West showed up in the Mon., Oct. 28, 2019 episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden just days after releasing his gospel album, Jesus Is King. A twist on the host’s wildly popular segment, Carpool Karaoke, where he sings in cars with musicians, Corden took to the skies with West, calling the segment Airpool Karaoke. Learn why Kardashian West is concerned about her husband going on tour to promote his new album.
The father of four — he and Kardashian West have two girls and two boys together; North, Chicago, Saint, and Psalm — sat on an airplane surrounded by more than 100 members of his Sunday Service choir. Together they sang some of West’s biggest hit songs including 2004’s “Jesus Walks” and a new song, “Selah” from the 42-year-old’s most recent album when West wasn’t chatting with Corden, according to People.
Kanye West says he’s been married for what feels like ‘500 years’
Even though West and the founder of KKW Beauty and SKIMS have been married for only five years — they renewed their vows in honor of their anniversary with a backyard ceremony that wasn’t filmed for Keeping Up with the Kardashians (KUWTK) at the couple’s request — it feels like longer.
Why? Because according to West, “Marriage years are different than human years.”
He continued jokingly saying, “Like you know how dog years are like seven years? Every marriage year is like 100 years,” adding that he and Kardashian West have been married for what feels like “500 years.”
There’s no denying the couple’s been through a lot together. They’ve had four children together — two via surrogate after Kardashian West had pregnancy complications with North and Saint West that put her health in jeopardy — experienced mental health struggles (West has dealt with bipolar disorder), and all sorts of other drama including their argument over Kardashian West’s Met Gala outfit she wore to the event ahead of Psalm’s birth.
And that’s only what we’ve seen on KUWTK and heard the two discuss during interviews. We’re sure they’ve gone through a lot more together.
He’d rather stay at home than go out
In the same segment, West talked a little bit more about his family life and what he does when he’s not working.
“I don’t like going out at nighttime,” West said. “I like being at home with my family at night as much as possible.”
He elaborated saying they’ll have a pretty standard night in considering his net worth is estimated to be $250 million.
“We’ll eat dinner and we’ll play with the kids and then we’ll put the kids to bed and then we go to bed. And then my wife watches Dateline [and] I read the Bible,” West said.
The rapper also said he’d like to have more children — seven — in the future. We’ll have to wait, watch KUWTK, and keep an eye out on the couple’s social media accounts for more.
