11. The Taylor & Kanye Feud
It started seven years ago when nobody expected that a seemingly innocent incident would lead to what is now a long-running feud between the two artists. They first came into contact on the stage of the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when the rapper hijacked the mike from Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech and said that Beyoncé’s video was far better than the one for which Swift got the award.
This year, more fuel was added to the fire when Kim Kardashian snapchatted a taped conversation between her man and Swift, in which the latter gives her consent about the following line in Kanye’s song Famous, “For all my Southside niggas that know me best/ I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.”
When the song was released in February, the line in question ended with “I made that bitch famous.” The “bitch” couldn’t stomach the insult and publically condemned people who “try to undercut your success.” Nobody knows for sure what exactly happened in the months between the release of the controversial song and the Snapchat reveal, and this gave people more material for speculation about the chain of events that led to this complicated beef between the two celebs.
