So Beyonce and Jay Z are reportedly gonna go on tour with each other this summer, and we can’t figure out why everybody is freaking out so hard. Not that Jay&Bey aren’t awesome, but they’ve already recorded so many songs together that we’re honestly surprised they haven’t been on tour together yet.
They’ve collaborated on everything from that Grammys performance earlier this year to a tiny human you might know of as Blue Ivy, so what’s all the hullabaloo about, y’know? Will their concert be amazing? Yes. Am I sincerely hoping that I can scrape together enough money to go to their rumored show in New York City on July 4th? Absolutely. And if you live in one of the cities they’ll be visiting on their twenty-stadium tour, would I recommend buying a ticket? Bigtime.
…but here are ten dream couples that I can’t help feeling I’d rather see instead. Because the world is my oyster and if I put these wishes into the world, they just might come true. Fingers crossed.
1. Harry Styles and Taylor Swift
I don’t care that they’re not together anymore, and maybe never even were…if Taylor Swift and One Direction somehow toured together, I would be there every effing night. Even if it was just Harry doing solo stuff and both of them telling stories about their short-lived relationship, I would be in blogger heaven.
2. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale
I’m sure most of you guys know this, but Gwen’s husband Gavin is a member of the band Bush, who I think would make a really interesting collaboration with No Doubt. Especially considering how adorable their kids turned out.
3. Katy Perry and John Mayer
I’m a dick for saying this, but I’d pay all my money to watch Katy following John around a stage for ninety minutes. GET BACK TOGETHER AND MAKE IT HAPPEN.
4. Rihanna and Drake
This would be a kick-ass concert, and don’t any one of you dare to deny it.
5. Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber
Aren’t you even just a little bit curious? Think of all the lip-syncing! The egg-flinging! If nothing else, it would be a really epic piece of performance art.
6. Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz
Neither of them has put out new material in a while now, so it’s definitely time.
7. Ciara and Justin Timberlake
I’m fully aware that she’s expecting a baby with Future right now, but I saw the video for Love Sex Magic years ago, and I sitll haven’t quite recovered. It’s just that steamy. A full concert might kill me, but I want it.
8. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
Don’t really care about either of their music, I’d just love to watch Mariah boss Nick around during his whole set. Wouldn’t that be totally worth the ticket price?
9. Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt
If this isn’t your dream couple, then what the hell is wrong with you? THEY PLAY THE UKULELE TOGETHER.
10. Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake
I know he’s on this list twice, but just imagine an alternate reality where Justin and Britney are perched on stools, serenading the audience ala June Carter and Johnny Cash. Dare to dream, okay??!?
Still excited about Beyonce and Jay Z? Or haven’t you joined me in this whimsical dream world yet?
