In North’s I-D profile released earlier this week, she professed her goals and career aspirations in following her dad’s footsteps as a rapper, but the 10-year-old also has hoop dreams.
“A basketball player, a rapper, um… Well, when I was seven, I wanted to be a boxer. But now I don’t want to be a boxer,” North said.
“I’m going to do art on the side. When I’m, like, thirteen, I want to walk dogs, to make money to buy art supplies, because everything around here is so expensive.”
North also has an entrepreneurial spirit, with hopes of taking over and running her parents’ lucrative YEEZY and SKIMS businesses one day.
“So a rapper, a basketball player, and I’m going to make artwork that I sell,” she added. “Also, one day I want to own Yeezy and SKIMS, and I want to be a business owner.”
Elsewhere in the interview, North explained that she doesn’t look at basketball as a hobby, but as a lifestyle choice.
“Yes. Going shopping for people,” she said. “Basketball, but it’s not a hobby, it’s a lifestyle. And I just love basketball so much.”
On a recent episode of The Kardashians, Kim Kardashian revealed North prefers to sleep over at Ye’s house rather than her Calabasas mansion.
While many might enjoy the the perks of a private chef or security guard inside a swanky estate, the 10-year-old enjoys the simplicity and normality of life with Kanye since her parents’ divorce.
“North, she’ll go to her dad’s. She’ll be like, ‘Dad, is the best! He has it all figured out. He doesn’t have a nanny, he doesn’t have a chef, he doesn’t have security, he lives in an apartment,’” Kim said.
“She’ll start crying, ‘Why don’t you have an apartment? I can’t believe we don’t have an apartment!’”
One fan responded to the scene by saying they hope Kim Kardashian can understand that it’s about the lifestyle rather than the physical space.
“I don’t think she’s literally upset about the lack of an apartment lol,” she wrote. “She’s upset about the lifestyle. I hope her mom understands that and can address it appropriately.”
