If you read that headline and had to check to make sure that April Fool’s Day was, in fact, yesterday, you’re not alone. Jeffree Star, YouTube beauty guru and lover of drama, has beef with Kourtney Kardashian’s 10-year-old son. If the global pandemic wasn’t strong enough evidence, I think this is confirmation that we’re officially living in The Bad Place. What is going on, and how the f*ck did we get here? Let’s dive in.
Despite all the drama that’s gone down since we got to know them, the Kardashians are generally known for keeping their sh*t tight on social media. They show us exactly what they want, when they want, which is mostly on TV and the fake Twitter fights they drum up to encourage us to watch them on TV. Like, Kylie Jenner is one of the most famous people on the planet, and she managed to keep her pregnancy a secret until after she had the baby! They might be tone-deaf or problematic, but the Kardashians are almost never sloppy on social media.
Well, I think it’s safe to say that the Kardashian ship has officially sprung a leak, and it’s none other than Mason Disick. Mason, Kourtney and Scott’s eldest son, recently discovered social media, and it’s been a f*cking trip already. A couple weeks ago, Mason made an Instagram account, and almost immediately went live for his followers. Normally, this wouldn’t have been that noteworthy—but Mason is a messy bitch who lives for drama. A viewer asked if Kylie and Travis are actually back together, and Mason said no right there on Instagram Live! An icon, honestly.
Shortly after that, Mason’s Instagram page disappeared, and Kourtney later explained that she shut that sh*t down. In her own IG Live, Kourtney said that her reason was that Mason is only 10, and Instagram’s age minimum is 13. That’s true, but I feel like the real reason was probably that Kris Jenner sent her a strongly worded text to get her son in line. The family that avoids PR crises together stays together!
So Mason’s Instagram is sadly gone, but don’t worry, he’s still on TikTok. He’s actually been on TikTok since January, and Kourtney has appeared in his videos, so it’s a parent-approved platform. But that might not last long, because Mason has now figured out how to use TikTok’s live feature. In his first live video, he talked about going viral on Instagram, and complained that he won’t get to go to Coachella this year “because of corona.” Aw, maybe he can do a Zoom Coachella with Vanessa Hudgens.
And, in a video from last week, he went live with major TikTok star Addison Rae, who has a casual 30 million followers. What am I doing wrong with my life? When a viewer asked Mason about his favorite beauty YouTuber, he answered honestly: “I don’t really watch makeup YouTubers, but I think James —he’s really nice. Because Jeffree Star is, like, spoiled AF.” Lmaooooo. Considering that James Charles and Jeffree Star are two of the messiest YouTubers around, you already knew this was going to cause drama.
On Wednesday, Jeffree Star was made aware of what Mason said, and as he always does, he made his thoughts known on Twitter. After declaring that six years ago, he only had $500 in his bank account, he suggested that Mason might be “confused with his own privilege versus mine being self-made,” and added that “hopefully his father can educate him soon.” OUCH.
Okay, so is everything that Jeffree Star said probably correct? Honestly yeah, it’s no secret that Mason has grown up extremely privileged, and with his aunt touted as a self-made billionaire, he might not really understand what that means. But does Jeffree Star realize that he’s dragging a literal child in front of his millions of followers on Twitter, just for calling him spoiled?
This is both a bad look and an unnecessary one, and someone must have pointed this out to Jeffree, because he’s since deleted his tweet about Mason. I’m hoping that Mason will go live again to address his beef with Jeffree, but I have a feeling that Kourtney won’t let that happen and she will be changing the Wifi password immediately. That’s probably for the best, because I don’t need to be spending my time thinking about a feud between a 34-year-old and a 10-year-old child. This might be the weirdest feud of 2020 so far, but with the way this year is going so far, who knows what will happen.

