Well, it appears their new found friendship is all thanks to Jay Z. AH-Mazing!
In her recent interview with Vanity Fair, she shared:

Not only did the stars of Empire and How To Get Away With Murder score Emmy nominations for their perf performances, they also made history!
This is the first time two African American women have been simultaneously nominated for lead actress in a drama series!
And if that comes as a shock, sit the eff down! Because if either of the talented ladies wins, it will be the first time EVER a black actress has won in the category!

The crowd at Comic-Con went nuts for this first footage of the Suicide Squad movie!
But much like the film's villainous leads, fans went rogue and leaked the teaser online far too fast for Warner Bros to contain.
So the studio gave in and released the grim glimpse in all its HD glory!
Watch out, Avengers!
Marvel may have had an incredible weekend with its Avengers: Age of Ultron premiere… but DC Comics isn't about to be outdone.
That's because we finally got to see the cast of Suicide Squad in costume!
Writer and Director David Ayer released the image of the whole crew on Twitter on Sunday, and we have to say, Margot's Harley Quinn is by far the stand out — she's conveying so much character in one still image!
Suicide Squad also stars Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman, and Jai Courtney and is scheduled to hit theaters in 2016!
What do U think about DC's answer to Avengers??

We've heard a lot of rumors about this Suicide Squad movie — and surprisingly, most of them have turned out to be true!
For instance, we now have total confirmation that this is the second Batman movie in DC's new cinematic universe!
Batman v Superman star Ben Affleck was snapped on the Toronto set Monday night. Obvi he's wearing his Bruce Wayne outfit and not the other thing, but there's no mistaking that chin!
And he wasn't the only one!
Ch-ch-check out all the pics of the heroes and villains (above)!

This gives Ellen's Oscar selfie a run for its money!
Last December, Warner Brothers announced the star-studded cast of the Suicide Squad. And even though DC Comics is a little late to the comic book ensemble movie party, we're still excited for the villainous flick!
Filming is set to begin this month and to get us more excited, the first photo of the cast was tweeted by the film's director David Ayer! The director captioned the snapshot:
"Cast read through today! #SuicideSquad"
Other cast members present were Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Adam Beach and Ike Barinholtz.
Though fans immediately took note that one famous face was missing —
How To Get Away With Murder is such a hot show, and the world cannot wait for it to come back on ABC ASAP!
Luckily for us, we got to EXCLUSIVELY chat with the woman who plays Annalise Keating at the GLAAD Media Awards on Saturday!
Viola Davis opened up about her fictional character on HTGAWM and gave some pretty solid advice for Anna in season two!
The 49-year-old also talked about what she's learned from playing the lawyer-turned-professor on the small screen!
See Viola dish on her character and more (above)!!
And who is her date to the ball? Her handsome hubby Julius Tennon, naturally!
Viola wore a pale pink Zac Posen gown with a necklace of perfectly matching pearls.
We only wish the How To Get Away With Murder star's gown was a little more form-fitting because her body is bangin'!
At least we got another look at those guns!
