Thanks To Kanye, North West Is The Real Life ‘Picasso Baby’
Kanye’s sweet tweets to Kim Kardashian were just the tip of the mushy iceberg on her birthday. Keeping with his creative gift streak, the rapper tapped into their daughter North West’s budding artistry for his gift to his wife this year. While at Tao in Las Vegas for her annual celebration (where she earned a whopping $500K), Mrs. West shared that Yeezy gave her a Hermes bag, handpainted by their one-year-old.
“Kanye had a box [with an Hermes purse in it] and I opened it up and it was all painted really cool and on my computer was this message that said ‘Play’ and it was a video of my daughter sitting outside painting the purse,” she told Us Magazine. “I had thought it was this new artist who had painted this purse [but] it was my daughter. It was amazing.”
And while Kanye might be turning down millions of dollars for gigs, his other offering to his wife proved that he’s not opposed to the simple life. Kim also revealed that she balled out at The Gap with her husband, copping sweaters for further art projects.
“Kanye took me away for 24 hours and was like, ‘What do I get the girl that has so much?’ Sleep and no paparazzi and shopping at The Gap,” Kardashian added of her big day. “We spent two hours shopping at The Gap and we haven’t been there in years. We bought creme sweaters — we bought like five of them and we’re going to reconstruct them and make things out of them.”
