5. He doesn’t necessarily regret his VMA WTF moment with Taylor Swift, but he doesn’t want North to go through the same thing.
And he’s not talking about drinking a bottle of Courvoisier on a red carpet–although that’s likely not found on mommy blogs, either. Also, he considers himself a “rock star.”
6. He has really, really wanted to be a part of Kim’s family for a long, long time.
“Unbeknownst to [Kris],” Kanye has been Photoshopping himself into the annual Kardashian Khristmas Kard (sent to family and business associates) for years. “I’m not that good at Photoshop,” he clarified, after seeing the final product Kim graciously allowed her mom to share on national television. Good news, Ye: now that you’ve given Kris a granddaughter, you’ll be a welcomed addition to the 2013 holiday photo.
7. He’s a lover of vintage trends.
“It’s important that I walk and raise my family with Christian values,” Kanye said after showing off the simple wristband emblazoned with “W.W.J.D.” (What Would Jesus Do?), given to him by Rob Kardashian. Yes, but did he ALSO get a pair of Arthur George socks?
8. He had a crush on Kim long before he started dating Amber Rose.
Kanye had trouble recalling the exact moment he first met Kim (it’s a toss-up) but it was definitely back when she was working as Brandy‘s assistant, either during studio time (“She brought us in something to drink… something you can’t drink on daytime TV”) or during the video shoot for “Talk About Our Love” in 2004. The sweetest detail of the awkward flirtation I’m picturing in my head: Kanye’s butchering of Kim’s last name. Can you believe there was a time when people didn’t know how to properly pronounce “Kardashian”?
