Feuding Oasis brothers Liam, 41, and Noel Gallagher, 46, will come face to face for the first time in more than a year at their niece's wedding in Co Kildare, Ireland, this weekend. The brothers have barely spoken since Noel quit Oasis four years ago.

What will they talk about to the press if they ever decide to reconcile? We collected (and illustrated) a handful of nasty things the two have said about each other in 2013.

Trouble seems to follow the model-turned-quasi-pop princess. Last month, she and boyfriend Zachary Cole Smith of DIIV were arrested for drug possession. Shortly after, Ferreira canceled her remaining U.S. tour dates with Vampire Weekend due to a vocal injury.

Despite Ferreira's setbacks, it seems like the world is finally ready for the outspoken songstress. Her highly-anticipated debut album, Night Time, My Time, is out net week, October 29th. The controversial album cover, shot by director Gaspar NoƩ, features Ferreira topless in a shower. We haven't found the correlation between the brooding image and its catchy '80s-inspired pop tracks, but that's one way to ensure people will Google the album.

On the subject of the artwork being a publicity stunt, the singer told Stereogum:
"It's like, are you kidding me? I'd sell way more if I just put a picture of my face. That's the fact. I'd sell more copies of me just looking cute. That's what sells more. That's what sells at Wal-Mart. Not someone in a bathtub looking like they're about to kill someone. Topless."

No one tells Ferreira what to do. Here's what she had to say about the music industry:

"HURRY UP WITH MY DAMN CROISSANTS" - King Joffrey Baratheon
Twice last week people the world over stopped what they were doing to quote Kanye West via Twitter. First from his interview with New York Times; "I am the nucleus," "I just want dopeness," "It's only led me to complete awesomeness at all times" being the particular favorites. Then, after The Gospel According to Kanye, Yeezus, leaked Friday, came the tweets of his many of its lyrics: "They be ballin' in the D-League/ I be speaking Swag-hili," "Have you ever asked your bitch for other bitches," and, of course, anything from "I Am a God."
