I have to admit, when I saw the news a couple days ago that Kanye West write his song “Perfect Bitch” about Kim Kardashian, my first reaction was not, “How sweet.” I don’t care what adjective you put in front of it, I’ll never take the b-word as a compliment. Maybe that’s just me.
I guess it’s definitely not offensive to Kim K, because she tweeted that she was flattered, or some such nonsense.
So it goes in another day of the most attention-seeking attention-seekers that ever did attention-seek. (I was going to say that with fame-whoring but it seemed like overkill.)
The funniest part about this whole non-controversy is that apparently Kris Jenner isn’t thrilled with it. First baby Penelope gets a month off on her family promotional duties and now Kris isn’t happy with a well-publicized Twitter exchange? The momager is losing her touch.
Now, it’s just a rumor from a source who probably has the last name Kardashian or Jenner, but according to TV New Zealand, Kris isn’t happy with Kanye’s little love song. “Kris told Kim to get a grip, saying no woman should be called such a term,” the story goes. And when you think about normal mothers, the situation even sounds plausible.
I’m pretty sure that my mom would’ve been less than thrilled about my boyfriend ever referring to me as a bitch, perfect or otherwise. But Kris Jenner is not a normal mother. And my mom would probably be really embarrassed if the two had anything in common aside from their aversion to taking derogatory names for females as compliments.
Well, we never thought we’d see the day when we agreed with Kris Jenner. We’re sure it won’t happen again for a while, so we should all hold hands and sing Kumbaya now. But really, we’re with you on this one Kris. That “term” is not a compliment and it should never be used to describe women.
Back to the drawing board Kanye. I’m sure you can come up with another song for your perfect girlfriend. Third time’s a charm.
