Kanye West may have problems but he's aware that he has quality problems. In a new interview with Us Weekly, the superstar rapper reflected on his unborn son, and the issues that being in the media poses.
"Do I worry about being in the public eye and raising kids? Yeah... but it's champagne problems," he said of his life. "It's people who can't feed their kids. That's something to worry about more... These aren't real issues. There's people at war. There's people trying to make it to London right now.... That celeb s--t, it's not real s--t... You know what, I'm alive. I'm breathing... I have no problems."
The 38-year-old did a one-on-one interview with the SHOWStudio team at Paris Fashion Week, and answered some questions posed by Vogue's Anna Wintour, including "What will you name your son?" and "And what are your hopes for him as he gets older?"
Despite wife Kim Kardashian's statement that she loves the name "Easton," Kanye said, "I don't have a name for him, but what I hope for him is that he can feel purpose. That he can learn that he has the opportunities to..."
Yeezy also got reflective about witnessing something in Paris, explaining, "The other night I was driving in Paris, and I saw these three high school kids running top speed. I didn't know if they were chasing a guy or what, and there was a bus on the side of the street that was about to pull off, and they were beating on the side of the bus. And I looked at the time and it was like, 1 a.m., so that might be the last bus of the night, and I was just like, really saddened. I was like, 'How can I make my son feel that?'"
West himself has felt that desperation. "Because once you've felt that, then none of these f--king questions matter. When you've missed that last bus before, when you have the opportunity to get on the bus? You don't give a f--k about any of this," he mused. "And having to sleep downtown in a parking lot, it's almost like not feeling anything. It's almost like being numb because of what I went through."
