Surprisng Celebrity BFFS
Celebrity life isn’t all make-ups and break-ups. These celebrity best friends are some of Hollywood’s longest-lasting couples. But what we want to know is, which BFF pair are you?
Beyonce Knowles And Gwyneth Paltrow
The Unexpected Twosome: We don’t know that we would have paired the 33-year-old chart-topper and 42-year-old A-list actress to be celebrity besties for life. But sometimes the best friendships form just when you’re not expecting them.
Tichina Arnold And Tisha Campbell-Martin
The Best Work Buddies: Work can be rough — until you find your BFF on the job. Tichina and Tisha have been BFF’s since they met on the set of Little Shop of Horrors in 1986 — nearly 30 years ago.
Rihanna And Melissa Forde
The Protective Pair: Mess with Rihanna and you’ll have to deal with Melissa Forde. These two celebrity BFFs always have eachother’s backs, whether it comes to exes, Twitter shade or celebrity stans.
Tanaya Henry And Trey Songz
BFFs of the Opposite Sex These two cuties are so close that they’ve had to battle rumors that they’re really together. But that’s just one of the perils for falling in “best friends” with someone of the opposite sex.
Lala And Ciara
Should Have Been Sisters: Like a lot of super-close BFFs, Lala and Ciara have been hanging out so much that people are starting to say that they look alike.
Kim Coles And Erika Alexander
The Rocks: Every group of friends has a pair of BFFs holding it all together. And for the Living Single crew, those rocks were Kim Coles and Erika Alexander. When we heard that they were celebrity best friends in real life too, it made us want to watch Living Single all over again. And since they both keep in touch with everyone on the crew, what we want to know is: can these two BFFs get together and get us a reunion?
Janelle Monae And Erykah Badu
The May December Friendship: It shouldn’t be surprising to hear that these two musical innovators call each other “best friend.” And Erykah says that being friends with the younger star keeps her on her toes:
“Janelle Monae is keeping me on my A-game — secretly, I feel that I have to go out and crush her. We’re best friends, though: she’ll only find that out by reading this.”
We’re sure the feeling is mutual.
Jay-Z And Kanye
The Power Couple: These two are one of the music world’s most powerful BFFs. Too bad their wives can’t seem to get along…
Christina Milian And Lil Wayne
Homie Lover Friends: These two have battled rumors that they’re just in it for the industry. But in a recent interview, Christina says that her relationship with Wayne has nothing to do with PR. She says he’s the “best friend” she’s “needed and not had in years.” Adorable.
Oprah Winfrey And Gayle King
Basically Life Partners: They say you’re not really BFFs unless you spend so much time together that someone mistakenly thinks you’re together. But when you’ve been rocking since 1976, it’s a life-partner bond.
Danielle Brooks And Samira Wiley
The Gay/Straight Alliance: Turns out, Taystee and Poussey aren’t just on-screen BFFs; they hang out in real life too. They’ve been best buddies since their Julliard days, and Danielle even helped Samira get cast on Orange Is The New Black.
Kimora Lee Simmons And Tyra Banks
Same-Path Sisters Do you and your BFF basically lead the same lives? Kimora Lee and Tyra both started modeling as teens and both turned fashion moguls in their 30s. No wonder they’re attached at the hip — Tyra is even godmother to Kimora’s oldest, Ming Lee.
Kelly Rowland And Brandy
SisterFriends: Kelly and Brandy coined this term for closer-than-friends BFFs. They have the same career, the same birthday, the same likes, and Kelly says that’s just the tip of their celebrity friendship: “Bran just gets me and I get her. We’re like sisterfriends.”
Serena Williams And Selita Ebanks
Social Media Sisters: All you have to do to know that Serena Williams and Selita Ebanks are BFFs is to click “follow.” These two celebrity best friends are always Tweeting their love for one another.
Lil’ Kim And Lisa Raye
Diva’s Of A Feather: These two BFFs stay in the headlines for drama, but they don’t let any of it get in the way of flocking together.
