Kanye West: Kim Kardashian is a modern day Marilyn Monroe

Kanye-Kim

Kanye West thinks Kim Kardashian is the modern day Marilyn Monroe because she is controversial.

 

The ‘Bound 2’ hitmaker has blasted Vanity Fair magazine for featuring supermodel Kate Upton, 21, styled to look like the ‘Some Like It Hot’ star, on the cover of its recent 100th anniversary issue and hailed his fiancee,33, for being similar to the late legendary actress because she divides public opinion and is controversial.

 

The rapper told Chicago’s Power 105.1 radio station on Tuesday morning (26.11.13): “I have a love hate relationship with the paparazzi but actually I love them because they empower us over ya know Vanity Fair and Graydon Carter that wanna say Kate Upton is Marilyn Monroe. Kate Upton ain’t Marilyn Monroe. Kim is Marilyn Monroe, you know that. She was controversial. She [is] controversial.”

 

Meanwhile, Kanye believes he is similar to the late animator Walt Disney and Renaissance artist Michelangelo.

 

He said: “I’m more like, a Walt Disney or something. Like, rap is just a chamber of my thoughts. It’s something that I really wanted to express as a modern-day poet, because you know, if I had lived in a past lifetime, maybe I would have been a playwright or something. But in this lifetime, to be the most heard and the most relevant, the most relevant is to be a rap rock star. You can express at the highest level there.”

 

He added: “I’m like Howard Hughes! I’m like [NBA commissioner] David Stern! I’m like Steve Jobs!”

 

The 36-year-old star also brushed off the idea that he may not be worthy of such comparisons.

 

He said: “If anything, that’s a compliment to them! I’m like Michelangelo. Because I’m the new version of that. This is a reality. I’m living inside of a dream world.”
