Kanye West had a major year musically, with his Jay-Z collaboration album, Watch the Throne, hitting the top of the charts, but he also made waves with his relationship with Kim Kardashian. The pair first started getting romantic in the Spring, and since then, they've spent time in NYC and in Europe, where Kanye has been touring.
Kanye also continued to explore his passion for clothing, showing at Paris Fashion Week to overall negative critical reviews. Despite the poor reception, Kanye says he plans to keep designing. He also released a pair of one-off sneakers for Nike and presented a short film, Cruel Summer, out of competition during the Cannes Film Festival.
