We're all familiar with (and still in awe of) Kim Kardashian's backside selfie, but only now do we know the real story behind the sexy pic.
During a stop on Big Boy's radio show for Power 106, Kanye West revealed that his fiancée asked for his permission before sharing the photo on her Instagram account.
And who would forget West's adorable reaction on Twitter to the seductive pic.
In all caps, the 36-year-old wrote, "HEADING HOME NOW."
The "Can't Tell Me Nothing" singer added that he definitely approved of the photo and was feeling his leading lady's confidence just a few short months after delivering their daughter North West.
So did the rapper actually head home after seeing the pic go viral?
"Practice ended early," he joked on the radio show.
West also explained that he considers himself an artist, and that his leading lady is the epitome of beautyl in his eyes.
He recalled the time when CR editor Carine Roitfeld told him at the engagement party that Kim is in the business of beauty.
"She's talented at being beautiful," he added.
But West doesn't let the public's opinion of Kimye rain on his parade too much.
"This is what's right, and this is what I should be doing," he said firmly.
Later on in the show, he shared a few hints about his forthcoming nuptials and couldn't stop gushing about his future wife.
"I wanted to marry that girl from the first time I saw her," he admitted. "Kim and I are the perfect balance."
