Kim & Kanye

North West Is Non-Directional

Kim Kardashian
and Kanye West were not inspired by a compass when they named their kid North ... fact is, the name's more inspirational than directional.

Sources close to K & K tell TMZ  ... they chose the name North because they see it as a metaphor for "up", telling friends, "What's North of North? Nothing."  Translation ... nothing better.

We're told the duo believes baby North is their highest point together as a couple ... the pinnacle of the relationship ... and they consider her their "North Star."

Kinda sweet. Almost makes ya feel bad for mocking it, right?

Almost.

And the cover-up begins. I don't which is more stupid, the name or the explanation of the name.

BULL. It is the most self indulgent baby name ever - and if Kayne's last name was Jones for example, they wouldn't name her North would they? It was a lame attempt to be "deep" and "intellectual"

Get Real. The reason for the name North sounds more weird with this explanation....
Any reason is not good for this child. What does the North Star have to do with anything? Then you should of named the kid Star ...These 2 arte morons.

The Kardashians are well known for their need for greed. Is there something wrong with the baby?

If "north" stands for "up" and "nothing better", does that mean that people in the South----such as Latin America, Africa, and Asia --- are "down" and "nothing worse"??? The stupidity of these celebrities would be laughable if it didn´t reveal a dreadful prejudice against most of the world.

This family is so FAKE. I cannot stand to watch or see articles on them. It is all about making money in everything they do.

So here's the bright side of this..... At least, for now, they have each other and the rest of the world is safe. Oh forget it. They are both publicity whores.

These people don't need anymore attention and if the magazines want to continue to push these nobody's on us it's time to push back! Hide/Move to back of shelf and absolutely refuse to buy any magazine with Kardashian on the cover.


Enough already....so fed-up of this whole Kardashian nonsense
