Why the Beyhive is a bunch of narcissists

Beyonce will have you sign an NDA if you go out partying with her and, according to the Beyhive, that is the price Tiffany Haddish will have to pay for her revealing comments about a day in the life with the Carters. But this isn’t the first time the Beyhive checked another celebrity for underestimating the Queen.

The internet went nuts the day Kim Kardashian flashed a censored nipple on Instagram a couple of weeks ago.

In a matter of minutes there was an onslaught of memes and trending Twitter topics that mocked the sexy shoot. I personally didn’t get what all the uproar was about since her claim to fame is in part due to her assets. Yet, just like clockwork, cries for scandal were shared throughout the web as soon as her bubble butt popped up on feeds. Amid all the buzzing and commotion, the worse kind of trolls crawled out of the sticky depths of the Beyhive. Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge Beyonce fan but I will NEVER associate myself to that notorious narcissistic group of mightier than thou fan club.

Their argument was that Beyonce’s Grammy style slay had prompted Kim to post the “provocative” pictures. Granted the timing could be interpreted as a little bit suspicious but still, THOSE ARE THE KIND OF DOTS THAT ONLY NARCISSISTS COULD CONNECT. They will make everything, even the smallest thing you do, about them: what you wear, how you conduct yourself, what you say, even down to when you post. Forgive me if my naïveté gets the best of me when I say this, but I am convinced that Kim Kardashian couldn’t care less about how Beyonce fans feel.

Psychology Today summarized it best:

“The hallmarks of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) are grandiosity, a lack of empathy for other people, and a need for admiration. People with this condition are frequently described as arrogant, self-centered, manipulative, and demanding. They may also concentrate on grandiose fantasies (e.g. their own success, beauty, brilliance) and may be convinced that they deserve special treatment. These characteristics typically begin in early adulthood and must be consistently evident in multiple contexts, such as at work and in relationships.”

While I scrolled past the painfully obvious screams for attention from the Beyhive, I couldn’t help but remember all the times they made it a point to outshine Rihanna during her many moments of glory or shade Michelle and Kelly at the drop of a dime or make it their business to put Rachel Roy in her place by bombarding her daughter’s Instagram with passive aggressive comments and the notorious bee emoji. EVERYTHING concerns them. It makes you wonder… where did this grandiose idea of self come from…

Oh, maybe Beyoncé, the shade queen herself. I rest my case.
