Kanye West: 'Kim Kardashian is Marilyn Monroe'

Kanye West: 'Kim Kardashian is Marilyn Monroe'

Kanye West tries to keep a low profile as he makes his way out of a restaurant after dinner on Tuesday (November 26) in the SoHo neighborhood of New York City.

That same day, the 36-year-old rapper made an appearance at the SiriusXM Studios to give an interview.

“I have a love hate relationship with the paparazzi but actually I love them because they empower us over, ya know?,” Kanye recently said during an interview with Hot 97 (via E! News). “They are empowering us over Vanity Fair that want to say that Kate Upton is Marilyn Monroe. Kate Upton ain’t Marilyn Monroe. Kim is Marilyn Monroe, you know that. She was controversial. She [is] controversial.”

    kate upton is average and shouldn’t be compared to marilyn, but here he goes again talking crazy….

  • Emma

    He probably just makes all of these statements to make headlines. He’s biased and pussy whipped.

  • Natasha (Nataliya) Stasyi

    I used 2 tolerate him, but now… he’s IDIOT!!!! Does he want such tragic fate, like Momroe’s was, 2 his wife?! But no, I guess livin their lives&sayin such stupid things’s already a tragic fate!

  • LaCroix

    Stop comparing Marilyn Monroe to any of the “sexy women” of today. Marilyn was and is an original with no one to ever capture her appeal. So Kanye please shut the eff up already.

  • STOP IT!!

    Every since Kanye received the DNA results that North is his, he has been saying stoopid stuff!

    JJ you can spare us all of his stupidity and rants to try and create pr buzz for K. Katrashian by not making posting on them anymore. We won’t be mad just glad.

  • Steph

    WTF KANYE what effing world r u living in!?!?!?!? what a loser

  • Rocky

    @STOP IT!!:

    YESSSSSSSSSS!!! PLEASE JJ!! PLEEEEASSSEEEEE!!!!!

  • Rocky

    @LaCroix:

    AMEN!!!!!!!!

  • shahad

    no Kim Kardashian is not Marilyn Monroe , Kim Kardashian is a porn star

  • argh!

    You can tell a lot about a woman by the men she chooses…. and vice versa for the men. Just the fact that Kim would choose someone like Kanye to settle and have babies with lets me know that despite her money and beauty, well, she doesn’t think very highly of herself. If you took away her money, jewelry and fine clothing, I bet she wouldn’t know what to do with herself.

  • byebye

    It was bad enough seeing and hearing a Kardashian/Jenner on this site on a daily basis, now we’re going to have to see and hear this moron on a daily basis. I’m out of here….

  • gigi22

    There will never be another Marilyn Monroe. It is ridiculous to attempt to compare any woman today to that of a 50s beauty icon. Sorry, but Upton is no where near Monroe’s beauty or sex appeal. And, Kim K. is not even in the running. Kanye is not in reality if he thinks his baby’s mama is anything other than a reality t.v. star, who has no true talent. Everyone, including critics and stars, scratch their heads and wonder how in the world a person of no talent like her can receive the money and fame she has. Well, it’s called “promote yourself, promote yourself and promote yourself.” Didn’t she do a sex tape? Yuck! Just common trash

  • I am OVER this Loser

    Do we have the next Amanda Bynes here? Kanye talking nonsense, and who is pretty and who is not is veeeeeryy Amanda Bynes. They both need to disappear. PLEASE He completely lost it. I can’t believe Kim is with this loser; worst that Kris Humphrey.

  • Ruby

    ugh..really? that must be the joke of the year.. something is so wrong with kanye!!

  • Cam

    After I’ve read what he is talking about his trashy relationship with kim (and watching creepy music video) , I think that he has mental problems. He doesn’t know what is he talking about! I’m sick of hearing how great and influental kim is- we all know she isn’t. I used to like Kanye but now – his career is over.

  • Sayer

    I do believe this man suffers from a REAL mental illness, such as bipolar disorder.

  • rogo

    He keeps comparing Kim, with her multiple facial plastic surgeries, to natural beauties like Marilyn Monroe; that’s like comparing apples to oranges. A natural beauty like Marilyn Monroe cannot be compared to someone who has altered her appearance like Kim but he’s too stupid to understand that fact.

  • rogo

    @13 – I don’t know why you can’t believe Kim is with Kanye; they belong together. They are two greedy, vain, self-absorbed, egotistical idiots who care only about themselves.

