The Era of Kimye

Yes, it’s FINALLY happening!  Kanye proposed to Kim yesterday at the AT&T Ballpark in San Francisco.  Kim Kardashian is having a whirlwind of a year- she got divorced, had a baby, and is now engaged…again.  It’s a little backwards if you think about it.

Kim is no stranger to marriage – she’s already had two, so one would think that she’s well aware of the pitfalls of her marriages.  Maybe third time’s a charm.  Looking at her previous marriage, it was easy to spot signs that the marriage was not going to last.  As the audience witnessed, Kris Humphries was not a man of words.  In fact, he probably said a total of 100 words on Keeping Up With the Kardshians.  Most of the time we were watching Kim complain about Kris or yell at him for not paying attention to her.

Lucky for Kim, Kanye seems to be the complete opposite.  He is outspoken and is not afraid to express his feelings – sorry T. Swift.   With Yeezus as his latest album’s title, it is hard to picture Kanye as a humble man.  Although many of us were a little shocked by Kanye’s interview on Jimmy Kimmel – he was spot on about his personality.  He is eccentric, weird, and maybe even a genius. In my head, I imagine when Kanye is feeling extra passionate, he just starts talking in a slam poetry type fashion.  Is that so hard to believe?

Although these two are seasoned players when it comes to being in the limelight, here are my (a single, 21-year old’s)  two cents on their engagement and future marriage.

1.  Don’t go on the Kris Jenner Show – Kanye and North have both already appeared on this show.  Making a second appearance within two months smells a little desperate.  It doesn’t help that the majority of people on the show are all family related.  You’re basically a reality infomercial, but at the end I don’t have the option to buy a $69.95 blender.

2.  Artists are sensitive about their work -As we probably ought to know by now, Kanye is a very unique person – to put it simply, he’s an artist.  Kim better find a happy medium of masking her true feelings when it comes to a song she doesn’t like.  Also, don’t be offended and start crying when you are blocked out by some large studio headphones – it’s part of his job.  Personally, I don’t think Kanye will be going to Kim for musical advice.  Need I remind you that she tried to be a singer and actually came out with a music video? LOOK IT UP.

3. Don’t give your kids weird names – Opps, you already did this…awkward…but seriously, North West?! You couldn’t do better than that?  If you’re caught up on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, you will know that Kim just wanted to name their baby North.  No last name.  Who do you think she is? Cher?

4. Do update your Instagram – Instagram is how I found you guys got engaged, so keep posting because I’ve already started this journey with you and I want to be there every step of the way via technology.  Nothing is too personal.  Nothing.  And don’t think for a second you can get away with posting blurry pictures of your ring.  I know you have professional photographers following you around.  Step yo game up.

Is it weird that I think Kimye are kind of perfect for each other? Yes?  One thing is for sure, the personalities of these two egomanics should lead to a very interesting marriage.
