This isn't a feud so much as an unfortunate misunderstanding. When Minaj's "Anaconda" music video wasn't nominated for Video of the Year at the 2015 VMAs, she went on Twitter to protest in July 2015. "If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year," she wrote. Swift, who was nominated, took the tweet as an intentional diss and replied, "I've done nothing but love & support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot.." The rapper then clarified she was never referring to the pop singer in the first place. "Huh? U must not be reading my tweets. Didn't say a word about u. I love u just as much. But u should speak on this. @taylorswift13," she posted. Swift later apologized and admitted her mistake, but not before Katy Perry jumped in to offer her two cents on the matter. She tweeted, "Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman..." Ouch!
After Rose commented on Kylie Jenner's relationship with Tyga on The Breakfast Club in February 2015, calling her a "baby" who "needs to go to bed at 7 o'clock and relax," Kardashian came to her little sister's defense on Twitter. "Please don't worry about my sister who has a career and her s--t together at ONLY 17. People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones," she posted, also referencing the fact Rose admitted she stripped at 15 to provide for her family. "Please stop talking about us in interviews mama. None of us talk about you," the E! reality star added. The feud got nastier when Rose fired back and dissed Kim Kardashian. "@khloekardashian I'll be that lil whore to support my family like ur older sister is a whore 2 support hers. We're even #MuvaGivesFacts," she wrote.
Calvin Harris and Zayn Malik engaged in a heated Twitter argument in August 2015 after the former One Direction member retweeted a post that seemingly implied Taylor Swift is greedy for pulling all of her music from Spotify. Harris came to his ladylove's defense and wrote, "You've made your money? Cool...f--k the 99% of musicians who depend on these services to survive right? Yeah f--k em." He also added, "If u don't get what it means when a successful artist uses their celebrity to benefit every other musician and songwriter in the industry...stay out my f--kin mentions pls." Malik then responded in a series of tweets and wrote, "ha you just made an absolute fool of yourself mate. you clearly didn't understand what I just said either. so i suggest you calm your knickers before them dentures fall out." He eventually concluded by calling the DJ a "d--khead."
The "Super Bass" rapper found herself embroiled in a heated Twitter argument in January 2016 after she tweeted her, um, candid thoughts on an episode of Teen Mom OG. "Farrah is a c--t to her mother," she wrote. Yikes! Abraham obviously didn't take too kindly to the insult and replied, "Cause your a parent right? Your videos look like porn Horrible good luck being negative #Godbless busy making TV." Minaj blasted back, "Your mother didn't open her legs and have that child. Be happy she's helping! Stop talking to her like that on tv u lil c--t @F1abraham." The MC also added, "Instead of dragging your mother, learn the difference between 'you're' & 'your', ding bat."
Meek Mill fired major shots at Drake when he accused him of using a ghostwriter on social media in July 2015 after Drizzy didn't tweet support for his new album, Dreams Worth More Than Money. "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 tweeted. The rapper continued, "He ain't even write that verse on my album and if I woulda knew I woulda took it off my album..... I don't trick my fans! Lol." While Drake never responded to Meek's allegations on Twitter, he did release two diss tracks, "Charged Up" and "Back to Back," in response, which seemed to silence the "Amen" rapper and end the feud.
After the split, comes the drama! Following Malik's departure from 1D, music producer Naughty Boy posted a filtered-up photo with the newly-solo singer in the studio in May 2015. Several hours later, Tomlinson tweeted, "Remember when you were 12 and you used to think those Mac filters for your pictures were cool haha ! Some people still do HA!" Naughty Boy took offense to the comment and replied, "@Louis_Tomlinson and some people can't even sing...but who's complaining when there's auto tune eh." Malik soon got wind of the feud and chimed in by throwing shade at his former bandmate with a tweet of his own. "remember when you had a life and stopped making bitchy comments about mine?" he posted. Where's the love, guys?
