Kanye West has addressed the controversial comments he made about his wife Kim Kardashian’s 2019 Met Gala dress.
The 42-year-old rapper voiced his concerns over the reality star’s show-stopping couture Thierry Mugler creation that she wore to the prestigious fashion event in a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
“I went through this transition where being a rapper, looking at all these girls and looking at my wife, like, ‘Oh my girl needs to be just like the other girls showing their body off,'” Kanye explained to the cameras in the episode, which was filmed back in April. “I didn’t realise that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone who is married and the father of now… about to be four kids.”
“A corset is a form of underwear,” The Life of Pablo hitmaker told Kim. “You are my wife and it affects me when pictures are too sexy.”
But during an interview with Zane Lowe for his Beats 1 radio show on Apple Music, Kanye revealed that he struggles with his 39-year-old wife’s constant presence on social media.
“I suffer and I appreciate the suffering because we can feel a little bit of what Jesus experienced, but I suffer on social media,” he shared. “There are other married men that I know are happy to hear me say that.
“Social media prompts women, in particular, to put out content that they wouldn’t in the past. When I was younger and I wanted to see something like that I had to pay someone who was older… Now, I have friends who have kids in high school and it’s readily available.”
Kim has not yet responded to Kanye’s latest comments.
