Being Kanye West seems like it would take up the equivalent of three full-time jobs for the average human being. The multi-hyphenate entertainer has recently been winning over fans with his weekly "Sunday Service" music series, but it was another Sunday showing that had people talking this weekend. West finally gave his first "talking head" interview on the Season 16 premiere of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and claimed he was inspired by the movie The Incredibles.
Here's how Kanye West explained it, in a way that only Kanye West can do it:
This is my first time doing this. I'm not actually attempting to do good. . . . This interview is because of the movie The Incredibles. It starts off with the interviews. The superheroes are giving interviews. The wife got a big butt, and I just see our life becoming more and more like The Incredibles until we can finally fly.
Now, Kanye West had to have some amount of self-awareness at play whenever he was spouting such things to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians camera crew, but it's somewhat difficult to recognize it. Against some better judgment, I may truly believe that West is sitting down to give his first KUWTK testimonial purely because Brad Bird decided to kick off The Incredibles' screenplay with the newsreel footage.
Nothing about this face is disingenuous.
The biggest question here, clearly, is exactly how Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have already been living life like the Parr family from the Disney/Pixar hit. Have they been stopping supervillains when the paparazzi aren't around? Are there any actual moments when the paparazzi aren't around?
Is it just because the Kardashian family has the name "Dash" embedded into their surname? Can Kim somehow manipulate her body like elastic? Is Edna E Mode the true fashion designer behind his Yeezy line? Or do the comparisons truly just start and end with the butt size of Helen "Elastigirl" Parr and Kim Kardashian?
It doesn't exactly look like Kardashian is altogether hyper-impressed by her husband getting so inspired by a 15-year-old animated movie, but then I guess it would take a lot to impress her.
Kim Kardashian is currently pregnant with her and West's fourth child, a boy. In fact, it was on the Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiere episode that the expecting couple announced the big news to the family. At one point, Kim talked with Kylie Jenner about "freaking out" over the pregnancy, and how she didn't wholly think it would happen. She did not, however, say if Kanye has been demanding that the child be called Baby Jack Jack

Now that it's back on the air for an impressive 16th season, Keeping Up with the Kardashians can be found airing on E! every Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. ET. Maybe by the time Season 30 gets here, Kanye West will be hyping up The Incredibles 2, or maybe even setting up a live-action version of the superhero flicks.
