Kim Kardashian & Kanye believe that their late parents are black crows

Kim Kardashian gets a helping hand from her man Kanye West while they grab ice cream

Of all the magazines out there, I barely pay any attention to CR Fashion Book, which is something like Carine Roitfeld’s pet project. It’s, like, more elite than Vogue and also kind of dumb in general. Roitfeld has a thing for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian too – she’s featured both of them in CR Fashion Book multiple times over the years, sometimes together, sometimes separately. In the latest issue, Kim is featured separately from Kanye, and the photoshoot is… um, Civil War Ghost vibes. Literally. Kim described the shoot as being dressed up as a “ghost from a simpler time.” Kim is about two seconds away from writing a post about the “allure of antebellum,” I swear. You can see some of the photos below:

Some highlights from the interview:

On the corset she wore for the shoot: She shows off her 24-inch waist and says this was her “easiest” shoot because she “didn’t have to suck it in.”

She’s not a diva:
“I’m not a diva who shows up on set and has all these demands of specific angles and glam and how I want to look. I like doing things that aren’t me or aren’t the way that people typically see me, and I love to see that version too.”

She believes in the spirit world: “I believe there are signs from the spirit world all around us. When my dad was sick with cancer, we were laying out by his pool and I said, ‘If you die, you have to come back in the form of a bird.’ We were driving on the freeway right before his funeral and this huge flock of birds flew over the 101. Everyone stopped because it was so crazy looking. I was like, ‘There you are.’”

Kim and Kanye believe their late parents are birds: “Kanye and I always reference birds. We seem to see a lot of black crows… Yesterday Kanye took a picture of the two black crows that are always at our house and always together. We always say that they are our parents hanging out together at our house.”

On superstitions: “I can be superstitious at times. Like before going on an airplane. My family and I always step onto the place with the right foot first. Another superstition is that whenever we hear an ambulance, we always touch our hair. I also say a prayer that the person will be okay. I’m big on prayer and superstition together.”

[From People]

Hear an ambulance and touch your hair? Step onto a plane with the right foot first? Those are some random superstitions. Then again, I share my pillow with a black cat and I watch The Craft every time it’s on TV. My point is that people do some random things. I was actually somewhat touched by the story about the birds – I think about that kind of thing all the time about my late father, especially considering he was a Hindu and he believed in reincarnation. Whenever I see the family of deer who live near me, or the bunny who lives under my deck, I always wonder if that’s him.

      No they’re people. Unless you mean like in th movie mannequin?

    • Andrea says:

      When will she and her family go the way of Paris Hilton? We never hear about Paris Hilton anymore why is that? Did Paris stop feeding the machine and therefore interest died? Or did interest die and the she faded? I just feel like surely her 10 min of fame is up!

  2. Appalachian says:

    Sooo…does she think Armenian women are that dark?
    What is this look?

    • AnnaKist says:

      It’s her WOCB – Woman of Colour by Osmosis… So faique.

      I get that she probably does have “personal rituals”,but:
      1. Most right-handed people lead with the right foot. I always take the first of any steps with my right foot, as does almost everyone else in my large (mostly right-handed) family.
      2. Every evening we get several flocks of different birds passing over our home – sulphur-crested cockatoos, galahs, even a small flock of pelicans. It’s because we live less than 5 minutes from a huge, beautiful, native botanic gardens. I guess it’s all about “belief”, because I’ve never believed that they’re the spirits of lost loved ones.
      3. Every morning, all I hear is birdsong, despite living in a pretty built up area. Birds are always in my front and back yards. I have a couple of crows nesting in one of my gum trees. I still laugh heartily when they call out to me each morning: “Faaaaaaaaaaark!”
      4. Our superstitions usually come from our elders/culture. Rather than touching their hair when they hear an ambulance, most people I know hold their right hand over their heart. All the old Nonnas make the sign of the cross.
      5. These things happen everywhere, in similar or different forms. The Wests are not at all unique in their beliefs or little rituals, as they’d like to believe.
      6. No one asked, but these two always make me feel that they’re barking mad.

      • TassieGirl says:

        ANnakist do you live in the shire south of Sydney by any chance?

