Kanye West was full of smiles when he sat on Seth Meyers‘ couch on Tuesday for an interview with the talk show host. Kanye even joked that he has to change the tone of his music to be more kid friendly, because of his daughter, North West.
The rapper said on Late Night With Seth Meyers: ‘My approach to life has changed.‘ Adding that he will be recording music for ‘artistic intellectual kids‘ now that he is himself a father to eight-month-old North. But when asked if that meant he’d stop peppering his songs with curse words, the Yeezus star then discussed how there is ‘nudity on European television’ and that it is all a ‘matter of perspective’, effectively squelching any talk of cleaning up his lyrical content for youngsters.
Kanye, who wore a crisp white shirt and black trousers to the late night appearance, seemed to be in a happy mood as he laughed and joked throughout his interview.
When it came to his fashion efforts, the Pretty Lights artist compared his clothing creations to sculpting with marble just as he created ‘sonic paintings’ with his music (citing his synaesthesia).
He also talked about the constraints of his celebrity, where expectations for him as an artist have now become limitations dictating what he can and cannot do.
But Kanye promised that he is breaking barriers and that in 10 years time people will see the value of the work he is doing.
