Selena Gomez and Ariana Grande are, arguably, two of the biggest pop superstars in the world right now. Ever since they rose to fame on Disney Channel and Nickelodeon, respectively, people have tried to pit the girls against each other, with only slight evidence (Ari allegedly shaded Sel for lip-syncing at a Jingle Ball concert a few years ago) to back up their theories. All has been silent on the AG vs. SG front for quite some time now, until Ms. Gomez decided to get sneaky.
The 24-year-old celebrity recently covered Vogue magazine‘s April 2017 issue and, as expected, was super excited and proud. Selena obviously wanted people to see the mag, so she decided to cover a bunch of others on display with her own.

The action was
obviously most likely meant to be a joke, but not everybody was laughing — especially not Arianators, who noticed one of the magazines Selly covered was the 23-year-old singer’s Cosmopolitan cover. While some people tried to remind fans that the “It Ain’t Me” crooner covered everything and didn’t mean to target Ariana specifically, stans were not willing to forgive so easily.

Yikes. Can’t we all just get along?!
All the worst things Selena Gomez said about other celebrities:
Yes, Dems and Selena have been BFFs for a very long time, but that doesn't mean Selena can't throw shade her way from time to time. In fact in 2013, the Spring Breakers actress gave Demi a backhanded compliment when talking about her drug problems. "I'm very proud of Demi and her being able to accept the challenges she went through, but also for staying a good role model to people who do struggle with the things that she's gone through," she told reporters.
"I've always been taught that you are who you surround yourself with. So if you surround yourself with good positive people you can only do good things for them and they can only do good things for you. It is frustrating at times when certain things are being said, but other than that I'm just a normal girl living a normal life," she added. Oh, Selena you're better than that.
After looking as though Sel and Ky were BFFs, a huge feud erupted after Kylie's sis Kendall Jenner reportedly hooked up with Selena's ex Justin. Kylie then posted a pictured of herself hanging out with JB and Selena did not take it well. According to a source, Selena's response to the photo was anything but nice. "Selena was not happy that Justin posted a selfie with Kylie," an insider told HollywoodLife about the photo posted in May 2014. "She thinks Kylie is desperate for attention and is a pathetic Justin Bieber groupie," the source added. Yikes, this is way harsh!

Selena has a complicated relationship with her ex BF and very long history of dissing him. One of the most famous instances was when Sel was on The Late Show and David Letterman made a joke about the one time he made Justin cry. Selena quickly responded to his story by saying, "Well, then that makes two of us!" #Burn.
She also has a history of making dance videos to songs like "Everybody Knows (Your Boyfriend is a Douchebag)" which is clearly directed at her former beau. Beliebers aren't fans of Selena's negative comments about Biebs, but even the haters have to admit she has a certain style to her burns, which are always full of sass.

After rumors of Kendall and Justin hooking up surfaced, Selena allegedly resented the model and wanted nothing to do with her. Despite the awkward love triangle with Justin, Selena's biggest diss to Kendall had nothing to do with her relationship with JB. So how did she diss her? The "Good For You" singer decided to end her friendship with both Kendall and her little sis Kylie, because they were "toxic." Reports claimed that Selena had enough of all the partying that the Jenner sisters were doing at the time and that she thought they were a "toxic distraction." Ouch.

Selena does not like being insulted and she does NOT let things go. After Lorde told reporters that Selena’s music was "anti-feminist," Selena didn't take long before throwing shade back at her. In an interview with 99.5 she slipped in a backhanded compliment directed at Lorde saying, "I appreciate everybody's opinion, especially because I've covered her music lots of times. I think she is super talented and I think it's awesome. But I think at the same time that feminism and that specific thing is very sensitive because in my opinion it's not feminism if you're tearing down another artist." She later talked more about feminism at one of her concerts and the long speech was again thought to be all about Lorde's previous comments.

The bad blood between Miley and Selena runs deep. After the two Disney stars both dated Nick Jonas, there quickly became a hatred towards one another. Although it seemed like that issue was past them, in early 2015 Miley started another fight with the "Stars Dance" singer. Miley posted a sexy photo of herself with her boobs very exposed and wrote, "Do yiew tink if I push muah titties up I'll get mo followahhhzzzz?" This was allegedly directed at Selena, and her supposed sexual Insta photos. Selena threw shade right back by taking her own photo with friend Brandon Mychal Smith sticking her tongue out… clearly channeling her inner Miley.
