I don’t really understand why some people were so up in arms about Beyonce and Kim Kardashian hanging out together in public. I realize the story is better if Beyonce acts like The Queen of All and refuses to even meet ANY Kardashian. But it’s not like Beyonce is so… what’s the word? She’s not Gwyneth Paltrow. I get the feeling that Gwyneth keeps a physical list of “cool people that are worthy of her friendship” and if you’re not on the list, Dame Goop will not hang. Beyonce is friends with Goop, of course, but that doesn’t mean Bey cosigns every pretentious, snobby, condescending demand of Goop’s. Bey seems like the kind of person who would hang out with Kanye West (arguably someone she sees as a brother or some kind of relation) and his girlfriend, whoever his girlfriend might be. But hey… that’s just my take. While I don’t hate either Beyonce or Kim, they’re not my favorite people either. But Beyonce’s super-fans are PISSED.
Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian hung out over the weekend and RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned the Single Ladies singer’s fans are outraged. The two were front and center at Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Birmingham, U.K. “Watch The Throne” concert supporting their significant others, and the two girls bonding over their men has already put a kink in Beyoncé’s reputation.
“Kim Kardashian is not the sort of girlfriend that Beyoncé fans envision the new mother having,” an insider told RadarOnline.com. “Beyoncé has an air of class and sophistication to her, while Kim is famous because of a sex tape and a failed marriage.”
But with Beyoncé’s husband and Kim’s boyfriend touring together, the two girls are sure to be spending more time together and it won’t do any favors for Beyoncé’s reputation.
“Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian in the same picture let alone the same sentence is tragic,” one fan tweeted.
Another fan tweeted, “if your role model is Kim Kardashian, I can’t take you seriously, Beyoncé is a way better role model. She’s respectful of herself.”
“Beyoncé tries to stay out of the tabloids, while they’re Kim’s livelihood,” the source said. “It’s an odd pairing.”
Yes, Beyonce hangs out with Gwyneth and Michelle Obama. Kim gets excoriated publicly by Jon Hamm, Daniel Craig and she’s publicly Mean-Girl’d by Anna Wintour. So… they’re not equal. Beyonce’s fame is based on talent and hard work. Kim’s fame is based on a sex tape and no sense of shame or privacy. But… I kind of consider both of them famewhores, just in different ways, to different degrees. Bey has to be thecenter of attention, always. She’s a total diva. And Kim is a famewhore, straight up, but without Beyonce’s diva ‘tude. Does that make sense? Kim seems accessible, and I don’t think she holds herself “above” people. Bey is all “PAY ATTENTION TO ME, I AM THE QUEEN.”
Still… who says celebrities have to live in bubbles? I kind of like Beyonce more now that I know she’s not an elitist about her casual friendships. Meanwhile, Goop is probably rocking and juice-cleansing away the demons.
