14 Songs You Didn't Know Were About Other Celebrities

List Rules
Vote up the most surprising songs about fellow stars.

Some songs were quite obviously written as part of a well-publicized celebrity feud (Taylor Swift's “Bad Blood” almost certainly calls out Katy Perry, for instance). But then there are songs that are secretly about other stars. It's not surprising that there are so many - musicians hang out with other famous people and write songs about what they know. But once you learn who the lyrics are really about, the songs about other celebrities take on a whole new meaning.

A number of these songs about famous people are not-so-subtle diss tracks, like "Cry Me a River" by Justin Timberlake or "Obsessed" by Mariah Carey, which is a musical eye roll directed at Eminem. Others are tender love songs – try to listen to Coldplay's "Fix You" without tearing up after you learn its real message. Just don't expect to see any songs about Taylor Swift here. She's had enough to earn her own list.
