Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z famously skipped out on the nuptials between reality star Kim Kardashian and her rapper husband Kanye West and it’s exactly for the reasons you may have thought.
According to reports, Kim’s wedding to Kanye wasn’t exactly classy enough for the high profile couple to attend, so they opted to stay in for some family fun time in the Hamptons instead. It’s being reported that Bey and Jay are not that impressed with Kanye’s choice in women and flat out refused to attend the wedding ceremony that took place in Italy last May.
A source revealed to “Page Six”, “They are guarding like hell their status. Beyonce wasn’t going to allow a Kardashian to socially climb her. And Jay didn’t want Kanye with Kim – he thinks it’s bad for business. I think Jay lost a little respect for Kanye there.”
Recently, Kanye revealed that he used his wedding speech to rant about how celebrities in this day and age have absolutely no rights and even compared them to African Americans from the sixties. He said, “What I talked about in it was the idea of celebrity, and celebrities being treated like blacks were in the sixties, having no rights, and the fact that people can slander your name. I said that in the toast. And I had to say this in a position where I, from the art world, and marrying Kim. And how we’re going to fight to raise the respect level for celebrities so that my daughter can live a more normal life. She didn’t choose to be a celebrity. But she is. So I’m going to fight to make sure she has a better life.”
What Kanye doesn’t seem to realize is that people are putting down the name of his wife because of how she achieved her level of fame. It’s not like she worked her way to the top because of some awesome talent that she has. No, she got famous after hanging around Paris Hilton and releasing a sex tape just like Paris did. She said that it was “leaked” and sold the rights to Vivid Entertainment for millions of dollars. They transformed the notoriety from that into a reality television show and the rest is basically history. If people are putting Kanye’s name down, it’s just because everyone feels he’s a royal douchebag that deserves zero respect.
What he also doesn’t seem to understand is that he and Kim are always really putting themselves out there. If they really REALLY wanted privacy for their daughter, we wouldn’t know where she was all of the time. If they really wanted privacy for themselves, then why do we see them going to photo shoots and the such all of the time? We would swear that they are calling the paparazzi all of the time with regard to how much they are seen — especially Kim. If they want to really disappear so they can have a normal life for their daughter, they should move to Paducah, Kentucky and get a nice ranch where they can raise little North in peace.
