Smarty-pants! North West already is ahead in the fashion game, and the same can be said for her technology skills. Kanye West recently revealed that his daughter is already a reader — or at least a screen swiper — during an interview with Clique TV.

"My daughter learned how to swipe before she learned how to read," West, 37, explained, while speaking about mobile technology. "I want to see before I pass 5 year olds being ten times the level of current human 5 year olds right now."

The "Bound 2" rapper has spoiled his 20-month-old since welcoming her in June 2013 with wife Kim Kardashian. Over the holidays that year, the couple even gifted her with a mini Lamborghini toy car. In the interview, he admitted he's picky with what North plays with.

"I gave my daughter these toys and I was complaining about some of the toys that my daughter had and I was saying these toys don't have enough quality, soul, life, energy in them," he said.

He added: "Then [Italian artist] Vanessa Beecroft bought her these wolves that were very life-like and when my daughter saw them she started screaming and running around and was the happiest I'd ever seen her."

When not running after his little one, West is busy with his Adidas Originals sneaker collection and new music. In May, he will also be getting an honorary doctorate degree from the Art Institute of Chicago.

"I don't care about what anyone in fashion has to say about what I want to do. I'm here in fashion to learn sensibility," he said. "I want to create something comparable to what Walt Disney did, but then mix it with what Henry Ford did and mix it what with Howard Hughes did…"

As for if he ever wishes he wasn't famous? "Nope, not anymore," he said, smiling. "I'm very happy to be famous. It is a tool that you can use to message as you want. It's taking the power into your own hand."
