There's nothing like a good celebrity feud.

Sure, we all go through bad breakups, say things we wish we could take back and argue with others, but when the stars do it, it's so much more interesting!

As the year winds down, we've examined 2010's top celebrity mistresses and sex tapes. Now, THG takes a look at the year's 10 best celebrity spats here ...

10. Brett Favre vs. Jenn Sterger    

In a classic he said/she said deal, a former Jets reporter alleged sexual harassment by the NFL legend, who says he was just hollering. Perhaps. Some say the biggest crime was thinking Brett Favre's small junk was going to impress somebody.

9. Sarah Palin vs. PETA

We'd rank Sarah Palin higher, but public wars of words lose some of their edge when you go out of your way to start them. Still, her exchange with PETA over hunting was classic. Bristol Palin and Willow Palin had some good ones, too.

8. Kid Rock vs. Steven Tyler

The former called the latter's hiring by American Idol "the stupidest thing he's ever done in his life" and termed him "an idiot" for good measure. The Aerosmith rocker responded that Kid is "just jealous." Not sure about that one, Steve.

Kanye West simply cannot stay out of controversial situations.

Perhaps he's to blame for that, but to hear him tell it, the Today show to blame for his latest highly-publicized incident. Talking to Matt Lauer, the rapper empathized with President George W. Bush about being called racist.

The feud appeared to be over right then and there. However ...

VIEW FROM THE WEST: Kanye did not appreciate being put on the spot. Whether you agree with him or not, you can empathize with how rattled he seemed.

While pensive and contrite, Kanye became visibly upset when the show played, while he was speaking, two different clips: First, Bush expressing pain over West's remarks, and later, Kanye's infamous interruption of Taylor Swift.

This sent West off into a full-blown Twitter rant, it also has received heated reactions by fans on both sides. Did Matt and NBC take it too far in rehashing the clips? Or was this, as Lauer said, simply what the TV program does?

Follow the jump, watch Kanye on Today and see what you think:

Kanye West and George W. Bush can both be stubborn individuals, and both have been criticized plenty. But they've resolved their feud like mature adults.

In a taped interview on NBC's Today show, the impulsive rapper told Matt Lauer that he now regrets saying Bush "doesn't care about black people."

"I would tell George Bush: In my moment of frustration, I didn't have the grounds to call him a racist," West said. "I believe that in a situation of high emotion like that, we as human beings don't always choose the right words."

HUG IT OUT: Dubya and Kanye are so over it.

In Bush's memoir, Decision Points, he calls the moment "disgusting" and worst of his presidency. But, asked if he forgives West, Bush said "absolutely."

Appearing separately on Today, the much-maligned 43rd POTUS, upon seeing a video of West's humble retraction, replied "I appreciate that."

He also added that he didn't mean to single out West. "It wasn't just Kanye West who talked like that during Katrina. I cited him as an example."

Kanye West has responded to George W. Bush’s recent statement regarding his controversial post-Hurricane Katrina remarks, and oddly feels he can relate.

Say what now?

Five years later, Kanye says he can "connect" with W and can sympathize much more with the former President he once said “doesn’t care about black people.”

Kanye actually feels sympathy for G-Dubs now.

Bush recently told Matt Lauer that hearing Kanye say that during a Hurricane Katrina telethon was “a disgusting moment,” perhaps the worst of his presidency.

A Houston radio station asked West for his thoughts on this, and the response he gave was gracious, to say the least ... albeit a bit of a stretch, logically.

“I definitely can understand the way he feels, to be accused of being a racist in any way, because the same thing happened to me, where I got accused of being a racist,” West said, referring to the aftermath of his run-in with Taylor Swift.

President George W. Bush endured a lot of criticism in his day, but he says that when he heard Kanye West accusing him of not caring about black people after Hurricane Katrina, "it was one of the most disgusting moments in my Presidency.”

It was a pretty harsh line. True? That's up for debate.

Kanye Picture

Bush taped an interview with Matt Lauer that will air on a special prime time Matt Lauer Reports on NBC November 8. It’s to promote his new book, Decision Points.

We're curious to see what his ghostwriter has to say.

The subjects of the interview were wide-ranging, but the former President was very passionate on the subject of West’s criticism of the way Bush handled the Katrina aftermath, according to quotes from the interview NBC released.

“He called me a racist,” Bush tells Lauer. “I didn’t appreciate it then. I don’t appreciate it now. It’s one thing to say, ‘I don’t appreciate the way he’s handled his business.’ It’s another thing to say, ‘This man’s a racist.’ I resent it, it’s not true.”

Rumors are swirling that if you drive down I-35 in Minnesota, you'll see a billboard featuring a smiling George W. Bush accompanied by the question "Miss me yet?"

This was initially discredited as a photoshopped hoax, but it's real. But the dual mysteries surrounding who paid for the ad, and their motivation, remain.

The President of the United States

Are they Obama supporters sarcastically hoping to remind people about George W., or Bush fans sincerely yearning for the "good" days of the past administration?

Mary McNamara, the manager at the Minneapolis office of Schubert & Hoey Outdoor Advertising, the company which owns and leases out the billboard, says:

"The ad was purchased by a group of small business owners who wish to remain anonymous." However, "some people in the group were Obama supporters."

McNamara added that the message the group hoped to convey was one of "Hope and change, where is it?" She went on to say that she has yet to receive any negative feedback about the ad, which has been up for a few weeks.

Not everyone buys that. Cindy Erickson, the chairwoman of the Democratic Party in Chisago County, where the billboard is located, suspects the ad's funders are in actuality conservative activists posing as Obama supporters.

"I don't have any idea who did it, but my thought was that they're Tea Party people," she said. "Regardless, it's been the subject of many conversations around here."

Minnesota was a "blue" state in '08, but Chisago is part of a Republican-leaning string of suburban counties that Obama lost about 55-45 in the presidential election.

While it's subject to interpretation, Obama has been under fire (and hitting back) of late. Has George W., however unwittingly, joined Sarah Palin in laying into him?

What do you think of the Bush billboard?

The 2008 election is over, but the same dude is still president until January 20, and in the increasingly rare cases when his handlers let him out of his cage for a public appearance, there's always a chance for entertainment.

Case in point: yesterday an Iraqi journalist threw two shoes at President George W. Bush at a news conference during his surprise visit to Iraq. The prez ducked.

Among Muslims, throwing one's shoes at another person, or sitting so that the bottom of a shoe faces another person, is apparently considered a major insult.

It could be considered warranted, as the man is not smart. Peep it:
