Marriage and fatherhood have made Kanye West think about more than himself and his art – and that's made him a better person, he says.
"I've definitely learned how to compromise more," the rapper, 37, told Ellen DeGeneres about being married to Kim Kardashian, 34. "And I've learned how to shut up more. And yeah, I think I'm a better human being because of her and because of my daughter [North]."
West still has lofty visions for his work, of course, and wants to be "brave for what I want to do for humanity, but also to be more protective of myself for my family, too."
He also said he sees a lot of himself in his daughter – particularly when she gets frustrated.

Jennifer Aniston may have been passed over by Oscar for her transformative performance in Cake, but the star has come out of awards season on top in another way – she famously got handsy with Kate Hudson "irresistible tush"!
When Ellen DeGeneres brought up the Golden Globes grab on Monday's Ellen, Aniston, 45, didn't pause before saying, "Well, my gosh, look at that ass!"
She also laughed that, as a woman, "I'm allowed!"
Aniston's good humor likewise inspired a huge chuckle of relief when she addressed her Oscar omission: "I'm the No. 1 snubbed!"

Ellen DeGeneres is not looking to make history (again) in prime time.
So even though One Big Happy – a new comedy she's executive producing for NBC – features a lesbian character having a baby with her straight male friend, the goal was to make people laugh, not break new ground on TV.
"It just happens to be a very funny show. It happens to have a lesbian character in it," DeGeneres told reporters Friday. "It's not like I formed a production company and said, 'Bring me all your lesbian scripts.' I'm not just going to be a lesbian machine that just turns out stuff."

Call him the "Cumberbomber."
While Benedict Cumberbatch's fans have their own moniker, the elegant yet hunky English actor's record for the televised photobombing stands as reason to reconsider his own nickname.
"You're like an awards show professional … you're photobombing everybody in sight now," Ellen DeGeneres teased The Imitation Game star and expectant dad, 38, when he made his first appearance on her show Wednesday.
