Are Kanye & Kim Trying To Get Baby North On The Cover Of Vogue?
“Look at all of these rumors surroundin’ me every day.” That, ladies was a warning, a disclaimer if you will, that the following information is speculative. But judging by the off-ness that is Kimye, I personally, wouldn’t be surprised if it were true.
So, the story goes that Kanye wants to reveal the first public baby photos of little North West on the cover of Vogue. If you’ve followed Kanye’s career, you know that Kanye is big on fashion and particularly Anna Wintour. The two have been photographed chatting it up on several occasions and he’s even shouted her out in his song “Way Too Cold”:
Dinner with Anna Wintour, racing with Anja Rubik
I told you ma’f**kers it was more than the music
In the projects one day, to Project Runway
We done heard all that loud-A$$ talking, we’re used to it
I’m from where shorties f**ked up, double-cupped up
Might even kill somebody and YouTube it
To whoever think their words affect me is too stupid
And if you can do it better than me, then you do it!
But I digress. A source told RadarOnline that “It’s also pretty well known that Anna is no fan of Kim, or any reality star appearing in the pages of the magazine.”
Kanye wants North to be photographed by a professional photographer and featured on the cover of the magazine than be captured by the paparazzi and plastered all over the blogs. And even many speculate that the couple will release the first pictures of North via Twitter, Kanye is not trying to hear the word “no,” even though Anna has already sent a “less than enthusiastic response.”
He’s not giving up though. Instead, Kanye has been collecting fashion magazine statistics to show that featuring reality stars on the cover can significantly increase sales. (And if this is indeed the case, he wouldn’t be wrong. The April issue of Cosmopolitan, featuring Kim Kardashian, was the magazine’s best selling at 1.2 million copies being snatched from newsstands.
Still it’ll be a hard sell. Perhaps, Kanye is forgetting–or maybe he didn’t know– how Vogue editors conveniently cropped Kim Kardashian out of the Met Ball’s Best Dressed gallery. (They were featuring West but didn’t want to include Kim.)
Alas, all of this could be heresy considering a Vogue spokesperson said “There have been no discussions of putting baby North in Vogue.”
I guess we won’t ever know the truth about this one unless Kanye snags the cover; and since Anna Wintour doesn’t seem the type to compromise, I doubt it’ll happen.
Do you believe this rumor? Do you think it would be a good idea for Vogue to feature baby North and Kim by proxy on the cover?
