Taylor Swift And Katy Perry Have Buried Their Beef. But What About Other Celebrity Feuds?

Taylor Swift And Katy Perry Have Buried Their Beef. But What About Other Celebrity Feuds?

One of pop music’s biggest feuds has apparently ended. Taylor Swift and Katy Perry appeared to have quashed their long-running feud as they embraced at the end of Swift’s star-studded latest music video for her song, You Need To Calm Down.

The video ends with her and Perry – Swift, dressed as French fries, and Perry as a hamburger – walking towards each other before hugging.

The display of friendship between the pair comes after they buried the hatchet last year, following their reported row over backing dancers. They are both believed to have addressed the feud through their music – Swift’s Bad Blood is thought to be about Perry, while Perry’s Swish Swish is said to be about Swift.

Swift jokingly referred to their reunion on Twitter as “a happy meal”.

What about other feuds? Which celebrities have ended their beef, and which ones are still thriving?


Wendy Williams vs. Howard Stern

This feud was as recent as March this year. It all began when Wendy Williams was discussing Howard Stern’s upcoming book, Howard Stern Comes Again, and criticized him for losing his shock-jock ways.

“Howard, I love you, but since you’ve gone Hollywood, everything you say is so predictable,” she said. “Every story is going to be about, ‘Oh, I love this one, and then we went on their yacht.’ He’s a Hollywood insider, which sucks.”

“You started like me, being of the people,” she added. “But at some point, you sat behind the microphone for too long and now you are the people. It hurts.”

In saying that Stern had gone soft, Williams brought out the old, combustible Stern. He responded to Williams’ “Hollywood” remark with a long rant on The Howard Stern Show.

“I’m not somebody you want to fuck with, honey,” he said. “I don’t want to hear your fuck. And you’re not a nice person. Nobody likes you, that’s why you can’t go Hollywood. People do not like her. … She’s a big pain in the ass. I hate to break the news to you, honey.”

He also brought up Williams’ hiatus from her show, and hinted at her marital problems. It was later reported that Williams’ husband Kevin Hunter had been having an alleged long-term affair and had fathered a child with his mistress.

However, the two appears to have made up. There was no face-to-face apology, and no hug afterward. And that’s fine, since their spat was conducted over the air. The reconciliation followed a similar path. Stern addressed the feud during a Hollywood Reporter profile, saying he was sorry for his reaction to Williams saying that he had gone “Hollywood.” Williams then went on her show and said all’s good between her and Stern.


Khloe Kardashian vs. Jordyn Woods vs. Kylie Jenner

We all know the story. In February 2019, the rumours were swirling that Khloe Kardashian’s fiancé, Tristan Thompson, was cheating on her with Instagram model and Kylie Jenner’s BFF, Jordyn Woods. Social media was ablaze with this one. At first, Jordyn denied, Tristan denied it, Khloe blamed Jordyn for everything, and Kylie didn’t know what to do.

And then, Jordyn went on Red Table Talk and shared her take on what happened.

“There was a chair here, a couch and another chair, it’s all filled. So he’s sitting in this chair and there’s an arm and I’m sitting on the arm of the chair. In my head, this is innocent. There’s no way this would look like a lap dance, but I could see why people would say, ‘Oh, they were getting cozy.’”

“On the way out, he did kiss me,” she also told Jada Pinkett Smith. “It’s just no passion, no nothing on the way out, he just kissed me. It was like a kiss on the lips, no tongue kiss, no making out, nothing.”

Woods either moved out of Kylie’s place or was kicked out. But as of June 2019, Kylie has essentially made up with Jordyn, though we’re pretty sure they’ll never be 100% BFFs. And as for Khloe, she reportedly “never wants to see Jordyn again.”


Kanye West vs. Wiz Khalifa

Wiz Khalifa was the one to first ignite this crazy feud, calling out Kanye West for changing his album title to Waves.

“Max B is the wavy one. He created the wave. There is no wave without him,” Khalifa blasted on Twitter.

