Beyonce & Kim Kardashian are really fast becoming best mates. The two celebrities seemed to have a whole lot to chat about.

Mariah Carey delivered an emotional tribute speech to the late Whitney Houston. She said “The first time I heard Whitney‘s voice, I was mesmerized like the rest of the world. Just an unknown, budding singer myself, I was captivated by the power in her range, the richness of her tone and her unique ability to wrap a lyric in emotion. We’ll always have that voice we all fell in love with. She inspired us all.”
