Jinger & Amy Duggar Bury the Hatchet … But Why Were They Feuding In the First Place?

Back in November of 2016, Jinger Duggar married Jeremy Vuolo at one of those massively-attended ceremonies that have become a common occurrence in Springdale, Arkansas in recent years.

With few exceptions, the Duggars marry very young, and they invite hundreds of guests to their weddings, including, of course, their many siblings and other familial relations.

But as fans pointed out following Jinger’s wedding, one of the most famous members of the extended Duggar clan was not in attendance at the ceremony or the reception.

In fact, Amy Duggar was 1,300 miles away in Las Vegas.

As you might imagine, Jinger’s ultra-conservative family are no great fans of Sin City, and many assumed that Amy’s choice of vacation destination was her way of flipping the bird to Jim Bob and company,

Adding fuel to the fire of a major feud was the revelation that Jinger stopped following Amy on Instagram.

As In Touch Weekly points out, the Duggar obsessives of Reddit went wild when they noticed that Amy was posting selfies from Vegas as Jinger was saying “I do” in Arkansas.

“Maybe Jinger and Amy had a falling out,” one fan speculated.

“I actually bought the plans excuse. Duggar weddings are always announced like two months prior,” remarked another, referring to Amy’s explanation that she was merely attending to a prior engagement.

“They could’ve easily bought tickets to another destination before that.”

“I think the family is huge enough now that having every person attend every event is getting increasingly unlikely,” a third fan noted.

“There is no rift between me and my cousins at all. It was just wrong timing,” Amy told Entertainment Tonight at the time.

“We already had something scheduled.”

But fans weren’t buying it. 

In addition to the fact that Jinger had cut ties with her cousin on social media, the whole situation came on the heels of reports that the Duggars were no longer allowed to talk to Amy, per Jim Bob’s orders.

This week, Jinger began following Amy on Instagram again, but for many, even that’s not sufficient proof that she’s been welcomed back into the family.

After all, Jinger’s reputation as the family rebel is well-deserved., and if anyone were to defy Jim Bob’s commands and get in touch with Amy, it would be her.

In all likelihood, Jinger never harbored any ill will toward Amy at all.

It’s a fact that Duggar wedding dates are often kept secret until just weeks before the wedding, and Amy may have already made other plans.

What seems far more likely is that she was ordered to end her relationship with Amy and is now going against Jim Bob’s wishes.

Keep an eye on this situation, folks.

The feud may be over, but there’s a good chance the drama is just beginning.


Taylor Swift and Katy Perry: Did They Finally Bury the Hatchet?!

It feels like Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have been stuck in this petty feud forever, doesn’t it?

Like, yes, it has been literal years since the first became mortal enemies, but still, it’s really been dragging out.

It’s been over three years now since Taylor released “Bad Blood” — and since she revealed that it was about a fellow pop star.

“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not,” Taylor said in a 2014 interview. “She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'”

She said that the previous year (2013 if you’re keeping up, which means that this feud is nearly five years old) “she did something so horrible” that made her realize “Oh, we’re just straight up enemies.”

“It had to do with business,” she explained. “She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.”

In all the time since this whole mess began, we learned what really happened: there were some backup dancers who toured with Katy, and then they toured with Taylor.

Before they went on tour with Taylor, Katy told them that she’d be touring again soon too, so if they wanted to work with her again, to be sure to work that out in their contracts with Taylor.

So they did, and when it was time for Katy’s tour, they left Taylor’s.

That’s it. That’s what this whole dumb thing is about.

Things sort of simmered for a while — they both acted shady here and there, or they did things that were perceived to be shady.

But earlier this year, Katy finally retaliated by releasing a diss track of her own in “Swish Swish.”

And after she released the song, she spent a whole, whole lot of time talking about Taylor.

She accused her of trying to “assassinate my character,” and she hinted that “karma” would be coming for her.

“There is the law of cause and effect,” Katy said in one interview. “You do something and there’s gonna be a reaction. And trust me, daddy, there’s gonna be a reaction.”

Then, in a podcast she did to promote her new album back in June, she said that she was “ready to let it go.”

“I forgive her and I’m sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her,” she said. “I think it’s actually, like, I think it’s time.”

“There are bigger fish to fry, and there are real problems in the world. You know what I’m saying? I love her, and I want the best for her.”

“Maybe I don’t agree with everything she does,” she continued, “and she doesn’t agree with everything I do, but I just really, truly want to come together in a place of love and forgiveness and understanding and compassion.”

And according to some new reports, it looks like they’ve finally been able to do that!

Taylor has been spotted in Miami this week, filming a music video for her song, “End Game.” And according to several people who spotted her, one of her backup dancers looks a whole, whole lot like Katy.

A source spoke with E! News and confirmed that Katy did film with Taylor, and that they made up while they were both in Miami.

We guess we’ll see if it’s true when the video comes out, but we do know that Katy was down in Florida earlier this week on her tour, so it’s definitely possible she could have set aside time to hang with Taylor.

So could it be? Is the dumb pop star feud of the century finally over?!

And if it is, is anyone else just a little disappointed?
