I’ll tell ya, if there is one word to describe 2013 this far, it’d be BEEF (thank the Slang Gods it’s not YOLO). Either every celebrity has gotten super sensitive, or they have become a gang of brazen bullies. Whatever the case may be, it’s like WWE Smackdown is on 24/7.

For our most recent match up, we have Brooklyn rapper, weighing in at a hefty amount of profane and sexual language, the one and only Queen Bee, Lil’ Kim!

And in the opposite corner, hailing all the way from Over the Top TV Show Host Land, Wendy “I’ve Had Every Rapper Diss Me In Their Songs” Williams!

Round 1

Lil’ Kim decided to attend an event Friday night in the city. Except no one really knew if it was her, considering she looked…rather different…I’m not sure why anyone is surprised, considering she’s looked dramatically different for quite some time now.

I’m sensing that there is a commandment that she’s obeying that reads: “To solidify your spot as the best female rapper you must continue to alter your face so no one knows it’s really you.” Will someone please just give her that honor already, because home-girl is follwing that rule to the end!

She took to Twitter to express her anger over the paparazzi and blogs that apparently “Photoshopped” the pictures to make her look even more Michael Jackson Thriller-esque. How determined was she to prove them wrong? She took snapshots of the “real” pictures of her from her computer. Uh….ok….




Round 2

Fast forward to Tuesday, when all of the three at home viewers and coerced studio audience members sat down to watch “The Wendy Williams Show”, where she addressed Kim’s new look.

At first, Williams was on her side. She acknowledged that the paparazzi most likely caught her at a bad time, when she was doing something really funky with her face.  Therefore, a really funky picture would result. But it wouldn’t be Wendy Williams without some typical Wendy Williams commentary.

 ”Kim, in my mind, I knew your goal was always to look like La Toya Jackson. You’ve out-La Toya’d La Toya in your new look. Don’t blame Photoshopping, blame your plastic surgeon, girl.”


Round 3

Obviously by this point, Lil’ Kim was frothing at the mouth. So, she vents on Ye Olde Beef Starter; Twitter!

Stop hating on me because U sucked Big’s dick & he didn’t  want nothing to do with yo ass after that.

Well, then.

It’s time for the world to know the real. I’m not playing with yo ass no more. Let’s Get it!!!!

Oh. Boy.

In regards to the first tweet, TMI would be an understatement. I’m pretty sure I will have really foul nightmares for the next week **shudders**. You can’t just throw information out there all willy nilly like that without warning us!

But in my honest opinion, this was a lil’ (pun) overreaction on Kim’s part. Yes I know that their beef goes back to 2005 when Kim mentioned her name in one of her raps:

 Don’t come around here with that Wendy Williams s**t, get your facts straight or shut up b**ch.

Ah, so pleasant.

And yes, I know that things were probably awkward between them even before that since Kim and the Notorious B.I.G. had a little fling. And due to recent information courtesy of her (once again, gross), it seems Williams has been on her mind for a while.

But sheesh! Did you have to bring up the dirty laundry?! And then threaten her?! Over one corny line…

Listen, all of Hollywood already dislikes her. However ridiculous, or a waste of television space her show is, her job is to poke fun at people. Hate comes with the territory.  I know you’re not going to let someone diss you like that, but the reaction was a little crass. Just write another rap about her! You won’t have to worry about the 140 character limit!
