A side of shade, heavy on the Taylor Swift please.
We are still SHOOK from witnessing Taylor Swift's Look What You Made Me Do for the first 563 times. Srsly.
But how does it compare to the other shady diss tracks that celebs from Katy Perry to Mariah Cary have released about their fellow famous folk?
15. Selena Gomez: The Heart Wants What It Wants – Justin Bieber
Diss lyrics: ‘But I didn't realize that I-I-I feeling so confident, Feeling so great about myself, And then it just be completely shattered, By one thing, by something so stupid, But then you make me feel crazy, You make me feel like it's my fault’
After Selena and Justin broke up for good, Sels penned the track to explain why she had continued to go back to him for so long. Whereas she doesn’t slate him as hard as she probably could have, she does mention the mind games that broke her down.
14. Ed Sheeran: Don’t – Ellie Goulding
Diss lyrics: ‘On my hotel door, I don't even know if she knows what for, She was crying on my shoulder, I already told ya, Trust and respect is what we do this for, I never intended to be next, But you didn't need to take him to bed, that's all, And I never saw him as a threat, Until you disappeared with him to have sex, of course, It's not like we were both on tour, We were staying on the same f*cking hotel floor’
Although he has never confirmed who this song was about, Ed’s fans are convinced he wrote it about Ellie Goulding after it was rumoured that she had slept with Niall Horan while the pair were dating, and according to Ed’s song, while they were all in the same hotel. Ouch.
13. Taylor Swift: We are never getting back together – Jake Gyllenhall
Diss lyrics: ‘Remember when we broke up the first time, Saying, "This is it, I've had enough, " 'cause like, We hadn't seen each other in a month, When you said you needed space. (What?), Then you come around again and say, "Baby, I miss you and I swear I'm gonna change, trust me.", Remember how that lasted for a day?, I say, "I hate you, " we break up, you call me, "I love you."
There’s been a ton of speculation about which of Taylor’s famous exes this was written about butm ost people tend to land on the actor Jake. The actor playing Tay's love interest in the video is wearing a scarf similar to the one Taylor was pictured wearing of Jake's when they were a thing.
12. Justin Timberlake: Cry Me A river – Britney Spears
Diss lyrics: 'I know that they say, That some things are better left unsaid, It wasn't like you only talked to him and you know it, (Don't act like you don't know it), All of these things people told me, Keep messing with my head, (Messing with my head), You should've picked honesty, Then you may not have blown it'
After Britney cheated on Justin, ending their relationship, he penned the song to let her know just how hurt he was. He used a Britney look-a-like in the video which the world went MAD for when it was first released.
11. Big Sean: I Don’t F*ck With You – Naya Rivera
Diss lyrics: 'I heard you got a new man, I see you takin' a pic, Then you post it up, thinkin' that it's makin' me sick, brr, brr, I see you calling, I be makin' it quick, I'mma answer that shit like "I don't fuck with you'
Sean went for a highschool vibe in the video for IDFWY, an obvious nod to his ex-fiancee’s role in Glee where she played a cheerleader. The pair were engaged until it all went south and she accused him of stealing his Rolex and he insisted he broke it off because of her jealousy.
10. Tyga: Playboy – Kylie Jenner
Diss lyrics: ‘She a superstar, got it bad for me / If I hang up, she call right back to me / You cut her legs off, she crawls right back to me.’
When Tyga and Kylie split, he immediately wrote the track which implied that he could get Kylie back whenever he wanted. According to sources, Kylie thought this was hilarious as she was dating Travis Scott and Tyga was always the one texting her.
9. Pink: Stupid Girls – Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson
Diss lyrics: ‘What happened to the dreams of a girl president, She's dancing in the video next to 50 Cent, They travel in packs of two or three, With their itsy bitsy doggies and their teeny-weeny tees, Where, oh where, have the smart people gone?’
Pink’s video for Stupid Girls totally slated the it-girls on the early 2000s like Paris Hilton and Jessica Simpson. She dressed like them, in blonde wigs and carried around a tiny dog which was Paris Hilton’s signature move. She also recreated Jessica’s Duke’s Of Hazards video complete with tiny Daisy Duke shorts.
