“I feel like if I had more resources I can help more people,” Kim Kardashian West’s man told Ellen DeGeneres, after the host addressed a tweet where he asked Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, for $53 million. West compared himself to Will Smith in the film, The Pursuit of Happyness, saying that selling his ideas was like “selling a bone density machine.”
While the whole thing was certainly a little strange – even leaving DeGeneres speechless at one point – we totally feel that Yeezy’s passion was coming from a good place. “I care about people,” he said to the audience. “My dad lived in homeless shelters less than five years ago. He’s a psych major. My mom was the first black female chair of the English department at Chicago State University. I was raised to do something, to make a difference.”
Later in the conversation, West declared he wanted to bring fashion to the masses and end bullying. It was like watching him tweet in real life, and we sort of loved every second of it.
West ended things in true Kanye fashion, saying, “I’m sorry daytime T.V. I’m sorry for the realness.”
