Exclusive: Kanye West Finally Talks About Amber Rose, Tyga , Kylie Jenner, Taylor Swift, Beck And His New Album...



Kanye West addressed all that social media noise about his wife, Kim Kardashian, and his extended family, Kylie Jenner; making an album with Tyga, and one with Drake; why he didn't speak out about Michael Brown, Taylor Swift and Beck.

The recent media storm surrounding his personal life stirred when Amber Rose, visited the The Breakfast Club and derided Tyga's relationship with Jenner. She went on to continue the conversation on Twitter, getting into a back-and-forth with Khloe Kardashian that included Rose calling Kim a "whore."

Kanye cleared up that home-wrecking image of his betrothed. “She’s just soaking in the moment,” he said said of Rose. “If Kim had dated me when I wanted, there would be no Amber Rose." He said he had to take "30 showers" before entering to into a proper courtship with Kim.

As for Tyga's relationship with his lilttle sister-in-law, he said, "I think he got in early, I think he was smart... They closer in age than a lot of relationships I know." The two (Tyga and Jenner) maintain that they are friends.

Kanye went on to say that he's executive producing Tyga's next album.

Yeezy also addressed his and Kim's seemingly strained relationship with the Carters. He said Beyoncé and Kim aren't beefing. "Naw they love each other," he said, "they respect each other. When Beyoncé's working on an album, she has a picture of Kim on the wall" because she represents powerful women, and Kim is always playing Beyoncé's song "7/11," he said.

He admitted there was a touch and go moment with Jay Z, when he was considering making a collaboration album with Drake. This was before Watch The Throne. His new song, "The 'Wolves' song came from a conversation that me and Drake had when we were going to do an album together," and he's still considering it, he said. He's just putting it out there, and "If you don't like it you can send it right back."

As for why he was quiet on such a palpable national issue as Ferguson, "My dad emailed me and told me to stay out of it, that's my only parent, so I have to listen to him. ... I think he was trying to be protective of his son. I can't run in front of every bullet," Kanye said, adding that he does speak about it in his music. "I'm always gon' talk about what's going on, like Marvin Gaye said."

His next album, the Yeezus follow up (The Breakfast Club has tentatively dubbed it #YeezusReturns), doesn't have a release date, however. "I'm trying to get it finished," Kanye said. "I'm trying to get it to the people," but he doesn't mention when. "Release dates are played out."
