Kanye West shared his thoughts about a wide range of subjects in an interview with GQ magazine that took place 10 days after his marriage with Kim Kardashian. He opened up about his reason to marry Kim and how he perceived "celebrity rights."
Kanye compared his love for Kim with a kid's love for a dinosaur, saying, "When a kid falls in love with an airplane or a bike or a dinosaur- especially if you're an only child and it's not because of the book that the sibling was reading - it's like, f**k, you mean to tell me that the dinosaurs walked the earth and stuff like that?! That's amazing!"
He continued, "You mean to tell me that this girl with this f**king body and this face is also into style, and she's a nice person, and she has her own money and is family-oriented? That's just as cool as a f**king fighter jet or dinosaur! And just as rarely seen."
Because Kanye didn't want to "lose his dinosaur," he married her. He explained, "God wants us to love each other, that is infectious. Like they said in Step Brothers: Never lose your dinosaur. This is the ultimate example of a person never losing his dinosaur. Meaning that even as I grew in cultural awareness and respect and was put higher in the class system in some way for being this musician, I never lost my dinosaur."
During his wedding toast, Kanye delivered a speech about "celebrity rights." He said, "It was the idea of celebrity, and celebrities being treated like blacks were in the '60s, having no rights." Kanye would "fight" for the rights of celebrities, saying, "We're going to fight to raise the respect level for celebrities so that my daughter can live a more normal life. She didn't choose to be a celebrity. But she is."
But Kanye only fights to "defend" himself and his family, so he refused to be called a "predator." He said, "I'm a blowfish. I'm not a shark, I'm a blowfish." He added, "I wasn't coming out of my house going to a paparazzi's house to attack them. I'm defending my family in front of my own house. I'm defending my name as someone's screaming something negative at me. That's a blowfish. People have me pinned as a shark or a predator in some way, and in no way am I that. I wouldn't want to hurt anyone. I want to defend people. I want to help people."
Kanye also told the magazine that "people know" he's "smart." He also said that all he was doing was cool, saying, "It's all innovative. You just might not understand it yet. But it's cool." He also argued that his new single, "New Slave", contained "the best rap verse of all time."
