Kanye West has opened up about his relationship with Kim Kardashian during a radio interview.
Speaking to host Angie Martinez for Hot 97 yesterday, Kanye chatted about his Keeping up with the Kardashians fiancée and their relationship, as well as a supposed snub he received from Louis Vuitton’s vice-president.
He said: “I loved her from the first day I saw her, which I said on Bound [his new single], I don’t remember when that was. I remember seeing pictures of her and Paris Hilton in Australia and I came to Don C. and I was like, ‘Man, have you ever seen Kim Kardashawn?’”
“Our love story’s a love story for the ages. I felt like when we first got together, it was like a Romeo and Juliet kinda thing.”
Really?! Kanye you do take yourself so seriously! You’re a rapper and she’s a reality TV star who made a sex tape!
But apparently it is their star-crossed careers that make their relationship one for the history books as the All Falls Down rapper continued: “It’s like she’s a reality star and I’m a rapper, and people talking about how our brands connect and what doesn’t fit and I’m just so tired of the conversation of brands.
“Why don’t we start the conversation with love? Why don’t we start the conversation with God? Why don’t we start this conversation with family, instead? It’s not about branding at a certain point.”
As if Kanye’s Shakespearian tragedy love life wasn’t enough, the 36-year-old also moaned about other aspects of his life, namely Louis Vuitton’s lack of cooperation when he wanted to meet with the vice-president for absolutely no apparent reason.
He said: “What happened was while I was out in Paris I wanted to meet with the head of Louis Vuitton, he said I don’t understand why we need to meet with you. I said ‘let me explain to you why you need to meet with me.’
“’Everyone in New York City right now don’t buy any Louis Vuitton until after January. Now do you want to meet with me? Now do you want to meet with me?’ Influence. They think I don’t realise my power.”
Sorry, what?! That doesn’t answer the question at all! He just stated that merchandise only sells in January then smugly reiterated the suggestion they meet up, like he’s volunteering as the world’s most annoying sales assistant. We’re confused.
So is he a loved-up Romeo? Is he a misunderstood Hamlet? Or is he just a really strange guy?
