Kim Kardashian: Dating Kanye West Better Not Be Just A Publicity Stunt

Thu, April 5, 2012 6:26pm EDT by Bonnie Fuller 28 Comments

Kim, your fans can’t take another romance that seems shady. Plus, Kanye’s been crushing on you for a long time — you CAN’T break his heart.

Kim Kardashian, you and Kanye West have embarked on a whirlwind of very public dates over the past 48 hours. First, you went to a performance of Sleep No More — an artsy interactive play, that’s a re-telling of MacBeth.

Next, you two took in a screening of The Hunger Games; then you were photographed doing the “walk of shame” coming out of his apartment this morning, April 5, and then had a sweet PDA-filled lunch date at Serafina, one of Kim’s favorite restaurants in NYC. Then it was on to shopping at famed children’s store, FAO Schwartz. And finally, it was on to clothes shopping at designer-filled meat-packing district boutique Jeffrey.

Kim, you’re in NYC to co-host The Today Show tomorrow morning, but the visit seems to be providing you and Kanye the perfect opportunity to publicly romance just a day after Star magazine named Kanye your alleged lover, while you were still married to Kris Humphries. That timing feels very curious.

Listen Kim, I don’t know whether those cheating allegations are true — hopefully, they aren’t — but I can say your fans really don’t want you embarking on any romance that’s not totally heartfelt.

You may have told the world repeatedly that you’re a “hopeless romantic” and that you truly were in love with Kris Humphries when you married him and that you just quickly realized that the relationship was wrong for you after you tied the knot, but many of your fans are still skeptical about the whole thing, especially with Kris asking for an annulment due to fraud.

You need to restore the faith that your fans want to have in you.

Even more importantly, you can’t toy with Kanye’s feelings. Kanye, 34, has been crushing on you for close to four years!

He first rapped about you in  his 88 Keys’ song, “Viagra” in 2008, singing “try imagining something passionate / Between you Cassie and Kim Kardashian.” Then he was at it again in a guest rap in Jamie Foxx‘s “Digital Girl” this time rapping: “”Plus every good girl wanna go bad / In Playboy mags like Stacy Dash Or Kim Kardashian / be a lady at, it.”

Then Kanye actually made a cameo appearance in your 2011 music video, “Jam (Turn It Up)” and guested in an episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York in 2011.

Plus, you appeared in Kanye’s failed TV pilot Alligator Boots.

Kim, Kanye has had you on his mind for a long, long time. In fact, his “thing” for you outlived his romance with model Amber Rose.

Now, he’s revealed his romantic fixation with you AGAIN on his just-leaked new single “Theraflu” in which he raps “and I’ll admit, I had fell in love with Kim/ Around the time she had fallen in love with him/ Well that’s cool, baby girl, do ya thang/ Lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.”

And whoa, in “Theraflu,” he’s not just confessing his obsession with you, but he’s actually publicly dissing your soon-to-be ex-husband, Kris. And he’s hitting him at the place where it REALLY hurts — his basketball career.

So listen, Kim — this guy has seriously liked you for a very long time. Khloe Kardashian said, “Kanya has been best friends with Kim for a few years,” during a Feb. 15 radio interview and Kanye’s ex, Amber, actually accused you of breaking up her relationship with Kanye.

You need to consider his feelings. Yes, he’s a major A-Lister and it’s great publicity for you to date him, but like I said — your fans just can’t take another romance that seems more like PR than the real deal. So please, when it comes to romance from now on — make sure it’s REAL!
