“I’ve definitely learned how to compromise more,” the Stronger rapper, 37, reflected of his marriage. “Which is something you have to understand when you partner with people in business.”
And the term ‘happy wife, happy life’ is not lost on the rap superstar.
“And I’ve learned how to shut up more,” he added. “Yeah, I think I’m a better human being because of her, and because of my daughter.”
As it turns out, married life has been positive for the outspoken singer.
“I always have someone to think about going home to,” he shared. “And, you know, something for me to be brave for what I want to do for humanity, but also to be more protective of myself for my family too. ‘Cause 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 went on to say: “You don’t seem like, angry… And I think your emotions are grounded in a way that they come out in protection and love… They’re channeled in a different way.”
The Runaway hitmaker agreed and joked that he was behaving like a toddler.
“I think I was going through my version of my terrible twos,” he shared. “My daughter, she wants to express herself, and she just doesn’t have the words for it. And 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.”
But don’t expect him to keep up with the norm.
“The definition of crazy is trying to do the same thing and expecting a different result,” he shared. “So I tried something different over the past couple of years and I actually got some really good results from it too.”
And just like his lovely wife recently confirmed, they’re planning to add to their brood.
“Yeah, we’re trying,” West said, adding that he “just wants whatever Kim wants.”
