As far as I'm concerned, today is Taco Tuesday. I don't care what anyone who has a significant other says. February 14, 2017 is *sobs* Taco Tuesday and Taco Tuesday alone.

OK, OK, OK, yes. I get that today is also technically Valentine's Day, but for the rest of us sad, lonely sacks, tacos are all we have.

So enjoy your dumb, couples dinners and couples rowboat trips and not-dying-alone-because-you-fell-in-the-kitchen-and-hit-your-head-and-nobody-was-around-to-call-911. The rest of us will be here, single, free and avoiding kitchens.

In honor of the day, we hooked up with Mexikosher in NYC to make some tacos based on recent celebrity breakups. Why? For some reason, we thought combining tacos and broken relationships would make us happier.

5. The RIP Jelena

Elite Daily

Messy. Just like sooooo messy. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have had one of the longest, messiest breakups in history. World history. Like out of everyone to have ever lived, Justin and Selena's breakup is in the top 10 messiest breakups.

Ingredients: chorizo taco with pickled red onions, radish salad, fresh cilantro and a bunch of dippin' sauces

Will make you say: "The way her nose gets wrinkled when she laughs, the way she casually pushes the hair away from her eyes, the way she makes me feel is all caps. When I'm with her, I feel like I'm flying in the skies."
