Kanye West Says Having Daughters Hasn’t Changed His Attitudes Towards Women; ‘I Still Look At PornHub’

Kanye West returned to “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Thursday, and while the main topics revolved around his mental health and comments he made about Donald Trump, West also opened about his kids, his music, and his porn preferences.

Kimmel asked the Grammy Award-winning artist about a couple of song’s from his new album, Ye, including the track “Violent Crimes.” In the song, West imagines his daughter grown-up and men lusting after her, something he aims to protect her from.

“You’re very, very worked up about this,” Kimmel said, “prematurely, some might say. Do you think about that? You think that far ahead?”

“Oh, I think lifetimes and lifetimes ahead,” answered West, who has two little girls, North and Chicago, with wife Kim Kardashian.

The late night host wondered if West’s attitudes towards women had changed since having daughters. After pausing for a moment, the “Yikes” rapper quipped, “Nah, I still look at PornHub.”

“What kind of stuff do you look at? What categories?” Kimmel asked as the audience laughed along. “Black is my favourite category,” West revealed with a smile before Kimmel explained he “didn’t have to go into that.”

“I mean, what’s the point of being Kanye West if you can’t? Let’s break down the porn categories” West joked, before stating he enjoys a lot of “black-on-white… obviously.”

Kimmel also asked about the album’s opener, “I Thought About Killing You”, a self-reflective song where West contemplates suicide.

West talked about receiving an email from a person whose mom had passed away and had subsequently tried to kill themselves by taking 60 pills. “And they wrote at the end ‘pre-meditated murder’,” a refrain West uses throughout the track.

He went on to say that people need to be less afraid to talk about these kind of issues, “whether it’s opiod addiction, whether it’s suicide, whether it’s all these things, we just wanna put a patina on it and not face it.”

“When you’re an artist and you’re creative and you want to give so much to the world against all odds, there’s times when you can go into that place,” West added.