  • rogo

    @#13 – I don’t know why you can’t believe Kim is with Kanye; they belong together. They are two vain, self-absorbed, egotistical idiots who care only about themselves.

  • rogo

    Sorry about the double post.

  • marge

    Why must we see and hear about these two on a daily basis?? They have nothing positive to contribute to anyone or anything; all they do is promote themselves.

  • Paul

    Lol Wow no a day goes by without Kanye saying some dumb shit. Kim is no Marilyn ;) Marilyn is 51 years dead and still nearly everyone knows her cause she had an deep impact on the movie industry. I doubt very much that Kim will be remembered…Don’t get me wrong I like Kim but she has no talent like Marilyn had. She is just a pretty face with a good management team around her that makes the right moves

  • Monae

    @STOP IT!!: HAHAHAHAH I’M saying!!!

  • Monae

    @rogo: I love Kim & Kanye but this statement has gone TO FAR! I completely agree with you Marilyn has acting modeling etc to her name she was famous because she was an actual actress & because she was a beautiful woman. Kim is beautiful but no she isn’t on Marilyn’s level. STOP IT KANYE

  • TheMuffinman

    Makes me wonder what Kim really thinks about what he says, if i was her id tell him to shut up about me even though what he is saying is nice it is also completely obsessive he gets weirder by the day

  • Samara80

    Omg! You don’t compare class to trash….you born with class and don’t think you classy cos you famous for plastering your personal life on TV ,he’s a tool

  • Dee

    He needs to get an effing grip on reality! Marilyn was famous because of her talent and charisma. Kim is famous because the whole world watched her ex boyfriend pee on her! Kanye knows his baby mama is famous from a sex tape and that’s why he keeps trying so hard to convince us that she is the next big icon. He is so obsessed with these Caucasian icons of film and fashion because he has a huge insecurity complex knowing that he would never be accepted into those circles. That’s why he boasts about his greatness and hers. Just watch one of Marilyn’s films and then turn on an episode of Keeping Up with The Kardashians. Kim is not even close.

  • Putain

    Shut him up already!

  • Diedre

    Ummm….yeeaahh. Kanye, if you could just shut the phuque up, that would be greeaat.

  • sandi

    What is wrong with this guy?? Does he honestly believe that Kim, with her countless plastic surgeries, is more beautiful than the naturally beautiful Marilyn Monroe or the naturally beautiful Elizabeth Taylor?? Anyone with money can go to a plastic surgeon and change their looks but few of us are born with the natural beauty of the likes of Marilyn Monroe or Elizabeth Taylor. Let him try to compare Kim with Elizabeth Taylor; he’ll be forever laughed at.

  • Sheilah

    I would be so ashamed to have such unattractive and mentally challenged man as a partner. There’s no way in this world North was planned. Not even Kim K would want this ugly dumbass to be the father of her child. She must be living her worst nightmare with Kanye. No wonder she looks so unhappy with him.

  • Darla

    This guy is off his rocker. First of all, Marilyn Monroe was, and will continue to be an icon. Kate Upton, can’t compare to Marilyn, but if I had to choose between her and Kim, I’d choose Kate any day. Kim is a disgusting, idiotic, loser that I hope becomes irrelevant soon, so we won’t hear about her or her stupid people anymore.

  • olala

    Don’t worry. This disillusional narcissist is just trying to promote that pseudo-rap album of his. He can’t buy it all by himself, can he?

  • olala

    They’ll get married, have a son called South and then they can get divorced. Somewhere in between she’ll have loads of botox and plastic surgeries and he’ll release 1 or 2 more albums. That’s business, baby!

  • Taking-A-Break

    Why is it a compliment to be compared to Marilyn Monroe? Marilyn Monroe was just an average woman who slept with married men. I actually think Marilyn Monroe was a loser. The idea of being compared to her is more of an insult than a compliment. She may or may not have killed herself. She may or may not have been murdered. Either way, she died alone. Like I stated, why would being compared to her be a compliment? Now that I think of it, Kim Kardashian is one of the biggest loser of the day – her & Miley Cyrus. May be Kanye might be right in comparing KK to MM after all. (Just make sure to include Kanye in the elite group of losers.)

  • Jessie

    Neither of them is Marilyn Monroe.

  • Ray

    He’s just a little bit slow now isn’t he. Poor guy.

  • Nell

    I guess Kris H is having the last laugh now….

  • Boo

    You ijit!

  • Boo

    Yu ijit man…
