Kanye West Likens His Past Self to a Baby in the ‘Terrible Twos’
As he recalls his negative behavior from years back, Kanye West reveals in a talk with good friend Ellen DeGeneres on how much he has changed and what made him change into a calmer man.
On Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015, Kanye West was called in as Ellen DeGeneres’ guest for one of her birthday episodes this week. West also took the chance to show the new music video of “Only One,” his collaboration with Paul McCartney. He even added that he still hasn’t though of a title for his album yet.
In a more serious note, West tells of how his marriage with Kim Kardashian and having their daughter North to take care of gave him a calmer perspective in life and learn how to compromise. DeGeneres seconded this, even noting that he no longer looked angry and frustrated.
West continued amidst some moments of laughter from the audience.
“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. And for me, there [were] so many things I wanted to do… 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,” West shared.
Well, it certainly sounds like West had some good vibes surrounding him lately that made him see things in a better light.
Some of West’s notable bad behavior before was his claiming that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” and grabbing Taylor Swift’s microphone while onstage during the 2009 MTV VMAs and announcing that Beyoncé deserved to get the Best Female Video and not Swift. In 2013, he also lunged at a photographer, thus earning two years of probation, 250 hours of community service and 30 days of anger management.
