Celebrities may have a lot in common - money, cars, expensive homes and paparazzi shadowing their every move - but this doesn't necessarily mean that they all get along. In fact, celebrity spats and rivalries seem more common than celebrity friendships these days. Some celebrity tustles throughout the years have been ongoing and highly publicised.
Of course, one of the most memorable celebrity fights in recent years kicked off with Taylor Swift's showdown with Kanye West at the VMAs in 2009. When Kanye painfully interrupted the singer's acceptance speech for the Best Video award, fans got behind camp Swift or camp Kanye, and the incident became modern celebrity legend. It’s been five years since the VMAs incident, and a lot has happened since then. New celebrity rivalries have formed out of a myriad of complexities, and some are particularly bitter. 2014 has, so far, been an almost unprecedented year for highly publicised bad feeling between certain well-loved celebs, with social media networks like Twitter all too readily available to fuel the fire of these spats: The following are nine of the most unpredictable, most heated and most cringe-worthy celeb rivalries of the year.
9 Sarah Michelle Gellar VS Kim Kardashian
8 Lily Allen VS Katie Hopkins
7 Die Antwoord VS Lady Gaga & Pitbull
6 Justin Bieber VS Orlando Bloom
5 Gwyneth Paltrow VS Martha Stewart
4 Katy Perry VS Taylor Swift
Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are very similar. Both two fantastic voices, they both achieved huge success at a very young age and have made themselves household names. They've also both been linked to John Mayer, along with countless other gorgeous A-list women...
3 Miley Cyrus VS Sinéad O’ Connor
Miley Cyrus has hit the headlines almost every week in the past year. Her new image, erratic behaviour and change of musical direction shocked the industry and her fans. However, Miley’s behaviour brought her to loggerheads with Irish pop legend Sinéad O'Connor. When Miley declared that Sinéad’s ‘Nothing Compares To You’ video had been the inspiration for her controversial video for ‘Wrecking Ball’, Sinéad publicly retorted via an open letter, expressing concern for Miley’s attitude.
2 Frances Bean Cobain VS Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey found herself under fire earlier this year after her spat with Frances Bean Cobain, the only daughter of the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love. In an interview with The Guardian, Lana proclaimed that she “wished [she] was dead already”, and claimed that early death was somewhat glamorous.
1 Lorde VS Almost Everyone
Lorde may be one of the youngest players on the international music scene, but she certainly has one of the loudest voices, both musically and when it comes to publicising her opinions about other celebrities. Soon after her very first hit, Lorde was making enemies in the music industry by making harsh comments about other artists, all seemingly unprovoked. Here's a small collection of her backhanded comments:
On Justin Bieber: “I feel like the influences that are there in the industry for people my age, like Justin Bieber or whatever, are just maybe not a very real depiction of what it’s like to be a young person.”
On Selena Gomez: “I’m a feminist, and the theme of her song [Come And Get It] is, ‘When you’re ready come and get it from me.’ I’m sick of women being portrayed this way.”
On One Direction: "One Direction are pretty overrated and their music isn't really good. I find it odd they're famous.”
On Lana Del Rey: "I listened to that Lana Del Rey record and the whole time I was just thinking it's so unhealthy for young girls to be listening to, you know: 'I'm nothing without you.' This sort of shirt-tugging, desperate, 'don't leave me' stuff. That's not a good thing for young girls, even young people, to hear.”
Lorde also branded Nicki Minaj’s music as “irrelevant” and David Guetta as “gross”. There are undoubtedly many who will share some of her opinions, but her very public approach to expressing them has earned Lorde a bit of a reputation on the A-List.
