Ms. Kardashian West had an epiphanic moment, realising she may in-fact be too sexy. In her latest interview with Vulture Magazine, the mogul revealed “I don’t know if it’s the fact that my husband has voiced that sometimes too sexy is just overkill and he’s not comfortable with that.. I have kind of had this awakening myself, I realised I could not even scroll through Instagram in front of my kids without full nudity coming up on my feed pretty much all the time. And I definitely contributed to that.”
The reality tv star had an argument with husband Kanye West on the KUWTK show, where he voiced his concerns over her being “too sexy” in her Thierry Mugler dress at the Met Gala. The night before the Met, Kanye confessed that it really affects him when “pictures [of Kim are too sexy”, saying “I went through this transition where being a rapper, looking at all these girls and looking at my wife, like, ‘Oh my girl needs to be just like the other girls showing their body off.’ I didn’t realise that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone that’s married and loved. A corset is a form of underwear. It’s hot. It’s like, it’s hot for who, though?”
At the time, Kim wasn’t having it, telling Kanye he was the one that had “built [her] up to be this sexy person and have confidence” in the first place. She went onto say “Just because you’re on your journey and you’re on a transformation, doesn’t mean that I’m in the same spot with you”, regarding his newfound relationship with religion and Christianity.
Later on, Kim spoke about the quarrel on The View, and how the two came to a compromise, sharing “I think, at the end of the day, that’s what marriage is. He’s going to do things that I don’t agree with and I support him and vice versa. With this, it was like we were having this conversation of just what is too much, and I am a mother of four, I am gonna be 40 next year…”
Kim has apparently mulled this over and since taken this realisation further, as seen in her Vulture interview and how she is choosing to express her sexuality from now onwards. She shared “I also did think, like, okay, I’m here in the White House and then the next day I was posting, like, a crazy bikini selfie. And I was thinking, I hope they don’t see this. I have to go back there next week.”
“I think I’m evolving to where I don’t feel the need to want to keep up,” she continued. “Not that I did it to feel like I had to keep up, but I guess I just don’t care as much anymore to want to take tons of photos in a thong bikini. I actually just want to lay out. I don’t care to take the time out of my day on vacation like I used to, where I’d pull up to the house and I’d see, This is a setup, this is an Instagram pic. Now this is a different setup. Oh, this place has so many different setups. This is going to be amazing. And now I’m just like, “Let’s actually live in real time and enjoy it. If we happen to get a photo, great.”
And so it seems Kim’s nude selfie era is coming to a close, or on the back-burner at least, revoking her notorious “Nude Selfied Till I Die” acceptance speech upon receiving the #BreakTheInternet Award back in 2016.
