Kanye West has made it VERY clear that he thinks Kim Kardashian is the modern day Marilyn Monroe!
And he may have become SO fixated on the concept that he allegedly commissioned a Warhol portrait of his future wifey, just like Marilyn's!! There’s only one problem — Andy Warhol died in the ‘80s.
Thankfully, Yeezus found the next best thing: Andy Warhol’s cousin, Monica Warhol, who uses the same process Andy did by making screen-prints of photographs.
Despite never meeting her famous relative, Monica thinks that if Andy were still alive today he’d LOVE to do a portrait of Kimmy! She explained:
“She’s an icon. She’s famous for nothing. Andy would have loved her. Kim is beautiful. She’s so manufactured. She looks like a human Barbie. I never studied Andy. I never owned a book about him until about a year ago.”
That's a lot of assumptions for someone who's never met OR studied the man, but maybe she can feel it in her blood!!
Additionally, while initial reports say that Yeezy commissioned the piece for a hefty sum, Kim Kardashian's reps are denying that Yeezy paid for the work.
