We’ve all had the chance to throw in our 2 cents on Kanye West’s extremely personal ye release from last week but we’ve yet to hear from the most important person in Yeezy’s life -- until now. Kim Kardashian, who is the subject of a significant amount of the album, especially the song, “Wouldn’t Leave,” has finally revealed her thoughts on the album’s subject matter.
“I was in the room for making all of the songs and hearing things and it's a really fascinating process, especially since he scrapped his whole album and redid it in the last two weeks and just came up with all new songs,” she told ET on the red carpet at the 2018 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City on Monday (4 June). “I left to go home for, like, two days and then I come back and it was a whole new album. It's fascinating to see the process."
“Did I cry about it? Did I fight about it? Yeah,” she revealed. “That’s not stuff we put on social media -- I'm not going to start tweeting what my thoughts are, but we have those moments and that was the one song that he didn't really play for me until the last minute, so I heard that last minute and it meant a lot to me.”
She went on to say that even though they “have different views sometimes” she really likes the album, and after all, “That's my husband, you know?”
