Kanye West Must Really Love Kim Kardashian if He's Revealing North's Photo on 'Kris'

The rapper, who turned down an offer to judge American Idol because he didn't want to lose street cred, will appear on Kris Jenner's talk show on Friday

Want to see a picture of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby? You'll have to go through her grandma first! The first public photo of two-month-old North will be unveiled on Kris Jenner's talk show on Friday. We couldn't imagine a better ratings booster for the Kris season finale, besides having an interview with Kanye West. Oh, that's right -- she got him too! And actually, the reclusive rapper claims it was his decision to show the baby picture.

"[Kanye] said he had decided he wanted to show the picture of North because they didn't want to make money on the photo and he is fed up of paps following him around," a source who watched the taping of the show told E! News. (Side note: We can't wait to watch Kris Jenner's eyelid twitch when Kanye says the words "I didn't want to make money on the photo.")

In addition to showing off his baby pics, Kanye reportedly told Kris that he was in love with Kim "from the moment he met her," and that he "always wanted to be with her" because they're "the perfect match." That's so sweet! Even if we still have no idea what they have in common!

While we're on the subject of Kanye, we just learned something amazing: He rejected the offer to be an American Idol judge.

"He didn't want to go that mainstream," a source told Us Weekly. "He didn't want to lose any street cred. So he turned it down."

First of all, this is heartbreaking, because Kanye West would be the most amazing Idol judge ever. ("Imma let you finish, but -- wait, no. I'm not gonna let you finish. That was terrible! Leave this room, now!")

Secondly, he didn't want to "go mainstream"? What does he think Keeping Up with the Kardashians is, an art house film? Maybe he's in denial -- or maybe street cred is a small price to pay for true love.
