Kanye West really told Kim Kardashian that her sexiness hurt his soul

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West arrive at the 2019 Met Gala in New York

I know I have to cover a Kardashion story when there are suddenly feminist thinkpieces being written about some scene in Keeping Up with the Kardashians. So let’s get into it. In Sunday’s episode of KUWTK, they were showing scenes of the family preparing to go to the Met Gala. As everyone remembers, Kim wore that crazy Mugler corset-dress which gave her a “wet look.” It didn’t really seem on-theme, but sure. She was one of the most photographed people on the gala red carpet, which was Kim’s goal. Kanye was also there, but apparently he did not approve of Kim’s whole sexy look:

After almost a year of preparation, Kanye waited until the last second to make his feelings known—because apparently, Kim’s look is all about him!

“Like, the corset, underwear, all that vibe…I just feel like I just went through this transition of being a rapper and lookin’ at all these girls,” he said. “I didn’t realize that that was affecting, like, my soul and my spirit.”

Kanye also made it clear that he’s not super into Kim showing off her body since he’s “someone that’s married and in love and the father of what’s about to be four kids.” Naturally, Kim wasn’t having this ridiculousness and seemed visibly pissed, saying, “The night before, you’re going to come in here and say you’re not into the corset look? You’re giving me really bad anxiety….I don’t need any more negative energy.”

Kanye still pressed his point, though, saying, “You are my wife and it affects me when pictures are too sexy,” while Kim shot back, “You built me up to be a sexy person and have confidence! Just because you’re on a journey and you’re in a transformation doesn’t mean I’m in the same spot with you.”

[From Cosmopolitan]

Kanye spent years bragging about Kim’s body and her sexiness and how much money she earns from selling her image as a pin-up bombshell. And now he wants her to tone it down? Horsesh-t. And this is totally about Kanye’s newfound preacher vibe – he suddenly wants Kim to be his conservative (MAGA?) church wife. And I would tell him to GTFO too.

Other stories involving Kim… her Halloween decorations are so funny/dumb: she’s doing a very chic pale-green pumpkin/gourd arrangement in a pile outside her house. And Kim has also posted a ton of photos from the Armenian baptisms of her children – go here to see.

    I hate when people suddenly have this transformations and expect you to change with them too. My sister and I still don’t speak we used to party hard together then she became saved and then she slowly cut me out off her life. Smh

    • Swack says:

      My daughter’s SIL did the same thing. They had her husband’s vasectomy reversed because having sex is for procreating only. Her children get 3 presents at Christmas because that is all that Jesus received. They, maybe, see them twice a year – Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    • Tw says:

      Yes, some people only live in extremes. And if you find actual balance, they get critical. Bieber is another one whose pendulum swung too far to the church.

    • Christina says:

      My sister did that, too. Evangelical when she married. We were never particularly close, but she makes no effort to know my kid. She had 5, and my mom and I kept trying to keep them in our lives by visiting and having them stay with us. I could never have all of the kids at once, but I am grateful that she didn’t keep her kids from us. Her hubby is an evangelical narcissist, and she supports his every decision.

      • MariaS says:

        So did my sister. It created a huge wedge in her relationship with the rest of my family. We were fine with her new belief system (not for us but her choice) but she judged the hell out of us for not joining her at this fundamentalist church.

      • Ang says:

        So did my sister. Turned 18 and met some older super religious lady and bam! Southern Baptist cult with 4 kids and we hardly talk. To be fair, we’ve never been close as I am not a bigot and I don’t believe in religion. It’s torn my whole family apart, my parents try to get them to put them in school but they just won’t because they want to shelter their children and it’s just sickening and sad.

  2. AmyB says:

    While on the one hand I can “sort of” understand where Kayne is coming from – she is his wife and the mother of his children. But as Kaiser so aptly pointed out, he literally built her up and bragged about her sexiness/hotness for YEARS!!! Now you want her to tone it down? Yeah, GTFO

    • Keekee says:

      I remember years ago when she said she was going to tone down the sexy and then once he entered the picture she was practically his babrbie doll(he did the same to Amber Rose) and even convinced to do the full frontal Paper cover.

      • AmyB says:

        @Keekee EXACTLY! He would full on brag about her all the time! He really has issues, no offense.

