Kanye West believes IgNori was ‘conceived among the Renaissance masterpieces’


The news/gossip/rumor about Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s wedding venue change was literally overshadowed by Khloe Kardashian’s ginormous butt, so it’s worth repeating: it’s now looking like Kanye and Kim will be getting married in Florence, Italy rather than Paris. Of course, we still don’t know if that’s true, although Kanye seems to be indicating that Italy is going to be playing a bigger part than France. Yeezington gave an interview to a Florence’s La Nazione newspaper where he talked about how much he loves Florence… almost as much as he loves his “muse” Kim.

Ciao, Kanye! Chart-topping rapper Kanye West has been making the most of his final few days as a bachelor, enjoying the romance of his favorite Italian city, Florence. In an exclusive interview with Florence’s La Nazione newspaper on Friday, May 16, West revealed why he and fiancee Kim Kardashian love the city, and said that baby North was likely conceived there.

“I adore Florence,” he shared. “I love Italy and the Italian lifestyle. To tell you the truth, I already came to the banks of the Arno [river] with Kim last year, just the two of us, incognito.”

“I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces,” he continued. “It was our first honeymoon. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world — for me the most beautiful in Europe.”

West’s outpouring of love for the Italian city adds fuel to reports that Florence will be at least one of the locations for his wedding next weekend, May 24, one of the most anticipated celebrity nuptials of the year. And the Yeezus hitmaker revealed he’s very excited for his big day. “[I'm] very happy,” he said. “I am a romantic: for Mother’s Day I gave Kim a wall of flowers. Family is everything for me, the antidote to the pressure of fame. Family and creativity relax me. I am happy to create for my family.”

While in Florence, West has been studying with fashion designer Ermanno Scervino, whom West describes as an “inspiration.” The excited husband-to-be says Kardashian is his muse.

“I consult her on elegance and what I wear,” he revealed. “And she does the same for me. Today as a musician I like to dress in a less showy way than in the past.”

As well as studying with Scervino, West has been making music in the ancient Italian city and is working on an album which will serve as a permanent memento of this exciting time in his life.

“I am composing a whole album, Made in Florence,” the rapper said.

Kanye “has been studying with fashion designer Ermanno Scervino”…? Riccardo Tisci is going to be pissed!! There were rumors (hilarious rumors) that Kanye and Riccardo (Givenchy’s designer) were having some kind of love affair and Kanye even has a Paris apartment close to Riccardo’s place. But now Kanye is all about Italy. Buh-bye, Riccardo!

As for all of the other stuff… because it’s Kanye, I guess people will think he’s a d-bag for talking about some of this stuff, but I think it’s cute that Kanye believes IgNori was conceived in Florence, “among the Renaissance masterpieces.” I genuinely thought that was sweet, in a very Kanye-specific brag sort of way. And his Made in Florence album? Sure. We’ll see. I’m kind of obsessed with “Blood on the Leaves” so it might be good.

    These two get so much shit (some is deserved) but he loves her and I think it’s sweet.

    • Tapioca says:

      It’s very odd – he talks the talk and seems genuine, yet whenever they’re pictured together he either looks dead-eyed and checked-out or actively miserable.

      And is it wrong that I’m quite looking forward to the wedding – after all they’ll have to outdo her pre-divorce ceremony to Kris Humphries or it’s not “real love”!

      • almondey says:

        YES! THIS. I think most of the pictures we have of Kanye are paparazzi heavy and I think that’s just the face he puts on when he’s around that- notwithstanding Kim. and I don’t really care or want to hear about “oh, but he’s marrying a woman who calls paparazzi on them” etc.

        Yes, I understand- Kanye acts in contradictory ways just like lots of other people do when they’re in love. Overall, he seems in love and people are stupid in love and overlook such things. Sue him. I see people in my daily life who act in inexplicably contradictory ways for the people they love. It happens and he’s no exception; unfortunately, he just gets to do it in a fishbowl.

    • pru says:

      From how he talks about her, it does seem like he genuinely loves her. And, for Nori’s sake, I really hope it’s true.

