Barbara Walters recently shocked (and angered) fans by including Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on her 2013 list of most fascinating people. But recent comments from the broadcast journalist indicate that Kimye’s presence on the exclusive list has little to do with a sense of admiration. The other day, she slammed Kanye for his incredibly controversial history. What gives?
Those protesting Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s presence on the 10 Most Fascinating People list for 2013 may want to remember that the adjective in the description is ‘fascinating,’ not ‘talented.’ Barbara Walters clearly acknowledged this during the obligatory Kimye segment, highlighting Kanye’s contributions to the music industry before adding, “As for Kim’s talents, well she’s very good at being herself.”
Biting words! But Kanye West wasn’t free from criticism. Musing on why Kim fell in love with the hip hop artist, Barbara asked a series of hard-hitting questions regarding when, exactly, the reality star fell in love. “Was it the time [Kanye] insulted Taylor Swift? Or the moment he insulted George W. Bush? Or the time he threw a punch at a paparazzo. Who knows? Love is a mystery.”
No response just yet from Kimye, but we all know how well Kanye West responds to criticism. Kim Kardashian does pretty well with humorous jabs, but Barbara Walter’s jabs might contain a bit too much snark for the reality star to turn the other cheek.