The two rappers have had their fair share of spats on social media over the years, but it became extremely tense in December 2014 after Azalea received a nomination for Best Rap Album at the 2015 Grammys. Banks then claimed she "isn't better than any f--king black girl that's rapping today" and referred to her as "not excellent" during an interview with Hot 97. Soon after, Azalea tweeted a reply to Banks' comments and wrote, "There are many black artists succeeding in all genres. The reason you haven't is because of your piss poor attitude…you created your own unfortunate situation by being a bigot and don't have the mental capacity to realize yet." Banks fired back with her own string of tweets and posted, "Dear LordT, I Pray for this Clueless White Girl...None of this will make sense to her until she herself has children with a black man and has to deal with having black children in America. The interview was about things way beyond your mental capacity. You have absolutely no place to comment." Banks concluded by calling the Australian artist a "minstrel."
Yeezus went on an angry Twitter tirade against Jimmy Kimmel after the late-night host spoofed an interview the rapper did with BBCRadio in September 2013 using child actors. In a stream of all-capitalized tweets, West called Kimmel "out of line" and claimed his ex-girlfriend Sarah Silverman is "a thousand times funnier" than him. "JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD P--SY IN YOUR LIFE," one post read. The comedian seemed to laughed off the insults and responded, "apparently @KanyeWest is VERY VERY ANGRY with me...."
We're not sure what John McClane did to make Rocky mad, but Sly certainly let him have it when he tweeted about The Expendables 3 movie in August 2013. "WILLIS OUT... HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!" he posted. He also added, "GREEDY AND LAZY ...... A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE." Whoa! Stallone later admitted he needed to stop tweeting because he always gets in "trouble."
The R&B songstresses engaged in a Twitter showdown after Ciara called out the "Diamonds" singer on Fashion Police in February 2011 for being impolite at a party. Rihanna responded to the insult and tweeted, "My bad ci, did I 4get to tip u? #howrudeofme." Ciara then replied, "Trust me Rhianna u dont want to see me on or off the stage." The two went back and forth until RiRi decided to call a truce. "Ciara baby, I love u girl! U hurt my feelings real bad on TV! I'm heartbroken! That's y I retaliated this way! So sorry! #letsmakeup," she wrote. Ciara graciously accepted her apology and the feud cooled off. Whew!
Kelly Osbourne lashed out at Lady Gaga in October 2013 because she bought her birthday cake and presented it to her mom, Sharon Osbourne, during an appearance on The X Factor UK. After hearing about the gesture, Kelly tweeted, "Not to be ungrateful but why would you send me a birthday cake via my MOTHER in a country half the [world] away? #JustSendItToME #LoveNotWar." She also posted a photo of a cake with the hashtags, "#EatMySh-t #Hypocrisy." In response, Gaga took the high road and tweeted, "I didn't know it was your B-day until this afternoon. Meant as a peace offering. Happy Birthday." The two ladies previously clashed after Kelly called the Mother Monster a "butterface" in 2009.
When Chelsea Handler got wind Nick Cannon was going on a comedy tour, she took a jab at the America's Got Talent host on Twitter in October 2010. "I just heard nick cannon is starting a comedy tour. Who's going to the do the comedy?" she wrote. Cannon countered, "Wow @chelseahandler I actaully used to have respect for you as a comic. But for one artist to diss another in the same art form. #Tasteless." But the feud turned ugly after Handler suggested he drink some grape soda before he tweeted at her again. The actor then dissed the comedienne's past relationships and career in a handful of mean tweets. One such post read, "Just talked to @50cent He said he made @chelseahandler get G-Unit tattooed on her balls!"
Kardashian posted and deleted a stream of angry tweets in December 2012, accusing his ex-girlfriend of cheating on him with "nearly 20 dudes." He also wrote, "How can a woman who is so busy trying to start her own career have time to be with so many dudes all while in a relationship?!" The "Poison" songstress then came back with a vicious retort. She wrote and swiftly deleted, "Rob's d--k was wack, I had to go get it somewhere else."
