When you're in a relationship, you learn a lot about your partner, and you may even start to adopt their traits. For example, if they're an extrovert, you might become more socially outgoing. If they're a neat freak, you might become less of a dirty slob. And if they love Insane Clown Posse, you might become a Juggalo, or Juggalette. (Whoop, whoop!) We're all molded by our interactions with others, on a conscious or subconscious level.
Not even Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are immune. After three kids and four years of marriage, they're still crazy in love. Kanye records rants underneath the Chicago train tracks, defending his wife's honor. Kim posts thirsty comments on her husband's Instagram photos, begging him to do 'the sweatpants challenge.' Their relationship just works. And while Kim doesn't wear a MAGA hat and go on batshit crazy rants, she claims that she's changed, since meeting Yeezy.
In an interview on The Alec Baldwin Show, Kim - yeah, that's right. Alec Baldwin has a talk show now. Because if there's one thing we need more of, it's talk show hosted by white dudes. Anyway, Kim told Alec that Kanye changed her perspective on fame, teaching her to value privacy.
"We would get our hair and makeup done after we filmed the show. Then it was like: 'I was like what is the hottest restaurant in Hollywood? Where can I go? Where can I be seen? Who is there? What are they doing? Who is there?' It started with Kanye. His work life is very public, but then when he was off, he was very private... I was - everything had to be public for me back then. Now it's, where can I go on vacation where nobody will see us? All I want is privacy. I never thought that I would be at that point."
Obviously, people are ridiculing Kim for claiming to be a 'private' person. I mean, come on, she's the star of the reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which has ran for fifteen seasons, broadcasting every aspect of her personal and professional life. On Instagram, she promotes her beauty products through posting (almost) nude selfies. And didn't she initially become famous from a sex tape with Ray J? Not exactly J.D. Salinger, is she?
Well, it's easy to mock Kim, since she's a public figure who's constantly hounded by the paparazzi. But at the same time, we never see her go on an emotional Twitter rant, publicly arguing with Kanye over his stupid antics. "She lets him take the lead, and she never disagrees with him publicly," a source told People. "She has decided that's the right move, but she isn't scared to share her disagreements with him behind closed doors." Maybe Kim has become a 'private' person, in her own way. Her episode of The Alec Baldwin Show airs on ABC this Sunday.
It seems like Kanye has changed since meeting Kim, too. For better or for worse.
