If our recap of the tastiest beef from the 90s has made you hungry for more, here’s our fave celebrity spats from the past decade. If we had a time machine our first stop would be that restaurant in Ibiza in 2014…
Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry
This feud began in 2014, when Taylor Swift claimed that one of her female musician peers had stolen her backup dancers for a tour. Many fans and media outlets speculated that she was referring to Katy Perry, and the feud escalated from there. The two traded barbs on social media and in their music, with Swift’s song “Bad Blood” widely believed to be about Perry.
Kim Kardashian vs. Taylor Swift
This feud began in 2016 when Kim Kardashian released a video on Snapchat that appeared to show Taylor Swift giving her approval to some of the lyrics in Kanye West’s song “Famous.” Swift later claimed that she had been misrepresented and did not approve of the full song. The two continued to trade jabs on social media, with Swift writing a song called “Look What You Made Me Do” that was widely seen as a dig at Kardashian and West.
Justin Bieber vs. Orlando Bloom
This feud began in 2014, when Justin Bieber was rumored to have had a fling with Orlando Bloom’s then-wife, Miranda Kerr. The two men got into a physical altercation at a restaurant in Ibiza, Spain, and the incident was widely reported in the media. The feud continued for several years, with Bieber and Bloom exchanging jabs on social media and in interviews.
Nicki Minaj vs Miley Cyrus
This all kicked off at the 2015 VMAs, with Nicki Minaj calling out host Miley for criticizing her, and Miley hitting back in style. The feud had been simmering for a while before that moment, with Nicki Minaj expressing her frustration on Twitter over not being nominated for Video of the Year for her song “Anaconda.” She accused the music industry of being biased against black women and said that her video would have been nominated if she were a different “kind” of artist. Miley Cyrus had given an interview to the New York Times in which she criticized Nicki’s comments, saying that she didn’t think it was about race and that Nicki was “not too kind” or “polite” in her criticism. After the incident at the VMAs, the feud continued to escalate, with both Nicki and Miley taking shots at each other in interviews and on social media.
