Sad news: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have broken off their nine-month engagement. The pair's four year relationship survived a major haircut and one creepy Jonas Brothers song, as well as various rumors both happy and sad. But they could not manage to overcome Liam's possible-cheating scandal, and so now they have parted.

UPDATE: Or not! E! News is saying that the split is just a rough patch. Now that they've chosen a new Pope, expect all the weight of the world's attention to move to solving the mystery of whether or not Cyrus and Hemsworth are done for good.

Let us not dwell on this loss. Instead, let's remember the good times, the brief moments when two very rich and famous young people were able to find a few years of solace from the unending loneliness that consumes us all. Onto the happy memories!
