Kim Kardashian and PETA mentioned in Kanye West's "Theraflu" have different reactions about the new song. The reality TV star, who gets support in the song from the rapper, shows her love for him in return. Meanwhile, the animal rights organization which becomes his target of mockery fires back at the MC.
In the song, Kanye raps about the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star, "I'll admit, I fell in love with Kim/'Round the same time she fell in love with him/ Well, that's cool, baby girl, do your thang." He then taunts her estranged husband Kris Humphries who plays for Jay-Z's New Jersey Nets by spitting, "Lucky I didn't have Jay drop him from the team."
"I like the song," Kim tells Ann Curry when coming to "Today" show. She, however, denies romance rumors that floated around, "I completely respect and understand that you have to ask these questions, but as I've said before, Kanye and I have been friends for years... You never know what the future holds or where my life will take me."
As for upsetting People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the G.O.O.D Music rapper provokes the animal rights organization by rhyming the lines, "Can't a young n***a get money anymore?/ Tell PETA my mink is draggin' on the floor/ Can I have a bad b***h without no flaws/ Come to meet me without no drawers?"
In response, the organization issues a statement to Wall Street Journal, "What's draggin' on the floor is Kanye's reputation as a man with no empathy for animals or human beings. He's a great musician but doesn't seem to have the fashion sense to design anything more than caveman costumes."
It concludes its criticism, "We keep hoping that one day he'll find his heart and join evolved style icons - including Russell Simmons, Pink, and Natalie Portman - who have dropped animal skins."
