When an article in Interview magazine dropped featuring photos of Kanye West and actress Julia Fox on Thursday, Jan. 6, a collective gasp was heard all over social media. The pair were first spotted together on a date in Miami on Jan. 1, after reportedly meeting at his New Year’s Eve party. The first date quickly turned into a second when they flew out to New York City to go watch Jeremy O. Harris’ Tony-nominated Slave Play on Broadway, followed by dinner at Italian restaurant Carbone. A magazine feature after date No. 2, is unusual, but so is everything else West is involved in. The Uncut Gems actress opened up to Interview about their budding romance saying they had “an instant connection” when they met at the party.
“His energy is so fun to be around. He had me and my friends laughing, dancing, and smiling all night,” she shared. “We decided to keep the energy going and fly back to New York City to see Slave Play. Ye’s flight landed at six and the play was at seven and he was there ON TIME. I was impressed. After the play we chose to do dinner at Carbone which is one of my favorite restaurants. Obviously.” The magazine also shared various photos of the pair together that quickly started making the rounds all over social media, and Fox revealed that West made her feel like a Disney princess during their second date: “At the restaurant, Ye directed an entire photoshoot for me while people dined! The whole restaurant loved it and cheered us on while it was happening. After dinner Ye had a surprise for me. I mean, I’m still in shock. Ye had an entire hotel suite full of clothes. It was every girl’s dream come true. It felt like a real Cinderella moment.”
