Its about her mother. Mama K found someone to play along. But you know who won't? Mrs. Carter. I'm not a big fan of Beyonce - but I like that "just because" Mama K found someone to keep Kim K in the spotlight as Kimye -

Who just happens to be friends with Bey's husband -

Doesn't mean she HAS to play along.

So she doesn't.

She( Beyonce) strikes me as a fairly kind person - and I have direct information that my outside looking in perception is spot on - if she's not taking that marriage as anything other than a publicity stunt - I'm not either.

Look up how Kim really got her start. It wasn't a sex tape - it was being Paris Hilton's stylist.

Sometimes it comes down to the company one keeps. We do it to political figures (influencers) - when you put your talent out there as being a lifestyle to emulate - the company you keep and how they conduct themselves matters.

Next step - there's a reason Nicole Ritchie doesn't play in that circle anymore.

Full disclosure - I grew up with someone who is now an Entertainment Attorney who is hip deep in Beverly Hills and Malibu culture. Not clients - but in the know.

There is a slow burning backlash against Kimye that is being lead by Mrs.Carter - and I don't blame her. She's worked since she was five to accomplish something. Kim married Kanye - that doesn't mean she gets to bask in the Carter's glow.

I'm also friends with a rap/music producer. . . I've heard this from two directions.

Regardless - I'm ashamed that I know ANY of this!
