We feel like celebrity beefs have gotten increasingly random lately. Has anyone else noticed this? We blame Twitter, just like we blame Twitter for the current beef between Ice-T and Rush Limbaugh. Well…okay, we blame Twitter and Rush Limbaugh. “He knew the word ‘tyranny.’ And he knows that tyranny comes from government representatives. Double impressive,” the conservative radio host joked about Ice-T, after the rapper used the word while defending gun ownership. “Rush Limbaugh said he was impressed I knew the word ‘tyranny’… He’s a racist piece of sh–,” Ice-T replied on (where else?) Twitter. Jeez, Rush, why are you ripping on someone who agrees with you? And Ice, why are you listening to anything that Rush Limbaugh has to say? Of course, when it comes to celebrity beef, there’s no reasoning with anyone. If there way, how would you explain all the absurd celebrity beefs that have come before?
Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell vs. Justin Bieber
Who would have guessed? “The music and the parties and the paparazzi, I mean, it’s like living in Lebanon now,” Shepard griped about the Biebs while on The View today. Admitted fiance Bell, “In his defense, I will say we don’t know the exact house the music is coming from. We just know since he moved in, the music has been blaring.” Oh, please fire back, Justin! Or just crank “Boyfriend” and cruise by at 3:00am!
Dominic Monaghan vs. Matthew Fox
“[H]e beats women. not isolated incidents,” Dominic Monaghan tweeted about former costar Fox. This beef isn’t random because it’s trivial; it’s random because it implies there were a lot of extremely awkward moments on the Lost set we had never heard about…until now.
Snooki vs. Tan Mom
Sometimes “most random” can also mean “the best,” as when the Jersey Shore star and…uh…supertan mom got into it over the relative repulsiveness of their tans, parenting decisions, etc.
Bruce Willis vs. Kevin Smith
Remember when Kevin Smith directed Bruce Willis in Cop Out, then later declared the actor the “unhappiest, most bitter and meanest emo-b— I ever met at any job I’ve held” in his memoir? Yeah. Super rando.
Jon Hamm vs. Kim Kardashian
Don Draper may or may not have cited Kim Kardashian as an example of when “being a f—ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.” Kim came back with a retort as classy as is humanly possible…when it comes to these beefs. “Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is a part of a successful TV show, produces, writes, designs, and creates, ‘stupid,’ is in my opinion careless,” she shot back. Truth.
January Jones vs. Zach Galifianakis
“[I]f I remember correctly, she and I were very rude to each other. It was crazy. I was at a party. I’d never met her and she was like, ‘Come sit down.’ So I sit at her table and talk for 10 minutes, and she goes, ‘I think it’s time for you to leave now.’ So I say, ‘January, you are an actress in a show and everybody’s going to forget about you in a few years, so f–king be nice,’ and I got up and left. And she thinks that’s funny?” the comedian told TheShortList.com about the Mad Men star while promoting The Hangover Part II. Due to it’s total and complete randomness, we’re going to declare this our favorite celeb beef of all time .
