Kanye West out for dinner in New York in a grey t-shirt and a red blazer

Kanye has likened his daughter Nori to the Duchess of Cambridge


Kanye West stunned the nation earlier this week when he boasted that his five-month-old daughter North West was in the same league as the Duchess of Cambridge in terms of fame.

During a chat with Power 105's The Breakfast Club on Tuesday, the outspoken rapper was keen to gush about his firstborn and her already well-established superstar status, after he and his reality TV star fiancée Kim Kardashian welcomed her into the world in June.

Comparing little Nori to Kate Middleton, Kanye, who has previously likened himself to Steve Jobs, Shakespeare, Picasso and even God, boasted: 'My daughter is in a position of a level of royalty like the prince and princess in London.'

The hip-hop star also reacted to the controvery surrounding his now infamous Bound 2 music video, which hit the headlines for featuring some seriously steamy motorbike riding between him and wife-to-be Kim.

'I wanted to take white trash T-shirts and make it into a video', he claimed. 'I wanted it to look as phony as possible.'

'I'm like Marina Abramovic', Kanye continued, referring to the famed artist. 'This is, like, performance art. This thing is, I don't got a problem with looking stupid.'

Wonder who will get the Kanye treatment next?
