Just when we thought he couldn't possibly be any more "out there" -- now RadarOnline is reporting that Kanye West wants Kim Kardashian to be the next Coco Chanel. He's officially lost his mind.
A source says that Kanye truly believes Kim can be the next Coco Chanel if she puts her mind to it. This person also adds that Kim "has spent the past year quietly and secretly educating herself on the subject of ultra-high fashion at Kanye's behest."
Um, when was this "educating" taking place, exactly? Oh, right. In her spare time when she wasn't pimping out her Kardashian Kids line and leisurely strolling through the streets of Paris. (My bad.)
And you gotta hear just one more comment from this alleged insider, because it's way too good to miss. He/she says, "Kanye wants her to focus on becoming a true luxury brand that defines a generation, like famed French fashion designer Coco Chanel -- that's who she is trying to become and that’s who Kanye wants her to become."
Wow. A "true luxury brand that defines a generation" -- is he serious?!?
Some of the stuff from Kim's clothing line so far has been stylish enough -- but how can Kanye for one second truly believe that she has the potential to be on the same playing field with Chanel? I know she managed to land herself on the cover of Vogue and all, but that doesn't exactly make her the next big thing as far as the fashion world is concerned.
Still, I guess it's somewhat endearing that Kanye thinks so highly of Kim and believes in her that much. But what if he's pressuring her to become something we all know she's never going to be? Let's just hope he won't be too hard on her when she doesn't reach these unattainable goals. Why isn't simply being Kim Kardashian good enough for him?
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Yeezus demands a certain level of grandeur that a mere reality TV star is incapable of providing.
Do you think Kim could ever be the next Coco Chanel?
