Kanye West has urged Kim Kardashian to take style tips from Duchess Catherine.
The rapper believes his girlfriend of six months - who shot to fame after making a sex tape with her then boyfriend Ray J - could learn a lot from the British royal's "poise and sophistication" along with her conservative style.
Speaking about the duchess - who was previously known as Kate Middleton - a source told the Daily Star newspaper, "Kanye has been urging Kim to tone down her make-up and style her hair in a more conservative style, like Kate. And it's not just Kate's regal look that Kanye wants Kim to mimic. He's also told her that she could learn a thing or two about poise and sophistication from Kate."
Kim recently revealed Kanye has managed to convince her to live her life at a slower pace and focus less on her work and more on her personal life.
Kanye West has taught Kim Kardashian to slow down. The reality TV star has been dating the rapper for around six months and Kim admits before she started her relationship with him she was living life too fast so didn't have time to appreciate things.
"I've slowed down a little bit and for the better. It was a good lesson learned. I now make it a priority to take time out for myself and have private vacations," she said.
Kim also said she's learned from her mistakes in the past but has never been put off finding love: "To be in a happy, healthy relationship means everything. It's everything when you want to share your life with someone. We all make mistakes. Life is about learning as you go and not making the same mistakes again. Nobody is perfect. I don't ever try to be. I try to be responsible and honest and open. You have to trust your gut. Happiness is everything, life is short, and you should never not be happy. Relationships go through different things, and that's completely normal. But you know when you're happy."
Kanye West has splashed out over one million dollars on Kim Kardashian's 32nd birthday.
The reality TV star will celebrate her big day next month and her rapper boyfriend is so determined to make it extra special that he has arranged a private island vacation and bought her some special designer gifts.
"Kim has been really down about turning 32 and having two failed marriages behind her and no children, so he wants to make this extra-special. Plus it's her first birthday since they've been together as a couple. Kanye has never been shy of splashing out on the women he loves, but this time he's pulling out all the stops with presents," a source told The Sun.
Kanye has also arranged for them to travel to Pine Cay, a private island in the Turks and Caicos group of islands in the West Indies with a group of their friends where he will throw a huge birthday bash for Kim. Designer gifts include a made-to-order special edition Prada bag, lined in a 'KK' print, a diamond bracelet and a Chanel dress.
Kris Jenner has warned Kanye West to stop talking about Kim Kardashian's sex tape.
The musician recently rapped about the intimate video his girlfriend made with her ex Ray J in 2003 but after TMZ claimed he used to watch it to get himself in the mood while having sex with his previous lovers, her mother Kris told him off.
"Kris had stern words with Kanye when she saw that he said he would put Kim's sex tape on while romping with other women. She thinks it's a disrespectful claim and told Kanye to stop talking about it at every given opportunity. As far as Kris is concerned, the video with Ray J is history and since then Kim has become a reality TV star, a fashion designer, even a philanthropist - so she's moved on. By bringing up the past, Kanye is making it worse for Kim, but he doesn't see it as that much of a big deal," a source said.
Kim Kardashian wants kids with Kanye West.
The 31-year-old reality TV star "definitely" wants to start a family with the 35-year-old rapper and thinks he is the right man to give her the children she has always wanted.
"Kids are definitely something I want. I think I wanted that before. I think I fell in love so quickly and wanted that to be my life so badly but I just didn't take the time to find someone. I definitely think anything I'd be in now is a permanent relationship," she said on The View.
The curvaceous beauty spoke candidly about her six-month romance with the "Stronger" hitmaker - who brags about her infamous 2007 sex tape in his latest track "Clique" - and described him as her perfect match. "In a perfect world you know when you find someone that you really think is your perfect match," she enthused. She was then quizzed, "Is he?" to which she replied, "I think so."
Kim Kardashian and Beyonce Knowles "barely" speak to each other.
Despite their respective partners, Kanye West and Jay-Z, being great friends and touring together, sources claim the two women aren't close and don't really communicate when they are watching the men perform. "Kim and Beyonce barely spoke to each other. They were on opposite sides of the stage. Beyonce didn't even acknowledge [Kim] was there until the concert was almost over. [Kim] didn't make any efforts to go speak to Beyonce either," a source at the recent Made in America Festival in Philadelphia, told the New York Daily News newspaper.
Kim Kardashian thinks that similarities are "essential" in relationships.
The reality TV star loves the fact she and boyfriend Kanye West have a shared passion for fashion because it means they can have "in-depth" discussions about their careers, and she thinks common interests will be increasingly more important as they get older.
"If I have a design meeting, or he has one, we come back and talk about how our meetings went. It's cool, because you can definitely get more in-depth with someone who actually knows what you're talking about ... So that's been a fun similarity we have. I think it's essential to have similarities. When this whole life is done, and it's just the two of us sitting somewhere when we're 80, you want to have things to talk about that you have in common. I think that's something maybe I didn't value as highly as a quality I cared about in someone."
50 Cent has slammed Kanye West's choice in dating Kim Kardashian. The rapper - whose real name is Curtis Jackson - has always been a musical rival of Kanye's but now he may have ignited a bigger feud after suggesting his girlfriend is "trash."
Referring to Kanye's new song "Perfect B****," which he said is about Kim, 50 Cent reminded readers that the reality TV star is only perfect in her partner's eyes. "I mean ... if that man feel like she's perfect, then she's perfect. He could mean it and you'll end up singing the words to it because he's Kanye," the rapper told XXL.
The rapper continued to say that what one man considers beautiful could be seen as ugly by another. "You know how it is? One man's trash is another man's treasure," he added.
The artist - who used to date talk show host Chelsea Handler - then said he didn't know if there was such a thing as a perfect woman. "I'm not sure. The smartest guys I know have lost being a bad judge of character in that area," he continued.
Kris Jenner is angry at Kanye West's "Perfect B****" tribute to Kim Kardashian.
Kim is said to be flattered by her boyfriend's latest tribute - which tells how he's been with so many girls but now found his ideal woman - but her mother is upset at him referring to her as a b****.
"Kris told Kim to get a grip, saying no woman should be called such a term," a source told The Daily Star.
Kanye, 35, debuted the new song at New York's Dream Downtown club last Friday, where he was partying with Leonardo DiCaprio. He reportedly pulled out a laptop and asked DJ Reach to blast out his new songs. Those who heard it said "Perfect B****" contains numerous references to Kim's famous curvaceous figure and eye-popping butt. The hip-hop star previously rapped about being in love with Kim on "Way Too Cold," which referenced her ex-husband, basketball player Kris Humphries.
"Perfect B****" will be featured on Kanye's upcoming Cruel Summer album.
