Rapper Kanye West has commissioned Andy Warhol's artist cousin, Monica, to paint his fiance Kim Kardashian's portrait.

The late Warhol was famous for capturing the cultural icons of yesteryear on canvas, and West felt it fitting to have a relative oversee his sweetheart's portrait.

Confirming the commission to the New York Post, Warhol says, "She's famous for nothing. Kim is beautiful. She's so manufactured. She looks like a human Barbie."
