WATCH: Kanye West Opens Up About His Future Son
“What will you name your son, and what do you hope for him as he gets older?” She asked in a submitted question to SHOWstudio, who did a nearly two hour-long interview with West at Paris Fashion Week.
As can be expected, Kanye didn’t give one or two sentence answers, but talked at length about what he hoped for his and Kim Kardashian’s future son. “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…” Kanye began.
He went on to tell a story about how when he driving in Paris one night, he saw high school kids running after a bus, which was the last bus of the night, and the desperation they must have felt. “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?'” He went on to say, “Once you’ve felt that, then none of these fucking 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 fuck about any of this.”
The interviewer went on to ask West if he worries about raising his children in the public eye where his every move is scrutinized. “Do I worry about being in the public eye and raising kids? Yeah. Any situation you’re in you’re gonna worry about raising kids, but it’s champaign problems, too. There’s people who can’t feed their kids, that’s something more to worry about. So, I’m not going to sit here and complain about the so-called issues I have, these aren’t real issues. There’s people at war,” he said.
When asked how becoming a father changed the way he works, Kanye revealed, “Three years ago after this interview, I would have been on a train back to Paris to see the last of the shows,” he said, “Now i’m on the first flight back home to see my greatest inspiration, that’s my daughter.”
