We are not the only ones capable of throwing shade at the people who annoy us on social media, Candy Girls. These celebrities prove that they're just like us. The difference? They do that not only on social media, but also in interviews and even in speeches!

  1. Taylor Swift at Kanye West

Remember the major controversy that surrounded Kanye's "Famous"? If you do then you must also remember when Tay-Tay sounded like she's throwing some shade at him during her acceptance speech at the Grammy Awards for her Album of the Year win for 1989.

  1. Katy Perry at Taylor Swift

When T-Swizzle revealed that "Bad Blood" was about a fellow female pop star, Katy came out with this epic tweet—which made Twitterverse go gaga of course as they knew it was about Tay-Tay.

  1. Selena Gomez at Justin Bieber

During her appearance at The David Letterman Show, Sel threw major shade at her ex when David told him he made the "Purpose" hitmaker cry. Oh em!

  1. Zayn at Perrie Edwards

In his interview with Billboard, the ex-One Direction member seemed to throw some shade at his ex, Perrie, when he talked about his ideal relationship and woman.

"I need a challenge. Also, I like girls that are a bit chunky in certain areas—the nice areas. I like a fuller woman," he told the magazine. "I enjoy an intellectual conversation as well, where someone can construct a sentence beyond what hair and makeup they’re wearing, and talk about something political or about the world. I like an opinion."

  1. Emma Watson at 50 Shades of Grey

Before the movie adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey came out, there were reports going around that Emma is playing Anastasia Steele. She clearly didn't like it and addressed the issue on Twitter.

  1. Gregg Sulkin at Bella Thorne

After their split, Bella underwent a ton of transformations. She announced she's bisexual, made out with her brother's ex-girlfriend, and dated Gregg's friend Tyler Posey at that time. He responded with the tweet above. Yikes!

  1. Taylor Swift at Justin Bieber

Remember this classic GIF of Tay making that **face** when Sel and Justin saw each other at the backstage of the 2013 Billboard Music Awards? Nothing beats this still. 


  1. Hailey Baldwin at Selena Gomez

When news came out that Selena and Bella Hadid's ex The Weeknd have gotten together, Hailey (who was also once linked to Justin Bieber!) got creative at throwing some shade at Sel.

  1. Mariah Carey at Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande

During her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the singer revealed that she didn't know Ari, who's always been compared to her, and Demi, who threw shade at her on Twitter. 

  1. Jennifer Lawrence at Justin Bieber

During her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, a caller asked her whether she'd hook up with Justin. Her answer? "I would say a hard no." OMG!
