Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton. Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna. Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow. Harry Styles and Nick Grimshaw. Rita Ora and Cara Delevingne. High on fame and each other, riding a sexified tide of Twitter followers, brand endorsements and paparazzi camera flashes, these sleb power duos are all current or former besties, BFFs, friendz 4eva, best buds, bestest fwends.
The notion of having a “best friend” is arguably a rather adolescent and affected one born of playground one-upmanship, but sometimes the stars and people’s shared career aspirations or drug habits simply align. Plus, it’s handy to know in advance who you’re going to call at 4:00am during one of those long, dark nights of the soul (generally involving ketamine and Jagerbombs) when you need someone to convince you that the prolonged existential crisis you call life is worth sticking with. #Bestie
