Kanye West recently explained why he believes his reality television star fiance Kim Kardashian is famous.
"People used to be like, 'What is she talented for?' She is talented at being beautiful," West revealed on Big Boy's Neighborhood on Los Angeles' Power 106 recently. "If you go to a club and it's a bunch of beautiful girls you may say it's a bunch of talent in here."
The 36-year-old rap mogul who proposed to Kardashian on her 33rd birthday explained his theory further.
"Like Karrine Rafald said on my girls birthday; she was the editor of French Vogue now she has her own magazine called SCR, she said 'In my industry beauty is a talent,'" West said on the show.
Kardashian, the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star, defended her line of work in a recent issue of Vogue U.K.
"The biggest misconception about my family and me is that we're lazy. I work hard; the show is a full-time job," Kardashian insisted to Vogue. "Sometimes I don't think people realize that – we work 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. on the program."
Aside from the show, Kardashian insists that she and her family are hard at work on other business ventures.
"People think, 'Well, what do they do,'" Kardashian explained to Vogue. "We do so much, we work on the show, on fragrances, on our fashion line – there's a lot. Also, people have this idea that my mom (Kris Jenner) controls us all and will her book her kids to do anything if it makes money. I am in my thirties – my mom can't tell me what to do."
While A-list actors appear on the stars that line the sidewalks on Hollywood Boulevard, California native Kardashian might have been shunned by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, who is in charge of those appearing on the famed sidewalk.
"I want to give a shout out to the stars at the Walk of Fame because they said something about how they're not going to put my girl on the walk of Fame because she's a reality star. It's like people are so dated and not modern," West told late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel recently. "There is no way Kim Kardashian shouldn't have a star on the Walk of Fame. It's [a] ridiculous concept."
