When Kim Kardashian started dating Kanye West, rumors flew that Beyonce wasn’t too welcoming of her husband’s bff’s new girlfriend. Some sources say R&B’s Queen Bey even refused to be photographed with E!’s Queen K. This sounded ridiculous, yet was easy to believe considering the paparazzi stalk their every move but (except for that time they were sitting four people apart on the front row during New York’s Fashion Week) you never saw the two photographed together.
Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé got chummy while watching their men perform at a Kanye West/ Jay-Z gig in Birmingham, England, on Friday. In another photo taken Friday night, Kim looked like she was singing along while Beyonce rested her head on the reality star’s shoulder. It’s the first time Jay and Yeezy’s lady loves have been photographed together.
Though they’re both megastars in their own right, when it comes to celebrity, Beyonce and Kim are basically polar opposites. Two prime examples: the details of Beyonce’s intimate wedding to Jay Z are still mostly private while Kim’s wedding to Kris Humphries was a reality show special. And back in 2008, Beyonce explained the absence of an engagement ring telling Essence: ”People put too much emphasis on that. It’s just material and it’s just silly to me.” Well, we all know Kim didn’t find anything silly about parading around town in a 20-carat engagement ring from a man she now says “bored” her. Then again, Beyonce does have a $5 million, 18-carat flawless diamond ring so maybe the two aren’t so different after all.
I’d love to hear a conversation between these two. Kim could talk about buying Ye a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 and Beyonce could one-up her by talking about the time she bought Jay a Bombardier Challenger 850 jet. They could lament over trying to find jeans that fit their small waists and big booties at the same time or what it’s like to be slightly more famous than their famous significant others.
Seriously though, they say opposites attract and this newfound friendship might be good for both of them. Beyonce could show Kim how to tone it down and embrace a little privacy and Kim could encourage Beyonce to open up more and show some personality to her fans.
No matter what, it’s great to see female celebs bonding in the spotlight and thus contradicting the popular notion that “women don’t get along”. Here’s hoping we see more of these two together.
What do you think of Beyonce and Kim Kardashian’s friendship?
