I know, I know, we’ve heard before that Beyonce is not at all interested in becoming besties, or even acquaintances, with Kim Kardashian. We’ve heard that even though Kim is dating Kanye, the BFF of Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z, Beyonce has made a “No Kardashians Allowed” rule. We’ve heard a lot of things, you guys, but none of it’s true. No, Kim and Beyonce are totally friends. Got it?
From Us Weekly:
After touring Cannes, France last week and unexpectedly parting with some ”sentimental” items in her luggage, Kim Kardashian was looking to let loose.
Before making an appearance at The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s resort in Atlantic City, NJ on Sunday, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star made a beeline for Beyonce’s concert with pal Brittny Gastineau and her makeup artist Mario at Revel’s Ovation Hall. Kardashian and Gastineau enjoyed a night of dancing and singing along with the songstress’ chart-topping hits.
Backstage, Kardashian, 31, got a chance to chat with the woman of the evening herself, and the pair were seen greeting each other with an embrace and dancing together. Beyonce’s husband of four years, Jay-Z, is best friends with Kanye West, Kardashian’s serious boyfriend.
“Kim thought it was such a great show,” a source tells Us Weekly. “There’s always some random rumors there is tension between them and there totally isn’t! Kim had so much fun.”
The E! star is one of several A-listers who made it out to Beyonce’s four-concert weekend, which marked her post-baby performance debut since giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy in January.
On Saturday, First Lady Michelle Obama, 48, and her daughters Malia, 13, and Sasha, 10, watched the show from a private box where they did the “Single Ladies” dance together and rocked out to “Crazy in Love.” Oprah’s BFF Gayle King sat nearby.
Ok, I have a few thoughts on this story, so I’ll go ahead and break them down:
- Those “sentimental items” that Kim lost? She’s saying that it was a pair of vintage sunglasses that her father gave her just before he died, and that the airline’s employees stole them, along with some items that were less sentimental and more expensive. Obviously she has a right to be upset about it, but why would you take something that means so much to you when you’re going to be doing a lot of flying?
- Does anyone else think that the source sounds suspiciously like Kim herself? Totally.
- This article seriously called Kim Kardashian an A-lister. No.
- Where do I get a video of Michelle Obama doing the “Single Ladies” dance?
Did I miss anything?

We’ve talked about Kim Kardashian‘s fashion choices a few times this week, remember? Specifically, we talked about how she seemed to be developing a trend of wearing memorable dresses that other celebrities wore before her. First there was her Gwyneth Paltrow dress, and then she stepped out in Cannes wearing the same dress that had been worn before by Zoe Saldana, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Katy Perry (not at the same time, of course, but if someone could draw that picture, that would be awesome). But now there’s some news that reveals that Kanye is really the one to blame for the bad fashion. Natch.
From the Daily News:
Rapper-turned-fashion-designer Kanye West has been giving Kim Kardashian some fashion advice.
“Kanye has been having chats with Kim about her style. He thinks she should be more like him, edgy with her choices. He keeps saying she should evolve as a fashion icon,” thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
Kim ran a clothing boutique with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian as well as her mother Kris Jenner before finding fame. She has also created a successful apparel line named Kardashian Kollection.
However, West thinks Kim needs to be more adventurous with the image.
“Kanye says she plays it safe too much so has been trying to pick outfits for her to wear and encourage her to be more daring,” the source said.
Rapper-turned-fashion designer Kanye West prefers his rumoured girlfriend Kim Kardashian to sport a natural look a la Duchess of Cambridge Catherine Middleton. The rapper has been advising his reality TV star girlfriend’s style team on how he wants her to look, with Middleton as a reference point.”Kanye does like to get involved with Kim’s look. He actually has a lot of input, he has amazing style so we take his opinions to heart and I say, ‘Okay, I’ll try it’,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Kardashian’s stylist Rob Scheppy as saying.
“Catherine Middleton has influenced her look while in London. Catherine’s amazing. We watched her wedding and we thought it was beautiful,” he said.
West, who has his own women’s fashion line DW Kanye West, is not afraid to speak his mind, and dislikes it if Kardashian wears too much make-up.
“Kanye’s not afraid to say what he likes. He definitely likes the less-is-more look. Everyone wants to look good for their man, so Kim will listen and say, ‘Okay. I’ll go with what my boyfriend says’,” Scheppy added.
Ok, first off, no, everyone does not want to look good for their man. Sometimes people want to be comfortable, and sometimes people want to look how they want to look. I get wanting to get dressed up every now and again, but if your significant other would think less of you because of your makeup or your clothes, then maybe you should find a different significant other. Also, Kim’s been modeling and “designing clothes” for quite a while, and she’s basically famous because people thinks she looks good, so I think she’s got this whole area covered.
Besides, is anyone actually going to take Kanye seriously when it comes to fashion? Did everyone forget what his actual designs look like?

