Whoa, Kim Kardashian and Caitlyn Jenner weren’t the only members of the fam to be considered for Kanye’s ‘Famous’ video. In fact, HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that Kris Jenner was also slated to appear in the controversial piece, but Kim convinced Kanye not to include her!
Kanye West, 39, was the genius behind his song “Famous,” but it turns out Kim Kardashian, 35, gave a lot of direction for the music video, especially when it came to which Kardashian-Jenners would be cast for it. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Kanye was considering using Kris Jenner, 60, but Kim convinced her hubby that Cailtyn, 66, would be the much better fit.
Kanye initially considered many members of the K Klan to star in his video. Kim had already been cast (duh), but he was looking for another family member that would add great value — cue Kris or Caitlyn! “In early planning stages of the video, Kanye was considering, with the help of Kim, what family members would be great for the video,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY! “Kanye mentioned Kris as well as any of the other sisters.”
Kim’s mom may have been an interesting choice, as she has endured her share of scandals over the years, but ultimately Kim thought Caitlyn would be better because of the impact she would have. “Kim encouraged Kanye to decide on using Caitlyn for mostly shock value,” the insider continued. “Kim thought having any other sisters next to her and Kanye would be gross. Kim helped inspire and focus a lot of Kanye’s ideas for the video.”
We have to agree with Kim on this one. Having Kylie, 18, or Khloe, 32, lying in the bed naked with the couple and other public figures could get a little awkward. So in this case, Caitlyn seemed to be the best pick, and she definitely brought the controversial video to a new level. You tell him Kim!
So there might have been a question on whether Kim thought Kanye went too far with the video, but guess again! Not only did she help with many aspects the visuals and casting, she also respects and supports Kanye’s creative genius. “Kim thinks that Kanye is a genius and totally supports everything he does,” another source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
HollywoodLifers, do you agree with Kim. Who would you have wanted to see in the “Famous” video — Kris or Caitlyn?
