Kanye West & Kim Kardashian React To ‘Bound 2’ Parody
Both Kanye, 36, and Kim, 33, know just how important it is to keep their names in the headlines, and that’s why the power couple isn’t at all upset over the new creative parody.
“He realizes that not only are people talking about it, they’re imitating him and Kim — and imitation is the highest form of flattery and respect,” a source connected to the rapper told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“He’s getting to a point now where he expects this type of sh*t to happen,” the source continued. “He knows it’s coming. When it stops, that’s when the problems and the influence ceases to exist. He’s come into the mindset where [he] welcomes all the critics and criticism and all the nonsense.”
As for the female lead in the video, she has no complaints! She’s event promoting it, tweeting out the video, and engaging in a conversation with Seth!
