Kanye West Shows Softer Side in Kris Jenner Interview

Kanye West

Kanye West has shied from the press, but he granted a rare interview to the mother of his girlfriend, Kris Jenner, on Friday’s finale of her talk show. During the hour-long episode, the controversial rapper showed the world another side to him as a loving, family man.

In addition to unveiling the first photo of his two-month-old daughter North West, he spoke about his love for Kim Kardashian (“I was in love with her before I even got to talk to her”), his relationship with the media, President Obama, and what fatherhood has taught him.

But when Kris called him “the softest, sweetest,” he responded, “Please don’t call me soft as a rapper.”

See Kanye let down his guard during the candid conversation.

On seeing Kim for the first time: “I remember seeing pictures of her in Australia with Paris Hilton and reading her name and telling my friends, ‘Man, have you ever seen Kim Kardijan?’”

On living with the Kardashians: “It’s interesting. Just as a creative guy, I would have my apartment in New York and just be a bachelor. The apartment was super minimal, like one plant. And here it’s something everywhere at all times. It’s noise at all times happening. I wasn’t used to it, and now when I’m out, you know, I try to get home early, just to be around my family.”

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 what fatherhood taught him about the Taylor Swift incident: “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.”

On President Obama’s remarks about him and Kim: “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 who North looks like: “I pray that she looks like her mother when she’s older.”

    Lol I cant believe the comments. Sorry guys that Kanye isn’t an uneducated gangbanger and didn’t come on there sounding like a hood ass nigga. The man is growing up and has a family now. Those things change you. All kanye wants to do is live his life and make art. If you want to delete all his songs then suck several penises and go tell someone who cares and continue listening to cheif keef and be on with it. And for you guys saying its fake and forced. ..try living with someone for a couple of months and try to interview them..see if it isint weird plus you know he hates doing interviews anyway.

    Not a single Kardashian woman has ever married a black man for love. Not one! It is all about the black man’s money, and the white man’s love with them. Think about it.

    They take the black man’s money and provides for the white man with it.

    Kanye will be ok while his pockets are being emptied out, but when Kim finds that white man to share her love and his money with, I hope he doesnt go crazy.
