There’s nothing like a Kanye West and Kim Kardashian-West cover. The famous celebrity couple are covering the September issue of Harpers Bazaar, their fourth magazine cover together.
In the issue, they dish on selfies, vanity, what they’d like to be remembered by and Kanye’s ability to literally fall asleep anywhere. Peep a few excerpts.
Kanye favorite body part—his own or Kim’s:
KW: Is the face a body part? My favorite body part of Kim’s: heart.
KKW: Awww, now I have to say the same. But of my own, I like my upper stomach. I just seem to always have abs.When I’m not really pregnant, I have a great two-pack. [Laughs.] And of Kanye’s? I have to say his heart. And I’ve always loved his legs.
Favorite song of all time?
KW:”All Along the Watchtower.” The Jimi Hendrix cover.
KKW: I really like the song “Only One” [West with Paul McCartney].
Favorite Taylor Swift song?
KW: For me? I don’t have one.
KKW: I was such a fan of hers.
Celebrity crush when they were young:
KKW: I thought Johnny Depp was so cute when I was younger. Kanye, didn’t you like Pam Anderson?
KW: Yeah! That’s what I would say.
Historical figure they identify with:
KKW: This one is hard.
KW: Us? Muhammad Ali, Marilyn Monroe—all day. Next question.
KKW: I can smell when someone has a cavity. It’s a very specific smell—not a bad-breath smell—but something that is really strong.
KW: I can analyze people’s intentions. Immediately.That’s just a warning. To everyone.
KKW: 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.
KW: I used to have insecurity about my finances, then I announced that I had debt, and now I don’t have any insecurities.
KKW: Then you didn’t have any debt; it seemed to all figure it out.
KW: People will definitely use that against you if someone knows that. But the one thing I don’t have an insecurity about is public perception. I’m not going to conform to it, you know?
KW: Here’s something that’s contrary to popular belief: 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.
How much Kanye really sleeps:
KKW: He can fall asleep anywhere.
KW: I can sleep. I love sleep; it’s my favorite.
KKW: He took me to a fashion meeting in Paris once. I’d never met these people; I was so nervous. It was the beginning of our relationship, and I didn’t know anyone in fashion. And he passed out at the table. I’m like, “I’m so sorry, we’re jet-lagged.” You don’t know the number of times I’ve had to say that. I always flat-out lie that he’s jet-lagged, even if we’ve been home for months. [Laughs.] Me? I’m up at like 6 a.m. With my trainer, running up the hill you drove up to get here.
Favorite selfie pose:
KKW: I love a selfie in the mirror.
KW: 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.
KW: I used to do nude selfies in my single days.You’d get a good cock shot here and there. [Laughs.] Gotta keep it rock ‘n’ roll.
Who’s more vain:
KKW: I mean, me.
KW: Yeah, I think she has vanity. And with me, I don’t give a fuck, bro; it is what it is. I’m the best—now what? I don’t know if that’s a vain statement. I don’t particularly like photos of myself, though.
KKW: Yeah, what is the definition of vain? I want to look up exactly what the definition is.[Googles.] Vain, definition: “having or showing an excessively high opinion of one’s appearance, abilities, or worth.”
Tweets they’re proud of and tweets they regret:
KKW: I don’t regret any tweets. I’m not a tweeter and deleter. So I have no regrets.
KW: She hates tweeters and deleters.
Anything they wish the world didn’t know about:
KKW: Definitely. I was going to say some ugly looks and stuff.
KW: Some pregnancy stuff. You killed this second pregnancy, though.Your body slammed that crap. You made that second pregnancy your bitch.
KKW: I wish I had a little bit more privacy.
How they would like to be remembered:
KKW: 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.
KW: Determined. I would say my determination is way higher than my smartness.
KKW: A lot of people have strong beliefs, but they don’t have the confidence to really stick to them. I really respect Kanye for that.
