Today in celebrity gossip: Drake is mad at Macklemore, Queens of the Stone Age are mad at Imagine Dragons, and Mariah Carey is mad at Nicki Minaj.
As an ancient sorceress once said, "Music makes the people come together." But that only applies to regular people like you and me, not super-famous musicians. If you are a super-famous musician, music will make you super mad all the time and you will get into more beefs than someone with a sexual fetish for hamburgers. In just the past few days roughly 100% of all musicians have been talking mad trash about each other in the press. Here are but a few examples!
You may recall the night of the Grammys (I don't, not any of it) when Grammy-winning rapper Macklemore Instagrammed a personal text message he'd sent to Grammy-loser Kendrick Lamar telling him that Lamar should have won instead of him. Macklemore presumably meant to appear humble while also acknowledging what everybody knew to be obvious: Kendrick Lamar was robbed. But most people agreed that it was very tacky for Macklemore to have done this, and that brings us to the reverberations of celebrity beef (reverbeefrations) STILL being felt from that incident... Drake just told Rolling Stone that Macklemore's actions were "wack as f**k"! But lest you think Drake was annoyed at Macklemore's lack of class, he was actually just mad that he didn't ALSO get an apologetic text: "To name just Kendrick? That s**t made me feel funny... No, in that case, you robbed everybody. We all need text messages!" Let this be a lesson to all multiple-novelty-song rappers in the future: If you have the audacity to steal a Grammy directly from the hands of actual legends, then make sure your thumbs are prepared to be texting all night. Macklemore has just learned this lesson the hard way. [Us Weekly]
