Kisses & Disses: 5 Celebs Who Threw Major Shade at Their Exes

Is it kind of cool in here? Like, unusually below room temperature cool? Or are celebrities just throwing up major SHADE at their exes again? Considering we're at the start of spring, it must be the latter.

If you kiss in public, well, might as well diss in public if it all goes south it seems. Here are five celebs who aimed a barbed arrow or two at their former flames...

Selena Gomez mini-disses Justin Bieber

Who knew Selena had this in her? Even a little bit?

On "The Late Show with David Letterman" this week, Selena surprised us when she threw Mickey Mouse-sized amounts of shade at her ex Justin when she casually said she'd made the guy cry. It was the moment Selena went from girl to damn, gurrrrrl.

David started the convo off by sharing an anecdote about when Justin teared up backstage the last time he was on the show, to which Selena perfectly chimed, "Well, that makes two of us."


John Mayer double-disses Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston

John Mayer has a reputation. Not for just being a serial dater, but for blabbing about them to the press after they inevitably implode. We'll just let John do what he does best by copy and pasting these poetic quotes and let John do the douche-y talking to—where else?—Playboy:

On comparing Jessica Simpson to hard drugs: "Yeah, that girl is like crack cocaine to me…Sexually it was crazy. That's all I'll say. It was like napalm, sexual napalm. Did you ever say, 'I want to quit my life and just f*ckin' snort you? If you charged me $10,000 to f*ck you, I would start selling all my sh*t just to keep f*cking you.'"

On Jennifer Aniston's washed-up career: "There was a rumor that I'd been dumped because I was tweeting too much. That wasn't it, but that was a big difference. The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think she's still hoping it goes back to 1998."

Jesse James somehow finds the audacity to diss Sandra Bullock

I don't want to spend too much time on this one because it really does repulse me. Like, it actually took me about 25 minutes just to type this sentence because my fingers kept uncontrollably retracting from the keyboard. Jesse James has that effect on bloggers.

After cheating on Sandra Bullock, America's sweetheart and probably the world's best Kindergarten teacher ever had she decided not to be an actress, Jesse miraculously found a way to hate on her in a Howard Stern interview.

When asked by the shock jock who's better in bed—Sandra or (his then current girlfriend) Kat Von D.—it was "an easy no-brainer" for Jesse. "Kat," he replied, she's "100 percent."

Justin Timberlake out disses (and out dances) Britney Spears

In the diss heard 'round "TRL" (yes, "TRL"…this is some old school shade right here), Justin premiered the video for his hit "Cry Me a River" featuring a conspicuous Britney Spears look-a-like he exacts revenge upon. Think everyone got this message loud and clear.

We should've all known that this was how it was going to go down. Two of the New Millennium's biggest stars break up and cause a rift in the pop music industry; the only way to restore order is with a choreographed song and dance. Which leads us to our favorite celebrity urban legend: After calling it quits in March, Justin and Britney ran into each other in LA at a club. Justin was with his new girlfriend (Channing Tatum's now-spouse Jenna Dewan!) to the ire of Britney, so instead of having a civil talk they had a savage dance off on the dance-floor. LOL.

Taylor Swift disses 50% of the world's population (also known as men, all the men)

Another day, another song, another diss. This is pretty much how Taylor Swift's Trapper Keeper calendar reads through the rest of 2013. Putting her exes on blast through chart-topping songs is standard operating procedure for the country-pop crossover.