I have aged approximately 56 years since the original #FoftyGate, when 50 Cent posted on Instagram one Friday in April about how Lala Kent’s fiancé, Randall Emmett, owed him a million dollars. 50 (Fifty? Fitty? Fif?) demanded Randall pay him back the money he was owed by Monday, which spawned the phrase “Money by Monday”, which was silk screened onto T-shirts and used as hashtags across the nation. Vanderpump Rules fans and 50 Cent followers alike spent the entire weekend waiting to see if Randall would pay back the money by Monday (spoiler alert: he did, or at least, 50 claimed he did). It was a glorious weekend, and I’m pleased to report that it’s one that is repeating itself, as 50 Cent has once again taken aim at Lala and Randall—although, this time, it doesn’t have anything to do with money, or Randall, and everything to do with Lala.
Foftygate 2.0 started on Friday, when Lala Kent appeared on Watch What Happens Live! and a caller asked about Lala’s relationship with Fifty after Randall paid him back. Lala started by saying she listened to “In da Club” on her birthday, and then she revealed, “I think I really dinged Fofty’s ego. In fact, I know that because I have the receipt to prove that, that I would never post because I ain’t that girl.” She followed that up by saying, “I ain’t beefing unless I’m getting paid on Vanderpump, yo.”
If you’ll recall, Lala, who is from Utah, has previously said that the spirit of Tupac Shakur inhabits her body (because he doesn’t have anything better to do in the afterlife), and she is apparently still clinging to this narrative. On WWHL, she also went on to jokingly compare her beef with Fifty to the infamous Tupac and Biggie feud of the 90s.
Fofty found out pretty much right away and was not happy about this. He first shared a screenshot of a Hollywood Life writeup of Lala’s interview, writing in the caption, “What’s wrong with this hoe… now don’t say she didn’t ask for it when I started tripping.”
Then he immediately followed that up with a screenshot from an UsWeekly article in which Lala revealed that she hit rock bottom on a trip to Disney World with Randall and his daughters, confessing that she was drunk for four days straight. I feel like I remember Lala talking about this on Vanderpump Rules (or maybe all her rock bottom stories just bleed together, I don’t know), but yikes. She was drunk for four days in front of his daughters? At Disney World, presumably on rides? That’s a big ol’ yikes.
Still, though, as much as I live for pettiness, it’s f*cked up for Fofty to make fun of Lala’s drinking issues when she has publicly been pretty open about the fact that she has a problem.
Then, he posted another picture, of Lala and Randall in bed together, with the caption, “Randell: I’m sorry Fofty this bitch is drunk and high. I told her put that damn phone down she don’t listen.?50:Shut the fuck up Randell.?”
So 50 has graduated from posting text screenshots to just recapping them in the captions? That’s what I’m guessing he means by this. Is he claiming that Lala is drinking and on drugs again? This is all a lot, and I am frankly upset that Fofty hasn’t given us the full picture here. Also, it’s hilarious to me that these guys are supposedly friends, and yet Fifty still can’t be bothered to spell Randall’s name right.
He followed that up with a photo of Lala and Randall in which Lala looks like she just came back from a fresh fillers appointment, and Randall looks like his typical mix of confused and serious.

I mean, yeah whatever Randall has some loose neck skin, but cut the guy a break. He’s like, 50 years old.
THENNN things started to get really good. Fofty posted a couple videos of Lala discussing, on camera, how she and Randall met. In case you didn’t have to watch the clip 32 times throughout last season of Vanderpump Rules, the gist is basically a #MeToo nightmare: Randall saw Lala working, sent his assistant to ask if she was an actress, got her an audition, had sex with her that night, and gave her the part and a Range Rover the next day.

At this point, I really don’t know what Fofty is getting at with this. It seems like he’s trying to shame Lala for something that she has been very open and shameless about in the first place, so I feel like it’s not going to work. Also, should Lala really be shamed for this, or should we be shaming Randall, who kind of used his power as a producer to sleep with an aspiring actress and reward her with a part in a movie? Just because they’re getting married doesn’t make it any less sketch.
It’s also not clear what 50 wants out of this situation—unlike last time, we don’t have a clean-cut #MoneyByMonday deadline. Maybe he wants an apology? For Lala to take back what she said? I have a feeling Lala is going to walk these statements back real quick, because for all her talk about “popping” people who challenge her, at the end of the day, she talks a big game but can’t back it up.

I hope you are all sitting down right now, because I have some bad news for the Kaylor shippers out there. (Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift, yes it’s a real thing, no I don’t need help.) It appears the tall blonde singer and her taller blonde friend are having some problems, because late last week TMZ caught Karlie Kloss in the ultimate act of betrayal. No, she did not kill Taylor’s cat. No, she did not kidnap her first child. She didn’t even watch Game of Thrones without her and then lie about it right to her face as if it meant nothing (Looking at you, Liz). She—wait for it—hung out with Katy Perry!
If you recall, Taylor and Katy used to have mad love, but now they have bad blood. Taylor still has scars in her back from Katy’s knives. It’s horrendous and violent. Now, all members of Taylor’s elite squad are banned from hanging out with Katy, and I imagine if they break that rule they can only borrow Taylor’s smallest yacht and must clean out Meredith Grey’s litter box when the housekeeper is away. We all saw what happened when Selena dared to get back with Justin.
Rumors of problems between Taylor and Karlie have been brewing for a while. They have not been seen out together in some time, and Karlie’s name was suspiciously missing from the T-shirt of friends’ names Taylor was wearing in the “Look What You Made Me Do” video. Then, in January, Karlie posted a video of herself playing basketball and captioned it “Swish swish.” She got so much backlash from Swifties that she ended up changing the caption on Instagram.

