Last week’s Us Weekly Magazine claimed that Kanye West compared Kim Kardashian to Beyonce. Which garnered one, giant, exhaustive AS IF from everyone with their fingers on a keyboard. Because, well, AS IF.
On a cover story that made good filler, whetting the appetite for Mr & Mrs Pitt, it’s claimed: West is “genuinely head over heels. It’s not a PR stunt. They’re perfect for each other. He thinks she’s his Beyonce!”
Once people were done yelling at their screens, there was a long pause as people (hoped and) waited for the denial. And, finally, West has obliged. To Us Weekly. The same outlet that spread the report in the first place. ”Of course there are a lot of media inaccuracies surrounding this past couple of weeks, especially the ‘She’s my Beyonce’ quote,” West told the tabloid. “I would never compare anyone to my friend’s wife. Come on now, that doesn’t even sound like me. If I don’t say something in a rap or on Twitter, it’s not true.”
In related news, Howard Stern chewed out Kardashian’s desperation to remain relevant by hooking-up with West. Stern noted: “First of all, it’s insane that I saw her on an interview; this is a girl who got famous revealing everything about her personal life. Now she’s [giving an interview], she thinks she’s Jennifer Aniston, she’s on there: ‘I don’t want to talk about Kanye. I don’t want to speak about it. I don’t read the tabloids. Everybody back off.’ The second her show gets a dip in the ratings, she’ll have Kanye out there in his underpants dancing on her show. Come on already. Stop the nonsense. Stop the madness.”
Also, Us Weekly claims that Way Too Cold, formerly Theraflu, references Amber Rose’s relationship with Wiz Khalifa, not Kardashian’s marriage to Kris Humphries (although the NJ Nets reference is about Jay-Z and Humphries). The lyrics read: ”I fell in love with Kim around the same time she fell in love with him.” As in: “I fell in love with Kim around the same time [Amber] fell in love with [Wiz].”
In other Kardashian news, RadarOnline.com is denying reports from Joe Odom that his son and daughter-in-law are expecting a baby. The patriarch reportedly told another website that Khloe Kardashian is pregnant. However, sources are saying that’s “absolutely not true.”
