Hollywood has seen its fair share of odd friendships, and 2016 has been no exception From cross-genre cohorts to the most unlikely of buddies, check out our list of the oddest celebrity friendships of 2016!
Recall some of the most mismatched of Hollywood friends… Justin Bieber and Kourtney Kardashian, Hellen Mirren and Russell Brand, Eminem and Elton John, and these are just from previous years! The list of odd celebrity friendships of 2016 is long and growing, with the most recent budding friendship being Taylor Swift and Drake… like, where did that even come from?!
Plus, who can forget Selena Gomez buddying up (or should we say cozying up?) with Orlando Bloom in May during a sporadic trip to Las Vegas? The two had a bit of history, as Orlando is a notoriously enemy of Selena’s ex, Justin Bieber. What’s really the icing on the cake of this odd pairing is that Selena is best friends with Taylor Swift, who just happens to be Orlando’s girlfriend, Katy Perry’s, arch-nemesis. This friendship was doomed from the start.
Another token odd friendship of 2016 is Lindsay Lohan and Kourtney Kardashian. The party girls partnered up in June for a night out in London. The two took to Snapchat to share their love for each other, with Lindsay writing, “I’ve found my long-lost twin.” The duo even swapped closets — as besties do — with LiLo sporting the same dress Kourtney arrived in that day. Interesting.
Now, the ultimate #friendshipgoals of 2016 — on that comes completely out of left field — Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart. This year, the two teamed up to bring you “Martha & Snoop’s Pot Luck Dinner Party” and gave everyone a look into their strong bond. The VH1 show is the unlikely pair’s first co-starring project and has already been renewed for a second season! “My homegirl, Martha and I have a special bond that goes back. We’re gonna be cooking, drinking and having a good time with our exclusive friends. Can’t wait for you to see how we roll together!” Snoop said to VH1.com. These two are the gift that keeps on giving!
