Many people think that beefs only occur in Hip-Hop (not including the Christina Aguilera’s countless feuds across various genres). However, Pop divas have been known for their battles in the media as well.
One such example is the infamous clash between Mariah Carey and Madonna. Following an almost identical script to the current quarrel between Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim, the duo engaged in a rather public feud in 1995 when Madonna felt threatened by Carey’s meteoric rise to success as her own career had begun to slump.
The way that Carey handled that situation is a shining example of proper media training. Not only did she shut Madonna down just like Whitney Houston and Janet Jackson did after being attacked by the ‘Vogue’ singer themselves, she did it while keeping things classy. Fatality.
