Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé seemed to be getting friendly whilst supporting their men from the side of the stage at the Watch The Throne tour earlier this month, but it seems their body language at the BET Awards told a very different story.
Once again, the ladies put their own merits aside to accompany Jay-Z and Kanye West at The Shine Auditorium festivities held against the backdrop of Tinseltown city Los Angeles, California. The foursome were seated on the front row together, with the boys taking the middle two seats and chatting and laughing together.
Beyonce and Kim were placed on the outer seats and made no effort to stretch across to talk to one another, and at times both seemed somewhat bored.
Reality TV queen Kim looked rather unimpressed that she was perched on the end and ended up befriending another famous lady for her Kodak moment - Nicki Minaj. The 31-year-old, who stepped out in an unzipped backless cream dress, appeared so out of her depth that she ended up tweeting from the event about Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
During the ceremony, the curvaceous beauty wrote: ‘Mason is so cute on the beach in DR #KUWTK. East coast turn to E NOW!!!!! Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s is on!!!!!! who’s excited?’
Kim and Kanye also chose not to walk the red carpet prior to the ceremony. Perhaps Beyoncé, who looked ravishing in a thigh-slashed lime green satin gown, intentionally avoided being overly friendly with Kim after her fans reportedly were ‘outraged’ by recent pics of the two together.
A source told Radar: ‘Beyoncé tries to stay out of the tabloids, while they’re Kim’s livelihood.’
Another insider told the New York Daily News that Kim is being strategic in gaining Beyoncé’s trust: ‘She’s hung with them a few times already, but she isn’t saying peep about them. She’s not tweeting or taking pictures with Beyoncé because she doesn’t want to seem desperate.’
Either way, both couples will no doubt be celebrating by raising a glass of bubbly later as the men were crowned with the prestigious honour of Best Group. While Beyoncé and Jay-Z married in 2008, Kim has only been dating the Gold Digger star since April.
Beyonce has been named the most beautiful woman in the world by US magazine, People.
The 30-year-old chart-topper - who is married to rapper Jay-Z - beat a host of stunning celebs to be crowned the World’s Most Beautiful Woman for 2012 by People magazine.
Beyonce, who gave birth to a daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, in January, told the mag: “I feel more beautiful than I’ve ever felt because I’ve given birth. I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this Earth.”
Beyonce has recently been receiving praise for her music fromm many other people in the business, with many talking about collaborations with the star. Earlier this month, Adele admitted that she would love to do a track with Beyoncé, and now Nicki Minaj has also claimed that she would love to work with the former Destiny’s Child singer.
However, it seems that the most likely duet would be Beyoncé and hubby Jay-Z. The pair have already written some material about their baby girl. The couple cannot get enough of their daughter and have penned a track about their joy.
Other beautiful women included on the list are Jennifer Lopez, Julia Roberts, Halle Berry and Angelina Jolie, who have previously topped the annual list.
The President of the United States of America, Barack Obama has hit out at rapper Kanye West, calling him a jackass. It is not the first time that Barack Obama has verbally abused Kanye West and it will probably not be the last time either.
Back in 2009, Barack Obama called Kanye West a jackass, after the rapper jumped on stage and interrupted Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards. Now Barack is at it again, once again calling Kanye West a jackass.
However, Barack Obama was not completely negative against Kanye West, as he did admit that he believes that Kanye does actually possess some talent but he still thinks that he is a jackass. Obama said, “I like Kanye. He’s a Chicago guy. Smart. He’s very talented. He is a jackass but he’s talented.”
It has been reported over the past few weeks that Kanye West is currently dating socialite Kim Kardashian, after the couple were spotted together on a number of occasions. Now it is believed that Kanye West refers to Kim Kardashian as his Beyoncé.
Singer Nicki Minaj has revealed how her music video for her track Beez in the Trap is a big thank you to her stripper fans. Nicki claims that she used to perform in strip clubs before she hit the big time and wanted to thank all of the strippers that she has ever met for supporting her.
Minaj explained to MTV News, “When I was doing my mixtapes, I would perform in strip clubs, I would perform in clubs and it was just like some of my most die-hard fans would be in these places.”
She added, “I wanted to kinda like honour them - kinda honour all my girls in the club and just say, ‘Thank you for the support’. When I see the strippers and all of that, they always show me love, so I wanted to kinda make a video around them.”
Rapper Nicki Minaj has claimed that, while she is not offended by people comparing her to Lady Gaga, it does annoy her a little. Nicki admitted that she believes that Lady Gaga is very talented and should be very proud of what she has achieved in the music industry, but claims that the two are completely different artists.
Minaj explained to ABC’s Nightline, “Offends me, no. Irks me, yes. We are in completely different lanes. First of all, I’m a rapper. I’m from southside Jamaica, Queens. I could say some really crazy lyrics right now, but I won’t. Why don’t I turn the cameras around and ask you?”
She added, “Gaga’s a fantastic artist, you know, she paved her way. She’s opened her own lane. But I think that I have my own lane, and we never cross. Ever.”
Nicki continued, “So, you know, I really don’t get the comparison anymore. Our music doesn’t sound the same. Our stage presence is not the same. I just can’t see the similarities.”
It seems that everybody in the music industry is looking to collaborate with someone at the moment and the person that most people want to collaborate with appears to be Beyoncé. Earlier this week, Adele admitted that she would love to do a track with Beyoncé and now Nicki Minaj has also claimed that she would love to work with the former Destiny’s Child singer.
Minaj explained, “My fans want a Beyoncé collab. That’s the only one.” Nicki then went on to admit that the regular fall outs that she seems to have with other artists do not really bother her, as she is fully focussed on her career and looks up to Beyoncé’s husband Jay-Z.
