Kim Kardashian Reveals North Wants A YouTube Channel — But Kanye West Is Totally Against The Idea!

Is North West gearing up to be the next big thing on YouTube?? According to the four-year-old's momma, Kim Kardashian West, the youngster is eager to launch her own channel on YouTube. However, it appears as though poppa Kanye West isn't too keen on the idea. Related: Kim K. Confirms Baby #3 Is A Girl Apparently, Nori has [...] Is North West gearing up to be the next big thing on YouTube?? According to the four-year-old's momma, Kim Kardashian West, the youngster is eager to launch her own channel on YouTube. However, it appears as though poppa Kanye West isn't too keen on the idea. Related: Kim K. Confirms Baby #3 Is A Girl Apparently, Nori has been checking out makeup tutorials on the video sharing site and is ready to join in on the fun. Mrs. West explained to Women's Wear Daily: "The other day, it was so funny. My daughter watches so many YouTube tutorials and videos. She was unboxing the My Little Pony ColorPop collection, and I thought to myself, 'I wish I was recording this,' because her reaction was so funny. And then she did makeup on the My Little Pony that they gave and she said, 'Mom, I want to do a YouTube video.'" Sadly, Yeezus is NOT on board with the idea and Kimmie also expressed her concerns about exposing North to the world via social media. She continued: "I don't know if it's something she would really want to do ... but it's always a struggle on how much you want to have exposed or how much access you want them to have to social media." Apparently, as a compromise, they've allowed North to create some tutorials for her family's eyes only. In regards to North's potential social media stardom, Keeks shared: "In the world we live in today, I don't think you ask someone young growing up to not be on social media - that's just cruel. That's like asking [someone] to not communicate." Still, we think the oldest West child should wait a few years before getting online. We mean, there are A LOT of creeps out there. Regardless, this isn't the first time Kim has controlled how a family member uses social media. Per Kardashian West, she used to log into Kendall and Kylie Jenner's accounts in order to keep tabs on them. She dished: "I remember when Kendall and Kylie were growing up. We were so freaked out and we always had their passwords and we would always go check their accounts, and I mean, they were really little. I don't know if they knew we knew." Sneaky, sneaky!! Hopefully Kimye will allow North to be a kid a bit longer, before thrusting the tot into the limelight further. *Sigh* [Image via Instagram/WENN.].....»»
