Kim Kardashian interviewed by Kanye West in Vogue Arabia’s September issue

DUBAI: Kim Kardashian West is set to make her debut appearance in Vogue Arabia’s September issue, for which she was interviewed by her husband Kanye West.

The reality TV star and makeup mogul spoke to the rapper about her career and her family.

Kardashian, who is currently studying law, said, “there is a misconception that I don’t actually have to study and that I’ve bought my way into getting a law degree – that’s absolutely not true… Being underestimated and over-delivering is my vibe.”

West asked his wife’s opinion on money and fame. “Money was always the goal but I was obsessed with fame, like, embarrassingly obsessed… I do agree that fame can be addictive,” she admits.

When West asked her to pick her favorite sister, Kardashian said “It changes, just like friends or relationships go in and out. I think this year has been a really strong Kim and Khloé year.”

What We Are Reading Today: Trigonometric delights by Eli Maor

Trigonometry has a reputation as a dry, difficult branch of mathematics, a glorified form of geometry complicated by tedious computation. 

In Trigonometric Delights, Eli Maor dispels this view. Rejecting the usual descriptions of sine, cosine, and their trigonometric relatives, he brings the subject to life in a compelling blend of history, biography, and mathematics. 

From the proto-trigonometry of the Egyptian pyramid builders and the first true trigonometry developed by Greek astronomers, to the epicycles and hypocycles of the toy Spirograph, Maor presents 

both a survey of the main elements of trigonometry and a unique account of its vital contribution to science and social growth. 

A tapestry of stories, curiosities, insights, and illustrations, Trigonometric Delights irrevocably changes how we see this essential mathematical discipline.
