Kim Kardashian and Kanye West look about 10 seconds away from being NSFW on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar’s August issue, but it’s the magazine’s interview with the famous couplethat really gets intimate.
In a rapid-fire Q&A, Kim and Kanye reveal everything from their favorite Taylor Swift songs (amid their very public feud with the singer) to what they want the world to remember them for most. It might not be as juicy as Kim’s recent spread in GQ, but the quantity of eyebrow-raising quotes from Kanye definitely makes up for it.
Kanye on what he loves physically about Kim:”My favorite body part of Kim’s: heart.”
Kim on being authentic on social media:”I don’t regret any tweets. I’m not a tweeter and deleter. So I have no regrets.”
Kanye on the public’s misconceptions about him:”I actually don’t like thinking. I think people think I like to think a lot. And I don’t. I do not like to think at all.”
Kim on the drama surrounding her nude selfie:”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.”
Kanye on the extremes of his personality:”I’m a mix of a 14-year-old high schooler and a 60-year-old guy. It can never fall into the 30s or the 40s. It has to be 100 percent 60 or 100 percent 14, no in-between.”
Kim on what she would do if she were invisible:”I would probably creepily follow my kids around, see how they act, see what they talk about. I record my daughter just talking because the things she says are so funny. I could watch her talk all day.”
Kanye on how much he adores seeing Kim naked:“I love her nude selfies. Like, I love the ones from the side, the back ones, and the front. 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.”
Kim on making her mark:”I’d like to be remembered as someone who was smart in business, works hard, and can be sexy and a mom. A powerful but still sexy, nonconforming woman. And I would hope that Kanye would be remembered for being smart and sticking to what he believes.”
Kim on her biggest insecurity:”I would say looking fat sometimes. I really do take it seriously. I try to do what I can and diet and stay in shape, and it does make me insecure when I’m heavy.”
Kanye on his favorite Taylor Swift song:”I don’t have one.”
