Bad news for people whose lives revolved around Hilary Duff being on Tinder: Hilary Duff is no longer on Tinder. After rumors swirled that Duff joined the dating app following her divorce from hockey player Mike Comrie, she recently confirmed the news to People, while simultaneously confirming her departure. “I was sitting with my friends one night at the house, and we were joking around. In my life, I have always had really serious boyfriends. I’ve always met people through work, and I have never been on a blind date. What’s the worst that could happen?” she said. “I don’t want to see a shirtless mirror selfie. I just want someone who can make you laugh in their profile. I’ve never dated just a ‘normie!’” Our hearts go out to normies everywhere.

It’s hard to imagine that someone as famous and desireable as Katy Perry uses Tinder as anything besides a gag between her and her fab friends, but she did tell a radio station last year that “I’m really deep on Tinder, so I don’t have a whole lot of time.” We have no idea what that means, but if you do come across the “Roar” singer on Tinder, swipe right, dummy.
