"Battle of the Titans": 8 star couples who can't stand each other...

Musicians are known for their outrageous behavior, from throwing televisions out hotel room windows to outlandish costumes that make headlines far more often than their music. However, if there is one thing that stars across the musical spectrum have proven their superpowers at, it's feuding!

Sir Elton John!

From the ridiculously small to the tragic and even deadly, in today's article we've compiled 8 of the brightest scandals in the history of the music industry!

8. Axl Rose vs. Kurt Cobain

At first, Axl Rose really respected both Cobain and Nirvana in general. But after Cobain mentioned in an interview that he didn't like Guns N Roses, Rose called him during one of his own concerts, saying a lot of nasty things about Kurt and his wife Courtney Love...

When the musicians eventually came face to face, they managed to remain polite. That wasn't the case with their girlfriends and bandmates, who got into an altercation right at the MTV Awards.

7. Noel Gallagher v. Liam Gallagher

In fact, Oasis broke up when the Gallagher brothers found it difficult to work and even live together... And during the "separation" their negativity towards each other only increased... Noel accused Liam of laziness and arrogance, while Liam said that Noel "got conceited", refusing to appear at events which, in his opinion, were below him...

6. Prince vs. Michael Jackson

The feud between two of pop music's biggest idols actually began because of their shared talent. In 1982 Jackson's album slightly surpassed Prince's album in sales, leading the latter to release Purple Rain and causing Jackson to worry about losing his status as the king of pop music.

Jackson even invited Prince to cooperate with him several times, but was refused both times... Then Prince tried to apologize for his behavior, but this led to Jackson calling him a "miser. The two never reconciled until his death...

5. Taylor Swift vs. Kanye West

The feud between Taylor Swift and Kanye West is one of the most well-documented in the history of pop music! Mostly because it is still massively demonstrated to this day, either on social media or publicly in front of thousands of people. And it all started with the infamous moment when West interrupted the singer's victory speech at the VMAs, saying that Beyoncé should have won instead.

Afterward, they seemed to forget about the drama until West released an insulting song about Swift...

4. Elton John v. Madonna

Elton John

Elton John has never had any serious problems with anyone, and his easygoing nature is half of what has made him such a popular public figure. But John's tendency to say exactly what's on his mind has often prevented him from getting along with other pop stars. Especially those who are easily offended.

Madonna in her youth

John called Madonna's Bond theme track "the worst Bond theme ever"! On top of that, he repeatedly stated that the singer has had too many plastic surgeries on her lips, which apparently makes it difficult for her to sing properly...

3. Marilyn Manson v. My Chemical Romance

Marilyn Manson never needed any competition to boost his presence in the headlines! However, that didn't stop him from hitting on My Chemical Romance when they were at the height of their popularity!

Manson called their performances "nothing," and even more than that, he wrote a whole track about the guys! Not in good faith, of course...

My Chemical Romance

In response, lead singer Gerard Way diplomatically stated that My Chemical Romance never received any criticism to worry about because it never came from anyone who mattered to them...

2. Kid Rock vs. Tommy Lee

The split between Kid Rock and Tommy Lee is one of the strongest and most violent on this list! And unlike the others, it has more to do with romance than with any intellectual or musical differences.

In fact, model Pamela Anderson married and had children with Tommy Lee before she married Kid Rock... However, during the divorce, a real "Santa Barbara" began between the trio! Accusations of stalking, cursing, threats - whatever was there... This led to Lee intentionally jumping into Rock's shoes while he was away at the VMAs, which led to a real fight during the live broadcast!

Tupac v. Biggie

Tupac Shakur

The feud between Tupac and Biggie is by far the biggest in the history of the music industry, and also the deadliest... It also led to a nationwide rivalry between rap fans on both the east and west coasts. And it all started out as an attempt at cooperation, not rivalry... But nothing good came of it.


It's worth adding that they released several diss tracks aimed at each other. In the end they were both shot a few months apart...
