Kris Jenner and Kanye West on Friday's "Kris"

"There's no paparazzi and there's no blog comments that's going to take that joy from me," West says on Friday's episode of "Kris."

Kanye West's interview with Kris Jenner hasn't come to TV yet, but in a teaser video from the sit-down, the outspoken MC addressed his relationship with Kim Kardashian, Jenner's daughter.

"I can have people saying that this is going to damage your credibility as an artist or a designer, and I say, 'I don't care, I love this woman,'" he said.

He brought up the philosophy of his grandfather, who he said recently passed away, as an influence on his approach to life and relationships.

"His whole thing was joy," West said, drawing cheers from the studio audience. "She's my joy, and she brought my new joy into the world. There's no paparazzi and there's no blog comments that's going to take that joy from me."
