- She revealed that West sometimes gets “upset” when she posts revealing photos on Instagram.

During a recent appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Kim Kardashian West revealed that Kanye West sometimes gets “upset” when she posts revealing photos on Instagram.
The conversation began when Ellen DeGeneres asked about a photo from August in which Kardashian West seemed to be baking in her underwear.
“That outfit I probably had under sweats – but sometimes you’ve got to do some things for the ‘gram,” the reality-TV star said. “So we do little impromptu photo shoots just for Instagram, but I wasn’t walking around baking like that.”
“‘Cause you could burn yourself,” DeGeneres replied.
“And you can get in trouble with your husband sometimes over too many photos like that,” Kardashian West said.
“You know, it’s like half and half,” she continued. “Because, you know, he always wants me to be me and feel confident, and we’re having fun. But it also bothers him.”
Kardashian West said that she’d continue to post revealing photos when she’s feeling confident, but that she’s affected by her husband’s opinion.
“I go through waves,” she said. “Sometimes I’m like, ‘OK, I’ll be more conservative on my Instagram.’ And then sometimes I really have to get something out if I’m feeling good about myself or I’ve been working out really hard, and then I’ll post something, and then he’ll get upset, and then we’ll just – you know. It’s a cycle.”

Her admission contradicts previous sentiments from West about his wife’s Instagram habit.
When the couple were interviewed for Harper’s Bazaar’s Icons issue in 2015, West said he considers Kardashian West’s nude selfies to be a form of art.
“I love her nude selfies. 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,” he said.
“I feel like it’s almost a Renaissance thing, a painting, a modern version of a painting. I think it’s important for Kim to have her figure. To not show it would be like Adele not singing.”
