The rapper rarely gets worked up about other people's opinions unless they concern his loved ones.

Kanye West starts his day off by reading comments made about himself and his family on social media.

The Stronger hitmaker is known for his random and often lengthy Twitter rants, during which he has previously blasted rival rapper Wiz Khalifa, and appealed to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for a financial handout after revealing pursuing his fashion dreams has left him $53 million (£36.5 million) in debt.

However, Kanye insists he has no regrets about any of his posts, declaring to U.S. radio show Big Boy's Neighborhood, "We're going to be gone in 100 years. I can't say enough."

The star, who shares two children with wife Kim Kardashian, also made it known he reads all of his followers' remarks online first thing every day.

"I wake up in the morning and go read comments," he states.

And the 38-year-old insists most remarks don't bother him, unless they are about his family.

"I'm crazy about my kids," he says. "I'm crazy about Kim."

Kanye proved just how much he loves his wife on America's Mother's Day last month (08May16), when he hired an all-female string orchestra to stage a private performance in their Beverly Hills, California home.

"Mother's Day surprise in my living room!" the thrilled reality star shared on as she documented the lavish gift.

The musicians all wore flowing white skirts as they performed songs picked out by the couple's two-year-old daughter, North, who joined her mum to watch the private concert.

Tracks included Let It Go from the tot's favourite movie, Frozen, and Annie musical hits It's a Hard Knock Life and Tomorrow.

But that wasn't all - Kanye also had a bench covered in an array of bright pink flowers delivered for his wife, who gave birth to son Saint in December (15).
