Whether they’re royals, politicos, or Hollywood stars, celebs can’t do anything halfway — especially when they know the world’s watching. So even the sad, tragic dissolution of a relationship can be a stage for indulgent excess.

Even her involvement with the First Lady was mostly just more dancing.
