Kanye West: ‘I’m Sorry Daytime Television. I’m Sorry for the Realness’

Rapper explains why he asked Mark Zuckerberg for money on ‘Ellen’

Kanye West made a rare talk show appearance when he stopped by Ellen to discuss having more kids, Twitter regret and his plan to change the world. Plus, the rapper showed off his goofy side playing a game of “Five Second Rule.”

DeGeneres congratulated West on his second child Saint, who is now five months old. As for more children, West is hopeful though DeGeneres reminds him that his wife is done. “Let’s see what happens,” West joked. “I’ll tell you what’s gonna happen – nothing,” DeGeneres responded.

West reflected on his Twitter, noting that he doesn’t regret a single tweet even though Kardashian and DeGeneres think he should have a board of directors behind each one he sends. One of West’s infamous series of tweets was when he requested financial backing for his ideas from several entrepreneurs, including Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. West joked about reaching out to the founder of one social media site through its rival site. 

“I feel that if I had more resources, I could help more people,” West said, more seriously. “I have ideas that can make the human race’s existence within our hundred years better.”

DeGeneres pushed him to detail his ideas, which include potentially working with Payless ShoeSource, the nationwide discount footwear store. West hopes to use his knowledge of couture trends and make them more accessible to people who cannot afford the designer items. “I want to take away bullying,” he said, recalling a time when he was jealous of all the kids who had better clothes than him as a child.

At the end of the lengthy speech, West was as unapologetic for speaking freely on Ellen as he is for his Twitter. “I’m sorry daytime television,” he said. “I’m sorry for the realness.”
