Kanye West says his daughter North is the same as Prince George.

The 'Heartless' rapper claims his five-month old child should be considered royalty and an equal to the young prince, the first born of Prince William and his wife Duchess Catherine.

In an interview on Power 105's Breakfast show, Kanye said: ''My daughter is in a position of a level of royalty like the prince and princess in London.''

Kanye, 36, also claimed the motivation behind his 'Bound 2' music video - which features a topless Kim Kardashian - was to mock the ''white trash'' popular culture that is presented to the world every day.

He said: ''I wanted to take white trash T-shirts and make it into a video. I wanted it to look as phony as possible. I wanted the clouds to go one direction, the mountains to go one direction, the horses to go over there ... because I want to show you that this is 'The Hunger Games'. I want to show you that this is the type of imagery that's been presented to all of us. And the only difference is a black dude in the middle of it.''

The video has already attracted worldwide attention, and actors James Franco and Seth Rogen created a spoof of the promo that went viral earlier this week.