Just a couple of days ago, Kim Kardashian went to a party in Cannes wearing the same dress that Gwyneth Paltrow wore to the Emmys last year. And then the next day, she wore that dress that you see in that picture up there. It’s my belief that Kim is trying to reach her maximum potential for twinsies, because a handful of other celebrities have already worn this awful dress.
The first lady to wear the dress was Zoe Saldana, back in August. Her dress included a little white train, and I can’t decide if it helps the dress or if it just makes its tragic hideousness a little more fancy:
In November, model Alessandra Ambrosio wore it to an event. Alessandra’s version looks the most similar to Kim’s, so maybe Kim is trying to reach out to her the hardest. Or maybe it’s just the luck of the twinsie draw. We can’t really be sure at this point:
And then Katy Perry wore the dress while she was in Paris for Fashion Week in March. Her particular dress is in a different color, but it’s the same terrible idea:
Does it seem weird to anybody else that Kim wore very recognizable dresses worn by very recognizable celebrities twice in just a couple of days? And it’s not even that the dresses have been worn before – even with Kim’s vast amount of money, it’s silly to think that every single dress she ever wears to an event can be completely original – it’s that they’re such distinct dresses that have definitely caused a buzz before. It’s like, what’s she going to wear tomorrow? Bjork’s swan dress?

Last year, Gwyneth Paltrow wore an awful, awful dress to the Emmys. She should never have worn it in the first place, but if she absolutely had to, then it should have been stripped from her body and burned by her servants immediately after the event. Of course, that’s how things would go in a perfect world. Since this world isn’t perfect, Kim Kardashian wore the same awful dress to a party in Cannes.
This is interesting because Kim and Gwyneth are both pretty unlikable ladies, and if they’re both wearing the same unlikable dress, well, then we’ve got a whole mess of horrible then, don’t we? The question is which of these two looks less awful.
Here’s another shot of Gwyneth:
And here’s Kim:
Man, I really, really despise that dress. That being said, I think Kim might pull it off just a little better. Gwyneth has more of a straight figure, where Kim (obviously) has a lot more curves. I think those curves make the top stay in place a little better, so it’s not so obvious that this is a damn formal belly shirt. As the late, great Whitney Houston said, it’s not right, but it’s ok.
But what do you guys think?

Aww, bless your hearts! It’s been over a month since we last showed you any new lingerie ads featuring those lovable Kardashians! I know you’ve been just sick over this, and I know that you can’t bring yourself to purchase a piece of lingerie or swimwear until you’ve seen it modeled on the body of a Kardashian woman. I’m truly sorry for this, and it will never happen again, if I can help it.
But instead of prolonging your heartache even more, let’s go ahead and discuss the photo, all right?
It’s pretty similar to the other ads in a couple of ways. Khloe, despite being covered up (again), is the first thing your eye, or at least my eye, goes to in the photo. She’s also the fiercest Kardashian, by far. Kim and her rack look way Photoshopped. And Kourtney, well … she’s there. I appreciate Kourtney and everything, but this just doesn’t seem like her thing.
And just because I feel bad that it’s been so long since you’ve seen one of these ads, I have an extra bit of Kardashian news for you: they’re not going anywhere! We already knew that they signed a contract for three more seasons, but last week, we pondered if people still cared about them. Guess what: they do! The premiere of the seventh season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which aired on Sunday, had nearly three million viewers, which was up 16% from the last season premiere. So yeah, their popularity is apparently on the rise. So drink that in for a moment.
Did you guys watch the show on Sunday? Are you going to make a purchase from the Kardashian Kollection? Are you still trying to boycott this family? Let’s talk about it!

Sorry, but yes, people do still care about the Kardashians. A few weeks ago, we learned that the family signed on for three more seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and with the stunts that Kris Jenner pulls, I don’t think they’ll have a problem with getting viewers. But here’s the good news: it looks like people are starting to care less about the Kardashians. And that’s something, right?
From the Huffington Post:
Over the years, the Kardashians have made a fortune selling almost every aspect of their lives — from baby pictures to wedding exclusives — to celebrity weekly magazines. The sisters have even posed in bikinis to make a little extra cash. But after their long and profitable run, it looks like interest in the family is starting to run out.
“No one wanted exclusive access to Kourtney’s baby shower,” the editor of a weekly magazine told me. “Kris [Jenner] tried to trick everyone, [saying] the shower was going to other magazines for $80,000 so everyone would bid higher. But it backfired on her and, in the end, she just gave the pictures to US Weekly for almost nothing.”
A spokesperson for US Weekly declined to comment on whether the magazine bought the images and, if so, how much they paid.
“The weekly magazine market is changing week by week,” another insider tells me. “There are so many reality stars willing to give stories away to get attention that selling access no longer is worth paying the big bucks.”
Still, celebrities are continuing to make money from selling their private photos.
Jessica Simpson recently sold her new baby girl’s pictures to People magazine for $800,000, but that figure pales in comparison to the record $14 million Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got for pictures of their twins back in 2008.
And although Kris didn’t get as much as she wanted for access to Kourtney’s baby shower, insiders tell me to expect momma Kardashian to attempt to sell images of Kourtney’s new baby when she arrives.
As further proof that people don’t care as much about these people as they used to, the most exciting thing I got out of that whole story was that we’re probably going to get to see pictures of Jessica Simpson‘s baby soon. How precious will those pictures be? Way more precious than pictures from Kourtney’s baby shower, to be honest.
