The only thing I like about Feb. 14 is seeing how my favorite celebrities spent Valentine's Day. There's nothing to cure my bitterness towards the holiday like seeing what Beyonce or Kimye or Tom Hiddleston was up to. I may not have been able to join them on the big day, but thanks to Instagram we can all get a peek into the love lives of Hollywood's elite.
Stars were out in full force on social media to post pictures of their loved ones and the heart-shaped foods they were eating. But even those who were single joined in on the fun to celebrate their friends or pets. It's the best thing to come out of the generally depressing holiday, so read on to see how 20 stars celebrated the romantic occasion.
The newly-single Bachelorette celebrated the holiday with her best gal pals. On the 13th she hit up a Blackhawks hockey game with fellow Bachelor contestant Christy Hansen. And on the 14th, she received yellow roses from Nikki Ferrell, who is also recently single after breaking things off with Bachelor Juan Pablo. A Valentine’s Day with friends is the best way to do things, anyway.

Chrissy Teigen & John Legend
Legend surprised Teigen with a “magical mystery date” to an unknown location. But wherever it was, I’m sure it was pretty special, because these two are the best.

Koko spent her holiday with friends, notably her BFF Malika Haqq and Kylie Jenner’s dog Norman. The reality star posted a picture of her hanging with Malika captioned, “My forever valentine @forevermalika.” She also posted a shot of her nuzzling the new pup. I can attest to dogs being the best Valentines, so good job Khloe.
