Most of us gossip and trash talk others. It’s only natural and it's part of who we are as human beings. Sometimes we trash talk out of jealousy, sometimes we trash talk because we are offended and other times we trash talk because we are simply feeling spiteful.
We have all made nasty comments about our friends or acquaintances at some point in our lives. And celebrities are no exception. They also love to trash talk. The only difference is – when celebrities trash talk, the whole world knows. Nasty comments soon turn into big drama.
Over the years, most celebrities have trash talked other celebrities. Sometimes nasty comments were made intentionally and were meant to hurt. Other times they were made unintentionally. Either way, the outcome was, and is, always the same – trash talk leads to drama, celebrity feuds and entertainment for the fans.

Earlier this year, the singer Katy Perry made mean comments about Spear’s breakdown. She first made a nasty comment when talking about her new hairstyle in an interview on the red carpet at the 59th Grammy Awards – “It’s the last color in the spectrum that I can do, I’ve done all of them and the only thing left to do is shave my head which I’m really saving for a public breakdown. I’m down for that.”

Later, McCurdy posted another tweet, this time directed straight at Grande – “I might possibly be the worst version of myself when I’m around you.

But he went even further and criticized her appearance – “If Madonna had any common sense, she would have made a record like Ray of Light, stayed away from the dance stuff and just been a great pop singer and made great pop records, which she does brilliantly.

She was a c*** to me.”
Osbourne did not regret her comment later on either – “[Christina Aguilera] called me fat for years. One night on Fashion Police I said, “F**k you. Now you’re fat too.” I didn’t say I wasn’t fat.

You see that and you think 'What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f***ing idiot on television and then you’ll pay me millions.'”

While that sounds lovely, Malik couldn’t just leave it at that. He had to trash talk his ex-fiancee, Edwards. He said – “I need a challenge. Also, I like girls that are a bit chunky in certain areas – the nice areas. I like a fuller woman. I enjoy an intellectual conversation as well, where someone can construct a sentence beyond what hair and makeup they’re wearing, and talk about something political or about the world. I like an opinion.”

Madonna is one of the biggest pop stars of our time. To many, she is the ultimate queen of pop. However, others don’t find her that talented. For example, when Lady Gaga was compared to Madonna she made it clear that she didn't like being compared to the queen of pop.
Gaga said – “Madonna and I are very different. I don’t mean to disrespect Madonna, she’s a nice lady, and she’s had a fantastic huge career, biggest pop star of all time. But I play a lot of instruments. I write all my own music. I spend hours and hours a day in the studio. I’m a producer. I’m a writer. What I do is different. I’m not afraid of my flaws.” Ouch.