    • OriginalCrystal says:

      For now. Kanye’s the type of dude to be sickly in love with you and overdo it when you’re together but when it’s over he’s your worst enemy. He has no middle ground.
      Having heard his verses about her, ‘Ye sees her as a prize the he won. He gets to marry the girl that f*cked half of the hip-hop industry (no shade, she’s a hustler) and he can’t show that it bothers him or other rappers will clown him. It’s why he’s always so defensive about her, he sees the lack of respect she gets in certain circles.
      I turned in my Kanye fan card a while ago (after what he said about Jewish people, he’s a joke to me) but I wish him and his bootleg, dollar-store Beyonce the best and I hope they last for the baby. North is honestly a beautiful baby.

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      If he loves her as much as he claims and she is his muse, I hope they make it as a couple but he seems like too much of a narcissicist to be in love with anyone but himself. Every time he speaks of her it is in relation to himself. She’s not a person so much as a mirror that reflects back what he wants to see. The person he describes is not the Kim I have seen. And they both emphasis the superficial, wall of flowers not only sent and installed but also photographed, reported and mentioned. It’s just too much and it feels artificial like saccharine.

  2. mimif says:

    Am I seeing Beiber face in that header pic?

  3. Dawn says:

    I find it odd that he should brag where his child was conceived because he was basically banging another man’s wife. But Kim and KanYe are both shameless when it comes to themselves. He is a jackass.

  4. eliza says:

    What a pretentious, lying douche bag.

  5. Belle Epoch says:

    I can’t get over the Blind Gossip item that claims every aspect of this is BUSINESS. Jay-Z and Beyonce hate each other, Kanye and Kim hate each other, Beyonce hates Kim… But Kanye just turned over his music career to Jay-Z so now they are “friends.” It’s just depressing that all they care about is MONEY.

  6. Delta Juliet says:

    I’m just shocked that he’s saying they went there incognito. Does Kim even exist if she isn’t being recognized?

  7. atrain says:

    Looks like Kim is grabbing his junk in the first picture.

  8. atrain says:

    So after they get married, Kanye is going to abandon Kim and Nori and go work on an album in Italy. Just like when he abandoned her during her pregnancy. He’s a tool.

  9. The Original G says:

    I guess french vendors have passed on providing freebies, so maybe better luck in Italy?

  10. maybeiamcrazy says:

    This is a sweet interview, especially in Kanye standarts. I am waiting for a new album. The guy may be a douche but he is a good musician IMO.

  11. BeckyR says:

    What a lot of pretentious BS.

  12. Debb says:

    Of course she was conceived among the Renaissance masterpieces . . . nothing but the most sublime for him, his “girlfriend” and his daughter. He has a god complex or something.

  13. FingerBinger says:

    Elegance and Kim Kardashian should never be in the same sentence.

  14. serena says:

    LOL, oh please, spare us.

  15. MSat says:

    There is no way these people genuinely love each other. It will be another big money spectacle that will not last.

  16. Ollyholly says:

    I have to say I am very happy for him that he found his absolute perfect match, especially after losing his mother who he adored. They are arrogant and shallow, but I totally buy their love and I’m happy for them.

    And I did smile when I read that bit about North, he’s a happy dad- with an unhappy face!

  17. Nev says:

    I love him. Yeezus is a badass album.

  18. littlestar says:

    I LOVE the song Blood on the Leaves too. It’s so good! It’s a good reminder that Kanye CAN create amazing music, despite his actual talent being overshadowed by the Kardashians, hideous fashion, and the paparazzi fights.

  19. Christin says:

    Truly a master — of delusion.

  20. grabbyhands says:

    I assume that the powers that be in Florence were prepared to be more accommodating than the French to all the famewhoring going on, considering how big a deal she made over Paris.

  21. Hannah says:

    He comes across so much better and more coherently when he’s translated into Italian and then back into English.

  22. lucy2 says:

    “I consult her on elegance”

  23. Amy Tennant says:

    Ugh. I so don’t want to hear conception stories. But at least he has great taste in cities. Florence is one of my favorite places ever.

