We all love a good celebrity versus celebrity beef, but usually when you hear about it, you’re like, “yeah, I’d imagine that those two don’t get along.” There are some celebrities, though, that make it hard to picture themselves and their enemies in the same room, let alone embroiled in a feud. Here are some incredibly surprising celebrity beefs.
Daniel Craig vs. the Kardashians
Some people just never learned to accept that fact that the Kardashians are famous. While speaking to GQ, Daniel Craig ranted about reality TV and called the Kardashians idiots, which lead to a short war of words. It’s just hard to picture a proper British guy like Craig even having an opinion on the Kardashians. He knew all about the show, so that means he’s watched it. But I can’t believe that’s what James Bond does during his spare time. I just can’t.
Jennifer Aniston vs. Bill O’Reilly
If you don’t agree with Bill O’Reilly’s views, he’s going to yell at you. It’s kind of his whole thing. Still, he once got into a fight with Jennifer Aniston over comments she made praising single mothers. They went back and forth a little bit, and it was just weird. Why does Bill O’Reilly take Jennifer Aniston’s views so seriously? Nothing against Jennifer Aniston, but I just don’t think she has a ton of sway over society. Personally, I think O’Reilly was just negging her, because he seems like the sort of guy who uses pick up artist advice books.
Miley Cyrus vs. Sinead O’Connor
A few years ago, when Miley Cyrus rebranded herself, everyone had something to say about it. Sinead O’Connor, the “Nothing Compares 2 U” singer with a shaved head, went one step further and penned an open letter to Cyrus, giving her career advice like “don’t prostitute yourself”. Of course, that sounds less like advice and more like an insult, so a social media battle between the two began, leaving most people asking, “who is Sinead O’Conner?” Sinead O’Conner starting a fight with Miley Cyrus would be like your grandmother calling a popular kid at your school whom she’s never met to criticize their life choices.
Taylor Swift vs. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
Having Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host the 2013 Golden Globes probably seemed like a safe bet. They’re popular, funny, and people generally seem to like them. Nobody took Taylor Swift’s feelings into account, however. Fey and Poehler made a joke about Swift during the show, and Swift responded by suggesting that there was a special place in hell for the duo. Out of all the people I would’ve guessed, I never would’ve thought Taylor Swift would be the person upset with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s jokes. Usually the only people also offended by Poehler and Fey are old, rich men.
Madonna vs. Drake
When Madonna and Drake performed together at the 2015 Coachella, Madonna surprised Drake with a kiss. He surprised her by looking completely disgusted afterwards. Trying to save face, Madonna went after Drake on social media, saying that she shouldn’t have kissed him and implying he was a bad kisser. While Madonna’s words probably hurt, nothing could ever sting as much as the face Drake made when the kiss happened.
Iggy Azalea vs. Snoop Dogg
Iggy Azalea is definitely one of those “love her or hate her”-sort of singers, and apparently Snoop Dogg falls into the “hate her” category. Snoop kept posting pictures comparing Azalea to the Wayans brothers from White Chicks, and it was surprising because it came out of nowhere. Snoop Dogg just decided to start using his Twitter and Instagram to trash Iggy. She fired back, and then responded by dressing as a character from White Chicks for Halloween. Unfortunately, that just proved Snoop Dogg’s point.
Eminem vs. Mariah Carey
Eminem has been involved with a ton of beefs, but they’re usually with fellow rappers (or pretend rappers like Fred Durst). His strangest feud, however, was with Mariah Carey. Em claimed they had dated, and Mariah completely denied it. Of course, Eminem wrote a bunch lyrics about her, but then Mariah Carey fired back by releasing a diss track. Let me repeat that: Mariah Carey released a diss track. The craziest part is that out of all the people Eminem has beefed with, Mariah burned him the worst.
