Real Talk From Kanye West

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.

Thoughts?

  • Lisa

    Hmm. He’s asking for a lot, but is he able to bring the same or similar qualities to the table?

    Interesting.

  • LM

    I agree with you. Love is not enough. A mate who has something to offer and is loyal is very important. But Lisa brings up a good point – it has to be give and take. One should be at the level he/she is asking his/her potential mate to be.

  • I like this post… Because (I want to bash people, but I won’t) because it makes me think of my preferences in a woman… now mind you I am 22 years of age, so I know as I get older my preferences will evolve… Looking at Kayne’s Resume, I really doubt he will find is SO… (IMHO, but as always I am SO pro-relationships for other people, so I hope Kayne finds what he is looking for…)

    And for the last two women that comment…

    In this dating climate where women outnumber men in America… Kanye West can ask for ANYTHING he wants in a woman & he doesn’t have to be what he asks for… It is CALLED LEVERAGE… Please Jubi, I hope you understand this concept, and I will be pleased to talk about it at length…

    Hmmm… Regardless of my leverage in dating… I still want to be an extraordinary human being, who gives so much to the women I choose to date… So, if I ask something of you, I want to do it with you… I like to keep my hypocrisies at an ALL-TIME LOW…

    I want a woman who is constantly evolving, getting better, maturing…

    Although I have my beauty thresholds (I like my thicky thick women with an A*S like her, http://www.passorsmash.com/post/3650043032/possibly-the-ass-of-2011)

    & T*ts like HER

    But my beauty threshold is very LOW, so I am very forgiving of genetic imperfections…

    – Intelligence/Imagination
    – Can be a teacher & especially a student…
    – Knows how to be a WOMAN first & allow me to be the MAN in the relationship before EVERYTHING, and improves on that everyday
    -Her body count has to stay low, and she has to have HIGH standards on who she lets beat up her p*ssy
    Her Substance to shallow ratio has to be 70:30
    She has to be the type who challenges me to be better, and calls me to the carpet when I am being less than my BEST (you women have that wonderful gift I call MOTIVATION)
    She is PASSIONATE, but she knows how to channel that energy
    She has to be slightly masculine at times, because I am slightly feminine… I want our sexual polarities to sync up well…
    She has to allow me to lead her sexually, because i want to take her to ULTIMATE PLEASURE…
    Like I said she doesn’t have to be genetically perfect… But she has to do the best with what she has, EAT WELL, & EXERCISE…

    I will have a woman who will fit this mold… I have enough of them to choose from

    That is all for now…
