“I do agree that fame can be addictive and it took me a long time to recognize how lost you can become when you put too much focus on it. Before, I was obsessed with fame, like, embarrassingly obsessed, but my focus has shifted.” @kimkardashian opens up in her most honest interview to date as she stars on her first-ever #voguearabia cover. Interviewed by husband #kanyewest and art directed by Manfred Thierry Mugler, the debut offers an intriguing glimpse into the surreal world of the entrepreneur and reality TV queen.

Recalling their first date, Kardashian tells West, “I was like, Damn, why did I waste so much time and energy? Why didn’t I do this sooner?”
The 38-year-old also talks about the lessons she’s learned from life in the spotlight.
“I try to be a good person and to take my mistakes and make them into a better experience — to learn and grow from them and move on,” she says.
Kardashian also pushed back on some of the criticism she’s received for pursuing a law degree in order to fight criminal injustice.
“There is a misconception that I don’t actually have to study and that I’ve bought my way into getting a law degree — that’s absolutely not true,” she says. “Being underestimated and over-delivering is my vibe.”
West also asks his wife how she handles negative reports about her in the press. “When it’s about my family, I get really protective,” she admits. “Most of the time when things are so baseless or absurd, I have a good laugh. But as far as dealing with it on a daily level for me, I’m pretty content. If it’s about you, or the kids, or my sisters, I can get worked up when I read things that are false or negative. But when it’s about me, I’ve learned how to block out the noise for the most part.”
In addition, West asks Kardashian what she thought of him the first time they met. “This was before you released your first album and you were known as a music producer,” she recalls. “I was really shy. You thought I was Brandy’s assistant, which I wasn’t. Ever since you said that, it’s everywhere… like ‘Kim is Brandy’s assistant.” I was her friend and stylist [laughs]. I thought you were attractive, nice, very charming, really funny, powerful — I was in awe of you, but I was really shy, quiet, and a little nervous, to be honest.”
