West, 36, said reality TV stars shouldn’t be overlooked by mainstream fashion magazines and that Carine Roitfeld got it right when the former French Vogue editor put Kardashian, 33, on the cover of her eponymous CR Fashion Book.
“Carine Roitfeld supports my girl. That’s a breakthrough,” he said during the “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” radio interview.
“There’s a wall of classism that we are breaking through,” he said.
The rapper said he doesn’t care if some people find his comments controversial.
“That’s not my concern,” he said. “My concern is doing God’s work, and he’ll work everything else out.”
But West confessed he had butterflies before popping the question to his “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star girlfriend inside San Francisco’s AT&T Park last week.
“I was nervous. I was talking to her cousin. I was like, ‘I don’t know, what do you think she’s going to say?’ I’m not arrogant about love and feelings at all. I’m confident in the work I put so much work into, but this is someone else’s feelings. You never know what someone else may feel at the time,” he told Seacrest.
“I just knew I wanted her to be my girl for a long time,” he said. “I remember I saw a picture of her and Paris Hilton, and I remember telling my boy, ‘Have you seen that girl Kim Kar-dijon?'”
