Kanye: Don't embarrass North

Kanye West

Kanye West has poked fun at his infamous stage invasion at the 2009 MTV VMAs.

The hip-hop star was referencing his infamous stage invasion at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs). He interrupted as Taylor Swift accepted her best female video prize, claiming the gong should have gone to Beyoncé Knowles.

Now he has baby daughter North with his girlfriend Kim Kardashian, Kanye regrets his behaviour.

"Even at my lowest points, the last thing that I would want to happen to my daughter is some crazy drunk black guy in a leather shirt to come up and cut her off at an awards show," he told Kim's mother Kris Jenner on her talk show.

"I was just like a crazy rock star."

Kanye's interview with Kris airs in the US today and the rapper takes the opportunity to show off the very first pictures of North.

He has been transformed by his role as a dad and refers to Kim as his "joy" during the talk.

Kris is keen for people to know what kind of dad the hip-hop star is, although he joked her comments should be kept under wraps.

"I’m so impressed as a parent, because I have six kids, and to watch you guys, you know, when your baby has a baby, it’s a remarkable time. You really embraced your role as a daddy," Kris gushes. "You're the softest, sweetest… I mean, you guys cannot believe what’s going on in that house. It’s like magical.

Kanye quickly laughs: "Please don’t call me soft as a rapper."
