Kim Kardashian may never get her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but her boyfriend and rapper Kanye West is speaking out against those standing in her way from becoming a part of the fame monument.
West, the 36-year-old rap mogul, appeared on comedian Jimmy Kimmel's late night talk show Wednesday night where he defended his girlfriend and reality television star Kardashian. While A-list actors appear on the stars that line the sidewalks on Hollywood Boulevard, California native Kardashian, 32, might have been shunned by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce who are in charge of those appearing on the monument.
"I want to give a shout out to the stars at the Walk of Fame cause they said something about how they're not going to put my girl on the walk of Fame cause she's a reality star. It's like people are so dated and not modern," West told Kimmel. "There is no way Kim Kardashian shouldn't have a star on the Walk of Fame. It's ridiculous concepts."
Kardashian previously spoke up about wanting to appear on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in an interview with V Magazine last year.
"I think there was a quote where somebody said that reality stars will never get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame," Kardashian told V. "So, of course I'm so competitive that I think that it would be a huge achievement and a goal that anyone would want. I would love to break that mold."
Kardashian seemed to approve of her boyfriend's most recent rant and accompanied him to the show while staying behind the scenes with their 4-month-old daughter, North West. Still, she took to Twitter to give West's comments her stamp of approval by stating, "This Jimmy Kimmel interview is the truth!"