      • FLORC says:

        I cant say I believe in reincarnation, but I still wonder if my father is something else, like a bird. Energy transfer. Idk… its comforting.
        So, no matter the messenger, I won’t take any issue with this. It’s how someone will cope with a loss. It doesnt hinder anothers life. So, no issue unless you’re looking for an issue.

    Kanye, Sonny Crockett called and he wants his Miami Vice suit back!

  4. Swack says:

    There are all kinds of stories linked with people in heaven. Where I live (and this may be other places also) they say if you see a cardinal bird (other than the ones at the ball park) that it is a loved one visiting. Also they say if you randomly find pennies that a loved one in heaven put it there for you. I believe that spirits roam the earth and are around when you need them most. Also anyone wearing that red dress (with what I guess is the corset she is talking about) during the Civil War was most likely a lady of the evening.

    • Nancy says:

      Absolutely the Cardinal. I have stories too fresh and new, but seeing a Cardinal after the death of a loved one is definitely a sign.

    • Erinn says:

      The cardinal one is really important to my husband. We get a few that like to hang out and look into the house from the Quince bush outside. He got a beautiful cardinal tattoo on his inner bicep, too.

      I’ve almost always seen deer when I’ve been really upset or hurting. Kidney stones – on the way home from the hospital I saw three in an area where I normally would never see any. Dealing with emotional crap – one walked into the middle of the road as I pulled out of the driveway and just stared at me calmly for a minute before sauntering off. We found out my husband’s family crest has a big stag on it as well. It’s been a trend for a while now – about as long as my grandfather has been gone. He was a really outdoorsy guy who LOVED deer. So I’ve always just associated it with him. I’m a pretty logical person for the most part – but when it comes to things like this that provide comfort, I’m really fond of it.

    • Christin says:

      “When a cardinal appears, an angel is near…” I have also heard the penny story, and I do believe spirits do exist to help and reassure us. There were things that brought me comfort in times of grief that I cannot explain, but were real to me.

      I say a prayer anytime I hear a siren. I pray for those in need, those trying to help them, and those who love them. One of my co-workers was leaving church services when she heard the ambulance siren that she later learned was on its way to assist my Dad. She told me that she had said a prayer for whoever it was. I suddenly realized how I needed to do the same.

      • Nancy says:

        You gave me goosies 🙏. I say little prayers for different reasons as well. I hope your dad was ok. When a Cardinal appears, an angel is near. I will remember that. I am not superstitious, but believe in the power of the Universe, and the spirits that inhabit the Earth, for the most part, to give us comfort.

      • Christin says:

        Nancy, I discovered the cardinal rhyme (which I recite each time I see one) after my Dad passed. I found him unresponsive an hour after I last spoke to him and he did not make it. Unexpected to us, but I think he knew his days were limited (I think people can just “know” that).

        Like you, I don’t think I’m superstitious, but I increasingly believe in comfort through certain things/signs. I had read years ago about pennies appearing to recently grieving folks, and sure enough…experienced it.

      • Nancy says:

        Christin, how difficult that must have been for you and your family. The solace you can find in it is that he went quickly and didn’t linger. I agree that some do know when it is their time. I learned that last spring when I lost someone suddenly. After the shock, I recalled recent conversations and it all made some sort of sense. This wasn’t an old person. I have been given Cardinal pictures, poems, puzzles, you name it. I cherish each and every one, but none so much as when I’m outside and see a Cardinal in its glory. I will have to read about pennies, as that I don’t know of. I do know when someone close to me passed several years ago, my Movado watch stopped. I went to put on costume watches, and they had all stopped. Don’t know why, but it’s not a coincidence.

      • Christin says:

        Nancy, pennies from heaven stories were shared in Dear Abby’s (original) column for several years. I started reading her column as a teenager and was struck by the stories people shared. They would find a penny out of the blue, and believed it was a message from a loved one.

    • Dutch says:

      Black crows? It must be true because I have always thought these two were hard to handle.

  5. Harla says:

    I don’t know much about reincarnation but isn’t having the soul inhabit a human body and then an animal body a step backwards? If anyone knows about this I’d sure like to learn more about it.

