Kanye West was recently interviewed for I.D. magazine, and I saw some excerpts on my fave celeb blogs.
I was really feeling a comment Kanye made abt the type of woman he’s looking for.
On the qualities he looks for in a woman?
Integrity. I’m a hopeless romantic and I’m looking and trying to decide who the mother of my child will be. It’s not going to be based off a whim of being in love; she has to bring a certain level to the table. I want to be married, I want that super dope counterpart, that one woman, but she has to be super-fresh, super-smart and not overwhelmed, because being with me is gonna be a job (laughs). She can’t be overwhelmed by her career. I’ll find her, maybe I’ll be 38… maybe I’m not fully who I am yet, maybe that’s why I haven’t found her… The main quality is that you know that this person will ride or die for you. Whether she’s mad at you, whether she’s with you or not, she still loves you, she still bigs you up in any circle. She doesn’t talk down about you to other people. That’s the main thing I need.
I’m feeling that, a lot. That’s some real talk from Kanye right there. Too many people use “love” as the sole barometer to decide who they marry and/or procreate with. You need more! I really loved what Kanye said about being ride or die – too many folks can’t give you that kind of loyalty & can’t even comprehend it. Yall know how much stock I put into being down for someone you truly care about.
Real talk, Kanye basically said he’s gonna get the best woman he can, and as hot as he is, she’s gonna be even hotter. *cue Fabolous’s “Make Me Better”* More people should approach dating/relationships/marriage with that mindset.
