KANYE ON FAVORITE BODY PARTS: “Is the face a body part? My favorite body part of Kim’s: heart.”
KIM ON FAVORITE BODY PARTS: “Awww, now I have to say the same. But of my own, I like my upper stomach. I just seem to always have abs. When I’m not really pregnant, I have a great two-pack. [Laughs.] And of Kanye’s? I have to say his heart. And I’ve always loved his legs.”
KANYE ON FAVORITE SONG: “‘All Along the Watchtower.’ The Jimi Hendrix cover.”
KIM ON FAVORITE SONG: “I really like the song ‘Only One’ [West with Paul McCartney].”
KANYE ON HIS FAVORITE TAYLOR SWIFT SONG: “For me? I don’t have one.”
KIM ON HER FAVORITE TAYLOR SWIFT SONG: “I was such a fan of hers.”
KANYE ON HISTORICAL FIGURES THEY IDENTIFY WITH: “Us? Muhammad Ali, Marilyn Monroe–all day. Next question.”
KIM ON INSECURITIES: “I would say looking fat sometimes. I really do take it seriously. I try to do what I can and diet and stay in shape, and it does make me insecure when I’m heavy.”
KANYE ON INSECURITIES: “I used to have insecurity about my finances, then I announced that I had debt, and now I don’t have any insecurities.”
KANYE ON THINKING: “I think about things to put them in a place where I don’t have to think about them anymore. Say if I had a child with a really bad mom, I would have to think more than if I had a child with a good mom. I’m just doing my homework early. I told my trainer today, I’m a mix of a 14-year-old high schooler and a 60-year-old guy. It can never fall into the 30s or the 40s. It has to be 100 percent 60 or 100 percent 14, no in between.”
KANYE ON KIM’S NUDITY: “I love her nude selfies. Like, I love the ones from the side, the back ones, and the front. I just love seeing her naked; I love nudity. And I love beautiful shapes. I feel like it’s almost a Renaissance thing, a painting, a modern version of a painting. I think it’s important for Kim to have her figure. To not show it would be like Adele not singing.”
KIM AND KANYE ON SHOWS THEY BINGE-WATCH: “Empire”
KIM ON KIMYE’S LEGACY: “I’d like to be remembered as someone who was smart in business, works hard, and can be sexy and a mom. A powerful but still sexy, nonconforming woman. And I would hope that Kanye would be remembered for being smart and sticking to what he believes.”
KANYE ON KANYE’S LEGACY: “Determined. I would say my determination is way higher than my smartness.”
