The entertainment world's best just can’t seem to get along. From Twitter, to print, to the streets, A-listers got into fights everywhere this year. Here's a look back at eight of the craziest fights, social media bashings and all-out brawls of 2014:
Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry
These two songstresses are rumored to have used their music, high-profile magazine interviews and social media to bash one another in 2014. Their supposed feud started after Taylor Swift hinted that "Bad Blood," a single from her album “1989,” was based on her tumultuous relationship with “Roar” singer Katy Perry.
“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not," Swift told Rolling Stone in September without mentioning Perry by name. "She would come up to me at awards show and say something and walk away, and I would be like, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?”
Swift went on in the piece to accuse the unnamed individual of making a business foul. “She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour,” Swift said. “She hired a bunch of people out from under me. ... So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.”
Despite not being explicitly named in the interview, Perry retaliated by posting this telling tweet: “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing,” she said, a reference to the 2004 comedy “Mean Girls.”
Solange vs. Jay Z
Who didn’t hear about Jay Z and Solange Knowles’ elevator brawl? In what was possibly the most violent celebrity fight of the year, Solange kicked and swung at her sister Beyoncé's husband in May in an elevator at the Standard Hotel in New York after the Met Gala. A video of the incident was published by TMZ. In reports, speculation on the cause of the fight ranged from cheating to substance abuse rumors, but no clear reason was ever revealed. While it appears both parties have since settled their issues — Jay Z and Beyoncé attended Solange’s wedding in November — it’s hard to forget that family feud.
Abby Lee Miller vs. Kelly Hyland
“Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller and dance mom Kelly Hyland’s physical confrontation aired on Lifetime in early 2014, but the reality-TV pair are still engaged in a feud to this day. Following the violent incident at a dance competition in New York in November 2013, the two are now going head to head in court. Not only are Hyland and her two daughters no longer cast members on the hit Lifetime series, part of their lawsuit against Miller was tossed out by a judge.
Hyland most recently slammed Miller following the release of the Season 5 trailer for “Dance Moms.” In the teaser, one of the other moms accuses Hyland of purposefully trying to “destroy” Miller. In response, Hyland tweeted this message Dec. 14: "If I wanted to ruin anyone, I would have done a ‘Tell All’ a year ago. I have A LOT to tell.”
Drake vs. P. Diddy
P. Diddy used his fists instead of his words to hash out his issues with fellow rapper Drake. The two performers got into a heated scuffle at LIV nightclub in Miami Beach this month because of the success of Drake’s song “0 to 100/ The Catch Up,” according to TMZ. The single, created by producer Boi-1da, was reportedly first given to Diddy, but when he “sat” on the song, Drake took it for himself. While the track has earned him two Grammy nominations, it also landed Drake in the ER with a shoulder injury. “You’ll never disrespect me again,” Diddy reportedly said before hitting Drake. It looks like all's fair in love and hip-hop.
Justin Bieber vs. Orlando Bloom
Justin Bieber’s alleged comments to Orlando Bloom about his ex-wife, model Miranda Kerr, landed the two stars in a heated battle in July. A video obtained by TMZ showed the singer taunting the “Pirates of the Caribbean” actor until the latter “threw a punch.” Reports suggested their clash, which occurred at a celebrity hot spot in Ibiza, Spain, was fueled by Bieber’s “rude comment” about Kerr. Prior to their fight, it was speculated that Bieber had had an affair with the Victoria’s Secret model.
“Justin was at one table and Orlando was at another,” a source told the New York Post. “But when Bieber and his party were later walking past Bloom’s table, Orlando refused to shake Bieber’s hand ... Bieber said something rude to Orlando, like, ‘She was good.’ ”
Perez Hilton vs. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga and celebrity blogger Perez Hilton’s feud escalated dramatically in 2014. After Gaga spoke out about the end of their friendship in November 2013, stating that their feud started after he asked her a “terrible” and “negative” interview question about her music on camera, Hilton fired back in June. During an appearance on Australia’s “Mornings,” Hilton said he believed the “Born This Way” singer used him to get famous.
“It made me really question and re-evaluate my entire ‘friendship’ with her,” he said. “I think it was fame that just poisoned her.”
Snoop Dogg vs. Iggy Azalea
Snoop Dogg’s decision in October to compare rapper Iggy Azalea’s physical appearance to Marlon Wayans' character in the 2004 comedy “White Chicks” sparked a feud. After days of going toe to toe on Twitter following the slam, it was ultimately the "Fancy" performer who came out on top. On Halloween, Azalea posted photos of herself dressed up as -- you guessed it, one of the “White Chicks.” Take that, Snoop Dogg!
Iggy Azalea vs. Azealia Banks
Snoop Dogg wasn’t Iggy’s only enemy of 2014. The Australian performer is currently engaged in a media and all-out Twitter war with fellow rap star Azealia Banks. Following Azalea's silence on the controversial court proceedings of the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases, Banks slammed her for not standing up for the black community.
“It's funny to see people like Igloo Australia silent when these things happen,” Banks wrote in early December. “Black culture is cool, but black issues sure aren’t, huh?”
Azalea's response: “There’s more to sparking a change than trolling on social media. Make sure you do something to let YOUR government know how you feel when something is unjust, not JUST your followers on Twitter.”
Two weeks later, in a radio interview with Hot 97, Banks slammed Azalea again, who then took to Twitter and called the "212" performer a bigot, saying she doesn’t have the “mental capacity” to understand her issues.
"Special msg for banks: There are many black artists succeeding in all genres. The reason you haven't is because of your piss poor attitude,” Azalea wrote, according to Us Weekly. "Your inability to be responsible for your own mistakes, bullying others, the inability to be humble or self control. It's YOU!"