Charlie Sheen used Twitter to take his wrath out on the pop star after she declined to meet his former fiancée, who was a huge fan, on her birthday when they happened to be at the same restaurant in May 2014. The actor tweeted, "Nice impression you left behind, Bday or not. Sorry we're not KOOL enough to warrant a blessing from the Princess. (Or in this case the Village idiot.)." He continued by sharing some advice. "Here's a tip from a real vet of this terrain; If ya don't wanna get bothered DONT LEAVE YOUR HOUSE!" he wrote. On her part, Rihanna was barely fazed by the unexpected outburst. She hilariously tweeted, "If that old queen don't get ha diapers out of a bunch..."
When the singer posted a casual tweet about looking old in November 2012, the comedienne hit back with, "I know! Being a worthless piece of s--t can really age a person." And that's when the gloves came off. Brown posted a handful of vulgar tweets in response, which included calling Johnson a "HOE." Johnson, however, didn't concede defeat and replied, "It's 'HO' not 'HOE' you ignorant f--k." After his rant concluded, Brown cut his losses and deleted his Twitter account for a short time.
The Irish singer-songwriter probably didn't realize she would start a social media fire storm when she wrote an open letter to Cyrus about exploitation and being "pimped" by the music industry in October 2013. Cyrus responded by posting a screengrab with a series of O'Connor's old tweets and comparing her to Amanda Bynes. In a second open letter, O'Connor called Cyrus "anti-female" and "f--king stupid." The "Wrecking Ball" performer replied on Twitter yet again and wrote, "Sinead, I don't have time to write you an open letter because Im hosting and performing on SNL this week. So if youd like to meet and talk lemme know in your next letter. :)."
The Donald decided to use his 140 characters to hurl harsh insults at comedian Russell Brand in October 2014. "I watched Russell Brand @rustyrockets on the @jimmyfallon show the other night—what the hell do people see in Russell—a major loser!" he posted. Trump also tweeted, ".@katyperry must have been drunk when she married Russell Brand @rustyrockets—but he did send me a really nice letter of apology!" Brand struck back and wrote, ".@realDonaldTrump are you drunk when you write these tweets? Or does that foam you spray on your bald head make you high?" Shaaade!
Frances Bean Cobain was none too pleased after hearing the singer told The Guardian she "wished" she was dead already in June 2014 when the interviewer mentioned Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse. The rocker's daughter inevitably went online to criticize Del Rey for her cryptic comment. "The death of young musicians isn't something to romanticize," she wrote. In response, Del Rey defended herself and claimed her words were taken out of context. "it's all good. He was asking me a lot a out your dad I said I liked him because he was talented not because he died young," she posted. "the other half of what I said wasn't really related to the people he mentioned/ I don't find that part of music glam either."
In one of the more random social media squabbles, Bette Midler battled it out with the ponytail princess in November 2014. The beef started after the Hocus Pocus actress critiqued Grande's performance at the 2014 VMAs and said, "It's always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch, looking so ridiculous." She also added, "You don't have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead." The statement didn't go over well with the the "Problem" singer, who proceeded to throw some subtle shade by sharing an old photo of Midler dressed in skimpy attire with the caption, "all love here." The minor spat ended with Midler's somewhat-apologetic reply. She tweeted, "About my screed on @ArianaGrande , all I can say is, 'Spoken like a reformed old whore! She does have a beautiful voice, on a couch or off.'"
The talk show host thought it would be funny to poke a little fun at Madeleine Albright on Twitter in October 2014, but it was the former Secretary of State who ended up getting the last laugh. He tweeted, "I picked out my Halloween costume. I'm going as "Slutty Madeleine Albright." The politician cleverly shot back with, "I'm considering going as hunky Conan O'Brien—but that might be too far fetched." Boom!
