From left to right: Talent, Talent, Talent, hmm No talent
By: Taren Vaughan
With the airing of the 2012 BET Awards show last night, the stars came out in masses, including the mother of Baby Blue Carter. Beyonce’ Knowles joined her husband Jay-Z in the front row of the show alongside his protégé Kanye West, all of whom were nominated in several categories. And of course, Kim Kardashian showed up at the event with ‘Ye. Aside from the well-known fact that Kim has not a drop of talent to show for all that money she has raked in over the years, she never turns down a chance to get some extra shine as Kanye’s arm piece. Yet she looked rather awkward trying to accomplish her goal.
As you can see, Jay-Z and Kanye are enjoying each other’s company as always, Beyonce’ is flashing a smile, on chill mode, and Kim is looking out of place and lost.
Why does she look so strange in this picture?
Could it be from Black celebrities’ reaction to her getting star treatment?
Take Comedian Mike Epps in the picture for example.
Clearly, that stank face that he has going on isn’t towards Bey, Jay or Kanye but towards Kim Kardashian. Hell, he is probably trying to figure out how her ass made it to the front row and he didn’t. And I’m almost certain there were many more brothers and sisters in that crowd who mean mugged Kim all night, still mind-boggled as to why she is even famous in the first place.
True, she is sitting beside her “Knight in Shining Armour” Kanye and getting the extra TV exposure that we all know she craves. But something about her demeanor screams that she is uncomfortable being there period. It appeared that Beyonce’ didn’t offer up much love or conversation to Kim throughout the night, some say it was because of the huge backlash that she received for the snap shot floating around the Internet of her and Kim hanging together, tagging them as friends.
Her hubby Jay-Z wasn’t up for it either as he gave out rounds of hugs before he went on stage to accept his Video of the Year award with ‘Ye, leaving Kim with nothing but an arm pat.
If this picture doesn’t further show how much of an oddball Kim Kardashian is amongst this crew, then I don’t know what does.
Sorry Kimmy, but you can’t get in where you fit in when it comes to the Roc. And the Black celebs know it.
