Get Ready for Kimye!

Posted: December 31, 2012 in celeb, kanye, kardashian, marketing



Move over, Bey/Jay… there’s a new baby coming to town!

What better way to close out 2012 and enter into 2013 than the announcement of a royal pregnancy!  No, not those people overseas, but our local royalty here in the states!  We don’t do the fancy titles and pompous stuff here.  A sex tape and a rap album will put you on Mount Rushmore in the states these days!  So, without further ado, I present to you: Kanye West and Kim Kardashian!

Now, now, just wait.  Hold on.  I know some of you are frowned up and you think that I’m being facetious.  And in a way, I am mostly, but also in a way, I’m not.  You see, royalty is in the eye of the beholder idiot fan.  Some of us treat athletes as royalty.  Some of us treat actors as royalty.  So, why can’t a socialite and rapper be included as well?  After all, all of the above walk on red carpets like kings and queens, don’t they?  They have high-level security and have people following them, 24/7, looking for a photo op.  Sounds like royalty to me!

Kim is rumored to be 3 months pregnant with Kanye’s seed.  So, I’m guessing that she’s known about the pregnancy for a while.  But, what better time to release the news than when everyone in the world, who isnt’ partying or drunk (and some who are), will be tuned into TV to see the “ball drop” for the New Year?  And what story will lead each show tonight?

“Get Ready for Kimye in 2013!”

This is marketing gold!  This is bigger than the season finale of “Scandal” and it will be much bigger than anything Jay-Z and Beyonce’ could have ever imagined for their child.

Wait, wait, wait.  Okay, there you go giving me the side-eye again.  You’re thinking, “Q, you act as if these people planned this.”

Uh, yeah, pretty much.  Look, I’m skeptical by nature.  The reason is: a majority of the people that are on TV or radio are trying to pull the wool over my eyes.  Shows are passing themselves off as reality when it’s a known fact that many are scripted (yeah, I’m talking to you, Tru TV).  “News” media outlets are passing opinions and assumptions as facts.  So, why should I believe that a rapper at the top of his game along with the hottest body in America (who’s still legally married) isn’t doing the same with this announcement?

Personally, I don’t care that Kim is pregnant.  I hope that she has a happy and healthy, bouncing baby boy or girl, but it has no bearing on my life.  In fact, I’m not coming down on her or Kanye at all.  I think they’re geniuses, or at least surround themselves with them.  We’ll hear potential, stupid baby names all night on New Year’s Eve and a few months from now, people will be guessing the baby’s gender.  Maybe that can be centered around some upcoming awards show in the Spring or something.  You know it just won’t be revealed on a Tuesday afternoon on some peron’s Tumblr site.  Some huge event will be going on when that’s revealed, I’m sure.

So, congratulations to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on their child!  Maybe you come up with a creative name, trademark it and add millions to your millions!  I do hope that he or she will at least get their talent from their dad’s side of the family. 

So, Kim and Kanye sitting in a tree… Business decision or just a couple in love who coincidentally revealed it around New Year’s?

“That’s a nice blog post Q made for us, huh?  Just look at it!”
