8 Girl-on-Girl Celebrity Feuds That Were
Probably DEFINITELY Fake
Hopefully this isn’t earth-shattering, brand-new information to any of our readers, but *NEWSFLASH* the world is sexist. Nothing gets people talking like a feisty catfight, which means girl-on-girl celebrity drama is just another trick in Hollywood’s arsenal to make some major money. Sure, feuds involving any gender tend to attract an audience (which is why there’s so much fake beef in the rap industry, too — Drake v. Meek Mill, anyone?), but seriously, watching women snap at one another seems to be a great American pastime.
This isn’t to say all famous dramatic rivalries are fakes. In fact, many thought Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus‘ VMA “Miley, What’s Good?” conflict was completely BS (the VMAs are known for
publicity stunts crazy events), but after a thorough look at the evidence, experts in the field (a.k.a. diehard fans) have resolved that this particular confrontation was too legit to quit. Miles and Nick may been proven innocent in that case, but they both (and 14 others!) are on blast below for some other questionable “feuds” they’ve participated in before:
Taylor Swift v. Katy Perry
The former country singer and the sometimes-bottled-brunette crooner has been long, drawn out and confusing for most of us.
Apparently, it all started with Katy stealing the backup dancers from Tay's tour, but they also have an ex-boyfriend in common, John Mayer, and were thought to be friends up until the tour dancer fiasco.
Two popular diss tracks, "Bad Blood" by Taytay, and Katy's "Swish Swish," were born out of this iconic fight and recently, the 32-year-old pop star told James Corden that she wanted to bury the hatchet with her 27-year-old nemesis. However, it was with the release of "Swish Swish" that people started skeptically raising an eyebrow to this supposed rivalry.
As all of us know, the only accurate response to any feud is by hitting your new foe with the unfollow. Like, did you see the fall out from Luke Hemmings' breakup with Arzaylea? Basically everyone smacked that girl with a hard hit of the unfollow button. But what was revealed recently is that despite actual years of public shades and sly digs, neither Katy nor Taylor have unfollowed the other on social media. While a couple people think the following can be simply explained with a "keep your friends close and your enemies closer"-type argument, others are calling a major BS on this whole celebrity feud thing.
