Minaj mocked Kim for selling the song via PayPal, and the pair has yet to call a truce on their bitter rivalry.

Kelly Osbourne has mocked Christina Aguilera for being "fat".

The 26-year-old star has reignited her war of words with the 'Dirrty' singer during an appearance on E! TV show 'Fashion Police' while commenting on the unflattering outfit Christina wore at the Michael Jackson tribute concert in Cardiff, Wales, earlier this month.

Co-host George Kotsiopoulous said: "I'm looking at this and thinking, 'Well, she's put on weight. This just isn't flattering.' But this is just a crappy outfit, regardless. No matter what shape your body is in, it's just bad."

Patti Labelle Lady Marmalade

R+B superstar Patti Labelle has called in Hollywood's leading dog behaviour expert to help her tame her wild pet NASIR.
The Lady Marmalade singer rescued the mutt four years ago (03) when he was a puppy, but her love for the pooch turned to fear when the dog tried to attack her one day.
LaBelle recalls, "I walked by one day and he really tried to get at me."
The singer decided to call on TV 'dog whisperer' CESAR MILAN to help her tame Nasir for a new National Geographic Channel special.
On the show, which airs in America next month (FEB07), Milan, who has helped many top stars control aggressive pets, says, "Nasir here is an insecure large-breed dog."
Using his tried and tested techniques, the dog expert managed to persuade his famous client to hand-feed her pet for the first time and then take him for a walk.

Mya Lady Marmalade

R+B star Mya brought her feuding, estranged parents back together again when she gave them the job of managing her career.
After a series of flops, the Lady Marmalade singer decided she needed to chance her management and she moved back home to Washington and invited her parents to take over her career.
But the family deal came with rules - her mum and dad would have to get along.
Mya says, "I was like, 'Look, I'm gonna come back home and y'all are going to have to talk to each other. You're going to be my manager, she's my business manager. I'm going to force y'all to grow up and talk.'"
Mya's father has since moved on as the singer's manager, according to reports.

A marijuana-laced cookie sent R+B star Mya to the hospital when she suffered a panic attack.
The Lady Marmalade star was partying with friends recently when she was persuaded to sample the hash-cookie and get high - but she had a terrible reaction to the treat and thought she was dying.
She recalls, "I was rushed to the hospital and my heart, I don't know how fast it was going, but I thought I was going to explode and die.
"They put me on these pills every couple of hours to slow my heart rate down and put me to sleep. I was sweating and freezing at the same time.
"I just said, 'God, I am so sorry... I will not do that again. I do not want to go out like this.'"
