For a guy who’s always been reluctant about appearing on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kanye West sure is chatty about his personal life lately.After Monday’s pre-concert radio interview with 97.1 AMP, the rapper talked with Ryan Seacrest on Tuesday, giving listeners another glimpse into his relationship with Kim Kardashian and their upcoming nuptials – including that Kim will take his last name after they’re married.
When Seacrest asked Kanye about last week’s elaborate proposal, the rapper revealed that he had an uncharacteristic case of the jitters just before popping the question. “I was nervous. I was talking to her cousin. I was like, ‘I don’t know, what do you think she’s going to say?This is someone else’s feelings. You never know what someone else may feel at the time.” Whoa, did arrogant and over-confident Kanye West just admit to some insecurity? I daresay he did. This almost makes him seem a bit more normal…..almost.
The rapper also reflected on the first time he saw Kim Kardashian, telling Seacrest, “I just knew I wanted her to be my girl for a long time. I remember I saw a picture of her and Paris Hilton … and I remember telling my boy … ‘Have you seen that girl Kim Kar-dijon?’” Of course, that was years ago, back when Paris Hilton was relevant, Kim was simply Paris’s BFF and Kanye was just beginning his ascent to self-proclaimed greatness.
Speaking of self-proclaimed greatness, Kanye also revisited the subject of The Hollywood Walk of Fame’s refusal to give his baby mama a star. He’s obviously not over it and told Seacrest, “It’s not the walk of singing … it’s the Walk of Fame.” He also noted the Walk’s elitist use of “classism” when deciding who gets a star and who doesn’t.He must have forgotten that a celebrity has to be nominated to receive a star, and Kim has yet to be recommended.Is anyone else as surprised as I am that Kanye hasn’t just nominated her himself? Or better yet, purchased his own section of sidewalk and started his own Walk of Greatness (which would probably consist of two stars – one for him and one for her)?
On the subject of the upcoming wedding, Kanye did confirm that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star would be taking his name, thus becoming known as Kim West. He also hinted at a ceremony that would be even more epic than his proposal, and may or may not include fighter jets.
Soooo…what do you think about Kanye’s revealing interview with Ryan Seacrest? Is he crazy in love or just crazy? Tell us in the comments!
