Kanye West’s 37th Birthday — Remembering His Year
We’ll start off where his last birthday took place in 2013 and are highlighting some of the biggest moments!
June 11: The New York Times publishes a full feature interview with Kanye where he said some of his most incredible quotes of all time, including calling himself “the Michael Jordan of music” and the “undoubtedly, you know, Steve [Jobs] of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture.”
Four days later on June 15, Kim and Kanye welcome their first baby, North West into the world! His album Yeezus drops three days later.
August 23: We finally get a glimpse of Baby North — Kanye heads to Kris Jenner‘s talk show and shares the first official photo of the stunning new baby!
Two days later, Kanye stops by the MTV Video Music Awards for a surprise performance of “Blood on the Leaves,” and it’s of course flawless.
October 21: Kanye wows everyone by bringing all of Kim’s friends, families, makeup artists, hair stylists, etc. to San Francisco where he surprises her on her 33rd birthday… with a giant 15-carat diamond ring and an incredibly romantic proposal. (She said yes!)
On the 28th, he revealed in a new interview that he and Kim were planning a summer wedding and want “fighter jets.”
November 19: Kanye reveals the music video for Bound 2, featuring none other than his soon-to-be-wife, Kim… topless.
March 21: Kanye and Kim become the first interracial couple ever (and she’s the first reality star) to land the cover of Vogue. Kim stuns on the cover and the inside spread in a ton of wedding dresses and even baby North shows up in the behind-the-scenes video.
May 5: The couple hit the carpet at the Met Gala after getting criticized the year before — and look super hot!
On May 23, they officially celebrate with their friends and family in a rehearsal dinner at the Palace of Versailles. The next day, they fly guests to Italy and become Mr. and Mrs. West in a lavish ceremony at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. Afterward, they jet for Ireland for a romantic, relaxing honeymoon.
Like I said, it’s been quite the year for Yeezy — his best ever I’d say! Do you agree?
