Kanye West is planning to have children, he divulged to Blender for its October cover story. "Yes, I'm engaged. Yes, I plan to have kids," he said. After that, 'Ye quipped, "But I'm not gonna base the night that I conceive a child off of what I tell Blender magazine." In the interview, he also highlighted some recent faves — the Killers, Keane, Modest Mouse — and also admitted that, despite his unforgettable remark about President Bush two years ago, "I'm not very tuned into politics. I apologize to people who expect me to act like I work at CNN." And, of course, what would a West interview be like these days without a few choice comments about his Tuesday rival, 50 Cent? "I pulled the trigger on that date," he revealed, saying it was his idea for the rappers' albums to go head to head. "I got on the phone with Def Jam like, 'Yo, I want to do this.' ... There were people that weren't ready for that fight. And I was like, 'Man, this is what I do!' " Still, he did have some kind words to say about Fif: "Turn this up, please," he said when 50's "I Get Money" reportedly started playing on the radio during the interview. "50 is popping on this. ... I hear 50 drop a number, like, 'I spent this much,' and I'm like, 'Damn! 50 is so much richer than me!' " The MCs are slated to appear on BET's "106 & Park" on Tuesday. The network is planning to treat the event like a boxing match, recruiting ESPN's Stuart Scott to give a statistical breakdown of the MCs.
