Watch Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj Have a Sexy Stare Down Contest

The duo practiced their ice grills on each other. 

One of the saddest things about adulthood is that for every year you age it just becomes that much harder to form quality friendships with people. Hell, with the extent to which we’re all buried in our laptops and smartphones, it’s a miracle we make any new friends at all. This is depressing for most people, unless you’re Drake and you’re all “no new friends,” which is cool too. Do whatever feels natural, you know?

One time I saw a picture online of a duo of lady friends that I would consider to be my fantasy duo of lady friends: Amy Poehler and Janeane Garofalo, but as of today, in this present moment, Beyoncé and  Nicki Minaj might just nudge them out of first place. These two make being friends look like so much fun.

Here they are practicing their “ice grills” on each other in preparation for their performance of “Feeling Myself” at the Tidal X 10/20 benefit concert.

Let’s see who cracks first…

And here’s Beyoncé’s  cover of Prince’s “Darling Nikki,” tailored for her friend with new lyrics and a new title, “Darling Nicki (Minaj).” It contains the memorable line, “I met her in the studio lobby but her booty looked bigger in the magazines.” 

The plain truth is that Bey and Nicki are having way more fun, and with cooler people (each other), than we are.
