Kanye West’s influence must really be getting to Kim Kardashian.

In a recent interview with V Magazine, the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star defended reality TV and compared it to rap music. “I think it’s fascinating, because it’s still entertainment, you know? It’s fun to see the progression of that idea,” said Kim. “I think [reality] is still a new form of entertainment that was kind of an unexpected thing.”

“It reminds me of rap music. When rap music first came out, people were like, ‘We don’t understand this, what is this, it’s just a fad. But rap music is definitely here to stay, and I think reality shows have proven they are as well. But when something is newer, people don’t really understand it.”

The 31-year-old also reveals how ‘Ye has been a motivation, especially in fashion. “Obviously having a stylish boyfriend who has helped introduce me to things and opened up my vision has been an inspiration and has helped me change it up a little bit and become more sophisticated. Being with him, designing and doing things, that’s been motivating to me and has taught me a lot. I’m just thankful.”

She also reveals that her career land makes her the first reality star to land a spot on Hollywood’s prestigious Walk of Fame. “I think there was a quote where somebody said that reality stars will never get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. So, of course I’m so competitive that I think that it would be a huge achievement and a goal that anyone would want. I would love to break that mold.”