    • Sarah says:

      No, man. It’s a huge red flag when a man tries to control a woman like this. A lot of red flags with Kanye, however. Kim seems to ignore them, for the most part

      • Jess says:

        Yep, huge red flags. I actually watched this episode Sunday, I’ve seen maybe 10 episodes over the years when nothing else is on, but Kim shut his bullshit down very quickly. I was actually surprised because it did seem like she was his little puppet Barbie doll for years. I figured she did whatever he wanted, but nope he stormed out of the room and she rolled her eyes and shrugged her shoulders, good girl!

  3. Eleonor says:

    Kim answer was on point. That’s all I have.

    • otaku fairy.... says:

      This. Men are not entitled to pure/modest wives, and the woman’s clothing and purity (or lack thereof) do not ‘make the man.’

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      I wonder if we can see the changes in her already? I wonder inside how often she second guesses herself and her choices
      I wonder how replaceable she feels given that he cloned her after Amber Rose

      Her fashion has been majority dire since Kanye. I know now a fashion darling but god knows how (not the Mugler). I remember when he had someone fix her wardrobe.
      His bland aesthetic which is now de rigueur.
      His move to Utah
      His becoming a preacher
      Her being told to tone it down
      Where does it end? Wherever it stops it will no doubt be blamed on her in the end…..

    • Seraphina says:

      Yes, I respect her a lot more after hearing her answer. Good for her.

  4. ChillyWilly says:

    Kanye gonna Kanye. It’s totally misogynistic. He will have her wearing mu mu’s soon and next year he will want her to be half naked again. I still don’t believe these two are in love. He is her chosen sperm donor and she is his dress up doll.
    I really do love that Met Gala dress though. She looked gorgeous.

    • minx says:

      They are two narcissists who have zero chemistry. She got children out of him and he got someone to dress up. I don’t think they even live together.

    • Sarah says:

      100% misogynistic. And on the abuse spectrum. Red flag.

    • Kebbie says:

      He is being abusive by saying that stuff and thinking that way. I don’t think she’s actually in love with him so his words probably don’t have the same effect as they would if they were a legit couple. Hopefully it doesn’t escalate to anything else, you never know with Kanye.

  5. BayTampaBay says:

    Kanye really is a nutcase.

  6. ME says:

    Not too long ago Kanye talked about his porn addiction. He said before meeting Kim he would watch her “tape” hundreds of times and that’s probably one of the reasons he became infatuated with her. Now he’s all religious and wants her to change. Dude you knew who you were marrying ! But also the show is scripted and fake so it may all have been just for ratings as they do.

  7. Cindy says:

    Unpopular Opinion: Kim looked great that night. It wasn’t exactly on theme, but whatever.

    Kanye’s being ridiculous and I don’t want to talk about him. I can’t stand him.

    • Elaine Stritch says:

      Agreed! I think it was on theme- The current cover girl going as an amped up version OF HER COVER is on-point camp. It was well thought out and executed.

      Kanye can take a walk….

    • TQB says:

      While I disagree about the dress, I 100% support your second statement, so let’s go back to talking about the dress.

  8. HK9 says:

    ‘ol jackass.

  9. grabbyhands says:

    I’ll take “Fake ass storyline that PMK came up with to give her prize grifter some feminist cred and an out in case of a divorce” for 10, Alex.

    Why do people keep falling for this?

    • lucy2 says:

      That was my first guess too, everything with them is always fake for TV.
      But I can also totally believe he’s “changed” and wants her to also, because he’s a controlling narcissist.

    • minx says:

      Thank you. Fakety fake fake.

    • Lala11_7 says:

      There’s a LOT about PMK et al that’s fake…

      However…I’d bet REAL MONEY…that was NOT!

      Besides…we ALL KNOW that Kanye wouldn’t LOWER HIMSELF to lend his…ahem…talents to a fake story-line….

    • Cindy says:

      Do I think the Kardashians lie for attention? Pffft, of course.

      After all the stunts he’s pulled, am I willing to give Kanye the benefit of the doubt? No. I’ve seen Kanye do worse than this with my own 2 eyes.

    • Agreed. Anything to make this family “real” I suppose. This isn’t the first storyline to give her an out, it’s just the latest in a string of “evidence” when it happens. Feminist lawyer breaking free from the man… in season 739 of KWK…

  10. ooshpick says:

    Her “sexiness” hurts my soul too.

