Here are 25 female celebrities who did a 180 after calling it quits with their special someone.
What better way to cope with an ugly split than to do a complete 180? Especially when that breakup plays out for millions of fans to see, comment on, and judge. It’s no surprise the pressure that comes along with Hollywood stardom has caused some of our favorite celebrity ladies to do a complete turnaround after a breakup. Whether it was switching up their hair color, or embracing a complete attitude change, we have to admit it was refreshing to see them have very humane and, well, normal responses to a public breakup, despite being in the public eye constantly. It’s almost like a silent and unspoken moment of unity when a celebrity female does something drastic after a breakup.
The level of girl power can increase, as ladies around the nation and world cheer them on as they embark on a new life of being single. Even though many of the ladies moved on shortly after their breakups, it’s safe to say their 180 transformation came long before they found a new guy to fill the former flame’s space. We might even venture to say it was a change that was a long time coming and might have happened whether or not the female lead and her beau decided to work things out for good. Either way, we’re glad to have a front row seat to all of the changes that comes along with major life moments – even the tragic ones like a heartbreaking split. Take a look at 25 female celebrities who did a 180 after calling it quits with their special someone.
25. MILEY CYRUS
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth might be back together, but we would be remiss if we didn’t mention her 180 after their 2013 breakup.
Cyrus did more than let loose after she and Hemsworth decided to end their engagement roughly five years ago. She cut off all of her hair but also became a celebrity that stars and fans didn’t really care for.
She switched up her sound from pop to Bangerz and started twerking like her life depended on it. She was certainly no Hannah Montana anymore. She would rock the red carpet in some eyebrow-raising getups, and let’s not forget about the crazy performance she had with Robin Thicke at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. She rubbed up on the then-married singer as if millions weren’t watching. Still, Cyrus has toned it down quite a bit and interestingly enough, managed to get Hemsworth back. Now, they are happy together, living together, and reportedly planning a wedding. It’s also safe to say she has toned down her look big time and has managed to find a healthy balance between her 2013 days and her Hannah Montana look. Let’s be honest, we all expected Cyrus to grow up at some point. Thankfully, she’s been able to find herself after all.
24. DEMI LOVATO
While we’re still praying, there’s a chance for Demi Lovato and Wilmer Valderrama to get back together, Lovato went ahead and did a 180 without giving us a moment’s notice. While she was clearly a bit younger than Valderrama, it’s safe to say Lovato was still channeling her inner Disney star during the stronger days of her relationship. Unfortunately for him, it wasn’t until after their split that Lovato started to look like the young woman she really is.
Her short haircut and choice of going from brown to black hair also played a major part in her transformation that is on the road to being iconic.
Still, the idea that they had nothing but good things to say about one another even after their breakup shows Lovato is transforming in ways that we are certainly here for. Meanwhile, for fans wondering if they could ever get back together, it looks like there’s a glimmer of hope. The two were spotted out and about together earlier this year and sparked rumors of a reconciliation. Plus, if Lovato’s mother has anything to do it, they’ll get back together soon than later, as she said their split broke her heart. Yes, it did for all of us. But cheers to Lovato’s transformation afterward.
