A lot of people say that the Kardashian's show too much skin, are too provocative, and promote the wrong message. The thing is, you probably never thought that one of those people was inside the family! It turns out that Kanye West, who has very publicly gone through a journey to become Christian, is becoming increasingly frustrated with his wife Kim Kardashian's sexy outfits.
On a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim and Kanye got in an argument over Kim's dress she was wearing to the Met Gala. The dress was a nude colour and was made to look like she was naked and dripping wet. Kanye voiced his concerns to Kim, saying he didn't realize how much this affected him.
"The corset, underwear, all of that vibe, I just feel like I went through this transition from being a rapper, looking at all these girls, and then looking at my wife like, 'Oh, my girl needs to be just like these other girls, showing her body off, showing this, showing that,'" he admitted. "I didn't realise that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone that's married and loved, the father of what's about to be four kids. A corset is a form of underwear. It's hot. It's like, it's hot for who though?"
Kim was visibly upset, mainly at the timing of Kanye's comments, which came the night before the big event.
"The night before the Met, you're gonna come in here and say that you're not into a corset vibe? You're giving me really bad anxiety — what are you talking about?" she told him. "You knew last night that I was having really bad anxiety, and I don't need any more negative energy for you to now say that you're not into me wearing a tight dress."
She also pointed out that part of the reason she's confident enough to dress like that is because of how Kanye encouraged her to do that stuff when they were first together.
"You built me up to be this sexy person and have confidence and all this stuff," Kim pointed out. "Just because you're on your journey and you're on a transformation, doesn't mean that I'm in the same spot with you."
The argument opened a lot of eyes as to how Kanye and Kim are dealing with his transition into someone more reserved, but while promoting her beauty line on The Real, Kim tried to explain to people that it's just a part of being married. She also admitted that originally the dress was a little more explicit.
"The dress initially, since I was wet coming out of the water, there was nipples attached to it," Kim revealed. "[Kanye] was really certain that he didn’t want that on the dress and had mentioned it multiple times."
Kim also admitted that arguing is a part of marriage, and that she does need to think about the message she's sending to her kids.
"I think, at the end of the day, that's what marriage is. He's going to do things that I don't agree with and I support him and vice versa," Kim said of the fight. "With this, it was like we were having this conversation of just what is too much, and I am a mother of four, I am gonna be 40 next year, like when is it time to…" (she was cut off by applause after mentioning turning 40).
"I do think that, you know, he is my husband, so I obviously wanna honour him and what he’s feeling," Kim continued. "He's been going through this life change, and it's mostly about the kids."
Kim went on to explain that Kanye is trying to monitor what content their kids consume, because he doesn't want them to see "harmful imagery."
"The kids are getting older, he's very cautious about what we have in the house — we got rid of the TVs in the kids' rooms and removed makeup from North's room," Kim said.
Despite Kanye laying out some strict rules, Kim pointed out that she agrees with what he's doing and it's just because he wants to protect their kids.
"He's been very...had this epiphany of being this...not that he wasn’t an amazing dad, but being a little bit more strict as a dad and being very forceful on the imagery that's in our household and what they see. I actually agree with it, but I'm always gonna be me. I love that beautiful journey as well, and I think that's such a great example for our kids. But, you know, there's also that fine line of staying firm and doing what you feel comfortable with. I take a little bit of him, and I respect what he's saying, and I totally compromise."
It's not the first time that Kim and Kanye have had somewhat differing opinions on how to raise the kids. Recently, Kim spoke more about how Kanye took all the makeup from their six-year-old daughter North.
"North is trying to get in on the makeup but she's being blocked heavily because her dad has stopped all makeup for her until she is a teenager," Kim said, adding that the discussion had turned into "a big fight in the household right now".
"It is what's best," Kim said. "I think as a parent you just learn and figure it out as you go and we realized we didn't really want her to wear makeup at a young age. I'd let her wear — you know, she has a little red for Christmas — I'd let her wear a red lip, or I'd let her do one pop of something. I'd let her, if she's wearing a black dress, a black lip. So I kind of got in trouble for that."
"I think [Kanye] had it; he changed all the rules," the beauty mogul continued. "So, it's now no more makeup."
Kanye also spoke about how his newfound religious perspective changes the way he lets his daughter dress. Even though when she was a baby the celebrity parents dressed her a little more "adult," he doesn't think it should continue now that she's older.
"I don't think North should wear crop tops just because I had her wearing a slip dress when she was two-years-old," Kanye said. "I think and feel differently now, now that I'm Christian, now that I'm founder of a three billion dollar organization and married for five years."
It's interesting that a family who has built their entire empire off of being sexy and showing themselves off to the world is now trying to hold their kids back from doing the same. I wonder how long Kim and Kanye will be able to make these compromises.
