Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are one of the most notable couples in the industry today. How do you know this is true? Simple, they have a cool couple name; Kimye. What more evidence do you need? All jokes a side I wasn’t the biggest fan of the couple when they became and item, it wasn’t that I didn’t like them as opposed to not really caring. Recently my views have changed and I’ll now explain why.
Recently I was at a friends house and she refused to change channel from the dreaded Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Although I was mostly on my phone (in attempts to save my sanity), there were a few moments from the show that caught my attention. On this episode Kim was asked who her favorite singer was. She replied her two favorite singers were Andrea Bocelli and Kanye West. Now you would think it would seem scripted that she would throw Kanye’s name in the mix because it sounds good or because it she was being recorded. But in all honestly when I thought about it I realize that Kim is always raving about Kanye. This is the first reason that transitioned me to being a fan of the couple. Nowadays in relationships people seem miserable, it almost seems as if they were arranged to be together with no say in the matter. Kim going so hard for Kanye definitely is on the other side of the spectrum. She truly seems to be a fan of him as he is of her, which is actually kind of refreshing.
Secondly I love how the two of them disregard each other’s past. Kim was mad famous from a sex tape with Ray J, then was married twice. For most males this would of definitively through her on the “no wife” list. Not only was Kanye able to look past all of that, he actually embraces. With lines like ” Break records at Louis, ate breakfast at Gucci//My girl a superstar all of a home movie”, You can’t try to use this against him because he uses it as a catalyst. Being able to ignore societal norms and pursue what makes you happy is very rare but super dope. Kanye doesn’t seem like he’s the easiest person to deal with himself, but through his rants and celebrity quarrels she never wavers.
Though they may not be the most conventional, Kim and Kanye have certain things in their relationship that are definitely admirable to say the least. Now I’m not gonna get ahead of myself and call them relationship goals, however I think I can now say that I am a fan of the two…. Now let’s talk about Drake and Rihanna.
