Kim Kardashian says that being with Kanye West has made her value privacy, alone time and how to have some boundaries from the public.
The businesswoman sat down for an interview with Alec Baldwin during The Alec Baldwin Show. She revealed how she used to be before she met Kanye, saying, “I used to…we’d get our hair and makeup done filming…and when we’d be done I was like, ‘What is the hottest restaurant in Hollywood? Where can I go? Where can I be seen? Who’s there? What are they doing? Oh my God! Is my car washed?”
Kim and Kanye started dating in 2012, and Kim said it changed her perspective completely. She explained, “I’d say most of…it started with Kanye, because he lived a more…his work life is very public but then when he was off, he was very private. And I was so…everything had to be public for me back then.”
She also talked about how surprising it was for her when this changed in her life, “Now it’s like, on my time off, I’m like, ‘Where are the locations that I could go eat, go on vacation where no one will see us? All I want is privacy, and I never thought I’d ever be to that point.”
The star also explained that Kanye’s value for privacy and downtime have made her draw boundaries with fans and the public that she did not have before. She explained:
“In a recent interview I was asked what Kanye had taught me that I value the most. I said privacy. I have learned to understand that it’s important to have boundaries, especially when we are having a private date night dinner. So if someone came up to the table at dinner, I used to get up, take pics and sign an autograph in the middle of our meal. Now, I know that this time is our private time, and I absolutely will as soon as I’m done eating! It’s not that he won’t let me sign autographs for my fans… far from it! Just as soon as we’re done! Totally understandable!”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got married in 2014.
