Kanye shared his thoughts with his wife the night before the event.
Kanye appeared on the Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode on Sunday, October 13, which chronicled Kim and the family getting ready for the Met Gala 2019, which took place in May. The rapper expressed his dislike for his wife's choice of dress. Kim told her husband that she had been dealing with anxiety about the big day and about the dress and she didn't appreciate his attitude. "So the night before the Met, you're gonna come in here and say that you're not into a corset bust?" Kim asked. "I don't need any more negative energy for you to now say that you're not into me in a tight dress."
Kim pulled off the entire look so well.
Even though Kim pulled off the look so flawlessly, she had unknowingly faced opposition from her husband. "You are my wife, and it affects me when pictures are too sexy," he said to his wife in a clip from the show. Kim seemed upset by his remarks and reminded him that it was he who encouraged her to show off her sexier side. "You built me up to be this sexy person and confidence and all this stuff," she told him. "And just because you're on a journey and you're on a transformation doesn't mean that I'm in the same spot with you."
Kanye stormed out of the room and Kim added: "That's absolutely ridiculous."
The rapper seemed to have changed his mind about his wife being a "sex symbol."
As much as Kanye used to encourage and support his wife's sexiness and defend those who looked down on her, saying that dating someone like her would ruin his music career, he seems to have had a change of heart. "I just made this transition from being a rapper, looking at all these girls, looking at my wife," he said on the show. "Like, 'Oh, my girl needs to be like the other girls, showing her body off.' I didn't realize that that was affecting my soul and my spirit as someone that's married and loved, and the father of now, what--about to be four kids? A corset is like a form of underwear. It's hot. It's like, it's hot for who, though?"
