11 Pairs of Celebrity Enemies That Publicly Got Over Their Feud
Hollywood is surprisingly small. If you’re one to hold grudges, you better bet that you’ll see your enemy around. Whether it’s a mutual stroll on the red carpet or running into each other at an exclusive LA party, is it really worth it to spend all that effort hating each other?
For some stars, it’s easier to bury the hatchet. If you’ve had a fallout with your fellow superstar BFF or boyfriend (i.e. Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato or Taylor Swift and, like, half of Hollywood), it can be exhausting. It gets to a point where it’s easier to play nice than constantly having the press ask why you and your fellow foe are fighting. Plus, who needs all those bad vibes?
Whether they had a mega friendship falling out or never got along in the first place. these 11 pairs of feuding stars decided it was time to let bygones be bygones and publicly got over their feud:
Kanye West & Taylor Swift
Tay's feud with Kanye famously erupted at the 2009 VMAs during her acceptance speech for winning Best Female Video. Ye jumped on stage, snatched the mic and said the words that launched a thousand memes: "I'mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time."
After the incident, Kanye issued an apology on his blog that he later took down. He posted a second apology on his blog, expressed regret on The Jay Leno Show and reportedly even called the songwriter himself to say sorry. A year later, Kanye rattled off another lengthy Twitter apology, and T.Swift penned "Innocent" — a song that seemingly accepted the rapper's apology.
In true Kanye West fashion, just as the beef seemed totally squashed, he stated in an interview that Taylor's Fearless shouldn't have won a Grammy for Album of the Year and insisted the blonde beauty should be grateful for the publicity his VMAs stunt gave her. Ugh.
By the 2015 VMAs, everything between the pair seemed all good. They shared a red carpet low-five and Taylor presented Kanye with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
It's hard to tell if the duo remain chill, when the line among enemy, frenemy and casual-acquaintance-you-can't-possibly-bother-yourself-with-anymore was blurred in early 2016. Kanye released some less-than-complimentary lyrics about T on his new album, The Life of Pablo. But, at least at one point, they hugged it out.
