After joining the club of celebrity husband’s and dad’s, Kanye West has certainly learned a few things.
Kanye appeared on today’s birthday episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” and said that he’s changed since starting his new family.
“I’ve definitely learned how to compromise more,” he told DeGeneres with a laugh.
“Which is something you have to understand when you partner with people in business.”
“I’ve learned how to shut up more,” West, 37, quipped.
“I think I’m a better human being because of her and because of my daughter. And I always have someone to think about going home to.
“There are things I’ve done in the past that were considered negative, but I was really jumping in front of the tank for other people or for culture in a way so now I always have to have that in my mind that I have a family that I have to protect too.”
DeGeneres complimented the outspoken rapper for being calmer as of late.
“You don’t seem angry,” the comedian said.
“I don’t know if it was even anger, but it was just a way that you were getting all of your emotions out. Now I think your emotions are grounded in a way that they come out in protection and love and their channeled in a different way.
“I think I was going through my version of my terrible twos. My daughter she wants to express herself and she just doesn’t have the words for it,” West said comparing himself to 1-year-old North West.
“For me there was so many things I wanted to do with film and clothing and I just didn’t have the words or the resources or the backing or the perception that I could do it being that I was a rapper.”
Speaking of his adorable little girl, West gave all of the viewers a first look at his music video for his new song, “Only One” which was first released earlier this month in collaboration with Paul McCartney.
