What’s Beef? 10 Of The Most Ridiculous, Random And Ratchet Celeb Beefs Of 2012

December 26, 2012 ‐ By Clarke Gail Baines

So 2012 was basically the year of the squabble. Twitter, as usual, got people caught in their feelings too easily, and beefs over everything from domestic violence, to women, to reality TV and the origin of the word “vamp” were argued about. Seeing that we work in media 24/7, we had to watch many of these beefs come to light and often fade to black, and because there were so many to laugh at because they were so random, we decided that we’d run down the lamest ones that went down this year.


Tamar And Jill Scott

These two talented songbirds exchanged words over Twitter earlier in the year and I’m pretty sure everyone who caught word of their quick spat was just as surprised as we were. Jilly from Philly is our girl! And Tamar, you know, she’s talented and funny for the most part. But after Jill Scott asked her followers to watch Mary Mary’s reality show, saying, “Please watch Mary Mary on WE tv. Finally a real representation. Yay!!!!!!!!!” Tamar Braxton for some reason took her comment about “a representation” as a jab and replied with the following:

“Of freakin what?

*gets in her feelings* She won’t go there*she won’t go there*she won’t go there* she won’t go there*she prays and waits* “

A follower of Tamar told her that while a fan, she shouldn’t come for Jill, and Tamar claimed that she was only responding because Jill “went there.” Even the very random Towanda Braxton tried to jump in and claim she was tired of black women hating on other black women, but Jill kept it classy as usual, hilariously commenting on Tamar’s rant with, “u can’t be speaking to me.” Instead of going in (that’s not her thing), she told everyone who misconstrued her words that they needed to grow ALL the way up: “Ok grow all the way up people. Just because I love oranges doesn’t mean I HATE apples.”

    I have found that Twitter is verbal (digital?) diarrhea for many folk,including celebs. It gives you the means to say whatever you feel like saying without an iota of thought beforehand. Which is fine for young folk, I guess. I also feel that PR’s should have more control over what their clients say…*cough*ChrisBrown*cough*. Oh shut up, ya’ll know I’m right about that.

    They say that history repeats itself, and I can’t wait until the days of celebrities keeping their mouths shut and stop telling everything that goes on in their lives again like in the 50s. All these twitter beefs were so ridiculous.
