If anything good came from the Soulja Boy vs Chris Brown beef it’s that we have a new way for celebrities to handle their beef. Shading each other on Instagram and Twitter is so 2016, we need to move on. The much hyped Boy v. Brown pay-per-view celebrity boxing match is the most brilliant and efficient way to handle ones hatred for one another. No need to take it to the streets, no more Twitter fingers, no more subtweets, just put on the gloves and go a few arounds. Simple as that.
MTV had the right idea with the popular claymation classic Celebrity Deathmatch, which pit celebrity vs celebrity in the ring with their real-life rivals to duke it out until the death. We don’t need to take it that far IRL, but a few jabs to the face could knock some sense into these famous individuals and settle their beef’s once and for all in a controlled safe environment.
Donald Trump vs. Robert De NiroGetty Images
There’s a long list of celebrities who have revealed their dislike for President-elect Donald Trump, but Robert De Niro takes the cake. After blasting Trump with insults and threatening to punch him in the face during a “Get Out And Vote” commercial, there’s no one better to take on the future president. “He talks about how he wants to punch people in the face? Well, I’d like to punch him in the face.” the actor states. “This is somebody that we want for president? I don’t think so.” It’s time for the Raging Bull star and our future POTUS to go toe-to-toe for the culture.
Azealia Banks vs. Nicki MinajGetty Images
Who hasn’t Azealia Blanks taken shots at on social media? The most notably, Nicki Minaj. Last month, Banks wrote a lengthy shade-filled note blasting Nicki on her body, music career, her ex-boyfriend Safaree, and brand image as a whole. Like Soulja Boy, Azealia is doing way to much online and needs a reality check. Who better than Queen Barbie to put her in her place.
Katy Perry vs. Taylor SwiftGetty Images
It feels like Katy Perry and Taylor Swift’s beef has been going on longer than the life cycle of Vine. It’s time to finally put this pop star feud to bed. The two became frenemies after Swift’s controversial Rolling Stone interview in 2014, which she states “oh, we’re just straight-up enemies. And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.” Whether or not if that was Perry’s intentions, the two have had bad blood for each other ever since and it needs to be resolved.
Kanye West vs. Ray JGetty Images
We thought this feud died out years ago, but it seems Ray J just can’t let go of his once upon a time boo, Kim Kardashian. The Celebrity Big Brother star recently claimed in an interview that he and Kim “were both cheaters,” and that despite rumors, they actually played each other. The sad thing about this is that their relationship was 14 years ago. She’s now happily married (despite rumors) to Kanye, who she has two kids with. On the other hand, Ray J is married to Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star Princess Love. You need to move on, Ray J.
Brandy vs. MonicaGetty Images
The most ironic beef goes to Brandy and Monica who are commonly known for their collaborated effort on the hit single “The Boy is Mine,” where the two singers duke it out for a man. The two have gone back and forth throwing subtle shots at each for years on and off Instagram and it’s time to bury the hatchet. The two made our list for beefs we want to see resolved in 2017, and a couple rounds in the ring together could finally end the turmoil.
Conor McGregor vs. Floyd MayweatherGetty Images
When different worlds collide. In one corner we have the best UFC fighter at the moment and in the other the best boxer of our time. Their beef have become very public resulting in McGregor getting his boxing license in the state of California. The world is ready for these two headline-grabbing fighters to step into the ring together. They both want it to happen. We want it to happen. So, lets make it happen.
Tyga vs. 21 SavageGetty Images
One of the most recent hip-hop beefs to come out of 2016 is between Tyga and 21 Savage. The two traded several shots on social media over Tyga’s girl, Kylie Jenner, which opened the door for a bunch of social media tough talk. Like the Chris Brown/Soulja Boy beef, let’s not bring life threatening antics into this. If you want to fight over a girl do it in the ring, and please leave it there.
Tami vs. DuffeyGetty Images
Tami is ready to put the paws on Duffey after their major brawl in Portugal during season five of Basketball Wives L.A. Things went 0 to 100 after Duffey made comments about Tami’s daughter, which led to short-lived fight on a sixth floor balcony. During the season’s reunion, Tami feels she didn’t get a fair shot at a fight with Duffey after her rival threw some cheap shots at her while being restrained by security. Tami has a solution. “I have a sponsor who could sponsor us having a boxing match where we can square up and just do it,” she states. “I want to be that prefabricated grill you got in your mouth. I want that to be handled.” To our surprise Duffey agreed. Basketball Wives L.A. is about to head to the boxing ring.
Blac Chyna vs. Kylie JennerGetty Images
Blac Chyna, Kylie Jenner, and Tyga are the craziest love triangle since Twilight, and would make for the most interesting fight of our time. The two have thrown Instagram shade one another, but there needs to be more closure. Blac Chyna has moved on to date Kylie’s brother Rob Kardashian, which the two share a son together, but it stills feels tense between the two. Chyna’s relationship with Kylie and her reality star-studded family has been rollercoaster ride to say the least, and it’s time to put all the cards on the table or in the ring for that matter.
Lil Wayne vs. BirdmanGetty Images
The father/son bond between Lil Wayne and Birdman worked perfectly throughout the years. Wayne went from a young New Orleans “hot boy” to the best rapper alive in a span of a few years. Birdman made Young Money/Cash Money one of the biggest labels out introducing the world to two of hip-hop’s best artists in the game right now (Drake and Nicki Minaj). They couldn’t be touched. Then it all came crashing down. Since 2014, Wayne has been in an on-going fight with Birdman and Cash Money to release new music. Lawsuits have been filed, shady tweets have been sent, but the drama seems to be going no where. We have an idea. Duke it out in the ring. Winner takes full control of the Wayne’s unreleased album. Simple as that. Just give us another Weezy album already.
During the season five reunion of Basketball Wives L.A., Tami challenges Duffey to a highly anticipated boxing match. Watch the video below.
