Nick Lachey (People)

"Nick and Jessica. Is nothing sacred?"

Nick Lachey of 98 Degrees and Jessica Simpson of...Jessica Simpson were the perfect couple. Pretty, popular, and on their very own MTV reality show, Newlyweds. AND THEN THEY GOT A DIVORCE OMG. Do you see the capital letters? Do you see the use of Netspeak? Do you understand Veronica's reaction now? It was hipster ironic, by the way. Just like ours.

"What's Left of Me" (Music)

"Now I'm broken
And I'm faded
I'm half the man I thought I would be
But you can have what's left of me
"To a very special girl. So, if you're out there and you're listening, Veronica, this is from Logan. He's sorry, girl, and he wants you back."

Ah, the love story of the century, played out in the music scene of the late '90s and early '00s, but coming to a tragic, heart-wrenching end as Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson went their separate ways. She moved on. Quickly. He wrote sad, regretful, take-me-back/no-don't-I-hate you songs, like the one that Heather dedicates to Veronica in Logan's name, promising to give her everything that's left after his heart was decimated and left bruised and bleeding on the side of the road. Romantic mental image, no?
