Kim Kardashian Goes After Beyonce, Again?

We were the first blog to tell you the PR industry was buzzing about the Kardashian camp allegedly going after Beyonce back in 2012 when her romance with Kanye West was in its beginning stages.

Earlier planted stories always made Kim the victim, while Beyonce was painted as the big, bad diva who would act coldly towards the reality star when their husbands went on tour.

The Kardashian machine then cooled off on the media tricks, but things apparently picked back up once Beyonce and Jay Z skipped out on Kimye’s big wedding. Not too long after, the very private Carters were plagued with divorce rumors, kind of like the same ones Kim and Kanye are being bombarded with now which has resulted in even more press for Kim and a new spread with Balmain.

When Kardashian affiliate the Daily Mail isn’t busy trying to make Kendall Jenner and Chris Brown happen (the site is inaccurately referring to Chris as Kendall’s boyfriend now), it’s comparing the Carters to the Wests and of course the Carters would come up short in a Kardashian affiliated publication.

Social media has been on fire ever since The Daily Mail’s latest debacle…an article that states Kimye has replaced the Carters as the biggest power couple in the entertainment business.

It’s already obvious who pitched this article (we don’t even have to say it), especially since the writer makes sure not to make any mentions of Beyonce and Jay Z’s real accomplishments (like one of the highest grossing tours in 2014 and combined billion dollar net worth), but focuses more so on ElevatorGate, Instagram editing and likes.

The Daily Mail writes:

For in a year that Bey and Jay have faced rumours of marriage trouble and controversy over everything from their song lyrics to photoshopping Instagram posts, Kim, 34, and 37-year-old Kanye’s joint profile has been going from strength to strength.

Especially since they’ve firmly cemented themselves within the fashion clique as one of the world’s most stylish couples, counting Givenchy head honcho Ricardo Tisci as a close companion.

Indeed, it was Vogue editor Anna Wintour who gave them the first seal of approval, putting a wedding dress-clad Kim and a suited Kanye on the magazine’s front cover in April.

The edition featuring the power couple – nicknamed Kimye – sold an estimated 150,000 more copies than when Beyonce appeared on the cover the previous year.

…By May, when the couple married in a lavish ceremony at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, they were all anyone could talk about.

The wedding photograph, which they posted on Instagram, took four days of editing – an image-managing endeavour that paid off when it became the most ‘liked’ post ever on the social networking site.

Meanwhile Beyonce and Jay Z, who missed Kim and Kanye’s nuptials amid rumours of a falling out between the two women, were facing problems.

 

 

It’s also telling that the publication continues to claim that Kim and Kanye’s Vogue cover outsold Beyonce’s last cover by 150,000 copies even though magazine publishers already debunked that myth months ago and the Daily Mail refused to correct its faulty stats.

FYI, Kimye’s vogue cover was one of the lowest selling issues of Vogue.

    F-ck the Daily FAIL. Kim will always try to compare herself to any successful black woman but she won’t try that sh-t with any white celebrity. Why? Because her white privileged a-s feels even as a trashy, no talent, p-rn star, she’s still better than a black woman. F-ck you Kim.

        Shut your dumb a-s up. It’s always the oppressor who throws out the racist accusations when you remind them of the silver spoon they are born with. I can bet 3 stacks on what race you are. I could never be racist. I’m not in the position of power, you idiot. How do yall not know the definition of racism when yall invented it? Plus I don’t have to like Kim and I will continue to call her white privileged a-s out anytime I feel like it. What are you going to do about it besides cry on here? Now, go choke on her boring a-s sex tape you POS. Not everyone is willing to give Kim a pass for using black people for fame and fortune. But this country was built on the backs of my people so I’m not surprised she’s gone so far by doing so.

    I was waiting for y’all to catch this. Kim and her family don’t even try to hide their thirst and jealousy anymore. All Kim does on IG now is try to match up to Beyonce and Blue. That’s why she’s not ignoring North anymore. Kim is disgusting.

    I wish more sites would call out these frauds. But they won’t because too many of them are on the Kardashian payroll now. I’m fed up with that white whore trying to compare herself to Beyonce. Beyonce actually has a real career and worked her a-s off to get where she is today. Meanwhile Kim f-cked and sucked her way to the cover of Vogue.

  4. Yeah I Said It!

    You can always tell who is getting paid by Kim and her fam. It’s so transparent. And to be real. I think Kanye is in on it too. He’s always tried to compete with Jay and failed every single time. The only person I feel sorry for is North. She deserves better than two jealous losers for parents.

    Beyonce and Jay Z are unbothered. They are in Dubai living it up and being great parents to Blue. They have been in the business for a long time, and they know what Kanye and Kim are doing in the media. But they don’t care because when you have real accomplishments like slaying Forbes, sold out tours, platinum albums, real businesses…you don’t care about who’s paying who to hype them up. Bey and Jay can let their REAL accomplishments speak for them. Kim can’t do that so she pays people to invent her fake accomplishments. She’s so pathetic.