    • Nikki says:

      Great question, and I had a similar thought. I was raised Hindu, and specifically a Bhramin (really, it doesn’t mean much today. It was back in the caste system days)…anyway, I recall my mom saying that you have to be re-incarnated thousands of times to be finally born into a human form. All of your wrong doings in this life may be punishable during this life, and also next. So do good. Be good. That’s how karma works. But, again…i’m not completely sure about this. If anyone wants to chime in, I’m all ears!

  6. TurkeyLurkey says:

    Must be millions of ambulances out there because those ladies constantly are petting, stroking and fondling their own hair.

    • AnnaKist says:

      *Doubles over, chortling* 🤣🤣

    • InquisitiveNewt says:

      Not usually their own hair, either, but something from the Wig Vault. If they’ve bought their hair, rather than touching their own, does it still count?

      @Kaiser – re the Lady Antebellum vibe Kim is weirdly channelling, she does know about black history and miscegenation laws, right? Probably not.

  7. Snowflake says:

    GUYS, THIS IS HER NATURAL SKIN TONE ABOVE. So stop saying she’s just tan when she looks darker. Look how dark she is when she’s going to a POC’s wedding. Blackface. She is the classic example of what my husband says. Everyone wants to be black, but they don’t want to BE black. She wants to dabble in black culture, be “hip,” but can you imagine if she had to deal with actual racism? She is shielded from much of it because of her money. I’m white, my husband is mixed. We get stares sometimes when we go out. Hubby is also big and stocky. If she had to deal with a fraction of the racism normal people endure, she couldn’t handle it.

  8. Bp says:

    Looks like there was a siren in that last photo

  9. me says:

    Yes, her dad is now a black crow and living at her house because she was his fav too? Forget about the others right?

  10. TassieGirl says:

    Is Kimmy trying to bring back this hideous neon green? It was abysmal the first time round and even worse the next.

    I just can’t with these fake, wannabe tryhards. They are bordering on the ridiculous. Actually screw that. They are already there 😂

  11. Cee says:

    We lost a family member to cancer some 4 years ago; she was 43 and had two young children. Her youngest was 5 years old at the time and he believed every butterfly he encountered was his mum, visiting him. To this day he loves butterflies and always stops to look at them.
    I know Kim and Kanye aren’t 8 years old, but sometimes you have to believe in certain things if they bring you comfort.

  12. TJ says:

    I don’t love the Kardashians but I think it’s sweet that she says a prayer when she hears an ambulance. It’s kind of innocent and just so… good.

    • JennyJenny says:

      I’m sorry @TJ, but you BELIEVE that?
      Just another “Kimmie Tale” that makes for a good sound bite. Like they say, if her lips are moving….

      • Leigh-Klein says:

        To me it means someone is in trouble. Some people cross themselves, too. To each his own. But I hear you on her constantly fibbing.

  13. Tania says:

    When I moved stateside and we took possession of our house, I went out on the back deck to look at the yard (where I wanted to build a pool) a lone rabbit was in the backyard. The community where my Dad was from is a place of the rabbits.

    When Mom first came to visit there were 2 rabbits hanging out in our yard.

    My when Grandpa passed away and we went to his grave the day after he was buried, 2 deer walked right up to us, bowed their head at my Mom and walked away. She’s sure it was her Mom & Dad.

    We had my nieces for the summer and we surprised them with a trip to Disney World. In Animal Kingdom on the Safari tour, there was one lone rabbit sitting beside the wild animals that even the tour guide was surprised to see it.

    The day before my wedding, I was raking leaves in the backyard – the ceremony was small, in our backyard – and I was standing there with a rake and watching a butterfly and it flew right up to my face and smacked me in my nose. The butterfly was a symbol of my Dad’s clan.

    I’m generally a “science” person but the universe is full of unknowns and in my culture, our People that moved on to the next life are always visiting.

    So, while I don’t give much thought to Kim/Ye, I do believe in our ancestors visiting us in various forms.

  14. Christin says:

    There is little I side eye anymore when it comes to how someone deals with their memories of a departed loved one. If birds or butterflies bring peace, then so be it. There is far more to this world than we’ll ever be able to understand.

