4 Reasons Why Kim Kardashian & Amber Rose Are Really Meant To Be Best Friends

For years now, there has been a lot of whispers about Kim Kardashian and Amber Rose not liking each other. The reasons never seemed very clear until Amber turned to the tabloids to reveal that Kim K. was the actual reason for her and Kanye’s relationship ending. The buzzed-cut bombshell even called Kim a “homewrecker.” Kim has yet to respond to Amber’s allegations, but what’s the point? These two women should just bury the hatchet and become pals because they have so much more in common with each other than not. Here are four reasons why Kim and Amber are really meant to be best friends.

They Have The Same Taste In Men
According to Amber, the rumors of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West hooking up with each other are true. The ex-Ford Model revealed that Kim and Ye were cheating on her and NFL baller Reggie Bush with each other. To little surprise, Amber even goes on to admit that she even dated Reggie for a while after her and Kanye split to get back at Kim for breaking up her relationship. Who really does that? It’s safe to say that these two have the same preferences when it comes to men: dark and handsome. Could you imagine their phone conversations if they actually did become besties?

Their Music Should Fall On Deaf Ears
By the sound of it, these ladies have the same ear for music. In 2010, Kim released a single called “Jam (Turn It Up).” It was declared to be one of the worst songs ever made by a reality star. There was supposed to be a video premiere, but the feedback from the song was so terrible that the video was shelved. Yesterday, the Internet was busy with the release of Amber’s new single, “Fame” which features her boyfriend, Wiz Khalifa. Let’s just say that Kim, Amber and Paris Hilton’s singles will be sitting on the same shelf.

They Both Have A Passion For Acting *Kanye Shrug*
Disaster Movie is where Kim made her acting debut. It held a good place in the box office bomb list. Kim’s part wasn’t a huge role nor was it one to be nominated for an Oscar. Amber seems to be following in the same career path. She will make her first acting appearance starring in Gang of Roses 2. If Kim and Amber were friends, Kim could refer Amber to her acting coach. They could be helping each other out in their careers.

Nobody Really Knows What They’re Famous For
Barbara Walters said it best during her Most Fascinating People 2011 special while interviewing Kim: “You don’t really act. You don’t sing. You don’t dance. You don’t have any… forgive me… ANY TALENT.” Isn’t that the truth for both Kim and Amber, though? They are both considered celebrities for absolutely no reason, and they get paid very well for it. If they became buddies, they could probably take over the world.

Red Bull Music's 'Inspire The Night' Series Introduces Chinese Female DJ Collective

Not only is female empowerment being highlighted across industries in the United States. Through their docu-series Inspire The Night, Red Bull Music is highlighting the NÜSHÙ Workshop, a female music collective hailing from Shanghai. The collective was founded by Lhaga Koondhor, Daliah Spiegel, and Amber Axilla.

In episode three of the series, Shanghai-based NÜSHÙ artist Lin Jirui is highlighted. Jirui, a DJ who mixes techno, gabber and grime in her sets, discusses the importance of music in her life, especially growing up in a strict household where she was often told by her mother "don't be too different."

NÜSHÙ was named for the centuries-old Chinese script used exclusively by women for communicative purposes, and focuses on inclusion through connection, education and championing "femme, femme-identifying, queer, LGBTQ+, and non-binary individuals." The collective provides its members with the tools needed to succeed in their careers and in life.

“[NÜSHÙ Workshop] is not about becoming the next great DJ, it’s a safe place to discover something. There is so much love and passion…,” says co-founder Koondhor in the episode. “It’s a space where friendship is growing.”
