The Most Controversial Celebrity Fights of 2016

And what we can learn from them!

A lot of good things happened this year, but there were also not-so good things that trended online—like celebrity feuds. 2016 is almost over but we're still not over these fights that rocked the entertainment world, TBH.

  1. Taylor Swift vs. Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West

After Kanye's hit song "Famous" came out, which involved misogynistic lines mentioning Taylor, a fight ensued between the two parties. However, the West party revealed that they actually got approval from T-Swizzle via phone call which she denied, saying that she was "never made aware" of the exact lyrics and even cautioned him about how people may perceive the song. During her acceptance speech at the Grammy Awards, Tay even took a shot at Kanye.

However, during Kim's GQ magazine cover interview, she said that Taylor was lying and that there's a video to prove it. She later snapped parts of the controversial phone conversation, while Tay shared her statement about the matter on Instagram. She lay low since the incident. 

What we can learn from them: Keep the receipts...But not for bad intention or public-shaming, okay? Keep them so when the time comes that you have to confront each other for what happened, you have something to guide you in making your stand and dealing with the whole issue.

  1. Taylor Swift vs. Calvin Harris

After their breakup, we thought everything was actually okay between the two of them...until Tay was spotted with Tom Hiddleston. Calvin then deleted his statement on the breakup on Twitter and they went on to delete their memories on their Instagram profiles.

Things even got messier when Tay's rep revealed that she wrote the song "This Is What You Came For" under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg. The music producer took this as Tay's camp trying to make him look bad. He aired his side in a series of tweets, saying, "I figure if you're happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex-BF down for something to do...I know you're off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy [Perry] ETC but I'm not that guy, sorry. I won't allow it."

What you can learn from them: End relationships well and try to stop talking about it after. Respect the other person enough to not spread lies and nasty rumors about them even when you've already ended what you have, no matter on what note you've left it on.

  1. Chloe Grace Moretz vs. Kim Kardashian-West and Khloe Kardashian

The outspoken Chloe tweeted her thoughts about the controversial Taylor-Kim-Kanye feud, saying, "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." Then Khloe decided to reply to her with a nearly nekkid selfie and explained that she actually doesn't want to bully anyone, unless it involves her family and sisters.

What you can learn from them: Address issues well and make your stand clear. Don't attack the other person just because they oppose what you stand for. Learn how to argue well with them instead.

  1. Demi Lovato vs. Nicki Minaj

During this year's Met Ball, Nicki shared a photo of her, Moschino director Jeremmy Scott, and Demi. The issue? The "Anaconda" hitmaker didn't tag Demi in the photo. You'd think this was nothing but things went cray when she shared the photo above. The "Confidence" hitmaker later edited her caption saying it was nothing but a joke. (via ETOnline.com)

What we can learn from them: Learn to deal with jokes, especially because there are a ton of that circulating on the Internet.

  1. Selena Gomez vs. Justin Bieber

The drama in Jelena land got a bit messy this year when Sel criticized Justin for posting photos of him and Sofia Richie. They allegedly replied to each other's comments via Instagram which even involved the Biebs allegedly accusing Sel of cheating on him with Zayn Malik. Justin later deleted his Instagram account, while Sel apologized on Snapchat, saying, "What I said was selfish and pointless." (via DailyMail.co.uk)

What we can learn from them: Let go of whatever it is that happened in the past. There is nothing you can do about it. No matter how much you care about the other person, you're not in the position to air your side anymore of what they're doing with their lives.

Hi. These are just my thoughts that I put into words during this quarantine. I also miss the beach so much so I'm attaching the photo I took during my last beach trip. Thanks and stay safe! ???? ----

Lately, it has been a roller coaster ride of emotions. You were happy and then you just found yourself feeling empty and lost the next day. Sometimes, it occurs all at once. All the aversion and the doubts, the frustration, the feeling of not feeling anything but sadness. It's all gonna drown you. And it's not gonna be easy. You're gonna question all that you're doing- if in any case, you're achieving anything or if you're succeeding with the path that you take. You wonder if you're now heading to the right direction or still lost and wandering. We all fight these kind of thoughts and struggles.

In life, you can never be happy and content at all times. All the broken pieces will remain to be broken. You're still gonna breakdown at some point; you're still gonna cry. But don't be hopeless. Even though life is throwing you with so many reasons to give up, please fight. Don't be hopeless. I'm gonna agree with you, if you'll say "it's not easy" But none of the things that are worthwhile in life is ever easy.
