Kanye West has been doing more press than ever in support of his Yeezus tour, and when he and fiancee Kim Kardashian stopped by New York radio station Hot 97 on Monday (Nov. 25), the couple didn't hold back.
The interview touched on everything from the couple's relationship, to West's frustration with the fashion industry, to his very surprising explanation for why he decided not to be filmed for the Kardashians' reality show.
"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 like to get a different [director of photography] or whatever," he explained. "And when we got engaged, I made sure the show was there [filming] because I felt like that was something that would make her happy. 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."
With those comments in mind, it looks like those rumors about the couple's impending nuptials possibly being televised aren't as far-fetched as initially thought -- just as long as West retains creative control over how it's filmed.
The 36-year-old rapper, who is clearly head-over-heels in love with Kardashian, went on to talk about another admission he made during his show at Madison Square Garden on Sunday (Nov. 24), when he revealed that his 2010 song "Lost In The World," started out as a poem that he emailed to the reality star. It proves the couple has had a very long courtship, since they didn't officially start dating until April 2012.
Yes, West said he's in it for the long haul, and says, "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 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 told Hot 97's radio host Angie Martinez.
While West is smitten by the lady he sees as "the most beautiful woman of all time," or "arguably human existence," it's apparent that the relationship has changed Kardashian as well. When Martinez noted that it seems like Kardashian has "muted a little bit" since getting together with West, the rapper was quick to bring up the time Kardashian blasted Katie Couric on Instagram for being a "fake media friend."
"Katie Couric sent us a baby gift for our daughter. It was really sweet and I loved it. And then she went and did an interview and said, 'Oh, I don't know why the Kardashians are famous.' Like dissing us," Kim explained, adding that she found Couric's note with the baby gift and took a photo of it, before asking West if he thought she should put it on Instagram and "blast her for fake being nice."
Not surprisingly, West was all for it, he "just wanted to make the card symmetrical in the Instagram picture. I hate asymmetry, I want it ... but it was her idea," he chimed in.
