The rapper’s latest comments about his wife Kim Kardashian are nothing less than we’d expect.

The power couple appear on the September cover of Harper’s Bazaar, with Kanye taking the opportunity in their interview to gush about the mother of his two children.

Kim made headlines earlier this year when she shared a bare-all naked selfie to Instagram, aside from two black censor bars covering her modesty.

Despite celebrities including Bette Midler and Chloe Grace Moretz’s criticising Kim’s sizzling photos, Kanye made it clear that he’ll always support them.

“I love her nude selfies,” he said.

“Like, I love the ones from the side, the back ones, and the front. I just love seeing her naked; I love nudity. And I love beautiful shapes. I feel like it’s almost a Renaissance thing, a painting, a modern version of a painting.”

The Life of Pablo singer even compared Kim’s body to Adele’s voice, saying:  “I think it’s important for Kim to have her figure. To not show it would be like Adele not singing.”

His favourite part of the businesswoman’s body, however, is not what many might expect.

When asked, he simply responded: “My favourite body part of Kim’s: heart.”

Kim went on to admit that she kept the now infamous naked selfie on her phone for “over a year” before posting it.

“I don’t do things to be like, ‘This is powerful. I’m going to show you guys that this is my ‘message.’’ I’m not that type of person. I’m empowered by it, but I’m not doing it specifically to show power.”

“It was more covered up than a bikini!” she said.

The September issue of Harper’s Bazaar will be on sale on August 16.
