Biggest Celebrity Feuds of 2016
Celebrities live a pretty easy life, having every luxury at their disposal. They are known, admired and revered. But their lives are very public. When they get into spats with other celebrities or are embroiled in some saga, the stories make fodder for tabloids and blogs. As you adjust into the New Year, you can look back and see the greatest celebrity feuds that characterized 2016:
Kanye West vs. Taylor Swift
Topping the list is the altercation between rapper Kanye West and Taylor Swift. The two celebrities’ beef began when Taylor sensationally denied that she had given Kanye West the permission to speak about her in one of his songs.
Taylor Swift could have gotten away with the seemingly false claims if this was the Stone Age period- because, in the era of technology, somebody could have recorded the conversation between the two. And, true to that, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West’s wife, was infuriated and compelled to produce a recording of the call between Kanye and Taylor on Snapchat. Then there was a big egg on Taylor’s face as the Twitterverse pounced on her.
Rob Kardashian vs. Blac Chyna
It seems the Kardashian family has a certain penchant for scandal. This time it was Rob Kardashian involved in a spat with his wife, Blac Chyna. In December 2016, Chyna decided to leave Rob with an empty nursery.
Rob, he of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians, took to Instagram to share his disappointment. Well, some people suspected the whole parting thing was a hoax designed to improve their ratings. And since Rob and Chyna came back together, the jury is still out on what exactly happened.
Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid versus Stephanie Seymour
Stephanie Seymour touched a live wire when she ‘recklessly’ called out Jenner and Hadid. She termed them as ‘bitches of the moment.’
The war of words took an interesting turn when Gigi’s sister chimed in, revealing that her sister was self-made and had actually worked her ass off.
Demi Lovato vs. Taylor Swift
2016 must have been a long year for Taylor Swift. She was cantankerous all through. In this case, she was at the receiving end of Demi Lovato’s vitriol.
Demi had unflatteringly described Taylor’s squad. Taylor took offense. While she didn’t unleash hell on Demi, sources close to the acclaimed celeb intimate that she was seething inwardly.
Nicki Minaj vs. Demi Lovato
If there is one thing Nicki Minaj learned in 2016 is that if you take a group photo, remember to tag everybody. She learned this the hard way. Nicki posted a photo of herself, designer, Jeremy Scott, and Demi Lovato- but she forgot to tag Lovato. Lovato did her thing- an epic late-night Instagram rant on the same.
This picture pretty much summed up my first and probably last met ???????????? #cool #sofuckingawkward #notforme #sweatpants #forensicfiles #whatsgood p.s. some of y’all need to learn how to take a joke.. I’m obviously laughing at the fact that 1. I look incredibly awkward and 2. That the shade being thrown in this picture actually gives me life ????????????
Truly, 2016 was a year of celebrity drama. Let’s see what 2017 has- and for as long as the Kardashians and Taylor Swifts of this world rule Hollywood, there is always a demand for popcorns because there is an oversupply of drama.
