You" by Miley Cyrus
When Miley and Nick Jonas split, the Hannah Montana star took the breakup really hard. Though she wasn't shy about telling the public who the song was about. Miley even wore the necklace Nick gave her in the music video for the single.
9. "Much Better" by The Jonas Brothers
Joe Jonas made a dig at Taylor Swift in his song "Much Better" after their breakup singing, "And all the tears on her guitar/ I'm not bitter/ But now I see/ Everything I'd ever need/ Is the girl in front of me/She's much better."
10. "Beggin' on Your Knees" by Victoria Justice
OK, so this one didn't happen in real life. Victorious' Tori wrote this song with Andre after learning that Ryder was just using her to get better grades. But the lyrics about getting revenge on a cheating boyfriend makes it the perfect breakup anthem!
Selena Gomez kicked off her UNICEF concert at the Best Buy Theater in New York City last night by saying it was her first time performing in more than a year -- but J-14 Magazine was there front and center and watched her take the stage like a pro. Not only did she rock out to her trademark songs like "Round and Round" and "Love You Like a Love Song," but she used her comeback concert to sing some carefully selected cover songs... perhaps hinting at her emotional breakup with almost two-year on- and off-again boyfriend Justin Bieber.
"I'm excited for you guys to have this next year with me and hear everything and see everything that I've been going through," Selena told the sold-out crowd that included movie star Ben Stiller.
Selena introduced one of the covers by saying, "It's by my best friend in the entire world and if anybody has felt anything painful to their heart, they know who this girl is. Sing along if you know it." And she burst into a heartfelt rendition of Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble," that she ended with a sly little giggle.
She then got even sassier and fiester by telling the audience that the last couple of months have been difficult for her and that she'd been "sad" before diving into Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me A River" with more passion than we'd ever seen her sing with before. Not only did she avoid saying the word "Justin" by introducing it as an "*NSYNC J.T." song, but she ended it with she same sly little giggle she did Taylor Swift's song.
Selena followed up her boy trouble cover songs with Britney Spears' "...Baby One More Time."
Watch Selena Gomez's sneaky little giggle at the end of both "I Knew You Were Trouble" and "Cry Me A River."
Stay tuned to J-14 Magazine for more videos and photos from the big concert last night.
According to several reports, pop star power couple Harry Styles and Taylor Swift have called it quits!
"They are both really busy and never in one place for long. Harry's really upset about the split and is really sensitive about it," the source says. "Loads of his friends told him to be careful and that it was never going to last, and he feels a little foolish now that it's fallen apart so quickly."
The pair were last spotted on vacation in the British Virgin Islands where they posed for photos with fans at a local restaurant. However, Taylor reportedly headed home from the vacation early on January 4 following a huge fight. Harry was then spotted on the nearby Necker Island spending time with friends, before landing solo at London's Heathrow Airport on January 7.
What do you think? Do you think Harry and Taylor have ended things?

After nearly two years of dating, sources confirm that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have ended their relationship. "Selena broke up with Justin about a week ago. It's been a really challenging experience over the last year because of their crazy schedules," a source says. "Selena definitely had some major trust issues with Justin."
There were signs of trouble in recent weeks, starting with Justin posting an Instagram selfie with an anagramed caption for "single" that he quickly deleted. Then, rumors flew of Justin "flirting" and "exchanging numbers" with models after his performance at the Victoria's Secret fashion show on Wednesday, November 7.
He was even spotted on a date to Broadway's 'The Lion King' with model Barbara Palvin on Thursday night. Still, Barbara, a 19-year-old Hungarian model, says she has a boyfriend and Tweeted to fans, "Please calm down! [Justin] is all yours!"

Selena, seemingly displeased with Justin's behavior lately, retweeted a pic of him with a model standing behind him and added the caption "...."
Despite calling it quits, there's always the chance Justin and Selena could reconcile as they've done in the past. "They are [young]. It changes from day to day. Right now it is a break and tomorrow it could be back on knowing them... it's hard to say how they will end up," a source says. "Maybe she feels more serious about it this time. We'll see."
How do you feel about Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez's breakup? Who do you think they should date next? Or should they get back together?

Reports are flying that Joe Jonas and Ashley Greene have officially called it quits due to "scheduling" conflicts.
The power couple started dating last July and Joe recently raved about Ashley in an interview saying, "I think what works about it is she really puts my feelings first. She understands my busy schedule. She'll fly out to my shows -- she's been to places in South America that I can't even pronounce."
After dating for five years, the High School Musical costars went their separate ways last December. "We grew up together," Vanessa says. "It was a good thing. The relationship kept me grounded, and because I was with someone who knew me so well, I didn't need to try to be someone I'm not."
Since the split, Vanessa has been spotted out dancing with her Journey 2: The Mysterious Island costar Josh Hutcherson and at a basketball game with Bandslam costar Gaelan Connell. Still, she says she's single and currently "taking numbers."
Do you think Zac and Vanessa should get back together? Would you ever be in a long-distance relationship?
