Kanye West Explains Why He Won't Do 'KUWTK' & Disses Kris Jenner In the Process
Kanye West may have loved Seth Rogen and James Franco's "Bound 3" video, but, according to a new interview, he doesn't share the same affections for his fiancé's reality television show. While talking with Hot 97's Angie Martinez, Kanye West explained why he dislikes Keeping Up With the Kardashians , slightly dissing Kardashian family matriarch Kris Jenner in the process — all while Kim Kardashian sat right next to him. Ouch.
Okay, okay, it's not as bad as it sounds. Apparently, West doesn't hate the show simply because it's mindless drivel/entertainment — he hates it because he doesn't agree with the way some "producers" shoot certain shots. Amongst the list of Keeping Up With the Kardashian's executive producers? None other than Kardashian's mother, Kris Jenner.
"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?" West explained, as Kardashian sat silently next to him. "I like to get a different [director of photography] or whatever."
Kardashian didn't seem too bothered by any of it, though, probably because of what West said next: "And when we got engaged, I made sure the show was there [filming] because I felt like that was something that would make her happy. 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." And that's true love.
Running at a little over six minutes, the interview is actually a pretty interesting watch — if only to see West mock the way he used to pronounce "Kardashian" before he knew Kim, because it's is the single most hilarious thing you'll hear so far today. They also discuss how they came to finally begin dating in 2012 and liken it to a "Romeo and Juliet" love story, which is pretty sweet, albeit kind of inaccurate. Did they get to the end of Romeo & Juliet? It wasn't romantic, they should probably rethink that comparison.
