Kanye West Talks About Beyonce & Jay Z Skipping His Wedding

Kanye West Talks About Beyonce & Jay Z Skipping His Wedding

Kanye West strikes a pose for this new photo to go along with his revealing new GQ cover story, on newsstands July 29.

Here is just a little bit of what the 37-year-old rapper opened up about:

On Beyonce and Jay Z skipping his wedding: “It doesn’t even matter to me whatsoever, who would show up. Because the most important person to show up there, to me, was Kim. And that’s all that matters to me. I had to fight for that for seven years. But the fact that these other people showed up that are from such different worlds but have done such dynamic things—they’re all, in a way, equal to what Kim has done in TV or what I had done in music… And so Page Six can’t overshadow the main point: Carine Roitfeld was sitting next to Kim Kardashian. That alone to me is like the same moment when I brought Mos Def to the studio with Jay Z.”

On his forty-five minute wedding toast
: “And what I talked about in it was the idea of celebrity, and celebrities being treated like blacks were in the ’60s, having no rights, and the fact that people can slander your name. I said that in the toast. And I had to say this in a position where I, from the art world, am marrying Kim. And how 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. So I’m going to fight to make sure she has a better life.”

    He can’t be serious. Eh…being a celebrity is a choice. Plenty of celebrity kids stay out of the limelight and have plenty of privacy. It’s your job to protect her!!!!

    You and your wife CHOOSE to have cameras in your home for her “reality” show, you choose to share pictures of North on social media, you choose to live in LA where paparazzi is crazy. Being black in the 60′s and not having civil rights was not a choice and it had negative consequences for the life chances and opportunities for millions of people.

    Celebrities are a small group of privileged people who actively maintain their celebrity status. I agree that paparazzi go too far with chasing kids and that’s why I like the no kids policy idea, but come on! A little perspective please, you’re not a victim. I really can’t stand Kanye…he needs to get educated.

    This ugly ape is delusional and thinks he’s actually important himself. His wh*re wife and him are a joke, people laugh at them daily.

    Respect is EARNED, not GIVEN. There are many celebrities that are respected in this industry. They earned respect by doing things like, not interrupting a young a girl’s speech on an award show, by not criticizing the President during a live TV broadcast aimed to helped those in need, by not pimping their daughter out in a fashion magazine, or by not resorting to violence against paparazzi. Maybe if Kanye actually showed respect towards other people, he would actually be given respect in return.

    WTF is this guy serious.. saying celebs are treated like how black people were in the 60′s? i think for him to make that kinda of comparison is ridiculous and uncalled for

    olive Says:

    I can’t believe he used the segregation in the 60′s to compare celebrities’ status. Shame on you, you fool!

    Sweetness Says:

    He’s living proof that all you need to do in this world is make hip hop music ..You can be as dumb and the most idiotic baffoon..BUT the world will kiss his *** and give him cover of magazines and pay him big celebrity $$$. Whereas your local firemen, teachers, college professors are the least rewarded. SMH.

    hmm Says:

    I dont understand this guy. He is so delusional. His mind is a true chaos. Thinking he is a god and that kim is a queen or somethin. Thinking these days celebrities are like blacks when they were slaves? are you fcking kidding me? Slaves had no option but to be slaves, you can QUIT being a celebrity and go work in some kinda hotel or some $hit. DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMNNNNNNN!!!!!! He needs to get punched in the fcking face again, I swear. Such an idioot. Nothing real and smart ever came out of his mouth.

    Cate Says:

    This fool married a famewhore who is part of a family of famwewhores and complains about the media attention!

    “And what I talked about in it was the idea of celebrity, and celebrities being treated like blacks were in the ’60s, having no rights, and the fact that people can slander your name.” I don’t even know where to start with how wrong and offensive this statement is.

    Shut up, Kanye.

