Kanye West on Kim Kardashian’s Nude Selfies: ‘To Not Show It Would Be Like Adele Not Singing’

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have landed their first Harper’s Bazaar cover.

The power couple gets super candid in September’s issue of the magazine, discussing everything from their favorite Taylor Swift song to nude selfies. The rapper even sets the record straight about his debt, while the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star talks about that nude mirror photo that broke the internet.

Although they don’t talk about the feud, when asked what the two’s favorite Swift songs are, Kanye says he didn’t have one and Kim simply replies, “I was such a fan of hers.”

However, one thing The Life of Pablo rapper loves a lot is his wife’s nude selfies. “Like, I love the ones from the side, the back ones, and the front,” he says. “I just love seeing her naked; I love nudity. And I love beautiful shapes. I feel like it’s almost a Renaissance thing, a painting, a modern version of a painting. I think it’s important for Kim to have her figure. To not show it would be like Adele not singing.”

It turns out Kim does too. “I love a selfie in the mirror,” she tells the magazine. “I was about to get in the shower; I took a nude selfie, kept it in my phone for over a year. I just liked the picture, so I was like, ‘Let me put censor bars on it and post it.’ I don’t do things to be like, ‘This is powerful. I’m going to show you guys that this is my ‘message.’ I’m not that type of person. I’m empowered by it, but I’m not doing it specifically to show power.”
