North's name is innovative, fresh: Kanye West

MUMBAI: Kanye West hates it when people call his daughter North's name "weird" because he thinks it is "innovative and fresh".

The 'All Day' rapper is now awaiting the arrival of his second child with wife Kim Kardashian West, reports

"You'll be calling my daughter's name weird, like, her name should be like some name that you've heard before and all that. I don't like to say that it's weird when it's innovative and fresh.

"Like I hate that, like, creatives are beat down so much and are put in a position where they can't even speak out loud, that's the reason why the world be ugly, because there's millions of beautiful colours in the world but the world is only controlled by one colour," he said on a radio station.

Though the 37-year-old says he cannot defend himself against all criticism, he insists he is "brave" enough to take the "hit" on behalf of all creatives. But he thinks he is attacked unfairly as he gives so much to the world.

He said, "I'm in my own zone. I can't walk around trying to defend myself, chime in on everything. I fight for the people who see those colours, who understand it, and I take the hit constantly. I have the bravery to take the hit, people to call me names, call wife names, call my daughter.

"We take the hit, but when it's said and done if you look at the past 10 years, have I contributed more or took away more from the world? From music, from stage design, or just from wearing dope a** coats at the airport?"
