Kanye West stops by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Tuesday (Nov. 19). Check out his “Bound 2” video here and above, West talks about his think tank that he’s using to collaborate with various artists and even a pastor — “My plan is not to become the best fashion designer or the best filmmaker, it’s just to take a perspective.” He also says his three idols are “Jesus Christ, my dad and Steve Jobs.”
“God gave me everything that I wanted and now I want to take a piece of that joy that I’m feeling and give it back to the people that helped make it happen for me,” he adds.
“Just being super focused, like even more determined to get these ideas across and establish the exact foundation I want for my family. … I’m not as concerned with the idea of profanity or nudity, it’s more the message behind it. She’s going to be in the real world, so she’s going to hear things and see things. I think she’s gotta be prepared for that.”
On his proposal to Kim:
“I think people expect even more form me in every situation, whether it’s an album, a video, a concert or an engagement. I may have taken it completely … to another level. … I think that Kim is awesome and she just deserved like awesome moment like that.”
On his love for Kim:
“She’s an important person. When I was at my lowest moments, I could get on the phone with her and she would make me feel like, you know, 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, that you know is not using you for money. I just have to word it like that because once you become a multi-millionaire, there’s a certain type of women out there that go for that and they’ll put on a whole act. But to have someone that has their own s*** … and her personality is so calming. I don’t know if that’s the way people would describe my personality.
I don’t know if I can express [my love] enough. It’s almost like people make fun of me for like how in love I actually am it just sounds … I just think people are just so cool with their approach to things, you know. And also I’m trying to avoid the jump-up-on-the-couch moment, but yeah it’s just, it’s good.”
