Kanye West Compared The Idea Of Being A Celebrity To Being Black In The '60s In His Wedding Speech! Read His Explanation HERE!
Everyone was dying to know what went down during the couple's lavish Italian nuptials. It's only been two months since Kimye tied the knot and people are STILL talking about it!
Leading up to the wedding, the majority of the reports talked about Kim's wedding dress to the decor of the event and everything in between.
However, there was one publication that went on and on about the supposed gold toilets at Kimye's wedding.
They even claimed that Kanyeezy gave a 45-minute wedding speech that revolved around the one person he loves the most: himself!
LOLz! Just kidding, we all know he loves Kimmy and North West the most!
Not to be outdone by that allegation, the All Falls Down rapper explained to GQ what he talked about during his wedding speech!
"…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.
In the speech, I talked about the idea of collaboration and all the people involved working together and being able to change things. Meaning there was a time for two or three years where fashion designers wouldn't give Kim dresses. There was a time they wouldn't even let me be at shows. Now the idea that Kim is in a Givenchy Couture dress is raising the communication. Because people would be more apt to be like, "Celebrities don't really have style. Celebrities can't dress. Celebrities are less educated." But they haven't had the chance to be able to break through and have Carine Roitfeld sitting right there. Carine Roitfeld is the Walt Disney of what Tumblr is today. She is the Kanye West of what Tumblr is today. She's the single most important person to what street style is today. And she was at the wedding seven seats down from Kim, who is one of the number one fashion plates of today. So I said, "Wow, Carine is seven seats down from Kim. Farnaz [Farjam], the producer of the Kardashians and the producer of The Real World, is four seats down from [director] Steve McQueen. And four seats, because in between them is Hosain [Rahman] from Jawbone." This is what I talked about. That was not a forty-five-minute speech to myself. Do you realize what that means for those people to be in that close of a proximity to each other?"
That's definitely not a 45-minute ode to Kanye West speech!
While we totally understand Yeezus's frustration with the media being able to say whatever they want about him or his family without any repercussions, it doesn't amount up to what people of color had to endure back in the '60s!
'Ye goes on rants a lot during his tours, but this was your wedding day — one of the happiest days of a person's life!
Leave all that anger toward the world behind and immerse yourself in the beautiful moment with your beautiful wife!