    Who is Rotfield lol? Must be some fellow D list or F list like his wife Kim.
    Kims isn’t a talented Academy Award Winning Actress, she isn’t some mega-talented singer who has won multpile Grammys or a Tv actress who has won Emmys, Golden Globes,etc. She is a reality tv show hack. She is famous for leechng off of ppl like Paris Hilton, for making a sex tape and having a fake wedding. Infact she used to be Paris’ closet cleaner! That who Kanye has married. He married a nobody.
    And please, the fact that he claims he doesnt care that Beyonce and Jay-Z didnt attend shows that he did care!
    And your daughter is not a celebrity. Nobody cares about her. She is not on the level that Prince George or Brangelinas kids or Tom Cruises Suri are on. The paps would kill for pics of those ppls kids. Nobody would make an effort to go after some porn stars and a deluisonal rappers child.

    I didn’t know wearing designer clothing and being millionaires was the same as being bitten police dogs and lynched by racists. Thanks for the education, Kanye!

    Stephanie Says:

    He seriously makes me want to throw up… don’t find him attractive at all a and when he opens his mouth, he’s even uglier.

    “Roitfeld” is actually Carine Roitfeld, a former editor in chief of Vogue Paris, former model and writer. Basically, an icon in the fashion world, much like Anna Wintour. He’s such a name-dropping famewhore that he will do ANYTHING to get well-respected, intelligent classy women to associate with that piece of trash he calls his wife. You can squeeze her into as many designer clothes as you want, she still looks like a cheap hooker. I don’t know why Carine Roitfeld and Anna Wintour even give him the time of day. They’re feeding into his delusions of self importance.

    Also, referring to his guests as people who are “all, in a way, equal to what Kim has done in TV.” What has she done for anyone except ***** herself around to anyone who will buy her five minutes of fame? And he’s comparing respected businessmen/women, actors, entertainers, designers, philanthropists, etc to a reality TV star who got famous for a sex tape?

    This idiot needs psychiatric help. The only thing I only partly agree with is baby North. You’re right, she didn’t choose to be born into celebrity? But guess what? The issue isn’t celebrity. The problem is that she has you two to call Mommy and Daddy.

    His head is so far up his butt, he can taste his own feces and what he ate the night before.

    Joelle Says:

    “equal to what Kim has done in TV”
    That statement is hilarious. He talks as if Kim is some tv icon or legend. She’s just a fame w hore who had to drop her s ex tape with her boyfriend to become famous. Shaking my head. This is the woman he admires and has been pursuing for seven years. Wonder why he didn’t marry her in those seven years, like before she married Kris. These two have such an over blown sense of who they are. They belong together.

    omg Says:

    Yeah it’s so hard being a celebrity lol

    Try being a passenger on a malaysian airlines. Better yet, try being a family member of a passenger of flight 370 or 17 missing and dead.

    He’s such such an *****

    If he gets treated like crap is only because he is a ****** human being, not because of his celebrity.

    The things he says are so disrespectful to people with real life problems.

    ThinkingOutLoud Says:

    I agree, his head is a smidgen up his butt.. however, the Kardashians put a new face on reality tv, which (however annoying you may find it) is quite important for today’s media. (the reality shows before hand were about winning prizes, they are about “watch me be rich just because”)

    Slight digression – Kanye is a very handsome man despite his supposed personality (because none of us have met or spent time with him, we only see what he lets us see)

    Being a celebrity isn’t always a choice.. people want to be professional musicians, artists, dancers etc.. it’s the public who chooses to spend collective millions on watching them do what they do.. we did this. We put them on a pedestal and get mad when they think their schidt don’t stink lol. Im sure it’s pretty rough being a celebrity though.. people stalking you, photographing you, and then all those strangers hanging out behind their laptops criticizing everything you do even though they’ve never met you.. I can imagine it’s quite frustrating… but I wouldn’t know.. it’s not like I’m kanye……………

    WinTFis that? Says:

    Ahh Sweet Justice! A few years back, he got on stage and made a complete A** of himself by disrespecting Taylor Swift. Insinuating that her award she won should’ve went to Beyoncé. Now, her and Jay-Z didn’t even show up for his wedding LOL. Gotta love it!!
