Everyone dabbles in a little shade every now and then. Some intentional, others…intentional. Shade and the sneakiness of it always stirs up a good ol’ pot of controversy. Last week during a radio interview, Katy Perry spoke on her upcoming collaboration with Rihanna and how she wanted it to be unlike Beyonce’ and Shakira‘s “Beautiful Liar”.
“We’ve collaborated on a lot of things, but just not songs yet. It’s one of those things that’s got so much build-up that we have to deliver,” she said during a BBC Radio 1 appearance on Monday. “I want it to be like that Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin song “Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves,” not “Beautiful Liar.” But I definitely want to do something that is so iconic.”
She’s not the first to take a stab at a fellow tabloid favorite, but many others have as well. Kelly Osbourne and Christina Aguilera have gone back and forth several times over the past couple of years referring to each others weight. The tables have turned between the two of them and it is something to notice. Mariah Carey and Eminem have taken a couple jabs at one another. Em started off by telling the public that he and Mariah had sexual relations with one another, while Mariah quickly denied every claim. That light something under Eminem’s fire and led him to write a song dedicated to her and her husband Nick Cannon.
Chris Brown just caught the wrath of Miranda Lambert. Miranda was appalled at the Grammy nods, wins, and performances Chris did and received at this year’s Grammy Awards show. Common took over Rick Ross‘ “Stay Schemin” to discuss his dislike for rapper Drake. While Ludacris ran full force for Big Sean and Drake in “Bada Boom.”
