Kim Kardashian’s relationship history is chequered with short lived flings and even briefer marriages. But it seems she thinks hip hop superstar Kanye West is ‘the one’ – and has been busy plotting spending the rest of their lives together.
In a new interview the 31-year-old revealed that she sees them both at 80, sitting together talking. ‘When this whole life is done, and it’s just the two of us sitting somewhere when we’re 80, you want to have things to talk about that you have in common,’ she told New York magazine.
‘I think that’s something maybe I didn’t value as highly as a quality I cared about in someone.’ The ‘things’ that the pair have in common include their shared passion for fashion, which last week saw Kanye present Kim with a $6,000 pair of shoes he had designed, decorated with strands of pearls.
She explained: ‘If I have a design meeting, or he has one, we come back and talk about how our meetings went. It’s cool, because you can definitely get more in-depth with someone who actually knows what you’re talking about. ‘So that’s been a fun similarity we have.
I think it’s essential to have similarities.’ Kim also revealed that since her 30th birthday she had started drinking, having previously refused all alcohol. She claimed she needed to ‘lighten up’. Despite her high-profile, Kim insists her goals don’t centre around fame, but she is focused on building and bettering her business empire.
She added: ‘I don’t really have goals as far as, I want to be on a cover or something like that. ‘I think my goals are more just expanding my line, and having my line be really successful. That’s the ultimate goal, I think, for me. ‘I don’t say, “Oh, I want to be on this magazine or I want to do this.” It’s all fun. ‘And I love, definitely, turning into a different character. I think each shoot has a different personality.’
New York magazine also gave readers an insight into Kim and Kanye’s relationship after they published Kim’s half of a conversation between the lovers. ‘Hello? Hey. Just leaving the zoo. I’m finished with my shoot and I’m just finishing up. I’m heading actually to your place right now. ‘Where are you? Okay. So maybe I’ll go in and change and then I’ll eat… What time is that at? Seven? Will you be done?… Okay, so, that’s an hour.
‘So I’ll just wait at the place. Will you come get me? Okay, well, I don’t have a car. Do you want me to just take a cab? Or can your car come get me first?… ‘Where is ‘up here’? Is it far? Okay, well, um, maybe…’ The conversation continues until Kim ends with a ‘Love you, too. Bye.’ Before Kim and Kanye can commit to one another, however, there is the little matter of her divorce from her second husband Kris Humphries, following their 72-day marriage.
