On Monday (November 18th) Kanye stopped by “The Ellen Show” to debut his latest music video, “Bound 2”, starring fiancee Kim K. After the world premiere, Kanye spoke very openly about his love for his baby mother, and had no shame in expressing more of it. He admits that Kim brings the best out of him, and that although people sometimes make fun of him for being so loving, he could care less.
Catch some highlights from the interview below:
“She’s a person that, when I was at my lowest moments, I could get on the phone with her and she would make me feel like I was here for a reason and I had something to say and just support me through that. It’s incredible to have a woman like that you know is not using you for money. I have to word it like that because once you become a multi-millionaire, there’s a certain type of woman out there that go for that and they’ll put on the whole act and everything. But to have someone that has their own shit… And her personality is so calming.”
On how fatherhood has changed him: “Just being super focused, even more determined to get these ideas across and establish the exact foundation I want for my family. I’m not as concerned about the idea of profanity or nudity, it’s more the messaging behind it. She’s gonna be in the real world, and she’s gonna hear things and see things, and I think she’s gonna be prepared for them.”
On his epic proposal and the upcoming wedding:
“She thought I was gonna bring Lana Del Rey out and she’s already expecting these types of things. She’s like, ‘That’s something you would do, rent out a baseball field and bring Lana there for my birthday,’ so I knew I had to turn up more because people expect even more from me in every situation, whether it’s an album, video, concert, or engagement. I might have taken it completely to another level.”
“It could be just whatever I imagine. I think that when you have a lot of creativity and a lot of love and passion, you just do it and you don’t hold back. I think there’s sensibilities and things that are classified under a tasteful way to do it and what’s chic and all that, and after I learned how to do all that, I decided to just not to and just do what I felt. I just think that Kim is awesome and she deserves an awesome moment like that.”
