Rapper also explains his absence from Keeping Up With The Kardashians...

Kanye Westhas addressed his relationship with Kim Kardashian, stating she makes it easier for him to focus.
During an interview with the New York Times, Yeezy spoke fondly of the socialite, stating: "Any woman that you're in love with or that loves you is going to command a certain amount of, you know, energy. It's actually easier to focus, in some ways."
When the interview suggested that his romance with Kim could be a "distraction", West replied: "Yeah, that's what I mean when I say, like, 'Yo, I'm going to be super Zenned-out, like, five years from now'.
"I'm the type of rock star that likes to have a girlfriend, you know? I'm the type of soul that likes to be in love and likes to be able to focus. And that inspires me."
Despite being open about his feelings for Kardashian - who is expecting a baby girl with the rap star - Kanye was less reluctant to talk about becoming a father for first time.
He said: "One of the things [I thought about parenthood] was just to be protective - that I would do anything to protect my child or my child's mother. As simple as that.
"I don't want to explain too much into what my thoughts on, you know, fatherhood are, because I've not fully developed those thoughts yet. I don't have a kid yet... "
Yeezy added: "I just don't want to talk to America about my family. Like, this is my baby. This isn't America's baby."
Kanye - who is due to release his new album Yeezus on June 18 - also spoke about his decision to cut back his appearances on Kim's reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
He explained that after organising Kimmy's closet on the show, he received a negative response, stating: "That was from a place of love. It's hard when people read things in a lot of different ways.
"You know, the amount of backlash I got from it is when I decided to not be on the show anymore. It's not that I have an issue with the show; I just have an issue with the amount of backlash that I get."
He added: "Because I just see, like, an amazing person that I'm in love with that I want to help."
