This just in: Kanye West is very smitten with Kim Kardashian.
In a radio interview with Hot 97 yesterday, the rapper gushed and gushed over his bride-to-be, making it clear just where he believes Kim stands in the pantheon of hot women.
"Okay, ladies and gentlemen," Kanye said. "All barber shops, fashion designers, architects, corner stores, Wall Street, all over the world:
"Y'all acting like this ain't the most beautiful woman of all time! I'm talkin', like, arguably of human existence - the top 10 of human existence."
West, of course, put his fiancee on full display in the Bound 2 music video that continues to generate headlines and went on to say he's loved Kardashian "from the first day" he saw her.
"Our love story's a love story for the ages," Kanye added. "I felt like when we first got together, it was like a Romeo and Juliet kind of thing."
"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."
Seriously, West says. He and Kim may be in the exploitation business, but their relationship is the real thing.
"Why don't we start the conversation with love?" Kanye asked. "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."
It's about beauty, people, and the topic now on the table: Is Kim Kardashian the most beautiful woman in the history of the world?
