Kanye West Debuts North West on Kris Jenner's Show, Turns Down 'American Idol' Offer
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's baby North West will make a public debut on Kris Jenner's talk show. Audience members who attended the taping of "Kris" last Monday, August 19 reveal that the first-time father proudly showed off a picture of his little girl during an interview with Kim's mother.
According to TMZ, the photo was flashed on the screen very quickly so that no one could take a picture from the monitor. The baby's photo will reportedly be shown longer when the episode airs.
Of why Kanye decided to share the first look at his baby, a source says, "[Kanye] said he had decided he wanted to show the picture of North because they didn't want to make money on the photo and he is fed up of paps following him around."
An audience member describes how North looks like, "North is very beautiful. She has big cheeks, a lighter complexion than Kanye, but closer to Kanye's color than Kim's. She has straight black hair and almond eyes just like Kim. She has a round face and is really cute." The eyewitness also says "North was lying in a bed on her stomach, she was wearing a dark onesie" in the picture, which doesn't feature any of the parents.
Kanye was also talking about his love to Kim and how fatherhood affected his perspective on some events in recent years. The "Kris" episode featuring the rapper will air this coming Friday on select FOX stations, including in New York, Los Angeles and Dallas.
In other news, Kanye has reportedly turned down an "American Idol" judging gig. "He didn't want to go that mainstream," a source tells Us Weekly why the GOOD Music founder decided to pass on the offer.
The source additionally says that "Idol" producers have met with three other candidates: will.i.am, Sean "P. Diddy" Combs and Rodney Jerkins. However, record producer Dr. Luke is now apparently a strong contender for the third spot in the judging panel after talks with will.i.am were stalled due to money issue.
