A Brief History Of Kanye West Being Really, Really Excited To Date Kim Kardashian

Kimye has officially been together since that fateful night in April 2012, when they left Scott Disick's New York City restaurant holding hands. Following that crucial milestone, they have created a human life, gotten engaged and -- most important -- appeared on the cover of Vogue. And despite all that, Kanye continues to be no less than really, really excited about the fact that he gets to be in a relationship with Kim Kardashian. Now, in honor of the two-year anniversary of the pillar of culture that is the #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple, we bring you a brief history of Kanye explaining why Kim is the greatest partner of all time.


On Kim's Awesomeness:

"Stop everything you’re doing now / Because baby, you’re awesome, Don’t let nobody get you down / Because you’re awesome / You don’t need to listen to your manager / You must be tired of running through my mind / Can I come inside? … I’m also awesome … / I’d rather do nothing with you / than something with somebody new/ Because baby you’re awesome.” -- singing at the Met Gala, May 2013

It’s an unfair level of awesomeness in one person to be that smart, to be that nice to be ... blatantly fine as hell. Like, one of the most beautiful people of all time." -- radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, October 2013

On Kim's Talent(s):

"In my industry, beauty is a talent. You know, 'What is she talented at?' She’s talented at being beautiful.” -- radio interview with Power 106, October 2013

Okay, ladies and gentlemen, all barber shops, fashion designers, architects, corner stores, Wall Street, all over the world: y’all acting like this ain’t the most beautiful woman of all time! I’m talkin’, like, arguably of human existence -- the top 10 of human existence.” -- radio interview with Angie Martinez on Hot 97, November 2013

"Nobody can tell my girl what to do. She just needed to be given some platforms of information to work from. One beautiful thing is that as she discovers it, the world discovers it. For her to take that risk in front of the world, it just shows you how much she loves me. And how much she actually loves the opportunity to learn. You got, like, a million companies saying, 'This is impacting your brand! This is impacting your fans! And blah blah blah.' But she still sees this light of beauty." -- W magazine, June 2013

On Kim's Extensive Influence:

"There's no way a Kim Kardashian shouldn't have a star on the [Hollywood] Walk of Fame. Everyone is so dated and old-fashioned." -- "Jimmy Kimmel Live," October 2013

"There's no way Kim Kardashian shouldn't be on the cover of Vogue. She's like the most intriguing woman right now. She's got Barbara Walters calling her like every day ... and collectively we're the most influential with clothing. No one is looking at what [President] Obama is wearing. Michelle Obama cannot Instagram a pic like what my girl Instagrammed the other day." -- radio interview with Ryan Seacrest, October 2013

Kate Upton ain’t Marilyn Monroe. Kim is Marilyn Monroe, you know that. She was controversial. She is controversial.” -- radio interview with New York Power 105.1, referencing the most recent issue of Vanity Fair, November 2013

On Sports:

"There's times when I wasn't with [Kim], I wanted to be with her so bad I thought about taking up sports." -– interview with Kris Jenner on "Kris," August 2013

"And I fell in love with Kim / Around the same time she fell in love with him / Well that's cool baby girl, do your thing / Lucky I ain't had Jay drop him from the team." -- lyrics from "Cold," released April, 2012

On Love At First Sight:

I was in love with her before I was ever able to talk with her.” -- interview with Kris Jenner on "Kris," August 2013

I loved her from the first day I saw her, which I said on ‘Bound’ ... I remember seeing pictures of her and Paris Hilton in Australia, and I came to Don C., and I was like, ‘Man, have you ever seen Kim Kardishawn? What’s up with Kim Kardishawn?’" -- radio interview with Angie Martinez on Hot 97, deliberately mispronouncing "Kardashian," November 2013

On Love As It Develops After First Sight:

"I felt like our love story is like, a love story for the ages. I felt like when we first got together, it was like a Romeo and Juliet kind of thing, where it’s like … she’s a reality star, and I’m a rapper." -- radio interview with Angie Martinez on Hot 97, November 2013

"Kim is like a fantasy, period. She's like a dream girl. And I think a dream girl should live in a dream world." -- Vogue, March 2014

On Kim's General Wife-ability:

She gave me everything. She gave me a family. She gave me a support system. She was in a powerful enough situation where she could love me without asking me for money, which is really hard for me to find." - BBC, September 2013

“Hey, you remember where we first met? / Okay, I don’t remember where we first met / But hey, admitting is the first step / Maybe we could still make it to the church steps.” -- lyrics from "Bound 2," released August 2013

"You the number one trophy wife / So it's only right to live the trophy life / You grew up on J. Lo, Timberlands by Manolo now / Till one day I put an angel in your ultra sound / I wanna dip that ass in gold, I wanna dip that ass in gold." -- lyrics from a verse in Future's "I Won," released April 2014
