Kim & Kanye Rejected $4 Million Offer To Reveal Baby North On International Magazine Cover — To Save Mom Kris’ Sinking Talk Show

Below is an excerpt from the story (via ): BEFORE HANNA CHRISTIAN started working for Kanye West, she was a waitress at The Mercer Kitchen. The exclusive restaurant serves as the cornerstone of New York City’s Mercer Hotel, where West and Jay Z camped out in early 2011 to record their album, Watch the Throne. When West returned in October of that same year to take a series of meetings, Christian, then a 21-year-old college dropout and aspiring visual artist, struck up a conversation. For a week, West picked her brain about everything from architecture to fashion to art. He invited her to a Watch the Throne tour stop in New Jersey. She came back to work the next day raving about the elaborate stage design. Noted visual artist Es Devlin (a frequent West collaborator who’s also worked with Lady Gaga and Rihanna) projected video of sharks and Rottweilers onto enormous cubes that doubled as podiums for West and Jay Z during the show. After gushing about the design elements, Christian went for broke. “I love The Mercer,” she blurted out to Kanye. “But I want to work with you!” Christian was hired on the spot as West’s personal assistant. And within 24 hours, she was attending the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show at the Lexington Avenue Armory in NYC. Three months later, he announced his latest venture, DONDA, an experimental design agency named for his late mother.


Not worried about this: Kanye will appear on Kris Jenner’s chatshow on Thursday ‘He didn’t want to lose any street cred. So he turned it down.’ Instead songwriter and record producer Dr Luke, real name Lukasz Gottwald, is in talks to take over the role. If he accepts it he will join Keith Urban, who is returning for his second year as a judge, and Jennifer Lopez, who is poised to make a comeback after a year’s break from the show. And while Kanye felt appearing on American Idol would be bad for his image, his relationship with Kim Kardashian means some publicity is unavoidable. Despite Kanye’s apparent fear of going ‘mainstream’, the 36-year-old will this Friday appear on Kris Jenner’s chatshow. As his girlfriend’s mother Jenner obviously holds a lot of influence over Kanye, which she used to land him as the star of the final episode of her six-week trial chatshow. Kanye will be opening up about his love for Kim, according to Entertainment Weekly.. According to insiders he also shares the first photo of their two-month-old daughter North. If true, snagging North’s first photo will be a huge coup for Kris, who has enlisted her famous daughters to help drum up interest in the show. Meanwhile while West is not keen to rejoin Idol, J Lo looks set to return to the show. Too mainstream: Dr Luke, left, is in talks to join the American Idol panel, alongside Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez, who are already confirmed A source close to the show says her return will be announced this week.
