In Praise of Kanye

Happy Monday Friends…let’s get moving and do something fantastic this week!!Happy Monday

I’ve been kinda of staying off celebrity gossip sites, another one of my #Project MILF goals, but when i saw on yahoo the headline about Kim and Kanye’s Vogue magazine cover, i couldn’t help but click on to read.

Needless to say, i encountered many negative commentaries about this Vogue cover…how appalling it was, it’s distaste to many Vogue readers, people were cancelling their subscriptions….Kimye fans were cheerig and somewhere i am sure, Kris Jenner was jumping for joy! But when it all comes down to it, i have to give praise to Kanye.

Let us all take note that Kanye is on the cover with Kim, meaning truth be told, he has more clout that she does when it comes to the world of high fashion and celebrity-hood.  The fact that a black man is on the cover of Vogue speaks volume to me than the fact that he is on there with Kim Kardashian.   How many black people, let alone black man have been on the cover of Vogue? None many i am sure.  Whether you agree with how she garnered her celebrity status or whether she can be considered high fashion (or not in my opinion), the fact that Kanye is on the cover along with his future wife speaks volume of the man.

As a man, your role is to make your significant other’s dreams come true.  And apparently she has always wanted to be on the cover of Vogue and because he loves his woman and thinks highly of her, he made the case for her to be on the cover.  And i can almost hear Anna Wintour saying to him “only if you are on the cover too”.  At the end of the day, he is more compelling than she is.  As annoying as he is…he has earned his right to be arrogant and self-righteous (in his mind) because of his art and artistry.

People may be up and arms about the Vogue cover and i would too if i actually cared about Vogue and whatever it meant for their readers to have Kim and Kanye on the cover.  But i am praising Kanye for giving his future wife what she wanted…a Vogue cover.

    Thanks, these are my thoughts exactly! In short, Anna made the decision, they’re on the cover, get over it.
    Also, as a lover of all things Miss Piggy, I do love the cover with her and Kermit! LOL

    I posted this Vouge cover on my FB Fan Page and generated zero likes or comments. I guess I was alone in seeing the beauty of the photo. I agree with you…regardless of Kanye’s continual rants, he did something to help his future wife achieve something she’d been dreaming of. Having a supportive spouse is crucial in a flourishing marriage. Great piece!

    I don’t read or subscribe to Vogue but I did see the negative comments on Facebook.
    You do make a very good point. I am not a fan of his but kudos to him for making his gal’s dreams come true.

    I have to say. I love your point of view. I’m not particularly a fan of hers. But I am a fan of his. And I am a fan of love and he clearly loves her. And no matter my thoughts on her – I do love that and hope the best for them.
