Kim Kardashian went on Ellen yesterday with a bunch of our favorite things— new pictures of the excruciatingly adorable North West—and while the episode doesn’t air until later today, Kim revealed that Kanye has some very strong thoughts about North West’s fashion.
That’s to be expected, of course. We’re talking about the guy who when he started dating Kim went through her closet to cull everything he thought was too “ghetto,” (his words, not mine) and reinvent her as a Carine Roitfeld-approved fashion lady. Of course he’s going to have something to say about North West’s Givenchy T-shirts and Alexander Wang onesies. But while he does not mind North West wearing mini versions of designer clothes for grown-ups, he is completely not down with his baby wearing a bikini.
“[Kanye] is a little uncomfortable with North wearing a bikini,” Kardashian told DeGeneres, according to the Daily Mail. “I tried it once and it did not go over well. It has to be a one-piece.”
Babies and children in bikinis is a contentious topic, and a lot of it depends on if a person views bikinis as inherently about being sexy or just as a bathing suit that comes in two pieces. Apparently Kanye is in the former camp.
Another thing Kanye is not down with is diapers.
She told Ellen that Kanye is “not a diaper kind of guy.”
We don’t really know anybody of any gender who would describe themselves as a “diaper kind of person.” Diapers seem like an unpleasant thing a thing a person has to do until the tiny person they have created can take care of it for themselves, but they’re not anybody’s idea of fun.
“He would if it’s an emergency,” she added. “But I love that time. I know it sounds crazy, but I love my time with her when she’s on the changing table. She tries to talk so much and I really enjoy that bonding time when I’m with her.”
Well, maybe Kim Kardashian is a diaper kind of person.
