No matter how much time I spend thinking about it (a lot), I just can’t seem to put my finger on Kimye.
“Is it real? What’s it in for Kim? Is this just another alliterative publicity relationship hoax a la Kris Humphries? Are they terrorists? What’s in it for Ye? Is he just trying to satisfy some sick Pygmalion complex implicitly tied to his own crippling case of narcissism? Who’s playing who? Is this love? What is this life? Who am I?” etcetera etcetera.
With more layers than the major dream sequence in Inception, the multi-platform My Fair Kimye fantasy continues to play out on several levels, including Kim’s eponymous reality series, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, where Kanye is about to make his second televised appearance.
On the next episode of the show whose name I can no longer bring myself to repeat, Kanye and his stylist Renelou Padora swing by Chez Kim to Queer Eye For the Straight Guy (“no homo” K. West) the shit out of her wardrobe; that is to say, komplete a full kloset makeover on Kim!
This of course provides for some fantastic to-camera moments including “Kanye’s definitely inspired me to want to, like, be a little bit more of an individual. I think my style’s just evolving and changing and I think it should, because that’s, you know, what life is about;” and “He’s a fashion designer and he loves clothes so I’m excited to, like, collaborate with him to see what his take on fashion is.” E! have also made sure to subtitle all of Kanye’s on-air lines (all three of them) to make sure you don’t miss any classic Kanye-isms like “Oh, hell no!“
In other aggregated Kimye Kontent, West supposedly tweeted this last night before deleting it, and Kim tried to channel Diana Ross for a photoshoot and failed dismally in the act. Instead she ended up looking like the death mask of an electrocuted drag queen, so naturally I have GIF’d that shit. The love affair continues…
