The only thing left for Kanye West to do – is jump on a couch during an interview with Oprah. The rapper had his very own Tom Cruise moment when he stopped by Hot 97 with Angie Martinez yesterday afternoon. The “Bound 2″ singer compared their love to an epic romance, and said his future wife was “the top 10 of human existence.”
“I loved her from the first day I saw her, which I said on ‘Bound’…I remember seeing pictures of her and Paris Hilton in Australia, and I came to Don C., and I was like, ‘Man, have you ever seen Kim Kardishawn? What’s up with Kim Kardishawn?’” he shared, intentionally mispronouncing Kardashian’s last name.
“So you knew that she was the one?” Martinez asked. “Oh, yeah, 100 percent,” he replied. “[But] I had to work for it.”
West, 36, went on to say that his romance with the reality star, 33, is the stuff of legends and Shakespeare. “Our love story’s a love story for the ages,” he raved. “I felt like when we first got together, it was like a Romeo and Juliet kind of thing, where it’s like, she’s a reality star and I’m a rapper, and people talk about how our brands connect and what doesn’t fit. And I’m just so tired of the conversation of brands.”
“Why don’t we start the conversation with love?” he continued. “Why don’t we start the conversation with God? Why don’t we start this conversation with family? It’s not about branding at a certain point.”
That said, West’s brand is undergoing some major changes. Asked about his famous Nike footwear, Air Yeezys, the aspiring designer revealed that he’d recently set up a new deal — with Adidas.
“I said I need royalties,” he explained. “Nike told me, ‘We can’t give you a royalty because you’re not a professional athlete.’ I told them, ‘I go to the Garden and play one on no one. I’m a performance athlete.’”
“The old me, without a daughter, might have taken the Nike deal, ’cause I just love Nike so much,” he admitted. “But the new me, with a daughter, takes the Adidas deal, because I have royalties and I have to provide for my family.”
He does indeed provide — and not just financially. “His face lights up when he is with our daughter,” Kardashian gushed to Martinez. “He is the most amazing dad ever. It’s really cute to see them together.”
Okay he needs to tone it down a bit. I’ve said from the beginning I think he’s WAY more into her than she is into him. I can’t stand the guy, personally. He might be the biggest narcissist in Hollywood, and to me, that’s a HUGE turnoff. How obnoxious is he!?
Here are new pictures of Romeo and Juliet out and about.