      That is so damn true. People tend to think just because they get a couple of likes on instagram that they are on top of the world. The truth is even people who hate you like your posts. And since when did sucking and f-cking become a career. She is just a famous whore who likes rich brothers who made it.

    Kim has always been obsessed with Beyonce. In her little air head, she thinks she’s better. But I blame self hating black men for that. They made her think she’s greater than she actually is.

    Kanye is probably putting these lies out too. He’s always wanted his own Beyonce. But he’s not quality enough to get a Beyonce, so he had to settle for Kim. Kim will never be respected, I don’t care what fashion label she partners up with or magazine she covers. She’ll always be a joke.

    December 24, 2014 at 2:48 pm

    In a way, what the Daily Mail is actually saying is, hey successful black women, you’ll never be better than a white woman. Even the trashy ones. If Kim was black, she’d be a nobody like Superhead.

    Thank you UB for calling out Daily Mail on being a Kardashian affiliate it’s been obvious they have been trashing Bey & Jay to build up Kim & Kanye. I’m not even going to dignify Beyonce’s accomplishments compared to Kim it’s insult to Bey. This is white privilege for your a-s where a porn star feels like she is on the same level as an icon.

    If this has been going on since 2012, I’m sure that’s why Beyonce and Jay Z didn’t go to the wedding. And I can’t blame them. I love Kim. I really do. But she’s burned a lot of bridges with her PR decisions.

    And Kim’s “accomplishments” are usually lies too. She purchases a lot of IG/Twitter followers and her video game doesn’t even make her as much money as she claimed in that press release. I mean do the math. She still lives with Kris. She’s not that wealthy.

    I don’t even like Beyonce and Jay Z but Kim and Kanye need to sit their dumb a-ses down somewhere. They are a big joke. Kim has been naked all year. She still lives at home with her mom, and she does nothing but put out fake stories and call the paps all day. That’s not a career. At least Bey and Jay actually work for their money. And while Kim and Kanye were begging for fashion connections and magazine covers, Bey and Jay were meeting royalty and breaking real records with their tours and businesses. Can’t stand them but they really are black excellence.

    • nah

      their getting paid but they aint doin nothin 4 the ppl they aint no excellence. they’re hustlers. big difference.

        December 24, 2014 at 7:48 pm

        I can see you haven’t done any research on Beyonce and Jay Z’s charitable activities. That’s usually how it is though. The biggest critics who claim Jay and Bey do nothing for black people don’t do any research or care to look for any facts because that would require work. Beyonce started a cosmetology school in NY for former addicts. The program is 7 months long and helps them rebuild their lives while remaining clean. Most of those helped are black women. This year alone she has donated $7 million to start a housing complex for the homeless in Houston, again, most of the people who will benefit from that are black. Beyonce also purchased school supplies for many young girls who couldn’t afford it. And she’s given away money for scholarships while she was touring. And this is just a few things Beyonce has done in the last year. Let’s not forget that many of the people employed by Beyonce are women and of color. Then there’s the #BeyGood movement, where Beyonce and her fans dedicate ourselves to actively pursuing worthy causes and helping others in need.

        Jay Z created a trust fund for Sean Bell’s kids. He also sends young people from the hood to college every year through his foundation. Without his help, they wouldn’t be able to get an education. He also attended a Trayvon Martin rally and provided support to Trayvon’s parents with Beyonce. Again, this is just a small bit of things he has done in addition to employing young black men via his Rock Nation ventures.

        Now, you were saying?

    I’m not trying to be rude, but what exactly does Kim do? I mean besides being on a reality show? At least with Nene we actually see that she works. Kim doesn’t appear to do much more than magazine shoots and pose for paps. And If I’m not mistaken, you don’t get paid for either.

    I was done with Kim and Kanye when they tried to throw Michelle Obama into their mess. When they aren’t comparing Kim to Michelle, they are comparing her to Beyonce. They need people to think Kim is better than two of the most celebrated black women of today. That’s why I do think Kim is racist and Kanye hates himself. I mean when is the last time Kanye even dated someone who wasn’t white/biracial? If you ask me, he’s just as offensive as Iggy. We need to be dragging him too. LOL.

      December 24, 2014 at 3:25 pm

      Oh Kanye was dragged already trust. That’s why his album didn’t go platinum. He angered a lot of black people because he kept talking slick about the president and he went on a rant saying Michelle shouldn’t get a Vogue cover if Kim can’t. That’s why he tried to clean it up by saying he wasn’t comparing Kim to Michelle and he tweeted about how he talked to Obama like two weeks ago. He’s slowly trying to distance himself from those previous comments because he has a new album coming out and he’s lost black support.

