‘My ego was all I had!’: Kanye West credits Kim Kardashian and becoming a father for taming his arrogance and ‘douchebaggery’
He has said he’s as innovative as Apple founder Steve Jobs and as influential as Jesus Christ.
But modesty was one trait that has not been routinely associated with Kanye West.
However, that has changed since marrying Kim Kardashian, the 37-year-old rapper revealed in a recent interview with NY Times’ T magazine. ‘I feel like now I have an amazing wife, a super-smart child and the opportunity to create in two major fields. Before I had those outlets, my ego was all I had.’
The 37-year-old who tied the knot with the reality star last year and became a first-time father to 21-month-old daughter North West made an intriguing analogy about his arrogance and a weighty piece of furniture that burdened his peace.
‘I have this table in my new house. They put this table in without asking. It was some weird Nouveau riche marble table, and I hated it,’ he explained.
‘But it was literally so heavy that it took a crane to move it. We would try to set up different things around it, but it never really worked.’
