Every Time Jake Paul Has Landed Himself In A Sizzling Hot Celeb Beef

The YouTuber is now feuding with Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid.

Another day, another Jake Paul drama – and this time, it’s involving power couple Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid. 

Over the weekend, Paul took to Twitter call Malik out for telling him to “f*ck off for no reason,” setting off a spicy feud that even got a fiery response from Malik’s girlfriend, Gigi Hadid.

Listen to the GOAT team breakdown the beef on the latest ep of It’s Been A Big Day For… below:

“Almost had to clap up Zane from 1 Direction because he is a little guy and has an attitude and basically told me to f*ck off for no reason when I was being nice to him…Zane IK you’re reading this… Stop being angry cause you came home alone to your big ass hotel room hahaha,” he tweeted.

Shedding more light on their tense encounter, Paul then tweeted, “Bro he literally started yelling and freaking the f*ck out. “You wanna test me mate.” Lol I feel bad for childhood stars.”

Paul’s comments clearly didn’t go down well with Gigi Hadid, who responded, “Lol cause he doesn’t care to hang out with you and your embarrassing crew of YouTube groupies? Home alone with his best friends like a respectful king cause he has me, sweetie. Unbothered by your irrelevant ugly ass. Go to bed…”

Wow. 

Sadly, it’s not the first time Jake Paul has found himself at the centre of a sizzling hot beef. 

Alissa Violet

The YouTuber has had his fair share of feuds with his Team 10 housemates, including Alissa Violet, who he kicked out the house and then wrote a diss track about when she exposed Team 10’s crazy rules.

The ‘Haters’

In 2017, Paul released a rap track called ‘That Ain’t in the News’ in which he apologised for his actions but also took aim at all the ‘haters’ focusing on the negative things he’s done rather than the good.

FaZe Banks

The same year, Paul accused Alissa Violet’s new boyfriend FaZe Banks of assaulting his assistant Meg at an LA nightclub. Banks responded with a video of his own in which he said he’d be suing Team 10 for defamation of character. Banks follower count reportedly rose by 200,000 and Paul’s plummeted by over 60,000 following the feud. 

And how could we possibly forget Jake’s brother Logan Paul, who consistently makes headlines for all the wrong reasons, including the time he posted a vlog depicting the corpse of a man who committed suicide in a Japanese forest. 

Each time Jake Paul becomes the centre of a controversy, he takes to his YouTube channel and social media to apologise – but the drama continues to follow him. 

There’s no telling how he’ll explain his way out of this new online feud with Zayn Malik, but I’m guessing being the butt of all the bad news must get pretty exhausting.

How Mardi Gras 2020 Is Focusing On Elevating Regional LGBTQIA Voices

This year's theme is 'What Matters.'

It’s time to get your biodegradable glitter out and wave that rainbow flag high because we’re already in the thick of Mardi Gras 2020. 

This year’s festival is bigger and better than ever with more parties, parades, plays and performances than you can poke a sequin-covered stick at. One of the best things about the 2020 Mardi Gras is how inclusive the festival is.

Not only are a lot of the events free and super accessible, but there’s renewed focus on members of the LGBTQIA community who are celebrating in regional areas.

To shed a little more light on everything Mardi Gras we spoke to Kat Dopper, who is the festival’s creative director and the director and founder of Heaps Gay on the latest ep of It’s Been A Big Day For..

The regional focus of Mardi Gras 2020 is something that is particularly close to Dopper’s heart considering she comes from the rural town of Condobolin – most famous for being Shannon Noll’s hometown. “For me, I’m so passionate about regional community towns. This year, for the first time ever, we are working with regional organisations. There’s Wagga, Broken Hill, Dubbo, Lismore, Adelaide – they’re throwing big events in their towns and we’re doing live crosses onto the broadcast.”

“It’s about how we think about elevating those smaller voices, elevating and activating regional towns, and making sure every single person that is LGBTQIA feels comfy, expresses themselves and sees themselves in our festival in some way.”

The theme for Mardi Gras 2020 is ‘What Matters,’ which Dopper says is all about “stopping as a community and checking in on everybody.”

Dopper said that since the same-sex marriage plebiscite of 2017, “everybody has been splintering off, and there’s still things still matter to us. Whether it’s trans rights, family values, the religious freedom bill.”

“‘What Matters’ is about saying, ‘hold on, we need you to tell us what matters to you.’ It’s your turn to stand up.”

“It’s about having that legacy of where we’ve come from, and looking after that, but thinking about the organisation in a monumental way. How are we going to move this organisation forward, connect to young people, connect to young voices that may not necessarily feel represented currently.”

During our chat with Dopper, she also spoke about how Mardi Gras has changed over the years, all of the incredible events happening during the festival, how to feel included in the festival if you’re an introverted member of the LGBTQIA community, how to be a good ally and how Mardi Gras – and individuals – can help people around Australia all year round. 

Mardi Gras 2020 which is running from February 14th to March 1st, and head to the official website to get involved.

All The Times Celebs Successfully Pranked The Paparazzi

No pictures, please.

I honestly don’t think being a super duper famous celebrity is as great as it’s cracked up to be. Sure, you get showered in lots of money and attention from complete strangers, but say goodbye to your privacy and any hopes of keeping your bad hair day out of the tabloids. The good news is, a lot of celebs have wisened up to the sneaky ways of the paparazzi and come up with some pretty clever ways to prank with them. Here are some of the best:

Benedict Cumberbatch

In 2013, actor Benedict Cumberatch made a pretty bold statement to paparazzi who camped outside the Sherlock set in Wales. The celeb wore a dark hoodie and covered his face with a handwritten note that read: “Go photograph Egypt and show the world something important.” You tell ‘em, Bene!

Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield

On multiple occasions, this celeb power couple has taken their encounters with the paparazzi as an opportunity to spread an important message. In 2014, while they were photographed walking down the street, Stone held up a piece of paper which read: “Good morning! We were eating and saw a group of guys with cameras outside. And so we thought, let’s try this again. We don’t need the attention, but these wonderful organisations do.” By her side, was Garfield, also holding a note which referenced the websites for Youth Mentoring, Autism Speaks and Worldwide Orphans. Bless these two. 

Heath Ledger & Michelle Williams

Actress Michelle Williams and the late great Heath Ledger went for a far more straightforward prank when they were papped poolside. Williams flipped the bird and Ledger followed suit, hammering home the message with a little sign that simply read: “F*CK OFF!”

Speaking of celeb spotting, listen to how Michael Buble found love with a humble Brissy Hungry Jack’s on It’s Been A Big Day For… below:

Daniel Radcliffe

Like his character Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe has a way of casting a spell on the paps with this clever trick. In 2007, Radcliffe told Jay Leno he’d prank the paparazzi who camped outside the stage door of his play Equs by wearing the same outfit every night. “I would wear the same jacket and zip it up so they couldn’t see what I was wearing underneath, and the same hat,” he said. “They became un-publishable, which was hilarious because there’s nothing better than seeing the paparazzi get really frustrated.”

Dustin Hoffman 

Dustin Hoffman played a little game of hide and seek when he crossed paths with the paparazzi in 2015, but it’s not the first time he’s pranked the hell out of snappers trying to nab his pic. 

Shoutout to all these celebrities for their expert pranks and giving the paps a taste of their own medicine.
