Kanye West Thinks the Kardashians Should Have “Plenty of Emmys by Now”


The rapper usually speaks his mind (and often without even thinking particularly hard), so there aren’t any real surprises in his latest interview. Kanye explains that he thinks the Kardashians deserve some Emmy awards for their show and he even describes reality shows as ‘an art form’ (which obviously helps him sleep at night):

“My wife and her family shoulda had plenty of Emmys by now. I feel proud to be in a family that has so many people breaking ground for the generations to come. It’s like, whoa, reality show! That’s so f–king new as an art form. But reality shows are considered to be like rap was when the Mondrian wouldn’t let Run-D.M.C. and motherf–king stay there because they were rappers. Or the idea of a reality star not being allowed into a fashion show or not being nominated for their show even if it’s the longest running, and the most popular, and everybody I know watches it and s—t.”

The rapper does sound vaguely down to earth when he says he realises any of his problems are created because of his fame and money, while others struggle to simply feed their kids. He commented:

“Do I worry about being in the public eye and raising kids? Yeah, any situation you’re in you’re going to worry about raising kids but it’s champagne problems. There’s people who can’t feed their kids. That’s something to more to worry about. So I’m not going to sit here and complain about the so-called problems I have. These aren’t real issues. There’s people at war…That celeb s–t, it’s not real s–t… You know what, I’m alive. I’m breathing… I have no problems.”

He hasn’t yet settled on a name for his son and his wife is due in a few months:

“I don’t have a name for him. But what I hope for him is that he can feel purpose.”

His biggest inspiration is no longer fashion, he now looks to his daughter:

“Three years ago, after this interview, I would’ve been on the train back to Paris to see the last of the shows to get that inspiration. Now, I’m on the first flight home to see my greatest inspiration, that’s my daughter.”
