Kate Miller-Heidke And Anthony Callea Feud Dates Back Years

The sudden feud between Anthony Callea and Kate Miller-Heidke actually dates back to 2005 when Kate wrote a song titled ‘Australian Idol’.

The lyrics took a swipe at Anthony. “I flipped to Channel 10 and before I knew it I was watching a really short guy / Singing that really annoying song by Craig David,” she sang.

The Miller-Heidke/Callea war of the words appeared to be over until Monday night when Kate appeared on Q&A. Callea tweeted into the show, “”There is one person on panel tonight that is a total waste of space … embarrassing rep for Gen Y!”

The next day Kate fired back three words to @anthonycallea “Pot Kettle Fuckwit”.

Anthony wasn’t Kate’s only critic. One viewer tweeted, “Surely Kate Miller-Heidke was meant to be on The Voice but took a wrong turn and ended up on Q and A.”

Kate did air her opinion about Prime Minister Julia Gillard calling the PM “uninspiring” and “crushingly disappointing”.

Kate’s Australian Idol song had a name change to ‘Career Advice’ after she signed with Sony. The song has not been officially released on any Kate album but has been performed live often.

More lyrics from the song are:

The next Sunday, I had a pretty bad hangover
Feeling kinda grumpy,
Sitting on the couch, eating Pringles feeling sorry for myself.
I flipped to Channel 10 and before I knew it I was watching a really short guy
Singing that really annoying song by Craig David.

Suddenly I rose to my feet it must have been divine intervention
I saw the light in front of me, and I screamed!

Why am I watching Australian Idol? (God!)
Am I really reduced to this pitiful state? Jesus!
I may as well just head down to my local karaoke bar
Or better still just change to SBS.
You better believe it I’ll change to ABC
So Marcia, Holden, whatever your name is¦
Shove it up your ass!