West initially ignored the Pittsburgh native, but ultimately blew up on January 2016, after mistaking a “KK” reference made by Khalifa to be about his wife, Kim Kardashian. (Khalifa, however, was referring to his Khalifa Kush.) “You let a stripper trap you,” West tweeted about Amber Rose in one of his replies. “You own waves???? I own your child!!!!”

West eventually deleted his comments but he concluded the spat with this message: “I’m happy that I now know that KK means weed… please excuse the confusion … now back to #WAVES.”


Vivica Fox vs. 50 Cent

Vivica A. Fox created a firestorm on social media in November 2015 when she implied on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live that her ex-boyfriend 50 Cent was gay.

“I mean, we had a great time,” she said on the show. “He just seems like he’s got something that’s not quite clear.” Fox brought up an old magazine cover featuring 50 Cent, who she dated in 2003, and Soulja Boy. “He just looked like a booty snatcher on that one to me,” Fox remarked.

Her ex caught wind of the comments and replied on Instagram: “Now she thinks I’m gay because I let her lick my ass. Wait, I didn’t want her to, she forced me, my hands were tied. 50 shades of grey.” He added in another post: “Bitch remember when you told me fuck Halle Berry? And you could have played all the roles she did better than her? And I just looked at you … like what the f–k kind [of pill] s–t did you take? LMAO.”

The feud reignited in March 2018 when Fox called her sex life with the rapper “cherished and special” but PG-13 in her book, Every Day, I’m Hustling.

“I’m waking up to this shit,” 50 Cent responded on Instagram. “That was 14 years ago. Smh who does this? What the fuck!”


Miley Cyrus vs. Nicki Minaj

After Miley Cyrus called out Nicki Minaj for her “not so nice” comments about Taylor Swift in a New York Times interview, the Anaconda rapper unexpectedly called out the 2015 MTV VMAs host at the August show — on live television.

“And now back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me in the press: Miley, what’s good?” Minaj said on stage, as she accepted her award. The Pink Friday rapper also mouthed, “Don’t play with me, bitch!”

Cyrus (as well her family members, the audience and well, everyone) appeared shocked from the side. However, in 2018, it looked like any bad blood had been wiped clean between the two when Nicki posted a clip of Miley dancing to Nicki’s track, Chun li, on the fourth of July. Miley responded, “What’s good.”

It seemed like they were laughing it all off. However, in May 2019, Miley debuted some new songs, one of which has the lyric: “I love you, Nicki, but I listen to Cardi.”

The line references Minaj’s feud with fellow rapper Cardi B, which escalated in a heated dispute at the Harper’s Bazaar Icons Party during New York Fashion Week in September, 2018.

Nicki Minaj, of course, had very strong words for Miley Cyrus. In the Friday June 21 episode of her Apple Beats 1 show, Queen Radio, the rapper, shot back: “A Perdue chicken can never talk shit about queens. But I do notice a lot of Perdue chickens recently have been trying to say the queen’s name for clout. And that’s always been happening.”

The rapper added: “That’s what [Cyrus] did in the first place. And then the white girl cried and made the black girl seem like she was a bad guy. In the first place, she disrespected me in a magazine article for no reason.”

Minaj also made a reference to Cyrus’ Black Mirror alter ego, Ashley O. “Now you comin’ out with pink wigs, all you bitches want to be Nicki. This is the problem,” she said.


Julianna Margulies vs. Archie Panjabi

The Good Wife stars, Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi’s contentious relationship was part of the showbiz rumor mill for years, but it was finally exposed in 2015. Panjabi announced she was leaving the CBS series, The Good Wife, and for her final episode, her character, Kalinda, was supposed to share a scene with Margulies’ Alicia — but it was revealed that the women filmed separately, and a green screen was used in post-production.

“[Panjabi] was also doing another show, called The Fall. I went along with whatever Robert asked me to do, and I did it happily,” Margulies claimed in an October 2015 interview.

Panjabi, however, claimed the opposite via Twitter. “@TheFallTV was not even in production at that time,” the actress wrote, “and I was in New York ready to film the scene!”


