5 Best Celebrity Feuds, Featuring Taylor Swift and Katy Perry

Happy Labor Day

There's nothing like a great celebrity feud! They're juicy and funny and embarrassing and, sometimes, downright nasty — and they make us all glad we aren't involved. Here are 5 of the greatest celebrity feuds in recent memory.

Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry

If the rumors are to be believed, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift are feuding, like, right now. Though the two have previously appeared to be on friendly terms — Google "Katy Perry Taylor Swift" and you'll see a slew of images from various outings and award shows — things maybe aren't so great between them. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Taylor Swift talked about "Bad Blood," one of the tracks from her forthcoming album 1989. The single, according to Swift, is about a fellow female artist.

In the interview, Swift said, "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'" But then, last year the unnamed artist did something that made them into "straight-up enemies," Swift said. "And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I'm surprisingly non-confrontational — you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It's awkward, and I don't like it."

People had plenty of guesses about which star Swift was hinting at, until...

Katy Perry sent out this tweet a few hours after Swift's story went live. Could be completely coincidental, but it probably isn't.

Eastern Michigan Football vs. a Brick Wall: Who Ya Got?

The Eastern Michigan Eagles football team opened their season on Saturday and wanted to make a big entrance in front of their home fans by sledgehammering a brick wall during pregame introductions. Unfortunately, it was a failed effort. Apparently, the organizers of this entrance did not take into account that brick walls are actually pretty tough to knock down.

10 Best Celebrity Ice Bucket Challenge Videos

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge seems to have taken on a life of its own within the celebrity world. Every day, new videos surface of celebs and public figures drenching themselves in ice-cold water, while simaltenously calling out other celebs and public figures to do the same. It's fun AND it's for a good cause (as I like to assume every single one of these people has also opted to donate a large sum of money to ALS).

Here are 10 of the best challenge videos that have surfaced over the last few days, starting with...

#1 - Chris Pratt

Chris Pratt, in general, is seeking world domination right now. For "Parks and Rec" fans, this is a longtime coming. There's really no one better to kick off this list.

What's in Matthew McConaughey's Fanny Pack?

Matthew McConaughey is single-handedly trying to bring back the fanny pack. And, I guess, if ever there were a person to try, Matthew McConaughey is the man for the job.

It started when he was spotted at Fenway Park wearing a fanny pack. Was this fashion choice ironic? Was it legit? The only way to find out was to ask. McConaughey revealed that he's totally serious about his fanny packs, guys.

In the interview, he said: "I'm not afraid of the fanny pack. Instead of stuffing your pockets... you kind of got to put it on the side to make it look a little not-as-nerdy, but still, practicality wins out. I've got so much gear in here that I don't want in my pockets, I'm not afraid of the fanny pack."

TicketNetwork.com has definitely been a proponent of fanny packs (we even hosted a "Bring Back the Pack" contest back in the day). Thankfully, McConaughey is doing the legwork for us.

But what's inside of that fanny pack? Here are some of my theories...

Are Jay Z and Beyonce Divorcing? (A Complete Guide)

Are Jay Z and Beyonce Divorcing

It's a question many have been wondering, especially since the elevator incident: are Jay Z and Beyonce splitting up? Here, I'll break down everything surrounding the billionaire couple, rumors, speculation, and fans included, so you can become the resident Jay Z and Beyonce expert at your next family party/company event/watercooler conversation.

The Elevator Incident

This is really what started the whole 'Jay/Bey are done' rumors. It happened back in May, when some security footage leaked from a Met Gala after-party. There's no audio in the video, but it clearly showed Jay Z, Beyonce, and Solange (Beyonce's sister) on an elevator. Solange was yelling, and then she went after Jay Z. Theories behind why the bizarre 'incident' took place include:

1.) Jay Z cheated on Beyonce with Rihanna.

2.) Jay Z cheated on Beyonce with Rachel Roy.

3.) Jay Z was with Rachel Roy back in the day, and bragged about it the night of the Met Gala.

4.) Jay Z disrespected Beyonce in some way, cheating or otherwise, and Solange was sticking up for her.

5.) Solange's behavior that night is normal for her.

6.) Blue Ivy is actually Solange's daughter and now she wants custody?

7.) Solange's kid is actually Jay Z's and she's tired of hiding it?

8.) Solange and Jay Z were arguing over something Illuminati-related?

As you can see, things start to get weird, fast. This doesn't even include the joke theories! That said, all we officially know is what the three of them have said — essentially nothing.

Yet that hasn't stopped rumors from circulating that Jay Z and Beyonce are definitely, probably, maybe going to break up, separate, renew their vows, have another kid, or divorce soon, in the future, or never.
