Last week the Internet buzzed with gossip, yet again, about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. After publicly convincing Kimmy K to toss out her entire wardrobe so he could turn her into his life-sized paper doll, word on the street was Kanye wasn’t feeling Kimmy’s weight either.
According to the folks over at the gossip rag, OK Magazine, Yeezy allegedly asked his boo to drop 20 pounds so she could be the face of his high-end fashion line.
It wasn’t enough to get Kim to toss her entire wardrobe.
Now Kanye wants his girlfriend to change her body, too — by embarking on the drastic liquid diet Beyoncé used to prepare for her Dreamgirls role.
“He even suggested Kim drop 20 pounds, arguing that Beyoncé has a similar shape and she proved you can get that supermodel body using her lemon juice, cayenne pepper and maple syrup diet,” a source tells OK!.
While I’d respect Yeezy’s concern for Kim’s weight if she were a few biscuits away from popping out of her Roberto Cavallis, according to “sources” Yeezy wants Kim to slim down so she can fit into his clothes, which, she is apparently she’s just too curvy to do.
Though extreme, Kanye’s attitude toward Kim’s weight provides a good example of how some men “suggest” their partners drop a few pounds. Although I don’t knock men who positively encourage their girlfriends and wives to live healthier, hounding your boo and recommending she go on an unhealthy and unsustainable diet just to fit some prescribed notion of what’s sexy is not what’s hot in the streets either.
So, in case you’re dealing with a man who’s more concerned about how you look in your jeans and not how healthy you are, here are 3 reasons to tell him to STFU about your weight:
