Kim Kardashian revealed in a beautiful Instagram post that she was the inspiration behind Kanye West's hit song, "Lost In The World," on the album's 10th Anniversary.


Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have come a long way as one of Hollywood's biggest power couples, with remarkable careers in entertainment. Kardashian's recent Instagram post revealed just how much impact she has had on West's career.

In the post celebrating the 10th anniversary of West's 2010 album, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," Kardashian revealed that she played a huge role as the inspiration behind the lyrics of one of its songs, "Lost In The World."

The 40-year-old shared a photo of her and her husband, 43, along with the birthday card he made for her 30th birthday. The reality star revealed that the content of the card became the lyrics of the hit song.

"Lost In The World," which features Bon Iver, was released in 2010, two years before West started dating Kardashian. The latter shared a series of pictures on Instagram, showing her and West loved-up together, and another picture of the rapper's poem. Kardashian captioned the post:

"Happy 10 year anniversary to Kanye's 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy' album [...] He took the poem he wrote me and made it the song. I keep everything!"


Kardashian's post was well received by her fans who wasted no time pushing the like button more than three million times and left many comments.

One fan said she had been tripping on the post's cuteness since it was shared, while another added that Kardashian and West share an exciting love story. A third fan said she was in awe of the couple.

West went on an emotional anti-abortion rant at his first political rally.


West's love poem turned out to be a hit song while Kardashian was in a relationship with NBA player Kris Humphries. Kardashian and Humphries got married in a well-broadcasted event in August 2011 but split 72 days later in October.

This is not the first time West has mentioned his wife as an inspiration behind his lyrics. On his 2012 track, "Cold," off the album "Cruel Summer," the artist raps about falling for her while she was dating someone else.


After many years of being friends, the Kardashian-West couple started dating in April 2012 while the former was finalizing her divorce from her ex, Humphries.

About a year later, they got engaged on the reality star's 33rd birthday in October 2013 and in 2014, tied the knot in a lavish ceremony with many high profile celebrities in Florence, Italy.


Lately, the couple has seen their relationship hit the wall following West's public rant on social media, where he revealed personal details about his marriage with Kardashian and her family.

West went on an emotional anti-abortion rant at his first political rally and said he and his wife considered aborting their daughter, North. Other shocking details followed on Twitter.


His public outburst did not sit well with the Kardashian clan, which made his wife go public about his mental health. She also asked for privacy as they tried to find their way through.

After much speculation about a divorce between the couple, Kardashian and West have both come out in support of each other and look like they have put their differences behind them to focus on keeping their family together.
