Even though entrepreneur Kim Kardashian built her empire on the heels of a sex tape, her husband, rapper Kanye West, suddenly doesn’t want his wife to be “too sexy.”

On a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the reality star takes the audience behind the scenes of her Met Gala preparation. For the gala, Kim donned a waist-cinching design by Thierry Mugler, and Kanye West wasn’t a big fan of the look.

Kanye is undergoing a major transformation musically, choosing to focus on gospel music versus rap music and taking his show on the road with his “Sunday Sermon” pop-ups.

Now the Chicago native wants his wife to adjust her appearance to match his spiritual overhaul. Kanye criticized her Met Gala costume, telling the mom of four, “Like the corset, underwear, all that vibe, I just feel like I just went through this transition of being rapper, and lookin’ at all these girls,” he said. “I didn’t realize that that was affecting like my soul and my spirit.”

He also noted that her look is not fitting for “someone that’s married and in love and the father of what’s about to be four kids.”

Kim did not take the criticism without a fight. She explained to her husband that she didn’t need his “negative energy” the night before her big event.

“The night before you’re going to come in here and say you’re not into the corset look? You’re giving me really bad anxiety… I don’t need any more negative energy,” she responded.
“You are my wife and it affects me when pictures are too sexy,” Kanye continued.
Kim clapped back, telling the lyricist, “You built me up to be a sexy person and have confidence! Just because you’re on a journey and your in a transformation, doesn’t mean I’m in the same spot with you.”
Kim’s reaction is understandably confused, considering Kanye was one of the major champions of her sexy image and even participated in how it was perpetuated throughout society. In his 2013 video for “Bound,” he featured his topless wife bouncing on a motorcycle. If this is now going to be his approach to his wife’s career, the duo is going to have a lot to work through.