As any Betch would know, “Swish Swish” is the name of Katy’s
pathetic excuse for a diss track for Taylor on her last album. Hmm, suspicious. Rabid pre-teens People were immediately calling Karlie a traitor, while others seemed to think that this could be a sign that Taylor and Katy are cool now and just waiting to announce it. Sure guys, hold onto those dreams, they’re cute.
This can only mean two things: either Karlie Kloss is no longer friends with Taylor Swift or Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have made amends pic.twitter.com/qsVh2RvBOP

I’m sure everything will be revealed on Taylor’s next album when the first single will most definitely be titled “Die Karlie Die.” Did I accurately capture the subtleties of Taylor’s shade? I think I did.
We always loved Sex and the City, but honestly the drama between the ladies has been even better since the show ended. This weekend, Kim Cattrall blasted Sarah Jessica Parker on Instagram, and we’re still recovering. In the past, Kim Cattrall (Samantha Jones, if you’re new here) has been open about not always having the best time on the show, calling out SJP and others, but this new development is a whole other level.
It all began last Sunday, when Kim Cattrall put a text post on Instagram announcing the unexpected death of her younger brother. Now, we normally have some strong thoughts about text posts on Instagram, but these are really sad circumstances, so it’s okay. Kim asked for privacy for her family and herself through this difficult time, and obviously tons of people commented their love and support. Pretty normal stuff. Among the commenters were Sex and the City costars Cynthia Nixon (Miranda) and Sarah Jessica Parker. Again, there’s just nothing weird about this. Sure, SJP and Kim have had their differences in the past, but it’s not that hard to put aside your beef and say you’re sorry someone’s brother died. But this story is far from over.
Kim responded to Cynthia’s comment, thanking her for her kind words, but SJP got no such response. Well, not until Saturday, when Kim returned to Instagram like a bat out of hell, sent here with the sole purpose of destroying Sarah Jessica Parker’s fucking life. This time, she went for the text post again, but it was 100% savage.
My Mom asked me today “When will that @sarahjessicaparker, that hypocrite, leave you alone?” Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now. Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona. Copy and paste link https://nypost.com/2017/10/07/inside-the-mean-girls-culture-that-destroyed-sex-and-the-city/
Um, should we be here for this? Do you want us to like, go outside so you can have this conversation in private? Nope? Okay, we’ll happily stay and talk shit. So, like, what exactly was Kim going for here? We’ve all known for years that she’s not exactly Sarah Jessica’s biggest fan, but it sort of seemed like she was maybe just trying to be nice? Clearly that’s not how Kim sees it. Instead, she calls SJP a cruel hypocrite who’s exploiting their tragedy to restore her “nice girl” persona. Wow, is she practicing her SAT words? While we’re not sure why anyone would want to be a nicegirl on purpose, Kim really thinks she’s the fucking devil.
Sarah Jessica Parker hasn’t made any sort of public comment on this whole debacle, but it seems safe to say that Sex and the City 3 probably still isn’t happening. Oh well, guess I’ll just have to watch all the old episodes on HBO Go like I’ve been doing for the last decade. We’re eagerly awaiting the next chapter in the Kim/SJP feud, which will no doubt take place in a Vanity Fair interview or some classy shit like that where SJP calls Kim delusional while also being so diplomatic it hurts. We love drama, can you tell?

Being a pop star is basically like Game of Thrones only with less incest and murder (we hope), and this weekend Taylor Swift claimed another victim in her relentless pursuit of the iron throne. Taylor’s feud with Katy Perry (that began over
John Mayer some stolen backup dancers) has been simmering for years, but now Katy wants to put it all behind them. Someone had to break first, and it’s not surprising that Katy is more of a nicegirl than Taylor.
Things in the feud reached a new level last week, when Taylor released her entire catalog on Spotify on the same day Katy’s new album came out. This was honestly a low blow even for Taylor, who isn’t exactly known for taking the high road. Their feud has often taken place over social media, or even in diss tracks, but trying to sabotage someone else’s album sales is kind of next level. Whatever, Taylor clearly doesn’t have a soul.
But with the heat turned up, Katy needed to get out of the kitchen. In an interview with Arianna Huffington (rich HuffPost lady), Katy said she’s “ready to let it go,” and that she apologizes for anything she’s done to Taylor since the whole thing started in 2014. She went on about how there are more important things happening in the world, and even said that Taylor is a “fantastic songwriter.” We’re not sure we’d go that far, but it’s not our fight to fight.
Katy of course had to do something extra, so she followed this statement by singing a little bit of “Let It Go” from Frozen, just in case the message wasn’t clear already. Speaking of extra, Katy also shared a video of her getting an hour-long therapy session, in which she cries a lot and explains why she cut her hair. It’s interesting enough, but also like what are you doing putting your therapy on YouTube?
So will Taylor the ice queen give a shit about Katy’s white flag? TBD, but she hasn’t made any public comment yet. She probably has to look into her
evil magic mirror and make sure she’s still the fairest one of all before she makes any decisions, so don’t hold your breath. Taylor knows she has the upper hand right now, so she can make Katy sit around waiting for an apology as long as she wants. Kind of like in middle school when your friend broke your favorite pink gel pen and bought you a new one because she was so sorry but you still waited until the last minute to invite her to your birthday party so she knew not to mess with you again. Actually, it’s exactly like that. Taylor Swift is just an overgrown middle school girl with a six figure bank account. Why have I never realized it before?
In the meantime, you can listen to Taylor’s whole catalog on Spotify, or just don’t because a snake will always be a snake. #TeamKimye, in case you forgot the shenanigans of last summer. Go listen to Kanye instead, or go outside or something.
