Kanye West On Getting Turned On By Kim Kardashian: “I Can’t Be With Any Girl” But Her
While speaking at Translation’s seminar, titled “Technology, Culture, and Consumer Adoption: Learning to Read the Cultural Landscape,” at Cannes on Tuesday, the rapper — who was at the event as a last-minute addition to give his insights on brands and consumer culture — sidetracked a little to talk about how Kim Kardashian is the only girl in the world who gets him in the mood. (Because, that’s what you do at a conference, right?)
Explaining that he only strives to work for the best in the business, West likened his desire to seek out the best brands to being only turned on by his wife. Yes, he basically made the act of getting horny into business analogy.
Jay Z, because he’s No. 1. I can’t be with any girl but Kim, because that’s the girl whose pictures I look at the most and get turned on by. I’m not going to represent any company but Louis Vuitton, because that’s No. 1,” he said [via Adweek].
Furthering the Kardashian talk, the 37-year-old also talked about how he spent “like four days” Photoshopping his wedding kiss photo with his bride, which ultimately became the most-liked Instagram picture of all time. (OF ALL TIME!!)
“This is pissing my girl off during the honeymoon,” he said of the whole ordeal. “Annie Leibovitz pulled out right before the wedding — maybe she was scared about the idea of celebrity. … But I still wanted my wedding photos to look like Annie Leibovitz. Now, can you imagine telling someone who just wants to Instagram a photo, the No. 1 person on Instagram, that we need to work on the color of the flowered wall?”
He continued, “But the fact that the No. 1 most liked photo has this certain aesthetic on it was a win for what the mission is — of raising the palette.”
Well, at least it was not for naught. The snapshot generated over 2.2 million likes and Kardashian got a second vacation to make up for spending most of her honeymoon playing around with brightness and contrast sliders.
