GQ just released their August issue today, with Kanye West gracing the cover. The interview covers everything from his marriage to Kim, being a celebrity, a father, designing fashion, and his upcoming project. Oh yeah, and it wouldn't be a Kanye interview without some outlandish quotes, right?
On his life constantly being documented:
“I hope we don’t see no paparazzi today. Because I’m still getting acquainted with these jogging pants I threw on. Like, ‘That’s not my statement!’”
Apparently, hes a blowfish:
"I'm a blowfish. I'm not a shark, I'm a blowfish. So that perfect example about me hitting my head [he walked into a street sign and it was caught by paparazzi], it's like a blowfish. 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."
On the toilets at the wedding ceremony (which were reportedly made of gold):
"The bathrooms — that usually would be a porta-potty — were wrapped in a fabric that was neutral to match the fort ... the same materials that were used to cover the bathroom, we said, 'Let's just use that [to cover a bar at the reception], because this is all we have to make the bar look better.' Which it did, in the end."
On the success of last summers 'Yeezus' and his song 'New Slaves':
"That song that I do feel is the best rap verse of all time — 'New Slaves.' The second verse. I argue that it's the best rap verse of all time. It's the Coming to America or Anchorman of a verse. You know, it's got the funny shit. It's got the antagonization. It's got patterns. It's got social and political consciousness. It's got struggle. It's got bravado. It's everything that a rap verse is supposed to be."