Taylor Swift vs. Kanye West vs. Kim Kardashian

This epic feud has been going strong ever since Kanye West infamously interrupted Taylor’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Music Awards. Kanye West had a thing or two to say — and let America know it. “Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time,” he said, as he stepped on stage next to a startled Swift to interrupt her acceptance speech.

The two publicly made up the following year, and Kanye even said he was doing new music with Swift in 2015.

And then the song, Famous, happened. This is where it got very messy. One of the most talked-about lines on Kanye West’s just-released new album, The Life of Pablo, in which he claims his infamous interruption of Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards helped her career: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that bitch famous.”

Taylor shot back at Kanye. While accepting the award for Album of the Year at the Grammy Awards in February 2016, the singer appeared to fire back at West.

“I want to say to all the young women out there: there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success, or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame,” Swift said. “But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you … you’ll look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there, and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”

Then Kim Kardashian got involved, because she had the receipts. Kanye’s wife exposed Taylor all over social media, fans went nuts, then the whole snake emoji thing happened. Then Taylor made Look What You Made Me Do. It was wild for so many years.

So, where are they in 2019?

Well, Kim spilled the tea on Watch What Happens Live. In a game of Squash That Beef, she told host Andy Cohen two words to end the beef heard round the world: “Over it.” When Andy asked if any of them had had any communication, Kim said, “No. I feel like we’ve all moved on.”


Nicki Minaj vs. Cardi B

Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, two women who are undisputedly both on top of the hip-hop game right now, have been at one another’s throats via their music, social media slams, or in-person snubs. It’s unfortunate because both emcees are talented, fierce, and stunning. If they didn’t despise one another so much, imagine what they could do together!

Unfortunately for rap fans, it’s really unlikely that Minaj and Bardi will collaborate on anything other than petty drama. This beef seems like it’s going to keep cooking until it’s beyond well-done.

The conflict between the two may have started off as internet gossip, but by the time New York Fashion Week rolled around in late 2018, it became evident that there was bad blood between the two artistes. There was that spat at the Harper’s Bazaar Icon Party, where they were some words and possibly a shoe getting thrown.

Shortly after the rumoured throwdown, Nicki tweeted that she was over all the nonsense and thanked her fans. But not before issuing a warning — or perhaps a veiled threat – on Queen Radio the week after the attack. “You put your hands on certain people, you gon die. Period,” she said. “And y’all sitting here making this shit a joke? I’m not the bitches in the strip club and I’m not a bitch on a reality show. My money is very fucking long.”


Iggy Azalea vs. Azealia Banks

They may share part of a name, but these two female rappers couldn’t be more different. This ongoing feud was refueled in December 2014 when Azealia Banks called out Iggy Azalea for not speaking out about Eric Garner and Ferguson on social media, and bashed her talent. The Fancy MC responded by calling Banks a “bigot” and “miserable angry human being.”


Kanye West vs. Drake

Kanye West and Drake have been feuding for so long that it’s easy to forget how the acrimony began and developed. But it is a story complete with secret children, backstabbing, alleged attacks at shows, sneakers, and betrayal—a strange and bitter rivalry that went on for years.

However, Kanye took to twitter in September 2018 to apologise to Drake, even though he seemed to renew the feud in a barrage of tweets in December.


Kanye West vs. Jay Z

Kanye West and Jay Z were friends and collaborators. Jay Z was the one who signed Kanye to Roc-A-Fella Records and basically made his whole career legitimized. In 2011, they released the Watch The Throne album, and we thought these two would make amazing music forever.

And then, 2016 happened. While on his Saint Pablo tour, Kanye began to rant as only Kanye does, and is now one of his famous onstage moments.

West – whose set started 90 minutes behind schedule – performed for only 15 minutes before turning his levitating stage into a soapbox, which he used to rail against Beyoncé, Jay Z, Mark Zuckerberg, Google and Hillary Clinton. West’s rant traveled from complaining about radio playlists to the most recent MTV Video Music Awards, where Beyoncé delivered a medley of Lemonade tracks, a performance that West said was presented on one condition.

