In a newly released clip in the Kris Jenner Show, Kanye West showed a side few has ever seen. West spoke of his love for Kim Kardashian and his new baby, North.
“I could have people say, ‘This is going to damage your credibility as an artist or designer.’ And I say, you know, I don’t care, I love this woman,” he said. “I love this person. She’s worth it to me.”
Jenner, who just happens to be Kim Kardashian’s mother, listened approvingly.
But what has everyone talking today is not what Kanye said in expressing his love for Kim, no, it is how he said it. More specifically, how he sounded saying it.
Some call it the job interview voice. A way that society expects minorities to act and conduct themselves when talking to a white person. In the black community, it’s called using your white voice or talking white.
Kanye mastered that voice in this interview.
Someone texted me today to tell me to check out the interview and to quote what they said, West didn’t just sound white, he sounds “like a white girl!”
