Kanye Says People Bash His Relationship with Kim Because It’s an ‘Interracial Relationship’
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Kanye West is back to doing what he deems as controversial interviews to get attention and now the newly married rapper is once again speaking out about his romance with Kim Kardashian.
The couple gets quite a lot of backlash as a result of their publicity stunts but Kanye claims critics of their union are only not supportive because it’s an interracial relationship.
He tells the media:
“You have to be able to take the lashes of people not understanding. It took two years of people not understanding an interracial relationship like that. You have to take the lashes and be able to swim in backlash.”
Kanye now says he thinks if the Vogue cover came out before the “Bound 2” video, people would have loved the video (even though he claimed several months ago that the video was supposed to be terrible):
“I still take a bashing for the Bound video. I always say that if Vogue had come out before the Bound video then everyone would have been like, ‘Oh it’s OK’ and that’s the endorsement. It took something established like Vogue to make everything OK and we had to wait. Like we had the wedding and then they were like ‘that’s cool now,’ because we were told by people who endorsed it.”
And asked why he feels Kim was meant to become his wife, he says it’s because of her looks:
“I can’t be with any girl but Kim because that’s the girl I look at her pictures the most and I get turned on the most.”