  24. Elaine C says:

    Nothing can convince me that he’s not a douche…

  25. swack says:

    Over on DM, this fashion designer has confirmed they will be getting married in Florence. So who knows. That’s all I have to say.

  26. Msmlnp says:

    I think we can all agree that the baby was conceived between two pieces of work!

  27. Bess says:

    Does anyone out there believe that this marriage will last more than 5 years? I don’t understand how their giant egos can even be in the same room at the same time.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      BESS – 5 years? I bet you an imitation Renaissance print they won’t actually be living together after six months. Divorce could take another year. We really should put all our names down on a calendar LOL – winner gets Yeezus dump for free!

  28. shellybean says:

    He can be insufferable at times, but he does really seem to love Kim and value family, even if he has to say it in his typical Kanye way. I just hope she loves him back as much as he seems to love her, because I can’t imagine how he’d take a divorce.

  29. Mingy says:

    How does he know when North was conceived? Did they f@ck that one time “among the Renaissance masterpieces.”..I can’t read/watch a Kanye interview without thinking “Biiitch, PLEASE!”

  30. Bonzo says:

    As beautiful as Florence is, it is overrun with tourists, making it an ideal venue for these lovebirds. Plus, the Arno is kind of grungy.

  31. original kay says:

    it makes me a bit sad that the header is calling a baby “ignori”.

    I realize this is a nickname, but it’s awful. we don’t use words, like the n-word, but it’s ok to poke at a baby by changing her name to something so disparaging?

  32. jane16 says:

    I fucking loathe these phony self obsessed douchebags. “…among the Renaissance masterpieces”?!?!? Kanye is gay, and his relationship the godawful kartrashians is so fake, it makes Clooney’s engagement look like true love by comparison. How can anyone fall for this bs? God, all of these creeps are so full of themselves its sickening.

  33. dorothy says:

    Can’t they keep ANYTHING to themselves?

  34. togirl says:

    This is way more info than we need….

  35. Ya-da says:

    “Concieved among the Renaissance masterpieces”….for a moment there I thought he was telling us they got jiggy with it in one of the museums.

  36. aurelia says:

    i think kayne is confused. it was ricki riccardo that he bummed by the arno last year.

  37. Maya Memsaab says:

    Kim Kardashian probably thinks ‘Renaissance’ is the name of a perfume.

  38. Darlene says:

    Please stop calling this baby Ignori.

  39. lindy says:

    Hey Kanye, I truly think your mom would not be all that thrilled over the POS you’ve decided to marry.

  40. kay says:

    Poor creature. He is delusional and its worsening from time to time. I hope he does not end his life in a mental hospital.

  41. Ravensdaughter says:

    He looks tired. Maybe stroking his own gigantic ego all the time wears him out…

  42. JaneS says:

    Damn, dude his head harder on the street sign than we thought.

  43. Amy says:

    More likely she was conceived behind a dumpster in the back of a Krispy Kreme donut shop…

  44. Caz says:

    Can’t we all make a pact to collectively ignore these two from this point on?

  45. Dawn says:

    DM reported that the wedding in Italy will not be legal because they did not contact anyone at city hall to pull the right license. Plus they are bringing their own minister to officiate. I don’t know he/she is a real minister or the one who works for PMK and their tax relief church. I so love how everyone wants to conveniently forget she was married to Humphries and refusing to give him annulment when North was conceived. These two really love to rewrite their history along with what names mean as in north.

  46. Lola says:

    Would they get rid of these two quick!!!!! Stone faced nobodies. Legend in their own minds.

  47. LAK says:

    And there I was thinking they chose to marry in Florence for romantic reasons. Nope! Kim has to move the wedding to wherever Kanye is.

  48. Alessandra says:

    Hi all ! I live in Florence, Italy, I was conceived here, was born here … Still do not think I am a masterpiece! Next week all trash people will invade my town … better to go to the beach until they have all left … Can’t stand all the Paris, Bey, Kardashians coming to my town … can’t stand the major rent the town to trash people for 300.000 Euros …