8. Mariah Carey: Obsessed – Eminem
Diss lyrics: ‘Will the real M-C please step to the mic?, M-C you need an M-C, place to be M-C the M-C, All up in the blogs, sayin' we met at the bar, When I don't even, know who you are, Sayin' we up in your house, sayin' I'm up in your car, But you in LA, and I'm out at Jermaine's, I'm up in the A, you're so so lame’
One of the best beefs of all time has to be Mariah and Eminem after the rapper alleged that the pair had slept together. She was livid and fired back in the press and in song that this was definitely not the case. In case anyone was confused about who the tune was about he used his famous lyrics ‘would the real Slim Shady please stand up’ and turned them into her own.
7. Taylor Swift: Dear John – John Mayer
Diss lyrics: ‘You are an expert at sorry, And keeping lines blurry, Never impressed by me acing your tests. All the girls that you've run dry have tired lifeless eyes, Cause you've burned them out’
Everyone was a little surprised when Taylor dated John but no one was that shocked when he broke up with her and she penned a heartbroken track about it. She references his long list of exes that he has ‘run dry’ who have included Jennifer Aniston, Katy Perry and Jessica Simpson.
6. Miley Cyrus 7 Things – Nick Jonas
Diss lyrics: ‘The 7 things I hate about you (oh you), You're vain, your games, you're insecure, You love me, you like her, You make me laugh, you make me cry, I don't know which side to buy, Your friends they're jerks, When you act like them, just know it hurts’
Miley wrote in her memoir Miley Cyrus: Miles To Go that she had written the song about Nick to ‘punish him, to get him back for hurting me’ after he broke her heart.
5. Eminem: The Warning – Mariah Carey
Diss lyrics: ‘Wow Mariah, didn't expect you to go balls out. B*tch shut the f*ck up before I put all them phone calls out you made to my house when was Wild'n Out before Nick. When you was on my d*ck and give you something to smile about.’
In classic Eminem style he wasn’t shy about naming and shaming the celeb he was singing about. Continuing their infamous feud, he insisted that they pair had had sex before she got together with her now ex-husband Nick Cannon.
4. Beyonce: Sorry – Jay-Z and Becky With The Good Hair
Diss lyrics: ‘Looking at my watch he should've been home, Today I regret the night I put that ring on, He always got them fucking excuses, I pray to the Lord you reveal what his truth is’
Beyonce’s Lemonade was pretty much an album of shade but it was Sorry that everyone gasped at. With references to Jay-Z’s cheating after that elevator incident with her sister Solange, she also named Becky With The Good Hair and said he should go back to her.
3. Taylor Swift: Bad Blood – Katy Perry
Diss lyrics: ‘Did you think we'd be fine? Still got scars on my back from your knife, So don't think it's in the past, these kinda wounds they last and they last.’
After Taylor and Katy’s drama exploded, Taylor penned the song to blame Katy for their fight. Taylor had accused Katy of stealing dancers from her tour to work on Katy’s causing Katy to tweet that she was ‘a wolf in sheep’s clothing’. Bad Blood was Taylor’s diss to Katy, cementing their feud.
2. Katy Perry: Swish Swish – Taylor Swift
Diss lyrics: ‘Your game is tired, You should retire, You're 'bout as cute as, An old coupon expired, And karma's not a liar, She keeps receipts’
Ramping up the beef, Katy released Swish Swish which has multiple obvious references to Taylor including Kim and Kanye’s receipts, her sheep tweet and lyrics from Nicki Minaj which fans thought referenced her drama with Taylor when Tay mistakenly shaded Nicki.
1.Taylor Swift: Look What You Made Me Do – Katy Perry, Tom Hiddleston, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and more
Diss lyrics: ‘The world moves on, another day, another drama, drama, But not for me, not for me, all I think about is karma, And then the world moves on, but one thing's for sure, Maybe I got mine, but you'll all get yours’
The song that blew up the celeb world. While the lyrics don’t reference anyone in particular, the video is a different story. She talks about Kim’s receipts, wears the dress from the VMA’s when Kanye stormed her award, says the famous line ‘I would like to be excluded from this narrative, references Katy’s Perry’s tiger and dressed like the singer and has her dancers wear 'I heart TS' tops in a nod to Tom. Plus a million other things including bathing in $10m worth of diamonds which fans think reference Kim's Paris robbery. SHADE.
