There is one thing certain in life, and that's the fact that we won't get along with everyone. It doesn't even matter who you are. But as a mere mortal, our grievances are usually kept private — unless you're a celebrity, of course.

When it comes to that, the whole world is a witness. When two or more famous people have a beef with each other, they air their dirty laundry for everyone to see. And the following are some now infamous celebrity feuds.

Taylor Swift And Katy Perry

Here's to one of the most famous pop music feuds. These two held a grudge against each other after Swift accused Perry of trying to steal her backup dancers during Swift's Red tour. Perry later tweeted: "Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing..."

Swift then went on to release a track called "Bad Blood," which pretty much referenced the feud. Perry's rebuttal came in the form of her track, "Swish Swish." The feud finally ended with Perry sending Swift a literal olive branch, and she later appeared in Taylor's "You Need To Calm Down" video, ha, ha.

Chelsea Handler And Angelina Jolie

It's no secret that Chelsea Handler is a huge friend of Jennifer Aniston. Jennifer was still married to Brad Pitt when he was rumored to have fallen in love with Angelina Jolie. Chelsea started badmouthing Angelina over the split and really took it to a new level. Apparently, she now regrets her mean comments.

Gwenyth Paltrow And Martha Stewart

We all know that Martha Stewart is the original lifestyle queen. Am I right? So when Gwyneth Paltrow launched her Goop website, Stewart dissed it by saying, "She wants to be a lifestyle arbiter. Fine. Good. I think I started this whole category of lifestyle." She later made fun of Gwyneth and Chris Martin's whole "conscious uncoupling" quote. Paltrow then posted a recipe for a “Jailbird Cake” on her website, ha, ha.

Paris Hilton And Lindsay Lohan

These two started out as pals, but things quickly went south when Lindsay claimed that Paris threw a drink at her. In 2019 Paris called Lindsay "lame" and "embarrassing."

Anyway, things seem to have cooled off between the two, and they're apparently friends again as Paris has stated that they have grown up and put their high-school antics behind them.

George Clooney And Russell Crowe

It's not just women who seem to hate on each other. Grown men have had dumb feuds, too. Take George Clooney and Russel Crowe, for example. Crowe accused Clooney of "selling out" by appearing in TV commercials, for which Clooney said he should apologize.

Apparently, Crowe tried to do that by sending Clooney a CD of his music alongside some poetry, but that didn't go over too well, hee-hee. The two still don't like each other.

Debra Messing And Susan Sarandon

We all don't necessarily share the same political views, and it can't be more apparent than the feud between Debra Messing and Susan Sarandon. The two went head-to-head numerous times on Twitter during the 2016 presidential election. Sarandon, a Bernie Sanders supporter, often took aim at Messing for rooting for Hilary Clinton.

Kim Kardashian And Tyson Beckford

If you body-shame Kim Kardashian, you better believe she will have something to say about it. Apparently, that's what Tyson Beckford did when he criticized her body and implied that she'd had plastic surgery.

Kanye West And Jay-Z

Apparently, Kanye West got upset at this friend Jay-Z for not calling him after Kim Kardashian was held at gunpoint and robbed. He also complained that their kids never get to play with Blue Ivy. Then, Jay-Z defended himself saying that his lyrics on the 2017 album were “not a diss” against West. However, he did confirm that there was still a conflict between the two because West brought Jay-Z's family into it all. Oh my!

Corey Taylor And Chad Kroeger

The two butted heads in June 2017 when Nickelback frontman Kroeger called Slipknot a “gimmick” and referred to the band as “Nickelback Lite.” Then Taylor retaliated by saying that Kroeger has “a face like a foot." He also mused that “All I know is I’ve been voted ‘Sexiest Dude in Rock’ [while] wearing a mask. You’ve been voted ‘Ugliest Dude in Rock’ twice without one.” OMG!

Giuliana Rancic And Zendaya

Fashion Police's Giuliana Rancic is known for her blunt critisism of celebrities' looks on the red carpet. However, she took it too far when she said Zendaya's 2015 Oscar dreadlocks looked like they smelled of "patchouli oil." Not only Zendaya, but the other co-hosts, Kelly Osbourne and Kathy Griffith, were so appalled that they both ended up leaving the show shorty after.

Jennifer Lopez And Mariah Carey

There's rumored bad blood between the two singers but Mariah Carey denied it by saying "I don't know her" when asked about Lopez by the paparazzi. She also repeated the same exact answer during a Watch What Happens Live appearance in 2016.

Lopez on the other hand has said that she would, "Love to meet her, and I would love to be friends with her. I think she's incredibly talented, and I've always been a fan of hers." Hmm.

Drake And Kanye West

These two rappers started as friends, and then it all went awry when West worked with Pusha T on his single, “Infrared” in May 2018, which called out Drake. Drake then sent West an invoice for $100K for “promotional assistance and career-reviving," ha, ha. The feud went on for a few years until the two buried the hatchet.

Vin Diesel And Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson

It's no surprise that not everybody gets along while they work on the set of a movie. The same can be said of Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. Apparently, this dates back to 2016 when Johnson discussed working with certain people who don't conduct themselves as "stand-up men". Oh, snap!

Cardi B And Nicki Minaj

Nobody can really forget this now infamous feud between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj. It all came to blows at a Hollywood party where Cardi was shouting at Minaj and later threw a shoe at her. Apparently, it all stems from Minaj questioning Cardi's parenting skills, and that didn't sit well with her. Minaj later denied any wrongdoing.

Kim Cattrall And Sarah Jessica Parker

Who here loved Sex and the City? I was following that show religiously, ha, ha. So I was definitely shocked to find out that Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall didn't get along. This long-time feud resulted in Cattrall refusing to be part of a planned SATC 3, and she didn't get invited to star in the recent revival of the show And Just Like That. Too bad, huh?

Will Smith And Chris Rock

If you watched this year's Oscars, you know all about this latest celebrity feud. As Chris Rock was doing his comedy stint, he took aim at Will Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, by referencing her hair loss due to the condition alopecia.

Smith got up from his seat, approached Rock on stage, and slapped him in the face. Needless to say, the whole audience was shocked at this odd display.

Wow, what did I tell you?

When celebrities have a feud, they surely take it up a notch, huh? I mean, can't we all just get along? Apparently, not, ha, ha. It's pretty amazing how petty some people can get when they resort to name-calling and even threatening physical violence. That's so sad. You would think with all the money and fame — they would just let it go.
