DISCLAIMER: While we tirelessly scanned through our celebrity hug archives and endeavoured to bring you pictures of HAPPY HUGS in honour of NATIONAL HUG DAY TODAY, unfortunately around 70% of all celebrity hug images appear to be either awkward and/or sad.
So, apologies in advance for the sad hugs but we did do our best.
CELEBRITY HUG 1: We begin on a high: it's Jay Z and Beyonce hugging on holiday.
Boats, mountains, Jay Z AND Beyonce: it's ideal hugging conditions here.
CELEBRITY HUG 2: Drake and Bieber hugging at a party, with thumbs up bonus.
CELEBRITY HUG 3: Drake and The Weeknd hugging on stage.
A bit more actual arm hugging action here and this could have been a pretty decent hug.
CELEBRITY HUG 4: Drake and LA Clippers' Chris Paul hugging at a game as startled man looks on.
A little distracted and we could do without the startled man but this is still a good hugging effort.
CELEBRITY HUG 5: Jay Z, Cigar and Rihanna.
Rhianna's dead eyes. This is just no good.
CELEBRITY HUG 6: Drake and Taylor Swift at an awards show.
ARHHHHHHG WHY SO SAD WHY. IT'S TAYLOR SWIFT, DRAKE!
CELEBRITY HUG 7: Drake and Rihanna
EVERYONE IS SAD IN THIS HUGGING PICTURE URGH.
We tried. Happy Hug Day, guys.
