Kimye Covers Harper’s Bazaar: Adorable, or More Of The Same?

kimye1

Harper’s Bazaar devoted their September issue to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, and appropriately, many of their pics included cell phones. Kim and Kanye have an obsessive relationship to technology and social media, one that I think reflects our own which is why it’s so compelling.  I love a good Yeezy rant, but I think having Kim there kind of grounds it. You can see the full editorial and interview here, but here are some highlights for you:

Kim and Kanye on each other’s favorite body parts:
KW: Is the face a body part? My favorite body part of Kim’s: heart.
KKW: Awww, now I have to say the same. But of my own, I like my upper stomach. I just seem to always have abs.When I’m not really pregnant, I have a great two-pack. And of Kanye’s? I have to say his heart. And I’ve always loved his legs.

Favorite Taylor Swift song?

KW: For me? I don’t have one.
KKW: I was such a fan of hers.

Historical figure you identify with?
KKW: This one is hard.
KW: Us? Muhammad Ali, Marilyn Monroe—all day. Next question.

Favorite selfie pose?
KKW: I love a selfie in the mirror.
KW: I love her nude selfies. Like, I love the ones from the side, the back ones, and the front. I just love seeing her naked; I love nudity. And I love beautiful shapes. I feel like it’s almost a Renaissance thing, a painting, a modern version of a painting. I think it’s important for Kim to have her figure. To not show it would be like Adele not singing.

Who’s more vain?
KKW: I mean, me.
KW: Yeah, I think she has vanity. And with me, I don’t give a f–k, bro; it is what it is. I’m the best—now what? I don’t know if that’s a vain statement. I don’t particularly like photos of myself, though.

What makes you both laugh?
KKW: Kanye just says the funniest analogies that are so random. I should start keeping a book—in 20 years, I’ll have a big book of analogies.They always make me laugh.
KW: Kim’s just a funny person in general.
KKW: But I don’t get credit for being funny; it’s, like, not a thing.
KW: I think my sense of humor is really dark and super twisted and stuff like that. It’s like, “Is this a funny joke for real? Or am I just rich?” See? That was funny.

How would you like to be remembered?
KKW: I’d like to be remembered as someone who was smart in business, works hard, and can be sexy and a mom. A powerful but still sexy, nonconforming woman. And I would hope that Kanye would be remembered for being smart and sticking to what he believes.
KW: Determined. I would say my determination is way higher than my smartness.
KKW: A lot of people have strong beliefs, but they don’t have the confidence to really stick to them. I really respect Kanye for that.

Kanye isn’t an overthinker: “The one thing I don’t have an insecurity about is public perception. I’m not going to conform to it, you know? Here’s something that’s contrary to popular belief: I actually don’t like thinking. I think people think I like to think a lot. And I don’t. I do not like to think at all…. I think about things to put them in a place where I don’t have to think about them anymore. Say if I had a child with a really bad mom, I would have to think more than if I had a child with a good mom. I’m just doing my homework early. I told my trainer today, I’m a mix of a 14-year-old high schooler and a 60-year-old guy. It can never fall into the 30s or the 40s. It has to be 100 percent 60 or 100 percent 14, no in between.”

I do love how obsessed these two are with each other. And Kim seems VERY into being perceived as “sexy,” among other things. Interesting how you don’t have men saying they want to be remembered as being “sexy.” Ugh. For all she’s achieved, I hate that Kim is still SO socialized to be an object of desire. BAH.

Kanye West And Calvin Harris Are Best Friends Now

Screen Shot 2016-07-25 at 10.23.08 AM

Lol, of course they are.
A source close to newly single Calvin Harris tells E! News that the record producer “wants to make some music with Kanye down the road.” And while nothing is in the works quite yet, Calvin thinks Kanye West is “brilliant with music.”

I guess Calvin wants a couple songs written about him!

The feeling seems mutual, too. A source close to the Kardashians tells us that the couple “always thought” that Calvin was really talented.

Just this past weekend, Kim and Calvin were hanging together and chatting at Jennifer Lopez‘s 47th birthday party in Las Vegas.

“When Kim walked in, Calvin saw her and stood up. He was clearly excited to see her and said ‘hi’ to Kim backstage,” a source told E! News, adding that the two “spoke for about 15 minutes.”Oh man, Taylor would be LIVID. I hope it happens!

Kanye West’s Camp Is Going AFTER Taylor Swift HARDCORE

64th Annual BMI Pop Awards

Taylor Swift still tries to claim her innocence, meanwhile Kanye West‘s camp is NOT HAVING IT.

Following Kim Kardashian’s Snapchat reveal of Taylor’s conversation with Kanye West, Taylor’s team tried VERY HARD to change the conversation and to to sic their legal dogs on Kimye, but it doesn’t solve anything and likely won’t be valid. Taylor playing the victim just doesn’t have the same gravitas anymore, does it?

For the past seven years, Taylor Swift and Kanye West have had a roller coaster of a relationship. While the pair appeared to bury the hatchet last year when Swift presented West with a prestigious award at the MTV Video Music Awards, a source close to Swift tells PEOPLE exclusively West has continuously taken shots at the singer throughout her career.

“Since 2009, when Kanye West stormed the stage and ripped the microphone out of Taylor’s hand, he has been trying to rewrite history; one that includes President Obama calling him a jackass because of his actions,” says the Swift source. “For seven years, Kanye has continued to attack Taylor, attempting to incite hatred for her at his live shows and on social media, even going so far as portraying her naked in his most recent music video. His obsession with and harassment of Taylor over the last seven years is unhealthy and if he were not a celebrity, he would be considered a stalker.”

After West released his song “Famous” – which includes controversial lyrics about Swift – in February, the pair’s feud was reignited. Swift denied the rapper’s claims that she had approved of the lyrics and suggested the line, “I made that bitch famous.”

“Once again, Taylor Swift is playing the victim. Shocking!” a source close to West tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Funny, she didn’t think he was harassing her when she thanked him for being so thoughtful and considerate when he called to get her permission for ‘Famous,’ or for the kind gesture of sending her flowers after she presented him with the MTV Video Vanguard Award. As the recordings reveal, she is a liar and nothing she says will change the truth.”

Kanye is still a dick, for SURE. And he paid for it. But also, that’s just WHO HE IS. Taylor, on the other hand, has spent years meticulously constructing her persona as innocent, sweet, honest and supportive. She made a choice to completely misrepresent Kanye West, and she knows who HE is, and that he probably wouldn’t stand for this particular brand of BS.

Kimye Won’t Be Persecuted For Recorded “Famous” Call

Screen Shot 2016-07-18 at 2.59.33 PM

I think Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have won the war…

Generally, it feels like things are changing for Taylor…she’s in the process of being exposed as being a kind of hypocrite. Sure, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West didn’t go about bringing down Taylor in the most friendly or legit way possible, but the point is the convo that they had on the phone and Tay’s reaction show what kind of a person she is- namely, not ALWAYS the victim.

As we reported, Taylor’s lawyer was coming after Kimye for taping their “Famous” conversation, but the twoo will not face criminal prosecution for the secret recording, because she had no legal expectation of privacy. The problem is, in California, if someone records a “confidential communication” and the other party to the conversation doesn’t know it’s being taped, it’s a crime. But “confidential communication” does not include conversations that “may be overheard.” Taylor knew she was overheard because she was on speaker phone, and during the call producer Rick Rubin speaks up several times. Members of the crew filming Kanye on the call also speak in the room.

As a result, Kanye didn’t violate any law by recording it. Sorry, Taylor.
