Kanye West Denies Calling Kim Kardashian ‘My Beyonce’
Rapper tells Us Weekly, ‘Come on now, that doesn’t even sound like me.’

Kanye West has said and done a lot of crazy things over the years. But there’s one thing that’s “Way Too Cold” even for him: comparing his budding relationship with reality TV staple Kim Kardashian to the long-running romance of good pal and Throne mate Jay-Z with wife Beyoncé.
West, who has kept a near-total media blackout over the past few years, broke that silence on Tuesday (April 17) to US Magazine, to deny ever referring to Kardashian as “my Beyoncé.”
“Of course there are a lot of media inaccuracies surrounding this past couple of weeks, especially the ‘She’s my Beyoncé’ quote,” West, 34, told the magazine. “I would never compare anyone to my friend’s wife.” West’s whirlwind romance with the recently-divorced Kardashian, 31, has been a staple of the tabloid press for the past few weeks and the allegedly fake Bey quote even made its way into a “Saturday Night Live” skit this past weekend.
And while West has not spoken publicly about his sudden love match with his longtime friend and spotlight lover Kardashian has been unusually quiet about her latest celebrity hook-up, Kanye said the overheated hype machine has gotten ahead of itself. “Come on now, that doesn’t even sound like me,” West said about the alleged Beyoncé comparison, which Us originally reported, attributing it to an unnamed source close to the MC. “If I don’t say something in a rap or on Twitter, it’s not true.”
Of course, he has already set his crush to verse in the tune “Way Too Cold” (formerly known as “Theraflu” ), where he rhymes, “I fell in love with Kim around the same time she fell in love with him.”
