Diva vs. diva -- a video history of smack talk from Mariah, Madonna, and more: Watch it here

Posted on

Hakuna Matata! It’s the circle of life for our sweet divas.

The ever-awesome fourfour (he of the deathless Celine Dion Is Amazing video) has supercut a decade-plus of diva smack talk one epic nine minute montage of backhanded compliments, cutting quips, and straight-up rude as heck responses.

It’s all here: Mariah vs. Whitney, Mariah vs. Madonna, Madonna vs. Janet, Britney vs. Madonna, Christina vs. Lady Gaga, Cher vs. Celine, and Cher vs. Madonna.

My favorite biting retort comes towards the end, when Cher takes on Madonna by saying, “She’s unbelievably creative, because she’s not unbelievably talented. She’s not beautiful.” Only Cher could get away with saying all that with a nonchalant ‘What? Is this offensive?’ side-eye.

Check out the over-the-top awesomeness below:
