Kanye West gave one of his infamous, passionate speeches on the Ellen Degeneres Show that might be added to his most memorable moments.
The interview touched on a few lighter topics such as having future children with wife Kim Kardashian—”I’m fine to just practice”—and his daughter North West’s newfound role as a big sister—”She’s really advanced for her age”—the Life of Pablo performer soon found himself in the midst of another lengthy diatribe, except this time it wasn’t on social media.
When DeGeneres asked him if he should have put his earlier request to Mark Zuckerberg for $53 million on Facebook instead of Twitter, the question kicked off the designer’s verbal train of thought.
“I should have put it on Facebook. Now I understand why he didn’t hit me back,” he explained, adding that he has had dinner with Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan privately in the past.
“I feel that if I had more resources, I could help more people. I have ideas that could make the human race existence within our 100 years better—period.”
The artist described a renaissance period he believes the world is currently experiencing, noting figures like Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen who started out as a fine arts student. “We’re not in a place where people can only have one career, one profession throughout their entire life,” he claimed. “I see the importance in the value of everyone being able to experience a more beautiful life.”