“Beyoncé, I was hurt because I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling,’” West said. “Now don’t go dissing Beyoncé, she’s great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all equal. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are just to win. Fuck winning, fuck looking cool. Fuck looking cool. Fuck being cool. Fuck all that, bruh.”

West added of his Watch the Throne partner Jay Z, “I’ve been sent here to give y’all my truth even at the risk of my own life, my own success, my own career. Jay Z—call me, bruh. You still ain’t called me. Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Please call me. Talk to me like a man.”

West has previously lamented that Jay Z never called him following the Kim Kardashian robbery in Paris.

Jay Z hit back with his track, 4: 44 lyrics: “You ain’t a Saint / This ain’t Kumbaye.”

The recently crowned billionaire rapper also talked about it on the rap radar podcast, saying that what hurt most is that Kanye brought his wife and kid into the feud.


Mariah Carey vs. Jennifer Lopez

This feud has been long-running. Back in the early 2000s, a reporter asked Mariah Carey something about Jennifer Lopez, and Mariah iconically responded, “I don’t know her.”

It is years later, and “I don’t know her” has become perhaps the most iconic words to come out of Mariah Carey’s mouth. It was Andy Cohen, in 2014, who was the first to ask J.Lo directly about the shade of it all.

“I know from back in the day, I’ve read things that she’s said about me that were not the greatest, but we have never met,” Lopez, who is no amateur at delivering a verbal knockout, said. “Like, we don’t know each other. I think it’s kind of from word of mouth of things that have happened in the past that I’m not really aware of.”

Talk of the feud picked up after 2015’s Billboard Music Awards, at which Lopez was caught checking Instagram during Carey’s performance. Video of Lopez idly scrolling through her feed immediately became Lopez’s visual response to Carey’s “I don’t know her” GIF.

In 2016, Lopez stopped by at Watch What Happens Live where, again, Andy Cohen asked about Mariah Carey.

“First of all, that was not fair with the texting thing because I watched a lot of it — it was a long performance,” Lopez said, in what is not not shade. “I watched most of it, I may have looked down for one second and people were like, ‘Look at her! Look at her!’”

Lopez then booked it over to The Wendy Williams Show where she was talking about her Vegas residency, saying she saw all the shows currently on before she signed her deal, except for Mariah Carey because Carey’s show didn’t start until Lopez was already back in New York to film Shades of Blue. Williams saw her chance and took it with the gusto of a bird of prey.

“Who?” the talk show host joked of Carey. “No, I’m playing because that’s what Mariah said about Jennifer one time.”

“She does say that,” Lopez responded, before delivering her magnum opus. “She’s forgetful I guess.”

Mariah must have gotten wind of this salvo, because, on Watch What Happens Live, she joked to Andy Cohen: “Apparently, I’m forgetful. It wasn’t like I don’t know who she is — of course I do. That’s not the question.”


Khloe Kardashian vs. Amber Rose

Amber Rose doesn’t really have a great relationship with anyone in the Kar-Jenner clan, but her fight with Khloe Kardashian is particularly memorable. After Amber Rose insulted Kylie Jenner on a radio show in February 2015, Khloé Kardashian took to Twitter to bash the former stripper. Naturally, Rose fought back, “@khloekardashian I’m happy u brought up the fact that I was a stripper at 15….@khloekardashian I’ll be that lil whore to support my family like ur older sister is a whore 2 support hers,” dissing her ex Kanye West’s wife, Kim Kardashian.

However, once the rumours of Tristan Thompson cheating on Khloe came about, Rose took to her Instagram stories to reach out to her frenemy. She wrote: “I know we’ve had our differences in the past, but my heart is broken for you, sis… No one deserves to feel that pain especially during such a sensitive time. God bless you and your baby.”

The final knot that put this feud to rest was at an episode of (where else?) Watch What Happens Live. When asked about the feud with Amber, Khloe and Kim basically said, “What beef?” And said that they’re all over it.
