The immortal union of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian has always left us confused. Do they ONLY talk about leather leggings or do they have other things in common? Do they order croissants at Parisian cafés or have them delivered? Does Kanye check her cellphone for texts to and from paparazzi, like he’s snooping for infidelity? And lastly, what the heck do Kanye and Kris Jenner even do when they have to be in the same room?
Kanye’s recent interview for W magazine, which turned out to be a damn bible entry (he is a GOD, duh, obviously), provided us with the greatest Kanye nuggets ever, specifically this little anecdote about how Kris Jenner doesn’t know anything and that Kanye thinks she is a high-functioning dumb-dumb:
“[Kanye] plays [Kris] some of his unfinished songs, including 'Awesome,' which is clearly about Kim. When she exclaims, 'Great job!' West doesn’t find it as flattering as Jenner evidently intended. He raises his eyebrows. 'Great job?' he says and sets off on a comic riff that cracks up everyone in the room. Toasting with his champagne glass, he says, 'Great job, Baccarat, for making a glass that can hold liquid!' He looks down at his waist. 'Great job, belt loops, for keeping my pants up!'”
Laughs all around. Let’s all laugh at Kris Jenner for calling a rap track about her daughter a “great job.” Let’s all overlook the fact that Kanye’s joking is basically what we like to call “passive aggressive shade.”
Also, there’s this:
“Hugging West goodbye, [Kris] tells him, 'I love you. You know where to find us, at the George V. Call us tomorrow, if you want.' It seems apparent to everyone, including Jenner, that West will not call.”
Boom. Kanye can’t stand Kris. It’s official. Baiiiiiiiii.
