You may or may not be aware of the phenomenon of “code switching” – or changing your manner of speaking (accent, pronunciation, etc) and your mannerisms depending on the people you’re with. This often happens automatically, without the person even thinking about it, and that’s certainly what happened with Kanye West on Kris Jenner‘s talk show (which is airing today, if you’re near TV and want to melt your brain). LOLZ abound.
Kanye chatted to Kris and her audience in a hilarious voice that’s definitely not his own about just how in love he is with Kim Kardashian (still don’t buy it – no one that in love looks that miserable) and his daughter, North, and how he even though he hates paparazzi and the press, he’s with someone whose life revolves around them because she’s his “joy”. Spare me, man. But also, that voice! He sounds like a turtle, and it’s a shame white people need him to talk like that to take him seriously. Newsflash, world: correct and precise enunciation is not a marker of intelligence, nor is accent, the use of colloquialisms, etc. Someday we’ll all get this through our thick skulls.
But that’s neither here nor there. This whole interview is so set-up and full of bullshit that I can smell it from here. What was the point of this scripted nonsense, and what new deal with the devil did Kris have to make in order to even get Kanye to agree to this? What else will he come up with? WHERE’S THE PICTURE OF NORTH?
