I want to hate Kim and Kanye. I really do. They’re full of themselves and completely over-the-top and self-important. But they’re absolutely freakin’ perfect together, and I can’t hate on their union. Listen, I threw plenty of shade Kim’s way when she was wrapped up in that circus of a marriage to Kris Humphries. But I can honestly say that I think she’s met her match in Kanye. Is it the match I would choose for myself? Probably not. But they are perfect for each other.
Here’s one of the most Kanye-ish statements you’ll ever hear/read. He said it today while speaking on a panel, just after he made the organizers remove all of the labels on the water bottles because of his stance on celebrity endorsements or something, and I quote:
“I have to work with the No. 1, I can’t work with anyone but Jay Z, I can’t be with any girl but Kim because that’s the girl that I look at her pictures the most and get turned on the most. I am not going to represent any company except Louis Vuitton because that’s the best.”
Is he operating on a different wavelength from the rest of us? Absolutely. But really, at our core we all want someone who thinks we’re the number one girl/guy in the world, and that they couldn’t be with anyone else. I know I do. Maybe he could have expressed this thought in a more humble and appreciative way, but the sentiment is spot-on.
Further illustrating their perfection, in a recent interview, Kim explains, “We always say we really like to treat each other like it’s our birthday. I try to treat him like it’s his birthday every single day. We always try to make life as fun and enjoyable as possible.”
Again, I could do without the wall of flowers and the pomp and circumstance surrounding their marriage and the other nonsense, but wow. She’s spot on. You should treat your significant other like it’s their birthday every day and vice versa. You want to be with someone who makes your life so awesome that you want to return the favor. How can you hate on that? Underneath it all, it seems like they have a genuine, loving relationship.
What do you think about Kimmy and Yeezus? Yay or nay?
