Celebrities are no strangers when it comes to arguing and shading other A-list stars. Even Meryl Streep clapped back at Chanel’s designer Karl Lagerfeld when he claimed that the actress backed out of wearing one of his designs to this year’s Oscars and going with a brand that would pay her.
This altercation made us want to take a little trip down memory lane of the four huge celebrity feuds.
In the early 2000s, Mariah Carey was doing an interview with a foreign TV station where she was asked of her opinion of several pop stars. She called Beyoncé “nice” and a “good writer,” but when asked about Jennifer Lopez, Carey said, “I don’t know her.” Just like that a meme was a born.
Years later, during the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, the feud reemerged when Lopez was caught checking Instagram during Carey’s performance. This caused fans to speculate that the “Jenny From The Block” singer is still not too pleased with Carey’s comment.
Everyone remembers the time Taylor Swift was accepting the Best Female Video award for her smash hit “You Belong With Me” during the 2009 MTV VMAs, when Kanye grabbed the mic and screamed the phrase that will forever be remembered: “Taylor, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time.” Swift was devastated about the whole situation and even Queen Bey looked mortified watching the whole incident unfold.
It looked like the two buried the hatchet when Swift presented the Video Vanguard Award to Kanye in 2015, but last February, Kanye debuted a new track called ‘Famous’ with the now infamous lyrics, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.”
West claimed he sought Swift’s approval over the lyrics but her camp denied the statement. Then, during Taylor’s Grammy acceptance speech for Album of the Year for 1989, she took a major dig at the rapper without even mentioning his name, saying, “There are going to be people along the way who are going to try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. ”
Kanye added more fuel to the fire releasing the music video for ‘Famous,’ which included a naked life-like wax figure of Swift sleeping right beside him. Not to mention Kim Kardashian released the recording of Swift’s phone conversation with West when she seemingly approved the use of her name in “Famous.” Swift replied in an Instagram note explaining that she was never consulted of being referred to as a “bitch” in the song and has wanted to be “excluded from this narrative” since 2009.
Before there was the Miley Cyrus/Selena Gomez/Nick Jonas love triangle, there was Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan and Aaron Carter. Former teenage heartthrob Aaron Carter started dating Duff after they met on the set of Lizzie McGuire in 2001, where they shared their first kiss.
Nearly two years later, he broke up with Duff and started dating the Mean Girls star, but a few months later Carter went back to Duff. Pretty safe to say the two girls weren’t too happy finding out they were dating the same guy.
Lohan took the fight to the next level when she allegedly called Duff’s A Cinderella Story co-star Chad Michael Murray to spread lies that Duff had stolen other people’s boyfriends. Lohan even had a cast member on SNL portray an over-the-top and unflattering version of Duff during her opening monologue.
While the two Hollywood stars haven’t spoken in ages, Carter proclaimed his love again for the “Coming Clean” singer on Twitter to which Duff replied she “doesn’t know” how she feels.
It all started when Meek Mill took to Twitter demanding that he should stop being compared to Drake because he doesn’t write his own raps and has a ghostwriter.
Stop comparing drake to me too…. He don’t write his own raps! That’s why he ain’t tweet my album because we found out!
— Meek Mill (@MeekMill) July 22, 2015
Rather than Drake taking to social media to address the fight, he released a diss track against Meek Mill called “Charged Up,” in which he raps, “snitching on us without no interrogation. I stay silent ’cause we at war and I’m very patient. 6 God is watching.” Meek Mill responded on Twitter calling the track “baby lotion soft.”
The 6ix God then released another diss (and later Grammy-nominated track) “Back To Back” with the harsh lyrics, “Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?” referencing Mill’s outburst during Nicki Minaj’s Pinkprint show in Brooklyn. Drake added more fuel to the feud, performing the two diss tracks songs for the first time on stage in Toronto with Meek’s tweets in the background, while wearing a Free Meek Mill t-shirt.
Although it looks like the Degrassi alumni has put the Twitter beef to rest, telling fans during a performance in Las Vegas this past New Year’s Eve that he would no longer perform the diss tracks.
