Musings: My Top 10 Pettiest Celebrities & Fictional Characters

I’ve come to interrupt my usual travel, lifestyle and beauty content for you to discover a part of me I thought I had hidden. That’s right. I’m petty. I wrote about the art of letting go last year and whilst it encouraged me to take a step back sometimes the petty side just takes over. That got me thinking about the world of celebrities, the TV shows I’ve watched and my favourite petty characters.

Now, what is petty you may ask? Good old Google describes it as:

So just who are those petty celebrities and fictional characters I’m thinking of?

Prince AKA ‘Mr Get off The Stage’

God bless his soul and we thank him for this is an iconic moment in Kardashian history:

Whitney ‘Show Me The Receipts’ Houston

God bless Whitney’s soul. What I loved about her is that she stood her ground and was a woman of words. Petty people remember the RECEIPTS:

Friday night you and your boys went out to eat
Then they hung out, but you came home around three
If six of y’all went out
Then four of you were really cheap
‘Cause only two of you had dinner
I found your credit card receipt
It’s not right but it’s okay
I’m gonna make it anyway
Pack your bags up and leave
And don’t you dare come running back to me
It’s not right but it’s okay
I’m gonna make it anyway
Close the door behind you leave your key
I’d rather be alone than unhappy
I pack your bags so you can leave town for a week (yes I am)
The phone rings and then you look at me (Why’d you turn and look at me)
You said it was one of your friends, down on 54th Street (boy)
So why did 213 show up on your caller ID

Cardi B 

I could write a whole post on Cardi B’s pettiest moments but my favourite one of all time has to be her and Nicki Minaj’s beef at the Harper’s Bazaar party involving a knot and a flying shoe. WHAT WAS THE REASON?

Louis ‘I Am A Lawyer’ Litt

If you haven’t seen Suits, you NEED to. Not only will it make you think you’re a practical lawyer, it’ll make you want to move to New York and meat Louis Litt himself. A man of peculiar tastes, but a damn good lawyer, Louis is one of the pettiest characters I’ve ever witness on the realm of Netflix. Here’s the very best or worst of Mr. Litt.

Cyrus ‘The White House is Mine’ Beene 

Scandal, scandal, scandal. If you haven’t watched Scandal you better add it to your list this winter. Although its a little farfetched at times, one of the standout characters is Mr Cyrus Beene who works is way to the *almost* top of the White House through petty politics.

Tiffany ‘New York’ Pollard

If you’ve never seen Flavor Flav’s reality show ‘Flavour of Love’ you’re missing out on the reality TV queen that is Tiffany Pollard, also known as New York. Instead of me telling you why she is petty, I’m just going to go down the gifual representation route:

Nene ‘I Said What I Said’ Leakes



Mariah ‘I Don’t Know Her’ Carey  

Mariah is the OG queen of petty. Where do we begin? Her beef with J.Lo to her beef with Eminem. This is my favourite musical clapback to date:

Rihanna ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ Fenty’

Robyn Rihanna Fenty. I will always have a soft spot for my Bajan cousin (I wish) and even though she is now dominating the cosmetics industry I miss her petty days on Twitter. Remember her and Ciara’s Twitter beef?

Nicki ‘Stopped the Bag’ Minaj

Nicki Minaj seems a little bitter this year if I do say so (Sorry Barbz). If shoes aren’t being thrown at her by Cardi B, someone is accusing her of stopping their bag. I don’t really know what to say but I’d recommend Nicki reads ‘Slay in Your Lane’ because there is room for everyone. But you gotta love her shady moments…

  1. I’m so happy Prince started this list off right. All hail Prince. Louis is petty but he’s not a fun petty, his ass is annoying petty. bye Louis, you cause half the problems in your fictional Suits world and in mine.

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
