12 Celebrities Who Really Know How to Hold a Grudge

Some of you had a lifetime to make nice, and you just couldn’t. We know how seriously you all like to take “the biz,” er whatever you call it, but cutesy stuff like music and playing make-believe on camera should not be taken seriously enough to spark decades-long (heck, even life-long) feuds. We wish that squashing the beef was that simple. In a perfect world, every celebrity on this list would read this article, nod along like, ‘Maybe you’re right, Cracked,’ then pick up the phone and say, apologize to Ja Rule for calling him a “Wankster.” Then, since it’s a perfect world, they’d all tell their other celebrity pals that Cracked.com is the place to be!
