Kanye West wants his next relationship to be with ‘an artist and a creative person’

Kanye West admits election defeat after receiving 60,000 votes **FILE PHOTOS**

I’ll admit to spending some time thinking about who Kim Kardashian might date next, but it never really occurred to me that we’re about to see the rise of Single/Divorced Dad Kanye West. Kanye’s dating life before Kim was… well, if you go by his lyrics, it was pretty wild. His longest relationship pre-Kim was with Amber Rose, who I now think was way too cool for Ye. I’m now imagining him with some churchy girl, someone holier-than-thou and prissy, just because that would drive Kim up the f–king wall. But no, sources tell Page Six that Kanye hopes to date an artist next.

Kanye West is already thinking about his next relationship. The newly single rapper — who is in the midst of a divorce from Kim Kardashian — wants his next relationship to be “with an artist and a creative person,” a source tells us, explaining it’s so “they can speak the same language to each other.”

But his next partner has a lot to live up to. West, 43, has previously declared: “I am Michelangelo. I am Picasso.” He also told GQ, “I am unquestionably, undoubtedly, the greatest human artist of all time. It’s not even a question at this point. It’s just a fact.”

Prior to marrying Kardashian in 2014, West dated models Chanel Iman and Amber Rose. He was also rumored to have dated Selita Ebanks, and was engaged to designer Alexis Phifer in 2006. They split in 2008.

Kardashian, on the other hand, is focusing on “remaking her image as a devoted mother,” and is looking to “eventually enter politics,” said our insider.

I couldn’t see Kanye with, like, a painter. I could see him with a young digital artist or a young fashion designer though. “Young,” I believe, is the most important thing. Most grown women see through Kanye pretty quickly. Most grown women don’t want to get involved with his situation. But what about his preacher persona? Is he no longer a man of God? Feels like he *should* be looking for his next girlfriend in church.

As for Kim’s rebrand… it will last for however long it lasts. I think her next husband will be powerful and rich but not necessarily a celebrity. I keep saying this, but I could totally see her dating a politician or a political wannabe, and I could see her with a big-time lawyer.

    Whoever he will date: well good luck.

  2. Daisyduck says:

    That silver pic gets me every time 😆😆😆😆

  3. Chaine says:

    I think you’re right on the mark. “Young” is the operative word. Someone that will be in awe of him and never question him and will genuinely love wearing all of his big dumb ugly shoes.

  4. Nicole says:

    God help the woman he gets with. I see him with another artist too, because HE needs someone who equally dramatic. However, IMO, he needs someone who can ground him. Those manic episodes are no joke.

    • Rice says:

      Agreed. But she won’t be nearly as famous as him, probably a familiar face but someone who will be his “plus one”. I’m thinking of a Diddy-Cassie sort of relationship.

  5. Cecilia says:

    Ye dated Chanel Iman????? How? Anyway happy she got away from him.

    As for kim, i don’t see dating a politician. Maybe a very wealthy lawyer tho. Or a film producer. Anyway someone who’s rich but does most of the work BTS

    • Sid says:

      I don’t think any legit politician would link themselves with that family. At best it will be other entertainment types or those linked to the entertainment industry who don’t mind being part of a 24-7 freak show.

  6. Apple Tart says:

    His only real shot of happiness will be staring forever into a pool of water.

    This says it all. Good luck to whoever he picks out. Run for the hills.

  8. faithmobile says:

    Kanye married his muse, his relationships seem to fall apart when they gain agency and refuse to be directed. What he wants and what he needs will continue to be add odds until he can handle a true partnership.

    • ElleV says:

      Honestly, I think Kim is more than a muse. Kanye can’t see it through all the misogyny, but Kim and Kris ARE artists and the only reason their work isn’t framed that way is because it is populist, consumerist and incredibly lucrative art that reinforces as it redefines North American norms. People trash her genre-defining reality tv and social media career because it was always business first, art second – but isn’t that also true of most “successful” modern artists?

