Kanye West didn’t just shock the world when he premiered his ‘Famous’ music video — it was a total surprise to his wife, Kim Kardashian, too. Yup, the reality star didn’t even SEE the raunchy and controversial vid before he premiered it on June 24. So…what did she think?
Kim Kardashian, 35, must really trust Kanye West, 39, when it comes to his art. The 35-year-old gave her hubby absolutely no input when it came to creating his video for “Famous,” because she didn’t even see the final version before he premiered it! It’s clear that no matter how far ‘Ye went — and he went far with it — Kim was going to support him!
“I actually never saw the final edit of it,” Kim admitted to Women’s Wear Daily. “I kind of did that on purpose because I love to be surprised. It was like, three, four months in the making, so I obviously knew it was going, but I didn’t actually see the final cut until he debuted it at The Forum. It was really cool.”
So, the reality star obviously wasn’t bothered that the entire video featured her and Kanye lying naked in bed, surrounded by a gaggle of other celebs, including Taylor Swift, 26, and Rihanna, 27, also without clothes on beside them. Hey, to each their own…right? However, we can imagine that the other women featured didn’t exactly agree that it was so “cool.”
But, “Kim thinks Kanye’s a genius and totally supports everything he does,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Sometimes she doesn’t get what he’s going for, but she will always give him her love and support.”
The KUWTK star has publicly supported Kanye on numerous occasions — from Twitter rants to controversial lyrics — and this isn’t the first time she’s defended “Famous.” In her recent interview for GQ, Kim slammed Taylor, who claimed Yeezy never made her aware of the “I made that b**ch famous” lyric in the song,
“She totally approved that!” Kim told the mag. “She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn’t. So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew… I don’t know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden.” The battle is on!
HollywoodLifers, are you surprised Kim didn’t see “Famous” until the premiere?
