Cannon was discussing the headlines about Bey’s Renaissance film premiere outfit on his Daily Cannon morning show on Tuesday (November 28). When his co-host Courtney Bee said: “I know they tried it, ’cause who the fuck look like Kim Kardashian,” Nick jokingly replied: “Kim Kardashian wanna look like Beyoncé!”
After seeing the picture, he added, “Kim Kardashian wished she looked like that!”
Nick and Kim briefly dated in 2006/2007, but nothing ever really came of it – though it did garner a shot from Kim’s then-husband Kanye West amid an Instagram rant in 2018. He then got with Mariah Carey shortly after and the rest is history.

On Saturday (November 25), Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé had a star-studded premiere at the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre in Beverly Hills, California. It wasn’t long before Vogue’s photographs from the event began going viral, with a lot of online commenters calling Beyoncé out, saying that she was trying to look like a white woman – particularity Kim Kardashian.
Bey’s mother Tina Knowles-Lawson wasn’t having that, though, letting loose with a lengthy Instagram post addressed to the people who attacked her daughter’s appearance.
“Came across this today and decided to post it after seeing all of the stupid ignorant self, hating racist statements about her, lightening her skin, and wearing platinum hair wanting to be white,” she wrote next to a video montage of the disparaging comments.
“She does a film, called the renaissance, where the whole theme is silver with silver hair, a silver carpet, and suggested silver attire and you bozos decide that she’s trying to be a white woman and is bleaching her skin?”
She continued: “How sad is it that some of her own people continue the stupid narrative with hate and jealousy. Duh, she wore silver hair to match her silver dress as a fashion statement clown. . ALIEN Superstar duh!
“What’s really sad is that a white woman had the audacity to reach out to Neal Beyonces hairstylist she was from TMZ to say that the fans are saying that she wants to be white and she wanted to get a statement about it from Neal. Well that made, my blood boil , that this white woman felt so entitled to discuss her blackness.
“Every time she does something that she works her ass off for and is a statement of her work ethic , talent and resilience. Here you sad little haters come out the woodwork. Jealousy and racism , sexism , double standards , you perpetuate those things . Instead of celebrating a sister or just ignoring if you don’t like her, I am sick of you losers.”
Knowles-Lawson concluded: “I know that she is going to be pissed at me for doing this, but I am fed up ! This girl minds her own business. She helps people whenever she can. She lifts up & promotes black women and underdogs at all times.”
