Hmm, so maybe Kim Kardashian and Beyonce aren't as good friends as we first assumed. Three months ago, the gossip columns had us believe Kim Kardashian, Beyonce and their respective men Kanye West and Jay Z were living one huge double date, regularly hanging out at any given opportunity.
However, according to the New York Daily News, Kim's "repeated attempts" to befriend Beyonce are being spurned by the global superstar. The 16-time Grammy winner gave Kim a reality check at the Made in America Festival in Philadelphia on Saturday night (August 1, 2012). A source backstage said, "Kim and Beyonce barely spoke to each other.They were on opposite sides of the stage. Beyonce didn't even acknowledge [Kardashian] was there until the concert was almost over". Of course, the situation was made extra awkward given Kanye and Jay Z are best pals and were together for the most part of the festival. The women eventually "made small talk in the dressing room", with the source adding, "You could tell Kim was uncomfortable. She clung onto Kanye the entire time and didn't say much".
It turned out to be a momentous occasion for Jay Z and Kanye, who technically shared stage time with the President of the United States Barack Obama. The President filmed a video message for the audience at the festival, proclaiming his love for the duo's music and urging fans to get out and vote at the forthcoming election.
