Infamous With Taryn Southern: Top 5 Female Celebs Who Are Single

By  | 

For some reason, I just can’t get enough of single-girl-tainment. You know, all girl ensemble casts, fabulous wardrobes, and nights of binge drinking followed with tears and/or vomit? I’m clearly over-simplifying, but I can’t help it – I love it. All of it.

I’m a diehard Girls fan, can quote from Bridesmaids, and Whitney Cumming’s single stand-up routine makes me pee my pants.

I couldn’t help it, when it came time to write the last song on my comedy album, I had to dedicate it to the world I know best—that of a single girl.

Art imitating life? Life imitating art? I’m not sure—but I don’t think my obsession with the plight of single women will disappear anytime soon. Tequila shots and Friday night sob sessions on the couch are here to stay!

Fortunately, I get to deal with my issues on my own, but what about all the female celebs who have to deal with chronic singledom in front of the whole world? It’s time they get honored, if not only ‘cuz they’re fierce and independent, but because these gals make being single look just so gosh darn easy.

You’ll have to watch the video to see my top five, but a few that still deserve honorable mention, simply for their taste in all the wrong men:

Katy Perry

Girl is hotter than a California dream, newly single, and fresh on the bad boy prowl. Considering her former ex-husband has publicly admitted to drug and sexual addictions, and current beau John Mayer isn’t exactly known for tactful womanizing, will homegirl ever settle down with a nice guy? Katy, whatever gives you fireworks.

Kim Kardashian

This reality star/powerhouse filed for divorce against Kris Humphries after just 72 days of marriage…but it wasn’t long before she was back in the arms of Kanye West. Athletes, rappers, and lavish multi-million dollar weddings resulting in lawsuits…when will this girl learn?

Jennifer Lopez

From Diddy to Ben Affleck to Marc Anthony, J-Lo’s dating history is as diverse as it is tumultuous. After three marriages (and divorces), she’s now with Casper Smart, eighteen years her junior (to which I say, you go girl!)  Only time with tell if this knockout will ever settle down…for real.

Carmen Electra

They say don’t judge a book by it’s cover, but Carmen Electra has an awful lot of questionable covers on her little black book. Fred Durst, Tommy Lee, Dave Navarro, Prince, Dennis Rodman. While I’d like to think most of these relationships consisted of quiet meals by a fire, my bets are she’s seen a lot of crazy.

So there you have it! Make sure to watch the video above for the full list of top five single celeb females — and let me know if there’s anyone you think I left off the list. And as always, check out my original music video, Single Girls, if anything, so you can laugh at how pathetic I am. ‘Til next time!!
