Are Kanye and Kim K. a modern-day Romeo & Juliet?
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally open up about their relationship and why West hopes to never appear on Keeping Up With the Kardashians (but why it may be happening very soon).
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are happy to flaunt… err, share their love everywhere they go. But there is one place West has drawn a line (in the sand). The couple joined Hot 97 on Monday to talk about their relationship and West explained why he has never appeared on his fiancée's show Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
"I don't really do her show just because I don't particularly like the way the producers shoot some of the shots. I'm very meticulous to that, right? I'd like to get a different [director of photography] or whatever," he explained, via Huffington Post.
But fans may finally get a chance to see Yeezus himself, because he finally allowed a part of their life to be filmed for the show — even though it was a very public moment they shared with tens of thousands of fans.
"When we got engaged, I made sure the show was there [filming] because I felt like that was something that would make her happy," he said. "Regardless of how it was shot, I felt like this is a moment she would like to have and would like to share, and just have that documented. And we could decide later or not to air it."
The engagement was a long time in coming for the couple, who were friends for years before they ever started dating. West revealed in the interview that his 2010 song "Lost In the World" came from a poem he had sent to Kardashian. He added that "Our love story's a love story for the ages," and compared themselves to another famous couple (his comparison may have a few flaws).
"I felt like when we first got together, it was like a Romeo and Juliet kinda thing where 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," he said.
The couple recently showed their love for each other when they bared it all for West's latest video "Bound 2" (which was later spoofed by James Franco and Seth Rogen). No matter what anyone thinks of either West or Kardashian, you can see their love. And, who knows, maybe another baby is in the stars for the couple?
