Kim Kardashian West, the woman who rose to fame after her sex tape was leaked, has announced that she wants to tone down her sexy looks when she turns 40 next year. The reality star and businesswoman once ‘broke the Internet’ with a picture of a champagne glass on her butt, but it looks like we may not see photos like that from her anymore in the near future.
The decision was influenced by her husband, Kanye West, who has turned to a more spiritual path. After the Easter version of his Sunday Service at the second weekend of Coachella earlier this year, the rapper was inspired to pursue a more permanent spiritual path. He has since been running regular Sunday Services and has become “a little more strict,” according to Kim. “He is my husband so I obviously want to honor him and what he’s feeling and he’s been going through this life change.”
Kim is also concerned about her children. She wants to make compromises with her husband about the way that the two raise their four children. ”It’s mostly about the kids. The kids are getting older and he’s very conscious about what we have in the house. We got rid of TV in the kids’ rooms and removed makeup from North’s room,” Kim said on The Real. She also claimed that Kanye has become “very forceful in the imagery that’s in our household and what they see.”
On a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kanye was displeased with the tight-corseted Thierry Mugler gown Kim wore to the Met Gala. Kanye argued that a corset is a “form of underwear” and it was affecting his soul and his spirit. Kim told him she had “really bad anxiety” and didn’t want anymore “negative energy”. “Just because you’re on a journey and transformation doesn’t mean I’m in the same spot with you,” she told him.
Kim previously said that she felt empowered by Kanye and that he loves her “unconditionally”. In response to backlash for sharing nude photos on social media, she added, “I am empowered by my body. I am empowered by my sexuality. I am empowered by feeling comfortable in my skin. The body-shaming and slut-shaming – it’s like, enough is enough. I will not live my life dictated by the issues you have with my sexuality. You be you and let me be me.”
Whether it’s her husband or her children influencing her decision, the Kim that once said she’d take nude photos until the day she dies is no more. It’s unclear whether her thoughts on female empowerment have changed or she’s just ‘compromising’ with Kanye.
