Kim Kardashian West and Taylor Swift went back and forth about the lyrics in Kanye West’s song “Famous.” Though Kardashian West said that Swift had approved the lyrics and released a video to sort of prove it, Swift said she was not made aware of all the lyrics, especially the “that bitch” line.
Kanye West dissed Justin Timberlake during a concert by saying he had “love for Hov” but he “ain’t fucking with that suit and tie. Remind me again why we in this shit?” Well, Timberlake sure reminded him. During an SNL performance of his song “Suit & Tie,” Timberlake changed the lyrics just for West, singing, “My hits so sick/Got rappers acting dramatic.”
Several fans wanted Jessica Williams to take over for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show prior to Trevor Noah landing the gig. While Williams appreciated the support, she didn’t appreciate one journalist who said she needed to be more aggressive in her career.
Mo’Nique maintained that Empire director Lee Daniels had originally offered her the role of Cookie. When Daniels tried to deny the claims, Mo’Nique read her e-mails from Daniels on the radio to prove she was telling the truth.
Chloë Grace Moretz and Khloé Kardashian got into it after Moretz posted on Twitter, “Everyone in this industry needs to get their heads out of a hole and look around to realize what’s ACTUALLY happening in the REAL world. Stop wasting your voice on something so petulant and unimportant.”
Kardashian didn’t take too kindly to the tweet and responded with a photo of a girl whose backside is exposed to the camera — a girl she, presumably, thought was Moretz. Unfortunately for Khloé’s comeback, it was not, and Moretz was quick to set the record straight.
A journalist at the Australian Open tried to tell Serena Williams she played a match that was “scrappy” and full of “unforced errors.” Mind you, she’d just won the tournament. Williams responded just as she should have: “I think that’s a very negative thing to say. Are you serious?” She added, “Well, you should have been out there. That wasn’t very kind. You should apologize. Do you want to apologize?” Yes, yes he did.
