The early 2000s were an easier time. Ugg boots were socially acceptable footwear, your biggest concern was being in your crush’s top 8 on MySpace, and Nick Cannon was dating Kim Kardashian.
Apparently before Mariah Carey and Kanye West came along, Kim K. and the America’s Got Talent host found love in each other’s arms. Looking back, it seems so strange. (Then again, how Nick Cannon landed Mariah Carey is beyond me and Kim seems like a more sensible match.)
If we know anything about Hollywood couples, it’s that they can be random. But you can’t choose love, right? While on the outside it seemed like Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton per a total power couple – both country singers with small town roots – those two got divorced. Same with Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale – no one saw those rockers breaking up! Who would have predicted that Blake and Gwen would end up together?
A decade ago, it was no different. Seemingly odd couples dated – and most of them broke up. Maybe their romance didn’t last, but these photos did.
