This Photo Of Kanye And North West Sleeping Should Be Cute, But It’s Mostly Creepy

If I told you a photo existed of Kanye West and his baby daughter North West asleep side by side in matching gray clothes, you might imagine it to be pretty adorable. Even if you don’t like Kanye, it’s still a sleeping baby and her dad, so in theory it should be sweet. Well, it turns out that photo does exist, and while plenty of Kim Kardashian’s Instagram followers think it’s totes adorbs, I’m rather creeped out by it.

Kim captioned the photo, “This is what life is about! Our baby girl turned 1 today! We played so hard they passed out while we were watching the game! Happy Father’s Day to the best daddy in the world! The way you love our daughter and protect her makes me filled with so much love! #BestDayEver #Twins #HappyFathersDay #HappyBirthday.” Wow, that’s a lot of explanation for one little photo of a dad and daughter asleep together. Anybody else think the Kardashian doth protest too much? That perhaps she added all those details about falling asleep during the game to convince us that this photo wasn’t at all staged?

Because if you ask me, it totally was. Okay, so I can buy that North’s really asleep, since babies have a tendency to do that and it would be hard to train a one-year-old to play dead on command. And I say “play dead” because, although I hate to be morbid, the only thing I could think of when I glimpsed this photo is that old Victorian custom of posing corpses for photographs. Why is Kanye so stiff? That is the face of either a dead person or a wax figure. Or someone whose wife just hissed at him to throw on his best gray T-shirt and pose with his arm awkwardly around their daughter before she wakes up so they could get an adorable Instagram photo op.

But either way, happy birthday, North! Only seventeen more of these to go before you’re free of these people. But when that happens, run as fast as you can away from Kris Jenner, since she’ll be coming for you with a mud flap dress and a modeling contract.

      I’m going to agree with you on the staged thing…Kanye’s head position looks so uncomfortable.

        And look how his hand is grasping onto the baby. Too stiff to be asleep. What a couple of assholes.

      They try so hard it comes across as fake. Kanye is posing as if he was asleep but North is really asleep. The explanation was way to long making it sound fake. FAKE, FAKE, FAKE!

      The best revenge North can exact on her superficial shallow parents is to join the Peace Corps at 18 and spend the next ten years building wells in Uganda.

      He does look oddly stiff. I didn’t notice it the last time I saw this pic. That is one freaking adorable baby though.

      Are you joking? Is this seriously worthy of a blog post? I’m far from a kimye fan, but seriously…? Creepy???? How is this creepy????
      Also, whomever says he isn’t asleep because of his head position is stupid. 1. Parents of young kids are f’ing exhausted like all the time. They can fall asleep anywhere. Lol.
      2. Some people actually sleep sitting up,ily my bf who has a nasal problem&vertigo that forces him to sleep upright.

      This blog post is honestly so stupid !!!! I used to come this site a lot but now all of the articles are so weird all of them seem like they are written by fat girls that analyze every little thing celebrities do to make them into stories really cannot believe this is an actual website !! More like a blog to vent about how all u do is get CREEPED out by a kanye photo ?! And then to analyze her caption !! LOL it was Father’s Day so she wrote about how she felt as him As a father I don’t see how that is creepy or weird at all ? I say u all quit your jobs and interact with people and the real work way more so that you are not wasting time writing about how u think a sweet photo is CREEPY … Which by the way is very rude and makes u seem strange !
