You gotta hand it to Kanye West –he’s certainly determined. The rapper has always been a (very vocal) supporter of his baby mama Kim Kardashian, and now he’s making another push to get the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star on the cover of Vogue. I guess he figures if the Hollywood Walk of Fame people won’t listen, maybe Anna Wintour will.
Page Six is reporting that West and Wintour were spotted in Beverly Hills last Friday, where the rapper and the fashion mag editor lunched at the Polo Lounge. According to an eyewitness at the restaurant, the duo was in deep conversation – well, Yeezy was anyway. “They were in a corner booth, very intense. He was talking nonstop. She did not get a word in edgewise,” the source told Page Six.
Of course no one knows exactly what the two were discussing, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist – or a straight up genius like Kanye says he is – to deduce that the rapper was making another push for Kim to appear on the cover of Vogue. Kanye’s been working his magic on Anna Wintour for some time now in hopes of getting her to agree that his baby mama deserves the coveted cover spot, with no success to date. Even seats in the VIP section at one of his concerts wasn’t enough to sway the ice cold Wintour, and his controversial comments comparing the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star with First Lady Michelle Obama, who’s appeared on the cover twice, probably did more harm than good.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see if Kanye’s impassioned pleas during last week’s luncheon in Beverly Hills were enough to seal the deal. My money’s on nope.
But what do you think? Will Kanye West be successful in convincing Anna Wintour to put Kim Kardashian on the cover of Vogue? Does Kim even deserve it? Tell us in the comments!
