Living vicariously through celebrities is what we do best. We feed on their successes, relationships and feuds like a pack of gossip-hungry wolves.

And why not... in a world dominated by famous social media addicts, there isn't a rumor or secret that isn't strewn all over the internet for ravenous fans to feast on. And because nothing says attention-seeking quite like a public feud with another celebrity, we have the very regular privilege of witnessing the arguments of our favorite stars.

Here are the 5 juiciest celeb feuds of 2015.

Nicki Minaj vs Taylor Swift

What was it about?

Nicki Minaj, who seems to enjoy a celebrity spat as much as her own ass, took to twitter in July to express her displeasure about being left off the nomination list for the Video Music Awards' Best Video of the Year.

Superstar Taylor Swift, took the tweet as a personal jab at her nomination and instead of picking up the phone and calling her pal Nicki, she decided to tweet her response so that millions of followers could follow the progress of the argument.

After some heated back and forth with Nicki insisting she was not referring to Taylor, Swifty apologized and the pair kissed and made up.

2. Nicki Minaj vs Miley Cyrus

Why was it about?

Feisty little troublemaker Nicki Minaj let Miley Cyrus have it in what was arguably one of the best celebrity show downs of the year.

It all started over a statement Cyrus made in an interview with the New York Times, about the aforementioned twitter feud between Minaj and Swift:

"because of the anger that came with it. And it’s not anger like, 'Guys, I’m frustrated about some things that are a bigger issue.' You made it about you. Not to sound like a bitch, but that’s like, 'Eh, I didn’t get my VMA.' "

Minaj decided that this feud was too good hash out over Twitter and so instead waited until she was on the podium accepting her award for best hip-hop video at the MTV VMAs. A fierce looking Minaj turned to Cyrus who was hosting the event and said:

"And now, back to this bitch who had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what's good?"

Thankfully you can now buy merchandise commemorating the exemplary take down "Miley, what's good?"

3. Meek Mill vs Drake

What was it about?

Meek Mill clearly couldn't contain his frustrations when he took to twitter in July to publicly blast Drake for supposedly using a ghostwriter to pen his tracks, including his featured verse on Meek Mill's track "R.I.C.O."

Drake responded the same way any person in an argument releasing two diss tracks: 'Charged Up' and 'Back to Back Freestyle' featuring the lyrics 'trigger fingers turn to Twitter fingers.'

Meek Mill eventually hit back with "Wanna Know," by which time everyone was too bored to care.

4. Zayn Malik vs. Calvin Harris

What was it about?

Zayn Malik and Calvin Harris were puffing Twitter chests out this year, after the former One Direction singer appeared to take aim at Calvin's girlfriend Taylor Swift.

It started when Malik reposted a tweet comparing two quotes from Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus, the former talking about her pulling her music from Spotify, the latter saying:

"I’ve made my money. If no one buys my album, cool. It’s fine. I’ve got a house, and I’ve got dogs that I love. I don’t need anything else."

Harris went on a bit of a rant:

Malik responded with some perfect boyish bitchiness.

5. Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry

What was it about?

Although we are not privy to the details of the fall out, anyone who's anyone knows that Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have bad blood.

Without mentioning names, Taylor had this to say in an interview with Vanity Fair:

“I’ve trusted people before in friendships or relationships and have felt betrayed. If you betray your friend, if you will talk about them badly behind their back, if you will try to humiliate them or talk down to them, I have no interest in having a person like that in my life.”

Everyone assumed that she was referring to her ex pal Katy Perry and the release of her award winning music video for Bad Blood only added fuel to fire. Check it out!
