West and his fiancé Kim Kardashian visited Hot 97 for an interview. Kanye said of the first time he saw Kim, "I loved her from the first day I saw her, which I said on Bound, I don't remember when that was. I remember seeing pictures of her and Paris Hilton in Australia and I came to [Kanye's manager] Don C. and I was like, 'Man, have you ever seen Kim 'Kardi-shawn?'"
Kanye said later, "Our love story's a love story for the ages. I felt like when we first got together, it was like a Romeo and Juliet kinda thing where it's like she's a reality star and I'm a rapper…"
The rapper then insisted he was engaged to the most beautiful woman, possibly of all-time. "Y'all acting like this ain't the most beautiful woman of all time! I'm talkin' like arguably of human existence—the top 10 of human existence."
