Three clips from Kanye West‘s upcoming hour-long interview with Kris Jenner have surfaced in which the notoriously media wary rapper talks happily and openly about his relationship with Kim Kardashian (who conveniently happens to be Jenner’s daughter).
In the first clip, West talks candidly about his life after death of his mother Donda in 2007 saying, “There was times where I would put my life at risk. I felt like sometimes I didn’t have something to live for, and now I have two really special people to live for, a whole family to live for, a whole world to live for.”
Below, West also speaks about ignoring the criticisms directed towards him because of his relationship with Kardashian, taking the advice of his recently deceased grandfather, who he says was all about finding joy in life: “She’s my joy and she brought my new joy into the world, and there’s no paparazzi or no blog comment that’s gonna take that joy from me.”
And finally, in a clip posted on the show’s YouTube page that has since been removed, West makes a reference to Tom Cruise’s famous couch-jumping incident on Oprah.
