Kanye West has acknowledged he should have put his request for money from Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook, rather than Twitter.

Kanye West] is "fine just to practice" instead of having another baby with wife {Kim Kardashian.

The 38-year-old rapper is father to two-year-old North and five-month-old Saint with Kim. She recently revealed he had been begging her to have another baby, but Kanye said that's not the case as he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Thursday (19May16).

When Ellen asked him if he wanted another baby Kanye replied "Maybe", while adding "Perhaps" when she asked if Kim wanted another one.

"Let’s see what happens," he added. "I’m fine to just practice!"

Kanye lived up to his reputation as he launched a lengthy stream of consciousness on Ellen's show, telling the audience that all he's ever cared about is helping the human race.

Ellen also asked The Life of Pablo star about the now infamous incident where he asked Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg for $53 million to help him out.

"Yes, I should have put it on Facebook," Kanye laughed. "Now I understand why he didn’t hit me back. I understand that Zuckerberg doesn’t use Twitter and even though I have had dinner with him and his wife, and told him about how I wanted to help the world, and he said he’d help me and then blah blah blah.

"That’s how it feels though - it’s like The Pursuit of Happyness, like it’s you’re trying to sell this bone density machine or something, you know in that movie? I feel that if I had more resources I could help more people. I have ideas that can make the human race's existence within our 100 years better. Period. F**k the paparazzi, or whatever perception you have of me - starting with the truth, starting with what everyone’s thinking, start there, put some dope s**t with it."

Another topic in Kanye's lengthy rant was the diversity row surrounding the Academy Awards earlier this year. Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith boycotted the ceremony due to the lack of nominations for black actors, and Kanye insisted the debate about diversity in Hollywood should be taken seriously.

"I don’t take the Oscars as a joke, 'it was funny, you know what I'm saying'," Kanye continued. "It was like the moment, all black actors can talk about the glass ceilings we’ve dealt with in this town. You go ahead, Chris Rock’s going to do it - talk about how many times you’ve been blocked from being able to excel. I didn’t take it as a joke - it ain’t no joke."

Tackling other subjects such as how he is helping the world through his clothes and his condition Synesthesia, which enables him to see sound, Kanye concluded: "’m sorry daytime television, I’m sorry for the realness."
