Celebrities continue to spark controversy - Trina Trice

Celebrity feuds are alive and well. Recently during a broadcast of the Association of Country Music Awards, lead singer Natalie Maines of the demonized girl trio the Dixie Chicks sported a T-shirt that had the letters "FUTK" on it. I don't think I have to point out what the "FU" stands for, but the "TK" stands for country music singer Toby Keith, who recently had a hit with his song "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)." With that song, Keith took a very pro-war stance on the Iraq situation, while Maines told a British audience she was ashamed President George W. Bush was from her home state of Texas. Keith criticized the Dixie Chicks, as did most of the country music community, especially the fans. With her T-shirt, Maines began a great tradition in pop culture n the celebrity feud. They've been going on since the beginning of celebritydom. Feuds are practically necessary in the hip-hop world. There's rapper NAS who hates Jay-Z. Eminem hates just about everybody. His mentor Dr. Dre had a feud with once-upon-a-time friend Easy-E. The latter eventually died from AIDS. The East Coast-West Coast feud culminated, as the media has reported, in the deaths of rappers Tupak Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G.
