Kanye West says his wife Kim Kardashian’s show Keeping Up With the Kardashians should have won a truckload of Emmys by now, but that has not happened thanks to the entertainment industry not respecting reality television.
In an interview with SHOWStudio, the rapper said, ‘I feel proud to be in a family that has, you know, so many people breaking ground for the generations to come.’ He went on to praise KUWTK, hailing it as ‘so f**** new of an art form’ and declaring that ‘my wife and my family should’ve had plenty of Emmys by now.’
West then went on to complain about how many award shows have refused to recognize KUWTK despite its popularity, saying, ‘Reality shows are considered to be like rap was when the Mondrian [hotel in L.A.] wouldn’t let Run DMC and motherf*** Will Smith stay there because they were rappers … [I don’t get] the idea of a reality star not being allowed into a fashion show or not being nominated for their show, even if it’s the longest running and the most popular and… everybody I know watches it.’
