Kanye West: Friends Turned on Me When I Started Dating Kim Kardashian

Kanye West: Friends Turned on Me When I Started Dating Kim Kardashian

Kanye West steps out of his hotel and keeps low key on Tuesday (February 17) in New York City.

The 37-year-old entertainer recently talked with Style.com about his wife Kim Kardashian and what happened when they started dating.

“She was always my muse, now she’s become other designers’ muses,” Kanye said. “Soon as we started dating, fashion people were really opposed to the idea of reality stars. And all the relationships, the somewhat friends that I had somewhat built up, completely turned their backs on her and me. They already had their back to her, and now they turned it to me.”

“The so-called traction that I was getting in the high-fashion world was completely thrown out the window and I was finally allowed to go to school. Every day I was in my mom [Kris Jenner]’s house, in my little brother’s old room, Rob’s old room, re-tailoring a Céline skirt, re-tailoring a Saint Laurent jacket, re-tailoring a Zara top, re-tailoring Wolford … And day by day by day, [Kim and I] learned, we got better. We looked at the photographs together and she improved my style, we improved each other,” Kanye added.

    LMAO at Kanye. He really believes he’s some great fashion designer. His clothing line looked like a bunch of tattered homeless people.

  • disqus_jFAUBXqfjy

    I noticed the stocking looks like my skin color. Nude and Naked

  • Maria E. Segura

    Ohh poor kanye yo

  • really really

    What? Seriously what? What does re tailoring have to do with anything. He would have been better off going to an actual design school.

  • b324

    Maybe your friends were trying to tell you something.

  • really really

    Yeah always the victim. Poor poor kanye, his life is so tough. All of these hurdles he has had to overcome, how does he find the strength to go on.

  • caroline

    who does he think he’s kidding; neither have any friends and never have

  • caroline

    they look at photos of themselves everyday…NO, really?

  • cyclesn

    And spent their honeymoon photoshopping their wedding pics to post on Instagram. Priorities. It’s all about what’s important in life.

  • SunnyAutumnn

    I am really at a loss regarding Kanye. Poor thing is seriously delusional. He hasn’t been right in the head since that horrific car accident. Got sucked into that evil web of pimp mama Kris.

  • Welly

    You and the bitch don’t have friens. You think you have friens but you don’t. What does kayne know about fashion. Look what he wears everyday. He wears black. Your friends didn’t like Kim

  • Amy

    maybe they know what type of woman she is and they want him to share with them lol

  • Mental Floss

    So Kris gave Rob’s room to Kanye to learn how to sew? Wasn’t there a spare room that he could have used? Kris has really turned her back on Rob.
    What mother would do that especially to a son? And a son going through depression and who knows what else?
    Shame on you Kris. Stop focusing so much on Kim and start focusing and supporting your other children.
    And Kanye if you don’t know why your friends turn on you when you started dating Kim, then something is wrong.

  • Mental Floss

    Kim and Kanye looked at photos every day and said, “That’s about right.” And that’s the extent of their design. The kind of clothes that were made by someone who is not a designer.

  • JC

    Haha! What a freak’n dweeb.

  • http://notonly.ru/ Маргарита Бабовникова

    do you have friends?

  • http://notonly.ru/ Маргарита Бабовникова

    I retailoring my Zara tops too.

  • Natasha

    They still think it’s all about them!

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    This dude just makes me giggle. And the more I giggle the angrier the giggles become. This is the meaning of hysteria.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    They’re so pathetic and pretentious.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    Do YOU?

    (See? Anyone can play this stupid game.)

  • cyclesn

    They need to make a documentary about how people get this vacuous in the first place.

  • Jon M’Shulla

    That is believable. The opposite, her friends turning on her over him, is believable too.

  • suzybel

    This guy is really into himself.

  • http://notonly.ru/ Маргарита Бабовникова

    No, I don’t. I’m too pretty and clever, people avoid me.

  • Lucille McGillicuddy

    Wow, he really is certifiable. SMH

  • Chrissy

    Retailoring??? That’s priceless!!!

  • catlady

    Seems to me every time the Kartrashian women date or marry someone they lose their careers. Tells you something doesn’t it?

  • Soncie22

    Couldn’t agree with you more..Also, Kanye sounds a little pathetic referring to Kris Jenner as “Mom”

  • Alfred Major

    kanye west fashion look like trash he think he a fashion designer your friends tell get away from her before she hurt you bad did evey guy married to bad fake wedding for money what a joke

  • LaBelleBoho

    He denigrates the memory and legacy of his late mother, Dr. Donda West — a respected educator — by calling PMK “Mom.” How dare he….

  • LaBelleBoho

    Yeah….like Kim “retailors” her face…

  • Mocha23

    Kanye your friends knew you could do better.

  • angelina

    Copying other designers and creating a line from it doesn’t make you a fashion designer

  • Ray row

    Every picture I see him in, he looks like something my grandmother would wear. Over sized black t shirt and then something white. Large jewelry and then throws a hoody in for good measure with high top tennis shoes. I mean once in awhile he dresses like a dude but with the money he has should be able to go elegant. Believe me my granny doesn’t dress elegant she dresses so she can get her adult diaper to fit. Please this guy is not super fashion and his wife, well. She is a good example for what not to be, so they are both useful providing what not to wear.

  • 1bestdog

    No, his friends would be more interested in him.
