The 36-year-old “New Slaves” rapper gave an extensive interview to W magazine, and there’s an interesting anecdote from the writer about how West interacts with the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
The writer, Christopher Bagley, was invited into West’s apartment in Paris while the singer was working on his latest album “Yeezus.” During one visit, Bagley notes how he just missed Kardashian, 32, who was headed back to L.A., but that there were other members of her family there.
“Rob (Kardashian), is sprawled on West’s gigantic Living Divani sofa with his girlfriend, the English model Naza Jafarian,” writes Bagley. “They both offer friendly handshakes, then return to their smartphones. Next, Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner, drops by and looks around the apartment, which she’s seeing for the first time. ‘This is amazing!’ she says as West shows her some of his favorite objects … Jenner’s rapport with West evinces equal parts jokey affection and in-law awkwardness.”
“He plays her some of his unfinished songs, including ‘Awesome,’ which is clearly about Kim. When she exclaims, ‘Great job!’ West doesn’t find it as flattering as Jenner evidently intended,” continues Bagley. “He raises his eyebrows. ‘Great job?’ he says and sets off on a comic riff that cracks up everyone in the room. Toasting with his champagne glass, he says, ‘Great job, Baccarat, for making a glass that can hold liquid!’ He looks down at his waist. ‘Great job, belt loops, for keeping my pants up!’”
The writer notes that Jenner, 57, “laughs off the mockery” but decides to leave shortly after.
“Hugging West goodbye, she tells him, ‘I love you. You know where to find us, at the George V. Call us tomorrow, if you want,’” recalls Bagley. “It seems apparent to everyone, including Jenner, that West will not call.”
