Sometimes celebrities get a bit too real and publicly criticize or outright insult someone they have been in a relationship with — be it a personal relationship or a working one. The latest addition to the "List of Diss" is Shia LaBeouf who, in an interview with Variety, stated that he thinks directing legend Steven Spielberg sucks. Well, not exactly like that, but it came pretty close. He's not the only one though...but we'll talk about that later.
What'd You Say, Shia?
While criticizing Spielberg isn't all he did in the Variety interview, you gotta say his words were pretty sharp and it's safe to say he'll probably never be working with Steven again:
“You get there, and you realize you’re not meeting the Spielberg you dream of, you’re meeting a different Spielberg, who is in a different stage in his career. He’s less a director than he is a f–king company. Spielberg’s sets are very different. Everything has been so meticulously planned. You got to get this line out in 37 seconds. You do that for five years, you start to feel like not knowing what you’re doing for a living. I don’t like the movies that I made with Spielberg. The only movie that I liked that we made together was ‘Transformers’ one.”
Quite the burn. Maybe there's a reason why Spielberg does things the way he does, and maybe his micromanaging is why he's such a good director. Not defending, just saying, Shia. Good thing he seems to love Michael Bay though:
“Mike is an artist. People don’t realize how dope that dude is. He’s got to get a little ballsier with his moves — he’s trying to toe the line and be James Cameron, but James Camerons are dying. I don’t know what he’s chasing, but that version of director is dead. If Mike is to sustain, he’s got to get f–king weird.”
Mike, maybe you should hire Shia as your consultant.
But He's Not The Only One
This seems to be the year of many a diss, with celebrities publicly going at each other like they didn't care. Let's look at a few other celebs who joined Shia in verbally hurting others.
Justin Bieber Vs. Selena Gomez
Before he shut down his Instagram, the Biebs had a mini-fight with his lovable ex, Selena Gomez. In trying to defend his current bae, Sofia Richie, Justin sent out a warning to his fans to back down on the hate or he would delete his Instagram. Selena responded with a sarcastic comment saying, "If you can't handle the hate, then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol." This erupted in a battle that eventually ended up with Biebs blurting out that Selena had cheated on him with the sexy Zayn Malik, and then deleting his Instagram. That's not how you treat a girl Biebs, bad move.
Kanye West's Permanent Diss Vs. Taylor Swift
There's nothing quite like dissing someone in a song, because that shit is forever. While wifey Kim says that Kanye consulted Taylor (Swift, of course) before using the lyrics below, most people would say it's still a pretty "ouch" diss. This feud is still ongoing, with Taylor constantly dissing him and him retaliating, but until she puts it in a song, she probably can't one-up him.
I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex...Why? I made that bitch famous (God damn)...I made that bitch famous
Chloe Grace Moretz Vs. Kim Kardashian
The star of the Carrie reboot film, Chloe Grace Moretz had no second thoughts when tweeting Kim K about being a role model to young women about respecting their bodies, but that didn't go down well with Kim K. And thus this response:
That one's pretty nasty, and looks like Kim K is just as flamboyant when it comes to her disses as her husband. Chloe eventually tweeted that the whole feud was a waste of her time and that Kim K "does not deserve her attention". At least the girl had sense to back away politely before it turned into a total catfight.
And don't forget, it's only September. Probably gonna have a few more major disses on the way!
Instead of throwing shade, some celebrities show their appreciation for their fellow celebs by doing their best impressions of them out some spot-on ones in the video below:
Do you think some public disses are warranted? Or should celebs just keep their opinions to themselves?
