Kim Kardashian has worked hard to legitimize the way she makes cash - some might call her a fame whore for making a living by posing in bikinis and having cameras follow her everywhere, but Kim claims that she's worked hard to turn her name into a brand.
She probably also sees snagging a talented boyfriend as a big boon to her effort to convince everyone that she's not just a shallow, talentless, spoiled, and self-obsessed scourge on humanity.
And dating Kanye West might prove to be one of the smartest moves she's ever made, because the rapper is doing something Kim has never been able to do - he's spinning her sex tape as a great achievement.
Kim Kardashian has made plenty of cash off of the tape, but she still seems extremely ashamed of it and doesn't like to talk about it. However, Yeezy is trying to convince the world that there's nothing wrong with how Kim got famous in his new song "Clique." According to TMZ, here's one of the lines he raps:
"Eat breakfast at Gucci. My girl a superstar all from a home movie."
So instead of shying away from the tape like Kim, Kanye West is actually bragging about it. He even re-labels her sex tape a "movie," which makes it sound a little more artistic.
It seems fairly obvious that Yeezy is referring to Kim and Ray J's recorded romp in the song, but here's another possibility - maybe he was actually referencing her reality show.
Instead of looking at Keeping Up With the Kardashians as trashy reality TV, perhaps Kanye just sees the show as some kind of performance art - to him the series might just be a never-ending "home movie." He could also be claiming that it was a movie because Kim was informed that she has to act if she wants to achieve her dream of getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
But it seems more likely that he was just bragging about Kim banging a guy on camera in "Clique." And if he's that proud of Kim's work, you just know he's tried to convince her to make another sex tape with him. Stay tuned for the sequel to her best-seller.
