HERE ARE SOME TIPS FOR SURVIVING THIS PAINFUL TIME.
As if the fact that the snot from your nose freezing the second it touches this Polar Vortex-cursed air wasn't enough to make you SO SAD, The Wanted have broken up -- well, at least for the time being. Earlier today, Tom, Max, Siva, Jay, and Nathan announced that they're taking a hiatus after their upcoming tour, citing a collective decision to "take time to pursue personal endeavors."
Fine, maybe it's not a full-on "We are never ever ever getting back together"-style breakup since, per the boys' statement: "The band wants to stress to their fans that they will continue on as The Wanted and look forward to many successful projects together in the future." But, like, THAT'S KIND OF A BREAKUP, AMIRITE? At least for the time being.
Looking for ways to cope with this absurd tragedy? Have no fear, because we've created a step-by-step survival kit for getting through these trying times. So, stock up on tissues, Advil, and full-fat ice cream, and follow these six easy steps.
1.) Listen to "All Time Low" on a loop.
2.) Stare endlessly at the lads' nearly naked Cosmo spread, and play "count the packs."
3.) Remember the good times with "Glad You Came," and be grateful for the special moments you had together.
5.) SHED TEARS. LOTS AND LOTS OF TEARS.
6.) WEEP, RINSE, AND REPEAT.