    • kelleybelle says:

      Since when are big rubber fakers sexy? Or a face so full of botox and fillers that it can’t express emotion?

      • Jules says:

        I think he meant to say “trashiness”.

      • otaku fairy.... says:

        ☝Part of the problem.

      • Jules says:

        Trying to stifle women and shut them up based on your own one sided views…. that’s the problem

      • otaku fairy.... says:

        Criticizing both sexes for calling women trash (and other dehumanizing slurs) based on female modesty is not ‘stifling women ‘ or ‘telling women to shut up’. Holding both to the same standard when it comes to how women are treated is equality, actually.

      • Neverremember says:

        No one is being stifled. IMO KK is so ridiculously contrived there is nothing remotely sexy about her but pointing out that trashy when used to described a woman’s look is pretty firmly based in sexism isn’t stifling you. You gave your opinion, someone else gave theirs. Your ability to speak your own opinion was not curtailed in any way. Being responded to =/= censorship

      • otaku fairy.... says:

        @Neverremember: 👏👏👏Truth. #TheyALLKnow

  11. whatWHAT? says:

    I know people keep saying this, but I can’t see this marriage lasting much longer.

    he’s gone full Church Lady MAGAt, and she isn’t going to change her method of moneymaking any time soon. they’re never together. Ye needs to be medicated to be healthy, and he refuses to do so. what’s to say that he wouldn’t take his piousness to another level while in an extreme manic phase and decide that she needs to repent (die) for her “sins” of being sexy and showing her body? not being sarcastic here. if I were her, I’d worry about my and my kids safety.

    • Leigh says:

      I’m completely over Kanye but it’s a little irresponsible to insinuate that someone with no known history of domestic violence is suddenly going to kill his wife and kids. These are the types of negative stereotypes that both black men and people with mental illness constantly have to deal with.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      but Leigh, sometimes it does happen like that. no history of any physical abuse in a family and then one day the mom or dad freaks out and kills the spouse and kids. skin color doesn’t play a part.

      I’m not insinuating or implying that he’s likely to do that. I’m just saying that it happens, Kanye is unwell mentally, and who knows what he’s capable of. “it hurts my soul” is pretty dramatic/extreme language. if I were her, for HIS safety and my own, I’d want him to be healthy.

    • otaku fairy.... says:

      That’s a good point though. Possessive, misogynistic attitudes about female modesty and purity are behind a lot of femicide and different forms of violence women and girls face. That doesn’t necessarily mean that this will happen with these two. Hopefully it doesn’t. But demonizing and dehumanizing real and hypothetical immodest women is a part of the culture that people have gotten too comfortable with, and the emphasis is put on women toler8ing it rather than on dealing with it. It’s connected to victim-blaming too.

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        This is the very basis for “honor killings”. Keep that in mind.

      • otaku fairy.... says:

        You’re right. Links don’t always work properly, but Sheena Pradhan had a good piece on it a few years ago.

    • Jaded says:

      Kanye is walking a very thin line between acting mentally stable to very unstable, we’ve all seen him going through his manic phases before, triggered no doubt by going off his meds. So now that he’s proselytizing his fundamentalist religious beliefs we have no idea how far he will take it. Will he become a new self-professed messiah? Will he demand that Kim wear long robes and stop wearing make-up? I think this will become a real bone of contention in their already wobbly marriage and could very well end up with, at the very least, some mental/emotional abuse. Kim’s a tough one though, she’ll ride this through and if her marriage ends, oh well, she’ll find herself another man in a New York minute.

  12. Chica71 says:

    She is not sexy.. she seems like a ‘thing’

  13. Jo says:

    They make beautiful children.
    That’s all I’ve got.

  14. Nicegirl says:


  15. Lucy says:

    He’s a sexist a-hole. Good for her for shuting that sh*t down.

    • otaku fairy.... says:

      This, and an immodest woman or girl has just as much right to stand up for herself as the girl or woman who was genuinely trying to be a classy good girl. Saying otherwise is inequality.

  16. Chaine says:

    Ironically, since she got with him she’s become so OTT injected and waxed and tweaked and squeezed into his ugly clothes that she’s just about the complete opposite of sexy.

    • lucy2 says:

      He had her doing some truly awful ads for his “clothing line” also.

      She looks so overly altered now, it’s weird. I think that dress is really pretty and interesting, but she looks like a cartoon now and ruins it.

