Reality television star Kim Kardashian has finally confessed to Kanye West's impact on her life by admitting the Grammy-winning producer/rapper encouraged her to consider becoming a recording artist.
Initially doubtful, Kardashian claims West influenced her decision to invest in a music career.
"'OK, I'm not a singer, this isn't what I do. I have too much other stuff going on. Is this really something safe for me to do?' " Kim recalled. "And Kanye was actually one of the people who really talked me into doing it and telling me, like, 'Hey, look, what do you guys do for fun? You guys go shopping, you go to the movies. Kind of step into our world for a second and have fun, and we go to the studio.'" (MTV)
Kardashian reportedly recruited West to appear in her Hype Williams-directed music video last December.
Kanye West teamed up with Kim Kardashian and Hype Williams for a music video shoot in L.A. yesterday (December 28) -- but it wasn't for his own album ... it was all for Kim's upcoming single. Sources connected to the video tell us ... Hype -- the most famous music video director on the planet -- spent hours working with Kim and Kanye during a secret closed set shoot. As we previously reported, Kim is working on an entire studio album with super-producer The Dream -- but it's unclear when the world will finally get a chance to hear KK's voice. (TMZ)
Reports of a rumored Kardashian album in the works emerged on the Internet last month.
She has conquered the world of reality television and has established a successful empire of celebrity endorsements, but is Kim Kardashian reaching to far with her latest project? Kim has been in the studio working on a new album. Could Kanye West have a role in Kim's musical collaboration? Khloe Kardashian recently addressed rumors about Kim's intriguing relationship with the "Runaway" singer. "No, they are just friends," Khloe revealed last week while attending the Lakers game in Los Angeles. While there is nothing romantic going on between Kim and Kanye, there is always the possibility that the two stars have a new professional collaboration in the works. (Examiner)
