Kanye West Talks Fatherhood, Kim Kardashian, Paparazzi + More on Kris Jenner Show [Video]
In the clip, the rapper-producer reveals his softer side unlike what we have normally seen him in the past.
West opens up about his relationship with his boo Kim Kardashian, being a father and working on being a better person. And yes, Kimye’s beautiful baby North West also makes her debut.
We have to admit we were taken aback when he mentioned that he is a very shy person.
“When I’m just walking down the street I’m a bit more shy and nervous,” he explained. “It doesn’t come off when I’m rapping. When I’m rapping I’m in my [zone], like I’m on the court or in the ring. That’s when I’m at my most powerful.”
Among Kanye West quotes in the interview:
On romanticizing his boo Kim:
“I’m definitely romantic. Because I’m an artist. And I like surprises. I love for someone to be surprise and sweep someone off their feet.”
On bettering himself:
“I have improvements that I need to make as a human being. The way that I talk to people, being too sharp with people or being too edgy. As a creative guy, sometimes it’s hard for me to small talk. It’s hard for me to ask what the weather is like. That’s something that your family and Kim, she’s definitely teaching me and helping me be a better person.”
On President Obama’s remarks about them as celebrities:
“Obama basically said we’re the new American Dream. I think he was posing it as I was supposed to take it in a negative way. But I just feel really happy that the president mentions me so often. Thank you very much, Obama.”
On what fatherhood taught him about the Taylor Swift VMAs fiasco:
“The last thing I would want to happen to my daughter is some crazy drunk black guy in a leather shirt to come up and cut her off at an awards show. That’s the last thing I’d want.”
His goal as a father for Baby North:
“The thing I think about as a dad is protection. That’s my only goal is to protect by daughter. To give my daughter as many opportunities to be a child.”
On who Baby North resembles:
“I pray that she looks like her mother when she’s older.”