    • naomipaige99 says:

      +1. You’re right on with all of your points!

    • Ashipper says:

      Yeah, and it’s hard to believe that that house is really her taste. I went through a KUWTK watching phase a few years ago and she had a Mediterranean style house that was so gorgeous. She was so proud of it and it seems to really suit her. Her house now is beyond weird.

  17. OGNoraCharles says:

    Yet another reason Kanye can fuck right the fuck off! Now I’m cheering for Kim, First of Her Name, Mother of the Vultures of Culture, KARDASIAN!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    Goddamn it folks, we are really in an extinction event. *sigh*

  18. MariaS says:

    I don’t know if this was faked for the show but he’s done this before. Remember how he idolized Amber Rose and when he got with KK talked about having to take 30 showers first? Like AR was now dirty and disgusting? He’s a misogynist.

    • otaku fairy.... says:

      Yep. That was, and he is misogynistic. Too bad others will encourage it sometimes by shaming girls for not being chill about it.

  19. naomipaige99 says:

    In my opinion, if anything, she’s sleazy sexy!

  20. Steff says:

    I hate when people blame his BPD for his political views and misogyny.

    • ThEHufflepuffLizLemon says:


      Mental health may adjust your filter or your connection with reality. It doesn’t make you a racist, homophobe, or sexist.


  21. Jules says:

    This entire piece is straight out of The Onion.

  22. Tata says:

    Kanye literally has a bar that says “You’re such a fuckin’ hoe, I love it”. This wasn’t that long ago and he was referring to his wife. He’s becoming more a hypocrite the more religious he becomes which isn’t surprising.

    Self-righteous, delusional (believing in imaginary things) and admitted mental illness is a toxic combination. He’s being allowed to deteriorate because the Jesus freaks think because he slaps god on everything it’s OK.

    It’s not going to end well.

  23. bobafelty says:

    Sometimes I wonder if they’ve ever even had sex…

    • HK9 says:

      You’re not the only one….

    • Joanna says:

      Me too. Neither seems very sexual to me. Ray J said they would stop sex so she could fix her makeup. Despite her attempts at sexual allure, I don’t think she’s that into sex.

  24. Jen says:

    The biggest headscratcher to me isn’t Kanye but that her hideous outfit with her increasingly horrifying body is considered sexy.

  25. pk says:

    It’s being reported he’s the religious one YET Kim and her kids were the ones who just went to Armenia to get baptized lol. I think they both just use “religion” as they feel fit. In other words, to get pr for an album or whatever it is Kim is promoting.

  26. serena says:

    Because it’s all about him.. gtfo Kanye!

  27. Jenny says:

    I don’t mean to sound negative but what is/was her transformation? Getting in shape and losing the baby weight? She really is stunning.

    • OriginalLala says:

      extensive plastic surgery

    • ME says:

      You can clearly tell she’s had a lot of work done head to toe. That figure is not from exercising or dieting. If so, she would have lost weight in her boobs and ass but for some reason the women in this family get bigger boobs/ass but smaller everywhere else hmmmm. Also, just go back to the first season of KUWTK and you can clearly see the amount of work she’s had done on her face too…her beautiful Armenian nose is gone and NOPE it’s not from “contouring”. She really does think we are stupid.

  28. Joanna says:

    I can’t stand fucking men w double standards. This MF talked mad shit about Amber Rose. Fuck him and his transformation. And the guys that said anything to get into my pants, then dumped me afterwards for being “too easy.” BITCH YOU WERE THERE TOO!

  29. JanetFerber says:

    I have to say, I think this is a good look for Kim (but probably for no one else in the world). This is her image and it’s so on point. She does this look very well. She was also on point in her comments to Kanye.

  30. Melbelle says:

    I’m just counting down to that divorce announcement.

    Good on Kim. She deserves credit for this.

    • ME says:

      The Kardashian sisters and mother are executive producers of the show. If they wanted the scene cut out they could have easily done it. It was left in there for a reason. I think Kim is done having kids, she doesn’t need Kanye anymore.

  31. Mel says:

    I believe this to be manufactured drama. They’ve got everyone talking about it and them, right? Kris probably wrote every line of dialogue between them between stirs of her cauldron.

  32. JanetFerber says:

    Mel, yes, you are right, of course.
