Kanye West Talks Kim Kardashian, Fatherhood on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
Kanye West not only premiered his “Bound 2″ video on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, he also gushed about his fiance, Kim Kardashian, and about raising baby North West.
“People make fun of me for how in love I actually am,” Kanye told Ellen. “People are just so cool with their approach to things, and also I’m trying to avoid the jump-up-on-the-couch moment.” That comment apparently is a reference to Tom Cruise’s infamous appearance on Oprah when he jumped on her couch when describing how in love he was with then-girlfriend, Katie Holmes.
Kanye reveals that Kim’s personality is “so calming” and she was there for him at his “lowest moment.” “It’s incredible to have a woman like that that you know is not using you for money,” he explained.
The rapper also said that he’s “super-focused” on raising his five-month-old daughter, who Ellen described as a beautiful baby.
“Just being super-focused, even more determined to get these ideas across and establish the exact foundation I want for my family,” he says. “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.”
When asked about his upcoming wedding, Yeezy remained mum on the the details but did promise that the ceremony will be “awesome.” He said of getting married, “You just do it and you don’t hold back.”
