8 Forgotten Pop Feuds
They either happened so long ago that people have genuinely forgotten, or they fell flat, because they couldn’t compete with the rash of rivaled activity that occurs daily in the social media mix. We’re talking forgotten pop feuds. Everyone loves a good feud. It is always catalyst for a good chuckle — millionaires beefing about the silliest stuff…? It’s a great way to keep a little high school in your life, well after graduation. Here are eight forgotten feuds featuring some of the biggest names in the music business.
8. Jay-Z vs. Solange Knowles
Didn’t this just happen? Yes. Pretty much. And it was on fire for a few short minutes, before someone killed it with a fire extinguisher. Stemming from some sort of a disagreement at the Met Gala, Solange Knowles — sister of Beyonce — and Jay-Z, got into a fracas in an elevator. Well, to be fair and transparent, Jay-Z was basically assaulted by his sister-in-law, who tossed in a couple slaps, kicks and cat claws, before bodyguards were able to get between them. Looking back at it now, didn’t it seem odd that nobody tried to break it up? Beyonce stood there the entire time, and didn’t really do or say anything. The aftermath was better than the incident itself, weighted with “why did this happen,” and the alleged feud between Solange and Jay-Z began. All because of something Jay-Z said, or did. Allegedly…
7. John Mayer vs. Jessica Simpson
What ex-girlfriend has John Mayer not feuded with? Yes, he’s in the midst of a little tiff with Taylor Swift, but long before Taylor — and Katy Perry — John enjoyed a fling with Jessica Simpson. In fairness to John, he has seemingly grown up a lot over the past 10 years. Being that he’s pushing 40, that’s a good thing, and probably a little overdue. He’s admitted to being a jerk to women he’s dated in the past: Taylor Swift; Jennifer Aniston; Jessica Simpson. But with Jessica, he completely threw her under the bus publicly, when he offered an interview with Playboy, and referred to Jessica as “sexual napalm.” He went on to express his feelings about her sexually, and how addictive she was. He put her in the category of “crack cocaine.” Jessica didn’t take kindly to these statements, and the short, John vs. Jess feud began.
