Kanye West: Kim Kardashian is my joy

Kanye West openly detests paparazzi, but he's willing to put up with them out of love for his frequently photographed girlfriend, Kim Kardashian.

The 36-year-old rapper said as much to Kim's mom, Kris Jenner, during an hour-long talk on her new daytime show, "Kris." According to him, being with the mother of his first child, North, is worth whatever risk the relationship might pose to his reputation.

"I could have people saying, this is going to damage your credibility as an artist or as a designer, and I say, you know, I don't care, I love this woman," he tells Jenner in a preview clip from the interview.

"Or someone could say ... everyone knows you don't like paparazzi, but why would you be with this person? And I would say, I'm being with this person because I love this person and she's worth it to me," the "Yeezus" artist continued. "My grandfather just passed, and his whole thing - it was never about money, it was never about popularity, his whole thing was joy, just joy, just having joy in his life. And she's my joy, and she brought my new joy into the world, and there's no paparazzi, and there's no blog comment that can take that joy from me."


West, who's occasionally given cantankerous interviews in the past, was all about positivity in his chat with his daughter North's grandmother. In preview clips, the two discuss the impact his mother's death had on his will to live, and, yet again, his adoration of his reality star love.



Kanye and Kim have yet to share photos of baby North, but there's word that grandma Kris has landed an exclusive. According to E!, which airs the Kardashian-Jenner family's reality franchise, Ye "proudly shows off" a snapshot of two-month-old daughter North, who arrived ahead of schedule in mid-June.

"North is very beautiful. She has big cheeks, a lighter complexion than Kanye, but closer to Kanye's color than Kim's," says one onlooker who reportedly caught a glimpse of the picture. "She has straight black hair and almond eyes just like Kim. She has a round face and is really cute."

E! reports that the image was only displayed "for a second," and that audience members who attended the taping of Kanye's interview had their phones taken away so they couldn't duplicate the photo.

The full interview will air Friday on "Kris," which is currently available only in select markets on Fox. If you're in New York or Phoenix, tune in at 11 a.m. Those in Los Angeles and Dallas should watch their Fox stations at 3 p.m., and Minneapolis residents at 12 p.m. If you get Fox 46 Carolinas, set your DVR for 2 p.m.

    Kanye...who cares...Kardashians....who cares. These people are whoring out their whole family for a buck. These people prove exactly where morals have gone. I don't think there is a producer out there that can produce a decent show worth watching. Jerry Springer....now there's the master of pimping. HaHaHa!!! To funny!!! Just happened upon this sight, hahahaha, can't quit laughin. Oh yeah, there's a new show comin too. NFL, National Felony League. Got the hit lists. Top Atheletes murderin each other. Fans shootin each other after the show...HAHAHA!!! This is kinda fun. Well, guess I've said enough. See ya all on the boob tube. Hey, hear them Housewives are raising hell again. HEHEHE!!! Well, guess i'd better square up with ya all, my neighbor is tellin me what to write, cause I don't watch none of this crap.....lol

    Boy people are so mean and hateful, Congratulations to the new parents. Little Nori is a beautiful addition to the family. I pray that Kim and their daughter brings Kanye the joy that will fill the void that the loss of his loved ones left him.

    Kim is pushing to be a joy for one year and clear out Kanye's bank account and future earning. right now the child support just isn't enough. Mama Kris is spreading it on thick to help Kim get those papers. this is the third try and Damon Thomas from money wised up quick, Kris Humphries was almost caught for money and now the third try is Kanye if no one saves him. Kim is a star known all around the World as the US Porn Queen as he puts out so many porn tapes that is what caught Kanye's eye.

    Kanye would look so much cooler with a few stink nuggets stuffed in his nose and perhaps a corn studded poop smeared across his face.

    Kris is a bad influence on woman. No shame. No conscience. No character. No morals. No dignity. No class. No wonder Kanyeesus fits in with them. No brain.

      And they're laughing all the way the bank. I guarantee that 99.9% of you people out there would jump at the opportunities this family has had. And a lot of them were created by Kris, who obviously has quite a brain.

    Kanye had to say that about Kim - he was on his mother in law's TV show.

    I have examined my heart, and still come to the conclusion that he's an egotistical D-Bag and she's a talentless media w h o r e. But, that's who they are or who they've chosen to be. I don't wish them any ill will.
