“I don’t know if I can express it enough — it’s almost like, people make fun of me for how in love I actually I am,” West said of Kardashian, in reference to Tom Cruise’s infamous moment at Oprah Winfrey’s talk show. “I’m also trying to avoid the jump-up-on-the-couch moment. It’s good.”

Directed by photographer Nick Knight, the video shows Kanye West roaming in Arizona with his girlfriend on his motorcycle.

“I think a misconception that people have about the way I create is that it’s an I, I, I thing, and the reason I created DONDA, which is a content experience and product company, was to create a think tank with other amazing artists, and let us bounce ideas — no one has reign, it’s just the best idea wins,” the rapper said.

“I get a lot of backlash for comparing myself to Steve Jobs but that’s my dream, that’s one of my idols,” he added before tackling his haters. “They’d rather laugh at you and make a spoof about you when they really should be helping you and investing in you, or helping the world see this in this light. The paparazzi is completely distracting to the thoughts that I have.”
