9 Shocking Celebrity Friendships: You Won't Believe Britney's Bestie!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

When you're a kid, a shared love of Ninja Turtles is all it takes to forge a lifelong friendship.

Sometimes it seems like it's the same way with celebrities. Stars who have nothing in common other than wealth and fame often form bonds that baffle us plebeians.

Sure, money and power tend to break down a lot of social barriers (Mick Jagger has been knighted by the Queen of England. 'Nuff said.), but even that explanation can't help us wrap our heads around some of the stranger sets of celeb-besties:

Gwyneth Paltrow and Jay Z
Gwyneth claims she's tight with Jay. Right. We're sure they do the most gangsta yoga together.

Some of these pairings aren't so shocking when you consider their backstories (Jonah Hill has a history of stalking his A-list co-stars, so it's no surprise he latched on to Brad Pitt).

Others, we're not sure we totally believe. (Gwyneth Paltrow and Jay Z? Right, keep trying to sell us on that one, Gwinnie.)

But for the most part - like the celebrity bromances we've shown you before - these friendships are just further proof that sometimes opposites really do attract.

As long as both of the opposites happen to be internationally recognized millionaires, that is. Right, 50 Cent and Meryl Streep?

Check out the gallery above to marvel at some of the unlikely A-listers who hang out and gripe about paparazzi on the weekends.

That has to be one of the most constipated looking negros ive ever seen,a millionaire who made his fortune selling his no-talent-hack-rap to a legion of blacks and self-hating whites cannot even pop a smile?? I guess maybe his crack dealer was late on arrival to sell him his dope on the day of photo--either that or he just found out he had contracted AIDS from Snoop Dawg.
