Kanye West is speaking out in defense of Kim Kardashian's recent fashion choices.
In the months leading up to the arrival of the couple's daughter, North, the E! star received quite a bit of negative media attention about her maternity look.
"Nobody can tell my girl what to do," West told W magazine in an interview conducted before the birth of his baby regarding rumors that he was the sole influence behind Kardashian's wardrobe selections. "She just needed to be given some platforms of information to work from."
West added, "One beautiful thing is that she discovers it, the world discovers it. For her to take that risk in front of the world, it just shows you how much she loves me. And how much she actually loves the opportunity to learn. You got, like a million companies saying, 'This is impacting your brand! This is impacting your fans! And blah blah blah.' But she still sees this light of beauty."
When asked about having any qualms about appearing on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, West said, "Oh, that's just all for love. It's simply that. At a certain point, or always, love is more important than any branding, or any set of cool people or attempting to impress anyone. Because true love is just the way you feel. Thoughts and feelings can disagree sometimes."
Meanwhile, West is clearly focused on his little girl.
"Kanye is so hands-on," a family source tells E! News. "He's changing diapers."
