Everyone has a shady side.

Posted on

Listen, I know I don't know any of these celebs! BUT... in my opinion, they seem super nice, and they're not really known for their shadiness. So, here's some of the best times they were actually shady.


1. When Alicia Keys shaded Kelly Clarkson's vocal range on The Voice:

Alicia keys insinuated that she had more range than anyone sitting on #TheVoice panel, and Kelly Clarkson was VERY confused😭 as am i

2. And when Alicia said this to Adam Levine after he caught her wearing a lil' makeup:

RCA Records

3. When Ellen shadily asked how long Will & Grace had been on air:


4. When Kelly Clarkson said this about Taylor Swift, after her manager defended her shaky performance by saying, "This is not American Idol."

"I understand defending your artist obviously because I have done the same in the past for artists I like, including Taylor, so you might see why its upsetting to read you attacking American Idol for producing simply vocalists that hit 'the high notes. Thank you for that Captain Obvious sense of humor because you know what, we not only hit the high notes, you forgot to mention we generally hit the 'right' notes as well."

5. When Seth Meyers "I don't know her"-ed Cole Sprouse:


6. When Nicole Kidman called Giada De Laurentiis' pizza "tough":


7. When Jack Antonoff shadily did this during Katy Perry's opening VMA monologue:


8. When Kirsten Dunst was asked about the new Spider-Man movies and said this:

11. And when she shaded him on Letterman:


12. When Janet Jackson said this when asked about the similarities between her and Madonna:

13. When Reese Witherspoon liked this shady tweet about Taylor Swift:

14. When Sam Smith picked between Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian on Watch What Happens Live:


15. When Hilary Duff shaded Faye Dunaway after finding out Faye said she wasn't a real actress:


16. And when Sofia Vergara basically told Gordon Ramsay to butt out after he said her son's name (Manolo) sounds like a paint:


17. When Ellen shadily commented on Celine Dion's son's hair:


18. And then Celine shot right back:


19. And finally, when Tori Kelly made this face when Taylor Swift won the Grammy for Album of the Year:
