Kanye West is sick of defending himself.

The 'Stronger' hitmaker admitted he is tired of being forced to address his critics after it was rumoured he and his wife Kim Kardashian West had shut down an entire play area so their daughter North could enjoy it by herself.

Addressing speculation that the 34-year-old reality star had asked for 60 kids to be removed from a Los Angeles Chuck E. Cheese so the tot could play there, Kanye told New York's Hot 97: ''I haven't even been to Chuck E. Cheese, but I'm glad that I heard that, so I could intercept it.

''First of all, they should be paying me to even say their name. I'm trying to stay off the carbs, I don't even eat pizza! What am I going to do at a Chuck E. Cheese?

''It's a bunch of rumours that just adds to the excitement, but I'm just living my life, man.

''I can't walk around trying to defend myself, chime in on everything''

The rapper went on to attack critics of his daughter's name and insisted he is just trying to focus on his family, as well as his film, music and fashion projects, and his charitable organisation Donda.

He said: ''Like y'all be calling my daughter's name weird, like her name should be some name you've heard before. I don't like to say something's weird when it's innovative and fresh.

''I'm having a good time. I'm with my family, I'm getting the opportunity to create, work on my clothes, work on my films, work on Donda, the next album, work on the art project and deliver the innovation that I know I can.''
