Who did not see this coming? Apparently Kris Jenner and Kanye West are not BFFs (Best Friends Forever). Rapper Kanye West who is thirty-six years old gave an extensive interview to W Magazine, and there is an interesting anecdote from the writer in regard to how Kanye interacts with the Jenner-Kardashian clan.
Christopher Bagley, who is the writer for W Magazine, was invited into Kanye’s apartment in Paris, France while the rapper was working on his latest album “Yeezus.” In one of the visits, Bagley notes how he just missed Kim Kardashian, who is thirty-two years old, and was headed back to Los Angeles, California, but that there were other members of her family there.
“Rob Kardashian was sprawled on West’s gigantic Living Divani sofa with his girlfriend, the English model Naza Jafarian,” Christopher Bagley wrote. “They both offer friendly handshakes, then return to their smartphones. Next, Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner, drops by and looks around the apartment, which she is seeing for the first time. ‘This is amazing!’ she says as West shows her some of his favorite objects……Jenner’s rapport with West evinces equal parts jokey affection and in-law awkwardness.”
“He plays her some of his unfinished songs, including ‘Awesome,’ which is clearly about Kim. When she exclaims, ‘Great job!’ West does not find it as flattering as Jenner evidently intended,” Bagley continues. “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!”
Christopher Bagley noted that Kris Jenner, who is fifty-seven years old, “laughs of the mockery,” but decided to leave shortly after.
“Hugging West goodbye, she tells him, ‘I love you. You know where to find us, at the George V. Call us tomorrow, if you want,” Bagley recalls. “It seems apparent to everyone, including Jenner, that West will not call.”
From allegedly feuding about where Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will live, to Kris Jenner overstepping her boundaries, there have been gossips going around for months that Jenner and West do not get along.
As for Kris’ reaction to Kanye’s new song “Awesome,” let’s not forget this is the track where Kanye takes a little jab at Kim Kardashian’s mother (Kris Jenner)
Kanye raps: “Cause baby, you are awesome, you do not need to listen to your manager, you are way too hot for them to handle you.”
Kris’ on the spot “Great job!” reaction does not seem all that bad considering now that the lyric was in the unfinished version that Kanye played for her. Kanye ended up not adding the song “Awesome” to his latest album, although Kanye did perform the song at the Met Gala during May 2013.
In the same article, Kanye is extremely flattering while discussing about Kim. When Kanye was asked if he ever has any qualms in regard to appearing on the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” Kanye commented that he does it for love.
