Kanye West Thinks His Wife’s Reality Show Should Be Winning All the Emmys
Oh, Kanye West. What are we going to do with you?
Kanye sat down for a nearly two-hour long interview for for SHOWStudio’s “In Camera” series and, as you can imagine, it was about 98% feeding Kanye's ego and 2% other stuff.
Among the notable things that Kanye vomited out is about the “art” of his wife's reality show, Keeping up with the Kardashians (yes, the same show that let us in to the moment where Khloe admitted she sniffed her sister's vaginas.. click that link only if you hate yourself).
Kanye had this to say:
“I feel proud to be in a family that has, you know, so many people breaking ground for the generations to come… I just feel that reality show is so f*cking new an art form, to the point where my wife and her family should have had plenty of Emmys by now – but reality shows are considered to be like rap was when the Mondrian [hotel] wouldn’t let Run DMC and motherf*cking Will Smith stay there because they were rappers..”
He's also flabbergasted at “the idea of a reality star not being allowed into a fashion show or not being nominated for their show, even if it’s the longest-running and the most popular [show]… Everybody I know watches it and shit.”
Okay, okay, let's back up here. First of all, KUWTK very well may be the most popular reality show of all time, and if it's not, then it's definitely up there. But, Kanye seems to be forgetting a little show back in 2002 on MTV called The Osbournes which is widely known as the first non-scripted family reality show of its kind. And, guess what Kanye, that show DID win a 2002 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Reality Program. And Ryan Seacrest, who dreamed up the idea of the Kardashians' show, has openly said he was inspired by the success of The Osbournes.
I know Kanye truly, deeply believes he's an artist of the most divine and philosophical kind, but he's just flat-out wrong here.
If you have two hours to spare and hate yourself, you can watch the interview here. He also waxes poetic on fatherhood, fashion, and he calls himself Michelangelo.