      • ElleV says:

        But also, 100% Kanye can’t handle a true partnership and made the mistake of thinking Kim was an Eliza Dolittle when she’s also Henry Higgins

        I could write volumes on the way the Kardashians subvert the cultural myth of the artist as starving revolutionary peddling genius to wealthy patrons, the way their work disrupts the usual dynamics of artist/subject/audience, or all the fascinating critical analysis they’ve inspired like kardashian_kolloquium on Insta… and I’m not even a fan!

    I only clicked because I simply knew y’all would post aluminum man.

  10. lunchcoma says:

    His next girlfriend will be a 20-year-old instamodel. She’ll talk about how much she’s into church, he’ll talk about how artistic she is, and it will last just long enough to help her career.

  11. Shannon says:

    I’ll be honest. After Kanye’s mother died I told a friend of mine that he would spiral out of control. I was surprised when he didn’t spiral right away. Then I was happy he didn’t because I wanted him to succeed. And for a while, I think the KK clan was good for him, but while he was with her he really started to spiral. I don’t blame the KK clan for Kanye like I do regarding Lamar Odom, but it bugs me these women hookup with these lost black men and absorb them into their klan without regard to their mental health.

    • Sid says:

      Money and attention come first for the men and women in that family, so anyone who marries in better be ready to serve their entire life up on a platter for public consumption. That sort of thing won’t be healthy for anyone.

    • ElleV says:

      I dislike how they appear to fetishize and appropriate Black people and culture – I think that’s fair criticism and something they choose. Still, I take issue with the narrative that they prey on lost men or are somehow responsible for their partners’ mental health.

      Putting aside the intrinsic pressures/toxicity of fame, codependent relationships take two to tango and both parties are usually drawn to each other for complicated reasons, even and especially when those relationships are damaging.

      I’m not comfy erasing the agency of these men in their own relationships and health. It’s not like they’re unknowns the Kardashians picked up off the street – they are successful, wealthy men in their own right whose personal flavour of dysfunction apparently matches up with the Kardashians’ dysfunction.

    Kim K: Van Jones
    Kanye: Hailey Baldwin post divorce from Bieber

  13. Tammy says:

    I honestly can’t imagine who Kim will date next. For some reason she doesn’t seem like a very sexual person or someone who wants to be in a relationship. She has herself and her kids and she seems ok with that. I’m probably totally wrong by the way.

    • lunchcoma says:

      She pretty much always has a man, so I think she will be connected with someone fairly quickly so that she can maintain her idea of herself as being desirable.

      I don’t necessarily see her as a relationship-oriented person either, though. I wouldn’t be too shocked if she she finds something businesslike and mutually beneficial.

  14. Annaloo. says:

    Candace Owned… I mean Owens. It doesn’t matter that she’s not young, bc she’s already pretty dumb and a panderer… She’s a creative bc one would have to be, telling yourself whatever you need to in order to stay in that life she’s created for herself.

    **PUKE**

    • Trix says:

      I’m pretty sure Candace is married to another conservative. I don’t wanna look it up. But I can see her attempting to recruit Kanye to her cause.

    • SomeChick says:

      maybe Joy Villa will get him to convert to scientology. or not, he believes he already has superpowers.

  15. Renee says:

    I will pray for whomever he ends up with as they are entering a zone of chaos and narcissism. Whomever Kim ends up with will need to be easily controlled and manipulated by her family. They won’t get any prayers from me.

  16. Trix says:

    So is this a slam against Kim or Jeffree Star? Both?

  17. Mina_Esq says:

    Jumping into another relationship really shouldn’t be at the top of his list of priorities right now, but to each their own.

  18. Char says:

    If Kim isn’t an artist, who is? Kim created herself, she crafted herself again and again into this “Kim” that is now a billionaire. In certain ways Kim is a better artist than Kanye, who is way more talented than her. And BTW, he has a nasty habit of bad-mouthing his exes.

  19. JustMe2 says:

    Did you guys know he was rumoured to have dated and remains friends of Mary Kate Olsen??? Kinda explains his sack designs lol

  20. I believe everything composed made a bunch of sense.
    However, what about this? suppose you added a little content?
    I ain’t suggesting your information is not good, however suppose you added a title to maybe get people’s attention? I mean Cele|bitchy
    | Kanye West wants his next relationship to be with ‘an artist and a creative person’ is a little boring.
