The outspoken hip-hop star has attracted worldwide attention for his legendary Twitter rants, but Kanye has insisted he does not lose sleep thinking about the public's reaction to his comments because he will be “gone in 100 years”.

Asked if he regrets the things he posts online, the 'Power' rapper said: “We're going to be gone in 100 years. I can't say enough.”

Kanye admitted he occasionally has to explain his tweets to his wife Kim Kardashian West, and also revealed he is relishing the experience of fatherhood.

The celebrity duo have two children together - two-year-old daughter North and six-month-old son Saint - and Kanye is embracing being a dad.

He told the hip-hop radio station Real 92.3: “I'm so happy to be a father. I want to learn what my daughter has to say. What she learns. I just want to learn how she learns in this world. I'm extremely protective.”

The controversial star, who claimed to be $53 million in debt during a bizarre Twitter rant earlier this year, also said his children have become the motivating factor behind many of his life choices.

In reference to his Yeezy shoe design, Kanye shared: “When I left Nike for Adidas I did it for my daughter.

“There was an opportunity to grow. There was love and admiration at Adidas, this was to make a better life for my daughter.”

What's more, Kanye revealed he is currently working on new music and compared himself to Michael Jackson.

He added: “I'm a champion. I'm a winner. I came to innovate. I came to change. This is like Michael Jackson level.

“You need a guy like me in the game. I only know how to give 1,000 percent.”
