Hallelujah, they've seen the light. Okay, not really, but Kim Kardashian and Kanye West did find a big statue of Jesus this weekend while vacationing in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. They posed in front of the famous Christ the Redeemer statue with their arms stretched out wide, just like Jesus.
They were quite a sight too. Kim was dressed in this bright neon pink dress and yellow heels, which she tweeted a picture of earlier in the day. "Today's Outfit- Hot Pink & Hot Yellow #JuanCarlosObando #Louboutin #Brazil." She posed alone first, then Kanye joined her, and her growing tummy was definitely visible.
I think she looks fantastic, albeit uncomfortable in those shoes for sightseeing. It's a big jump for her as we don't see her in such bright colors that often, but sometimes pregnancy does that -- it just makes you want to show off that bump. Plus it's Rio and Carnival.
Whether there was any symbolic meaning to their pose, I don't know. Some are saying it was offensive to pose like that, which, of course, some are. I'm sure they feel like they're "crucified" by the media and public, but this seems pretty tame compared to Kanye posing as Jesus back in 2006 for Rolling Stone magazine and wearing a crown of thorns back in December. And they're definitely not the first people to pose like this -- you can see others behind them in the pictures doing the same thing.
Mostly I think they just know how to stir up publicity, which is exactly what they did. And it honestly looks like they were just having fun, which is what this trip appears to be about for them. It seems to be a babymoon of sorts. They've been snapped kissing it up all over Rio, and they look happier than ever. She also tweeted out this Keek video this morning saying how blessed she felt to be there in Brazil, and apparently Will Smith is there too -- fun times all around.
Now if they could just get that little matter of her marriage to Kris Humphries settled.
Do you think Kim Kardashian and Kanye West posing like this is offensive?