    I personally believe we’ll see both our people and pets again. I lost a sweet little rescue cat unexpectedly yesterday, and I have no doubt that someday we’ll see each other again.

    • Andrea says:

      I’m very sorry to hear that, Christin. I’m so sorry for your loss :(

    • Nancy says:

      Sorry about your cat, Christin. When I was little and our dog died, my mom said dog spelled backwards is God, so of course, I believed all of our pets were in Heaven. I hope your beliefs are true. There are so many that believe when we die, that’s it. You don’t have to believe in God to believe there is something after life, another phase. We will all find out eventually. None of my business, but I’d get another rescue soon. People always say wait, but that won’t bring back the pet that is gone or give a home to one that needs one. xo

      • Christin says:

        I believe in a wonderful heaven that exceeds what we can envision, so that helps me think our furry friends will be there.

        Several homeless cats and a dog came into my life just before two significant human losses. It’s been a rough year on the pet loss side for me this year, but I still have one dog and a few cats. I will have pets as long as my age and health permits, that is for certain. I waited too long to get another pet years ago, and vowed not to repeat that mistake. As you say, so many need a home.

      • Nancy says:

        You can always get an older pet. They need love too! Housebound till December, so I’m too chatty on here these days. Thank you for the Cardinal poem, and to @Swack as well. Rough year for me as well. Sometimes, the simplest things are the things that touch your heart.

      • me says:

        @ Christin

        Sorry for your loss. Just wondering, do people who think animals go to heaven also believe snakes, sharks, spiders, etc. also go to heaven? Because ummm lol…

    • Tessy says:

      I believe that too, Christin. I’ve had experiences myself that reinforce that belief.

  15. Anastasia says:

    Huh. In that civil war photoshoot, her skin is so much lighter!

  16. ME says:

    Kim’s at the White House again right now trying to “free” another prisoner. Any guesses on what color Kim’s skin is today? I’m guessing White as ever.

  17. InquisitiveNewt says:

    @Kaiser and all others BTL who have suffered such significant losses: my deepest sympathy and condolences to you all. I hope that you have been able to find some comfort, however ephemeral, in the legacy your loved ones left in your characters, your souls.

    -My darling black kitty died of cancer over a year ago. I mourned him dreadfully and still do. But one night I felt paws on my ankle as I lay in bed – called to his brother kitty to see if it were him… Saw a shadow in his favourite place on his special blanket and turned on the light… Nothing there. He’s visited a few times. I’m the least credulous and most irritatingly insistent on logic sort of person full stop, so cannot believe this was mere hallucination or wishful thinking…

    Someone who had a life after death experience said that they saw all their beloved lost pets waiting for them excitedly, as if they had been away on a long trip and were returning home. I do hope that’s the case.

    • Nichole says:

      Like you, I tend to think I’m a logical person. As mom was in her final hours battling cancer, she told us that she could see her siblings and nephew waiting for her. She was not a religious woman. She wasn’t ultra lucid in the end, but she confided that with a certainty that I still can’t articulate, one that to this day makes me wonder.

      We’re coming up on one year without her. I have her rocking chair, the very first piece of furniture she bought for herself when she graduated nursing school. I keep it in a special place in my living room with one of her crocheted blankets on back but otherwise always make sure the seat is empty, just in case.

  18. A says:

    Reading this post was a trip. I’m Hindu also, and one thing my family always references is the idea that our ancestors occasionally come back as crows. I think this is perhaps specific to where my family is from, but it’s definitely a thing. My family still feeds the crows hanging around their house if they see them, especially if it’s before lunch time. I don’t believe in god, but my family is important to me, especially the ones who have passed on who I think of fondly. I don’t blame anyone for thinking what they think tbh. The crows I see around are probably not my relatives, but the symbolism itself is a potent one for a lot of people.

    That being said, Kimye is weird af and I don’t trust them or their insight. But on the off chance they’re reading this–feed those crows. Before they start dive bombing you like that one crow in Canada who stole a knife from a crime scene.

  19. minnie mouse says:

    All I have to say is….Kim and Kanye need strict mental testing. If they think their late parents are black crows, then my late auntie is a reborn labrador retriever.
