One of the hardest parts of any relationship is commitment. After all, it’s not like we’re capable of just shutting off our attraction to other people once we agree to be with one person. Even someone who’s head-over-heels in love can have their head turned from time to time. It could be someone lounging on the beach, or riding the subway train, or even a mutual acquaintance or colleague.
If they’re good-looking enough and you have chemistry with them, it’s only natural that you’ll want to gravitate towards them. It’s something we all go through: but our reaction to these feelings is what separates the cheaters from the faithful. As long as you don’t act on that fleeting feeling of lust, then it’s fair to say that you’re still committed.
However, try explaining that philosophy to an indignant partner. The odds are that they’ll be so furious that you’ve been ogling a stranger or fantasising about a celebrity, they won’t be willing to listen to your excuses. Turns out, this is a problem that affects the rich and famous just as much as the rest of us average Joes. Even Kanye West, happily married to reality TV star Kim Kardashian, is guilty of it, as this hilarious clip shows.
The video, which has gone viral on Twitter this week, shows Kanye and Kim attending a live performance of Rihanna’s. Kim can be seen filming the gig on her smartphone and Kanye can be seen smiling at Rihanna with a beatific smile on his face. But as soon as Kim turns to face him, he suddenly looks very guilty and shifty. The video was captioned: “Kim saw the way Kanye was looking at Rihanna and had to end that snap REAL quick 😭😭.”
Yup; Kanye has just been busted checking out Rihanna. I think he’s going to end up in the doghouse if he’s not careful. On Twitter, fans were quick to poke fun at the situation. One fan wrote “I want someone to look at me the way Kanye looks at Rihanna,” while another said “So only Rihanna and Kanye can make Kanye smile,” and a third person wrote “Who doesn’t look at Rihanna like that?” I have to say, I agree with the latter point. Come on Kim, he’s only human.
A few people were surprised to see Kim making what looked like an Instagram story, after the style icon recently stated in an interview that she was taking an indefinite sabbatical from selfies. In an interview with KTLA, the woman who broke the internet stated: “I don’t take selfies anymore, I don’t really like them anymore. It’s not all about taking selfies, I used to spend too much of my time taking selfies … I would just like to live in real time a little more. I don’t mind pictures, but I’m just not on my phone as much anymore.” I guess it’s just too bad for Kanye that she chose that moment to begin filming. Better luck next time Kanye.
