Well here’s a compliment you don’t hear every day – comparing your wife to a dinosaur or a fighter jet. Not in terms of size or power, but purely because she, like those two things, is “cool”. Err, right.
In his latest interview with GQ magazine, Kanye opened up about life after the wedding of the year. He admits the pair struggled after they tied the knot, when work kept them apart for weeks at a time.
“Both me and Kim had to learn how to communicate as a team,” Kanye said.
“These are two LeBrons, you know? Meaning she could do sh*t that a girlfriend in a relationship could never do. Obviously. And I could do stuff that a guy in a relationship could never do.”
“So if you look at half my tweets back then, they were always, like, funny tweets that I wouldn’t be able to say now. It wouldn’t be respectful to my relationship,” he added.
Kanye also opened up about his experience of marriage. It’s his first, while this time round marks Kim’s third (and here’s hoping last) marriage.
“What I had to learn from Kim is how to take more of her advice and less of other people’s advice,” he confessed, probably in response to the rumours that he spends his time micromanaging his new wife.
“There’s a lot of Kim K. skills that were added. In order to win at life, you need some Kim K. skills.” Don’t we all, Kanye…
Of course, no interview with the great Mr. West would be complete without a mini-rant of sorts.
“You mean to tell me that this girl with this f*ing body and this face is also into style, and she’s a nice person, and she has her own money and is family oriented?” he raved about his lady love.
“That’s just as cool as a f*ing fighter jet or dinosaur! And just as rarely seen.” LOL.
And just so that things didn’t get too Kim-centric, Kanye talked a little more about himself too, “I don’t have fangs. I’m a porcupine. I’m a blowfish. Like, I’m a – what’s that fish that blows up? Yeah, I’m a blowfish. I’m not a shark, I’m a blowfish… 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.”
Well, whatever you do Kanye, don’t do what this guy did.
