7 Male Pop Stars Who Diss Their Exes T-Swift Style


Taylor Swift gets a bad rap for talking smack about her former flames but she isn’t the only pop star who has notoriously dissed an ex in a song or interview. Male artists like to gossip, dish and play the, “I didn’t actually say the name,” game just as much as any female performer.

Adam Levine

Adam Levine told The Sun about ex-girlfriend, Maria Sharapova,”She wouldn’t make any noise during sex. I can’t tell you how disappointed I was. I really thought, like a lot of guys, that she’d be the loud screaming type. But instead, she just lay there like a dead frog. She even got angry if I started to moan, said it ‘ruined her concentration’.”

Kanye West

At his Coachella performance just after breaking up with Amber Rose, Kanye improvised the lyrics of his song, “Stronger” to say, “I’d do anything for a blonde d–e,  And she did anything when the time’s right.”

John Mayer

John Mayer told Playboy about Jessica Simpson, “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*cking 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.'”

Justin Timberlake

At a concert Justin Timberlake prefaced the song that is infamously about ex-flame Britney Spears, “Cry Me A River,” with these nasty words, “Sometimes in life, you think you found the one. But then one day you find out, that she is just some bitch!”


Drake disses ex-flame Rihanna in the song, “No Lie, with the lyrics, “Oh that look like what’s her name / Chances are it’s what’s her name / Chances are, if she was acting up/ Then I f***ed her once and never f***ed again / She could have aGrammy / I still treat that a** like a nominee / Just need to know what that p**** like / so one time / it’s fine with me.”

Chris Brown

Before the two got back together Chris Brown released the track, “Theraflu” dissing Rihanna with the lyrics, “Don’t f*ck with my old bi–hes, like a bad fur, every industry n*gga done had her, trick or treat like a pumpkin, just to smash her, B*tch is breaking codes, but I’m the password.”  Soon after Rihanna unfollowed him on Twitter and Chris responded, “Assumptions! I didn’t say any names so if u took offense to it then its something you feel guilty about.”


During the tumultuous custody battle with his ex-wife, Usher tweeted a picture of a dog and said, “I said I’d never trust a B**ch again. Meet my best friend. Ok Ok Ok, I’m done with sayin B**ch. Just had to say B**ch one more time.”
