Radar Online is reporting this morning that rapper Ludacris has squashed his legendary beef with television presenter Bill O’Reilly.
In an exclusive interview the controversial rapper confirmed he confronted the conservative television host at a recent event and extended the hip hop hand of friendship.
“I identified that I wanted to speak to him when I saw his name on the guest list. I looked at what table he was on, and I walked my a** straight to that table.
“He wasn’t expecting to see me, at all. The look on his face when he saw me approaching… priceless.”
Of the peace-brokering, Ludacris said: “The conversation we had was confidential, however, let’s just say it was a good conversation and good came out of it.
“From there, we came to a common ground. To be honest with you, we came together and did an event for charity – as crazy as it sounds. Perhaps everything happens for a reason.”
BOOOOO! NOT FAIIIIIIIIR!
I mean, I know that we live in a sad and complicated world full of war and starvation and abject human suffering, and that two multi-millionaires taking pot-shots at each other across their respective heavily-mediatized bows is mostly an act in narcissistic self-aggrandizing intended to sell records/appeal to viewers, and that ultimately the resolution of said “feud” is both better for the world’s psychic balance sheets and also a more respectful and mature use of both of these grown adult men’s energy and fame. No duh.
But what about those of us who spend our lives in quiet, lonely desperation, tracking celebrity feuds and hoping for a hair-and-tooth-filled bloodbath? What about those of us with elite SuperUser accounts on CafePress where we grind out the latest celebrity feud TEAM WHOEVER t-shirts? WHAT ABOUT US? No one ever thinks of us. People are always eventually coming together and doing secret charities or Super Bowl ads, as if it turns out that being a multi-millionaire celebrity is a more determining factor in someone’s decision-making than standing up for what you can sensationalize and hyperbolize.
R.I.P. the Ludacris and Bill O’Reilly feud. You are in feud heaven now, making casually racist statements and grandiose boast-rhymes about another man’s wife with the feud angels.
