Kanye West Slams Kate Upton, Says Kim Kardashian Is the New Marilyn Monroe

Gabrielle Chung / November 27, 2013

When it comes to this generation’s most iconic buxom bombshell, Kanye West doesn’t think that title belongs to two-time Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton.

Going on yet another rant — this on lasting a whopping 42 minutes — this, the rapper slammed the bikini model on Power 105’s Breakfast Club radio show, telling listeners his girl, Kim Kardashian, is a more deserving to channel Marilyn Monroe on the cover of Vanity Fair’s 100th issue than the bikini model.

“I have a love-hate relationship with the paparazzi, but actually I love them because they are empowering us. They are empowering us over Vanity Fair that want to say that Kate Upton is Marilyn Monroe. Kate Upton ain’t Marilyn Monroe, Kim is Marilyn Monroe,” he said.

Please note, this is also the same guy that said: “My daughter is in a position of a level of royalty like the prince and princess in London.”

Sure. A Hollywood spawn certainly holds the same power as the future king of England. Okay.
