Walking a red carpet seems stressful, especially with so many eyes and cameras on you. Sometimes, those cameras capture some unseemly moments of celebs' interpersonal drama.

In a viral video, Tiffany shouted Shakira's name from across the room and then kept calling for her as she got closer. Shakira didn't even turn around to see who was yelling for her.

In response to criticism of her behavior, Tiffany tweeted, ""This soooooo interesting to me. If you feel like I did to [sic] much, All of y'all better be buying @shakira new album! This experience has Aloud [sic] me to realize how truly popular I am. I appreciate all of your opinions."

2.At the 2023 Academy Awards, Vanessa Hudgens was interviewing celebs as ABC's red carpet correspondent, but her ex, Best Actor nominee Austin Butler, was interviewed by her cohost Ashley Graham. Later in the night, as Austin exited the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty, Vanessa kept her eyes on her phone as she brushed past him.

Vanessa seemingly responded to the full video — which you can see here — by sharing a video of  Malala Yousafzai telling Jimmy Kimmel, "I only talk about peace." She captioned it, "Let's all be on the 'I only talk about peace' train. Ok?”

3.While Sofía Vergara was giving a red carpet interview at the 2014 Angel Ball, her ex-fiancé Nick Loeb snuck up behind her mid-answer. She barely acknowledged him without missing a beat.

On The Graham Norton Show, Amy said, "[I saw] Kim and Kanye standing there, just owning it, just being short and important.

So that was comforting."
