Kanye West's Engagement Ring for Kim Kardashian Sounds as Ridiculous as They Are

kim kardashian kanye westKim Kardashian's never been one to take things slowly. She married Kris Humphries after a few months of dating, then got divorced after a few days of marriage, and now the reality star is reportedly getting ready to be wowed by an engagement ring from Kanye West, after, you guessed it, only four months of dating. Word is that Kanye's scooping up all of his dead mother's jewelry and is trying to reconfigure it into one megalithic rock for Kim. How sweet. Apparently the magical proposal will come when, you know, Kim's divorce is final. Aw.

Say what you will about these two knuckleheads, but I have to admire their love. Oh, no no no no. Not their love for one another, I'm talking about their shared love of all things super shiny and impossibly expensive. The more money it costs, the better!


Kim set the bar pretty high when she bought Kanye a $750,000 Lamborghini for his birthday, which basically blows the $34,000 gold statue he gave Kim right out of the water. To make up for this disgusting disparity, Kanye's allegedly going all out with this engagement ring.

It's going to include his mom's diamond earrings and some of her rubies, the Heart of the Ocean, one or more members of Hanson, six Labrador puppies, an iPad, and Liza Minnelli in a bird cage. Weighing in around two tons, the ring symbolizes their mutual love of material goods and dangerous disregard for privacy or intimacy. It's going to be a real stunner.

Kanye's admitted, via the song "All Falls Down," that he's an insecure guy who tries to impress people with superficial items. Remember? Man I promise, I'm so self conscious, that's why you always see me with at least one of my watches ... Then I spent 400 bucks on this, Just to be like n**** you ain't up on this! Too bad he hasn't grown up since that album dropped in 2004, but hey. Good for him for landing a chic who seems to value gifts just as much as he does.

Sounds like they speak the same love language -- receiving gifts can really be what makes some relationships tick. Maybe these two have a chance, after all.


Do lavish gifts play a part in your relationship?
