10 Most Shocking Pop Feuds Of The Past 5 Years
It’s no surprise that in the cult-of-celebrity world of Hollywood, there are rivalries. Celebrities are in the constant battle of one-upmanship to reign supreme. We’re counting down the top feuds between some of the most popular performers. What may (or may not) surprise you is the consistency in which certain celebrities are waging it up on the battlefield!
10. Taylor Swift vs. John Mayer
This musical duo had a doozy of a breakup…one that was shared with the world in bold lyrics in songs by both parties. The song “Dear John” was released by Swift in the post-breakup phase of the shortly-lived team Swift-Mayer. The lyrics seem to criticize John for taking advantage of the love of a young girl: “Don’t you think 19s too young to be played by your dark, twisted games?” Swift was 19 and Mayer was 31 when they started dating. “Paper Doll” by Mayer was widely rumored to be a retaliation to Swift’s attack. The lyrics include the line “You’re like 22 girls in one”…most likely a dig at Taylor’s song “22” and the obvious allusion of the title to a faceless girl that is dressed in borrowed robes seems to suit the porcelain-pale, Swift to a tee.
9. Justin Beiber vs. Drake Bell
Nobody knew the name Drake Bell until his feud with the Biebs came to a head. Bell harassed Bieber relentlessly via Twitter insults, criticizing the Canadian-born singer’s “lack” of musicianship. Bieber never responded until the unforgettable album launch party of Drake Bell at Mixology. Bell was all set to party hard in his own honor when Justin Bieber stole the show by pulling up to the club in his Mercedes van. The megastar opened the door enough to smile and wave at fans, and the crowd, including Bell’s “fans” went berserk, screaming and snapping pics. Bell later tweeted, “Why is @justinbieber sprinters van getting more attention than my album release party.” Bieber 1, Bell 0. Ha-ha.
