Kanye West on Why He Hates ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’
Kanye West has made cameos here and there with fiancee and baby mama Kim Kardashian on ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,’ but they’re pretty few and far between. And now the mouth-running rapper is explaining why. Is it because he thinks fake reality shows are trashy? Is it because he feels like he’s being used for publicity? Is it because he knows Kris Jenner is diabolical?
Of course not. West’s reasons for skipping out on the series, which is clearly and painfully scripted at times, is because of the cinematography.
He told Hot 97 (via Vanity Fair), “I don’t really do her show just because I don’t particularly like the way the producers shoot some of the shots. I’m very meticulous to that, right? I like to get a different DP [director of photography] or whatever.”
So why did he cave and have kameras around when he popped the question — in a huge way — to K.K.? He explained, “When we got engaged, I made sure the show was there because I felt like that was something that would make her happy.” Aww! He added, “Regardless of how it was shot, I felt like this is a moment she would like to have and would like to share, and just have that documented. And we could decide later or not to air it.”
So Yeezy gives Kardashian makeovers and wants to control the cinematography of her reality show? C’mon, bro. No one man should have all that power.
