On Valentine’s Day, Kanye West rejoined Instagram, first to wish Kim Kardashian a “Happy Valentine’s Day Babe” and then to celebrate a number of iconic couples in the world of entertainment and politics.
Among the iconic couples that got celebrated on the rejuvenated Kanye West Instagram page are Barack and Michelle Obama, Brad Pitt and Jenifer Aniston as well as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Withney Houston and Bobby Brown got a mention, so did Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, Lisa Marie Presley & Michael Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Sean Combs (P Diddy), Aaliyah and Tupac, as well as Madonna and Sean Penn, among others.
But the most important thing about this Kanye West celebration of iconic couples is the one set of couples that didn’t get featured on his wall.
We went through all the 55 posts, and what caught our attention is that iconic couple that wasn’t celebrated.
JAY-Z and Beyonce were snubbed by Kanye West.
If this was the awards for a category called Kanye West’s Most Iconic Couples Ever, then JAY-Z and Beyonce got snubbed big time.
It didn’t come as an entire surprise though.
Kanye West and JAY-Z’s relationship has been broken lately, especially after Kanye’s 30-minute rant in Sacramento (United States) in 2016.
While on stage, Kanye lashed out on Beyonce and asked JAY-Z to call him.
Kanye West accused Beyonce of refusing to perform at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards unless her “Formation” video beat him and Drake to win Video of the Year, which it did.
That public rant effectively pulled the plug on the JAY-Z and Kanye West Friendship.

Meanwhile, JAY-Z also addressed their broken friendship in his 4:44 album. Later in an interview, he claimed he had called Kanye to talk to him.
“I love Kanye. I do. It’s a complicated relationship with us,” JAY-Z had said.
But it seems Kanye is not over it.
Because there is no way one can make a list of iconic couples that JAY-Z and Beyonce wouldn’t make the cut.
Especially when divorced couples such as Bruce Willis and Demi Moore are on the list.
