There's a rumor going around that Kris Jenner of the Kardashian family interviewed Beyonce when the singer was just a kid. Looking at the footage, it seems to make sense, but it's difficult to know for sure.
The post was shared by Matthew Knowles, Beyonce's dad, who wrote:
"This week’s #throwbackthursday also comes from back in ’92. Beyonce was about 11 years old and already working hard. Here she is talking about getting over stage fright."
That's certainly Beyonce being interviewed, and it's actually really sweet to hear her as a kid before she became a massive star. It's almost like she hasn't changed at all -- fame hasn't changed her at all.
This woman interviewing Beyonce certainly looks like Kris Jenner and sounds like Kris Jenner. There must be a way to confirm this.
But given this is the internet, someone has already weighed in to say how this could never have happened.
Someone wrote underneath Dad Knowles' post:
“People. There’s no way Kris was moonlighting as a local news anchor in Houston."
It's just the facts.
"Wait is that @krisjenner" wrote serenasindani under the post.
“This is Kris Jenner interviewing Beyoncé as a child. The universe is playing in our faces like who knew either of those people would be where they are now. Crazy," wrote @deemxreckless.
All of this is quite interesting when you think about the circular relationship between the two. Beyonce is of course married to Jay-Z. Jay-Z and Kanye West used to be friends.
Jay-Z used to be friends with West, who used to call Jay-Z Big Brother, so there's some history there.
West spoke recently about his complex friendship with the rapper, who was also his mentor.
“With Jay, I love all of these people, but you got to know there’s a lineage of Jay to Ye to Drake.
It’s, this person is your idol. Then you get to know ’em, then you be friends, then you turn to frenemies, then you turn to enemies, and then you gotta bring back the positive energy. But that is the lineage of rap kings and inspirers.”
Beyonce spoke with Elle magazine about fame and how she manages to stay above the fray.
“The predictable rock star DNA is a myth. I believe you don’t have to accept dysfunction to be successful. This is not to say that I have not struggled. I have the same pain that life brings to everyone else. I try to shift the stigma that says with fame there has to be drama. It is how you relate to your hardships and use that to evolve. And I try to keep real ones around me.”