She added, “These little spats and these little issues, I rise to the occasion every time,” she added. “A lot of girls want it, but they haven’t been tested so much along the way.
Nicki continued, “A rap battle, I could do that in my sleep now. I’m trying to get paper. I watch what Jay-Z did and I feel like if he could do it, I could do it. Just ‘cause I’m a girl, doesn’t make me any different.”
Nicki Minaj is currently set to claim her first ever UK number one album this weekend, with her latest record Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.
English singer Adele has revealed that she would love to team up with American artist Beyoncé for a future collaboration. There have been a whole host of singers that have admitted to wanting to duet with Adele but it seems that she has her heart set on Beyoncé.
Adele explained, “I adore Beyoncé. I’ve been listening to her since I was about 11. I think her work as an artist and a singer is enviable in terms of the length of her career and how she’s grown and grown but most of my inspirations are old music and sadly they have all died.”
She then went on to discuss her next album, adding, “If I didn’t write my own songs, I’d be out next week with a new album. I have to take time and live a little bit. There were a good two years between my first and second albums, so it’ll be the same this time.”
Adele continued, “I don’t think I’ll feel the pressure for the next album to be as big as the last one because I know that’s not really possible. What’s happened with this album is very rare anyway.”
It has been suggested that singing couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z are set to team up for a duet, which the pair have written about their baby daughter Blue Ivy Carter. The couple cannot get enough of their daughter and have penned a track about their joy.
The new Beyoncé and Jay-Z song is set to go into detail about the pregnancy of Beyoncé, through to the birth and on to how much love they now have for their daughter. The single is set to be recorded in the coming weeks and will be released later this year.
An insider explained, “Jay-Z and Beyoncé are so overjoyed with being parents and they decided that the best way they could reveal this joy to their fans is by writing a song about it. Blue Ivy is absolutely gorgeous and they have every right to feel like the proudest parents in the world.”
There was a lot of speculation surrounding the pregnancy of Beyoncé, with many people claiming that it was all a fake. However, Beyoncé gave birth to a beautiful baby girl early this year and the song is set to discuss all of those issues.

Firework singer Katy Perry has revealed how she hopes that her duet with Rihanna will become one of the most iconic hits of our time. Katy admitted that she and Rihanna have been discussing releasing a track together but it has taken almost two years to get it right.
Perry explained, “I want it to be like that Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin song Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves not Beautiful Liar.” The Beyoncé and Shakira hit Beautiful Liar, was released in 2007 and managed to go to number 1 in eleven different countries.
Katy added, “We’ve collaborated on a lot of things, but just not songs yet. It’s one of those things that’s got so much build up that we have to deliver. But I definitely want to do something that is so iconic.” Perry continued by admitted that they have been trying to get together for some time.
She continued, “We’re both busy but we planted the seed two years ago. How disappointed would you be if that song came out and it’s no good? Sometimes you have to wait for greatness.”
Do you think a Rihanna and Katy Perry duet will be as great as Katy is hoping?
It seems that Rihanna’s decision to let her ex boyfriend Chris Brown back in to her life has cost her some very important friends. It has been reported that Beyoncé and Jay-Z have decided not to let Rihanna near their baby daughter Blue Ivy, to prevent any bad influence.
Jay-Z stood by Rihanna and was a true friend to her after she was beaten by Chris Brown three years ago and he does not seem very happy with her. Rihanna recently recorded some new songs with Chris Brown, much to the disappointment of Jay-Z.
Now it appears that Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé have decided to cut Rihanna from their lives all together. A source has claimed that Beyoncé and Jay-Z have told Rihanna to stay away from Chris Brown or stay away from them.
The source explained, “He wants Blue to have positive role models, not someone who’d take back a man who hit her.” It is unlikely that Rihanna will turn her back on Chris Brown, given the amount of bad press she has been through with him recently, so it seems that she will instead have to turn her back on those who stood by her.
DO you think Rihanna should cut Chris Brown out of her life?
It has been reported that singer Beyoncé and her actress friend Gwyneth Paltrow are looking to go on a holiday together, where they will be partaking in yoga classes. It is believed that Beyoncé and Gwyneth have booked a five star villa in Tuscany, Italy, where they will be enjoying their break and the yoga.
An insider explained, ”They’re planning daily yoga sessions at the private five-star villa, which has its own pool. Beyoncé has also been taking her daughter Blue Ivy to baby yoga classes after Gwyneth recommended it, so they will spend some of the holiday doing that. And the pair will get stuck into a menu of Gwyneth’s favourite organic grub while they are away.”
It was recently reported that Ryan Murphy is looking to create a musical comedy movie titled One Hit Wonders, which he is hoping will star Beyoncé and Gwyneth Paltrow, as well as Cameron Diaz. However no deal has officially been done yet and a script is yet to be written, although it is believed that Ryan will be working on the script with his fellow Glee writers Ian Brennan and Brad Falchuk.
It has been reported that singer and new mother Beyoncé is set to begin work on her new album in the next few weeks. It will be Beyoncé’s fifth studio album and it is believed that the tracks on the album will feature quite a big influence of the birth of her daughter Blue Ivy Carter. Singer and songwriter Ryan Tedder revealed that he would be involved in the album in some way.
Tedder explained that he has had discussions with Beyoncé about her fifth album and also stated that she is one of the best in the business at what she does. He explained, “You feed her the best that you have. She’s just a phenomenal filter… she can identify what the next thing is. Beyoncé has two projects happening this year. You just let her go.”
