Last week, in the wake of “Theraflu” and KimYe’s marathon NYC date, Us Weekly ran a breathless story about the seriousness of the relationship, citing a source that said Kanye “thinks [Kim] is his Beyonce.” Those are, of course, very strong words — so strong that Kanye himself has spoken out to deny the specific quote. “There are a lot of media inaccuracies surrounding this past couple of weeks, especially the ‘She’s my Beyonce’ quote. I would never compare anyone to my friend’s wife,” he told the magazine. Sadly, he didn’t go into any further specifics about the relationship, but he did offer a helpful guide to best Gossip Practices when it comes to all things Kanye. “If I don’t say something in a rap or on Twitter, it’s not true.” So DONDA is still real! We believe.