    • yeah

    It really grind my gears when they are called the worlds stylish couple. I have seen her in some nice garments, but to me the majority of the time she looks over exposed and whorish. Idk if it’s because I’m a Brooklyn chick but Kayne could not touch Jay Z style or swag not never in a million years. But, that’s just me though.

    Both Kanye and Kim have stalker tendencies. There was nothing normal about how he showed out for Beyonce when Taylor Swift won that award. He took that ish way too personally, as if Beyonce was his woman. And he’s been trying to be like Bey and Jay for a long time. He wants it, the problem is he’s not smart enough to pick the right woman and I do think he’s gay as well. But Kim doesn’t mind being a beard as long as she can stay relevant and get on the cover of Vogue. She’s like her mom. No conscience or heart at all. Money and fame over everything.

    I’ve been just reading alot of the blogs on here and it makes sense what you all are saying. White media controls everything, movies, Oscars, networks, grammys, almost everything that is exposed to mainstream and when they see blacks are trying to Excel in a certain área such as Bill Cosby who was trying to create his own media company, They sought to destroy his reputation. Now we are witnessing a ex porno whore excel and being compared to our most greatest black figures. The problem has been identified, now the question is what the hell do all you plan on doing about it? All of blacks greatest accomplishments which got us where we are today came from coming together with a purpose. Too many of you scared to die for a purpose. What if Martín Luther King, and Rosa Parks were scared? We still be oppressed in the worse way! Think about how we can pave the way for our future generations if we unite as a people. Whites who traveled from England were wild barbaric peseant slaves who fought for their freedom from the Royal Monarchy. These whites are from the bloodline of uncivilized commoners, they were considered more civilized than the Africans they forced into slavery. Although they were lowly peseants they prove to be smart enough to establish their own heiarchy and any threat to it their barbaric ways proves itself which makes white people dangerous.

      I’m can agree with most of what you said but I’d like to point out a few flaws. Not all white who came here were “barbaric”. The Puritans who settled Mass came here to flee religious persecution. Many were banished to the Americas as well as indentured servants or exiled. The people that were exiled may have been a commoner, an aristrocrat, or a lord. Let’s not the forget conquistadors of Spain and Portugal. I wouldn’t classify a race of people as dangerous. There are good and bad in everyone. The media to me is dangerous. Another blog that I frequent B O S S I P… they are black owned but they love Kim. It sickens me, b/c they praise this woman. She’s the problem not white people in general. She’s getting rewarded and getting attention by our people. The white people that I know can’t stand her. They think she’s trash.

        Ok, I agree, I may have been a slight over dramatic when I said all whites. My great grandmother was Portuguese and were good people. The group of whites that I was mainly referring to are the ignorant ones that are racist. The ones that fought for freedom from the Royal Monarchy of England. They were peasants who carried those savage traits to the “new world.” They were the ones who were treated like trash by the Royal Families and enslaved blacks. I have alot of white freinds, believe it or not, who are actually really nice and don’t harbor those ignorant beliefs. Those hill Billy whites are the ones who I’m mainly referring to, they are barbaric and Will kill, hang, and oppress anybody especially blacks if they feel like it.

          Just a tad bit lol. It’s ok, I get that you’re passionate. Kim stirs that up in anybody. The PAPER Magazine cover infuriated me, she gets praised but woman like Tahiry who pose like that are labeled [email protected] You are also right that it was a rag tag crew of men who fought in the American Revolution. The Patriot depicts those men very well, while it is somewhat historically inaccurate.

Black bloggers shouldn’t be sitting back and allowing this racist p-rn star to try to compare herself to our black first lady and Beyonce. Why aren’t more black bloggers calling Kim and her family out? That’s the real question.

    Why isn’t this obvious to more people? And a few journalists have already called Kim and her fam out for how they pay off the media to do their dirty work. I believe Access Hollywood said they were banned from some Kardashian event because they refused to strike a deal with the Klan and run their planted stories. And I know someone from the NY Post called out Kris for trying to buy a good review for her flop talk show. This is what they do. They pay people to keep them in the media and you better believe US Weekly, The Daily Mail and TMZ are their biggest partners. You can tell when TMZ hasn’t received the check from Kris for the month yet because that’s when TMZ will drag them.

    I used to be a very big fan of Kim. I thought she was so pretty and sweet. But now I see she’s not a nice person and she will do anything to stay famous. It takes a very dirty person to use people as much as she does. She may have lots of money and fame right now, but she has to die and answer to God for all the things she’s done to people in this lifetime.

    Kim has been doing this kind of stuff for a long time. Paying off the media is why she is here today. But in the end, her resume will always lack substance in comparison to Beyonce’s because Kim has never worked a day in her life for anything she has. When IG likes are your biggest accomplishment, you really need to reevaluate your life.
